As someone who has been in business for the last 12 years and has been through all the highs and lows, the answer isn’t all about working more hours!
In the early stages of building my small businesses, I thought I had to always be doing more.
Cam and I managed to build a successful business quite quickly, but the hours we were working were crazy.
We were always on the go, busy, stressed, doing a million jobs at once.
By the time we took any time off, we were exhausted and all we wanted to do was sleep!
Our son was growing up quickly and I felt like I was never spending any quality time with him.
Mmmm, not our idea of success. Quite the opposite, actually.
Then something happened that made us completely re-think how we operated our business. We suddenly realised that years had passed us by and we were no better off than when we both had stressful but well paid jobs. Nothing had changed... if anything, we were even more stressed and time poor than before. Bugger!
This is when we realised that if we wanted to truly be successful in business, we needed to MAKE OUR SMALL BUSINESS WORK FOR US.
And you know what? WE DID IT!
We completely changed how we did business, which completely changed our lives!
So now we’re sharing our passion and experience to help other Small Business Owners achieve their own dreams.
