Rather than the sale of my business, I made a lifestyle choice to start a business. Building up a business that I can work around my family was my lifestyle choice.

Hi Lisa,

A great post and a great idea! I would enjoy catching up over a coffee and taking time to discuss possible synergies. Tuesday of next week would suit me and I am happy to meet wherever suits you.

In addition to my SSME profile you can find me on www.wardourcapital.com or LinkedIn.

Cheers,

Neil.

Oh Neil, I just saw this now! It would be great to meet you. Online is great, face to face is better! I spend time in both Melbourne and Adelaide and this time around will be in conference for 3 days honing my speaking skills. I will get your number off of your website and give you a call for the next trip. Looking forward to meeting you.

I would avoid all non-essential debt. Debt strangles your cash flow and makes it harder to live the life of your dreams. Focus your money on experiences not things. The experiences you'll remember. The things you'll use a few times and forget or get rid of them.

I like to have a routine day to day, but it's hard getting into a routine. I don't sleep much. ~5hours/day. I should sleep more but I like to get up early, get some exercise in, sort out the important emails and prioritise calendar tasks for the day. Ideally, I'll do the tasks that require significant thought early on in the day and do less cerebral work later on as I lose energy, but that doesn't always happen.

Thanks for the answer Yee. It is always interesting to hear how other entrepreneurs and business owners split up their days.

​Hi Jef, I wish I could get by on the 5 hours sleep Yee has, alas I am an 8 hour person. That said, to get my day started I schedule accountability, conference, and industry training webinars/calls as early as 6.30am. I find the interaction helps me increase my energy levels. Im one to work flat out all day and then crash early evening, get a second wind, and then put some more in later in the evening. For anyone reading, its not sustainable over the long term - I just have four businesses on the go at the moment and it is what is needed in the short term. My perfect day would include some morning exercise too. How about you Jef, whats your perfect day?

Yee, I like what everyone else has said. I would like to contribute another line of thought borne out of a recent experience.

Last week I went to an entrepreneurs meetup. There were 12 of us that met for a meal at a local cafe. I found this a really stimulating environment in that I got to connect with the four people I was seated next to on a much deeper level than I normally would have at a meet and greet. It felt way more relaxed and authentic.

More food for thought. pun intended ;-)

Google and thou shalt find.

I don't actually know broden personally. His account was banned but I suspect that he's still lurking around buying large quantity of cheap items from deals posted on OzBargain & resell them.

Hi Wendy
I know I'm coming into the game a little late here but I thought I'd share some personal insight. I've been working with business owners for more than 25 years and tracking some metrics for the last 7 years as it relates to business success and personal satisfaction. What I have learned is that ...  Continue Reading
