Why I Have Always Wanted to Work for Myself


Before Brian and I had kids, we took a month off and backpacked Europe. I remember someone telling us, "Enjoy this while you can because once you have kids there will be no more of this."

I've never been particularly good at listening to people like this, people who live their lives with such limitations.

The beautiful thing about entrepreneurship is we really do get to choose how we spend our time.

It definitely takes preparation and planning, something you have to start thinking about a year in advance maybe. In order to take off a season, we might have to work harder and longer hours during another season, but it's worth it.

It's always worth it.

This right here is why I always knew I wanted to work for myself. I never wanted anyone else to tell me how I could or could not spend my time. What about you? What made you want to become an entrepreneur? What was your driving force?

And one more thing: If you could travel anywhere for an entire month with your loved ones, where would you go? Tell me. I genuinely want to know!
