A bunch of years ago I was doing a conference call for a group of people who were in the downline of the first network marketing company we built.
This was around 2002, and technology wasn’t what it is today. Calls got dropped frequently. And at some point I got booted off the line.
When I dialed back in, one of the guys, Joe was joking around. He said, “we thought you won the lottery and got rid of all this.”
Without missing a beat I said, “Joe, if I won the lottery I’d still be here. This is what I love to do.”
I said that because I meant it. I still do.
No, we’re not building that company anymore.
And no, Diane and I aren’t putting our focus into building a traditional multilevel business, though we have plenty of income streams, including residuals from network marketing companies.
(including our first one, although we stopped building it almost ten years ago.)
But the LOVE AND PASSION for what we do…that’s never changed.
The excitement of helping someone transition from shy, small and scared…to bold, big and brave…
Ain’t nothing better.
There are lots of ways to do that. You don’t have to be building a home business. You can do that in pretty much any career, if you see yourself and what you do as important.
Last I checked, Joe was out of the home business industry. No surprise there…it was a way to make money, not a way to live with joy and purpose.
How much money would it take to get you out of what you do to keep your financial head above water?
It’s an important question. It’s a grown up question.
Would a million be enough?
That’s probably not going to happen. But how much on a regular basis? Two thousand dollars a month? Five? Ten?
How many pounds or euros, since we’re going all over the world?
Know the answer to that question.
Get yourself a plan to make it happen.
And decide what you want the next phase to look like.
And here’s my suggestion…
Move into doing something where you’re doing it for the love, the energy, the joy of doing it.
Not for the money.
But it’s cool to make lots of money while you’re doing it. After all, that entices people to learn how to do what you do.
And that could be their own call to freedom!
I heard it said years ago. “You want to get to the point where you move from money to meaning.”
That’s true, especially because most people who start any kind of home business won’t break through to the big bucks. That’s not negativity…that’s statistics.
But if they do it right, they will see, hear and feel things that will help them in every part of their life.
They’ll be happier, healthier and stronger.
Their self-confidence will increase. Their relationships will improve. Or maybe they will be willing to make important changes that are long overdue.
It’s why I created HOW TO RECEIVE.
And it’s why people who coach with me often make more money, but do it from a place of strength and confidence.
And it’s why my passion project is THE T3 METHOD: Total Transformation Training…so your body is an ally on the journey, not an enemy.
And it’s why I’ll be joining one of the most powerful home business trainers in the space at NO EXCUSES 6, who also just happens to be my wife.
How much is enough?
How much do you want to live without waiting for the big score, so you can finally do what you love?
What are you doing now? How much joy and passion are you putting into it, even if it’s not your final destination?
How much good are you creating in the lives of those you serve, either directly or indirectly?
