Today is the day we celebrate our freedom from the tyranny of British rule … and small business owners celebrate the freedom from their bosses. Now they are their own boss and creating a whole new world for themselves and their families. Following their hearts to their dreams of being independent and financially secure. Building a new model of self-employed success with their own hands. The stuff on which this great country was built upon.
Take some time to think about all that independence day means to you. Take stock of all things great and small in our lives that we sometimes take for granted. Centuries ago a die was cast that has benefited all man-kind, not just us here in the US. Some of us have taken longer than others to embrace independence as a right and realize that tyranny and dictatorship is something to rebel against. Thanks to our forefathers that paved the way for the greater good in the world.
So, thinking about your small business and your journey to financial freedom … a process that can sometimes be daunting and full of obstacles. A new approach may be in order. Taking time to discover the fun and beauty in creating your own destiny. Check out the words of wisdom below for a little thought provoking guidance.
