It’s a new year.  Then economy seems headed in the right direction. And, from all the privately owned business owners I talk with they are aggressively looking to grow this year.

These are all good things, but be careful!  If you’re focused just on achieving growth without a reason you could be just as miserable with a growing business as you are with a stagnant one!

I know, you probably think I am crazy.  But, one of the main reasons that I find why most business owners are unhappy is…


Many people use the end of the year for a time of reflection.  If you didn’t now’s a good time to do it before you get too far down the road for the year.  What I want you to do is get focused on your WHY again.

Look, day-to-day you’re probably focused on creating the cash flow necessary to pay your bills and make a comfortable life for your family.  But, was that all you really had in mind when you originally took the plunge and went out on your own?  My guess is NO!

When you got started you were probably really thinking about having life independence and financial freedom. Let me ask you a question.  Will doing what you’ve been doing really get you there?

If not what change do you need to make to get there?  That’s easy, you have to make life independence and financial freedom your goal.  Your business is merely the vehicle you chose to get you there!!!

So, you need to start thinking differently about the objectives of your business and the purpose that you are growing your business.  If business self-sustainability is not an objective I can guarantee you that 3 – 5 years from now you will no closer to life independence than you are today.  I see it every day!

With the right effort in growing your business you might get to financial freedom.  But, almost certainly you will still be chained to your business and still getting up to go to WORK every day!  In fact, many of you may already be in this situation.
