Your TIME is worth something. 🕑 No matter what you do, life is a game of time and money, right? For the first 5 years of my business I only got paid when I showed up. The only way I could scale my business was through working more, that was it. There was nothing scaleable about it, there wasn’t a secret recipe to make money while I slept. I was in the business of trading time for money. ✖️ I realized a couple years ago how very fleeting and special time is. I can always create more services, products, and offers, but time? I can’t get that back, ever. 👇🏼 Anyone, no matter what line of business you’re in or what your work style is, you have the ability to make small shifts to begin transitioning away from trading your time for money. 👏🏼 Let’s really get into the tactical steps to make it happen. Press play right now.
