Why Your Family Wants You To Quit Your Job

Why Your Family Wants You To Quit Your Job

First things first. Every now and then, we need to center ourselves and think about what’s really the most important to us.

What’s most important to you?

Saying Family RocketshipAs the saying goes, “when you’re lying on your deathbed, you’re not going to wish you’d just spent more time at the office.”

I’m willing to bet that family will be the most important thing to you.

In fact, family is kind of the whole point of it all.

So in today’s busy world, how can you build your life around your family?

It seems many people are caught working so hard to make ends meet that they spend their best waking hours away from their families.

In fact, most people only spend nights and weekends with their loved ones and maybe a tiny vacation once a year.

When you think about what’s truly most important to you, you see how backwards that is.

There’s a better way. You can build a family-centered life.

But what about money?

Clone My Business: Make Money, Do Cool Stuff

ME: “Hi, I’m Sean. Nice to meet you!”

TOURIST: “Hi Sean, so what are you doing in Cozumel?”

ME: “Oh I live here with my family.”

TOURIST: “Oh wow! That’s great! Do you work for a hotel here or one of the diamond stores?”

ME: “Nope. I own a company in the U.S. that helps local businesses with their online marketing. As long as I have an internet connection, I can put food on the table.”

TOURIST: “What brought you to Cozumel?”

ME: “Scuba diving mostly. We just plain wanted to live here.”

Next month, we will have been in Cozumel, Mexico for two years. 2 years! It’s crazy how fast time flies!

Same ‘Ol Conversation

I’ve had that conversation above about 100 times at least. Probably more.

After finding out I’m not a fellow tourist, the number one question people always want to know is how do I pay for it? How do I get to live here when they’re just on vacation from their job?

The plain fact is that I created a lifestyle business, that was internet-based, so I could do what I get to do.

It’s really that simple.

The business itself is really simple. So simple in fact, that I’ve already successfully taught others how to do it!

The 7 Best Books on Lifestyle Design

We live in a day in age where anything is possible. You decide what you want, figure out a way to pay for it, then go and do it!

It’s really that simple.

Nobody said you have to stay at a job doing something you don’t like.

But if you’re like me, and the idea of creating your own ideal lifestyle doesn’t come naturally, I’ve made up this little book list as a starting point.

Below are 7 of my favorite books on lifestyle design.

While they may not be directly related to “living on a tropical island”, they all relate to taking control of your own life, money, entrepreneurship, and everything else that goes into doing the thing.

You’ll also notice most of them are not all “rah-rah you-can-do-it” Tony Robbins style. Most of them give you the actual nuts and bolts you need to get started.

Now for the list…

The 4 Hour Workweek

Four Hour Workweek Tim Ferriss is the Godfather of lifestyle design. I picked this book up at Costco almost 7 years ago. It blew my mind.

It took me a few years to actually get it and apply it but I’m so glad I did. I can honestly say I’m where I’m at today because of this book.

If you’re looking to get a solid understanding of what all these “lifestyle designers” are talking about, The Four Hour Workweek is the best place to start.

 

The Millionaire Fastlane

The Millionaire FastlaneA buddy of mine handed me this book a while back and said “this is by far the best book I’ve ever read on money and business”.

MJ DeMarco self published this amazing book and I’ve since tossed any other business/money/investing books out the window. Really.

This book is amazingly underrated but those who’ve read it, get it.

This book will help you get into the right mindset regarding money and get into the right business to achieve your goals.
