So how do you combine travel with business?
I have been lucky enough that my family has always enjoyed and encouraged travel, when you come from New Zealand, way down the bottom of the world you really have to get out of your comfort zone and explore.
People from New Zealand are really good travellers, we love to get out around the world and experience new things, as well as visit some of the amazing historic spots around the globe.
Getting out of your comfort zone.
I eluded to getting out of your comfort zone earlier, and was at a conference last year and the best quote I got from the conference was “growth and comfort cannot co-exist”.
What does this mean? It simply means that if you want to grow, be it in business, in relationships, with your fitness program, whatever you are doing, its not going to be easy! You’ve got to put the work in, and with hard work, smart work and persistence you can be successful.
To go from working for a safe (ish) pay check to being self employed is a challenge, but it’s worthwhile to do if you want to build your own empire.
I see so many lifestyle entrepreneurs that post photos of working from a beach, they have worked their asses off to be able to this, it doesn’t happen because you can build a website and write a post or put a cool pic on instagram or Facebook.
But by setting goals, working hard, and planning you too can have the lifestyle you want to create.
Personally, I have had success in the financial services sector, running my own business, but have worked on the fact that every 2-3 months Ill take a holiday and travel, mainly alone, but sometimes in a group.
I would like to share with the audience, my experiences, business tips, and stories, to hopefully inspire people to get out, become self employed and enjoy the lifestyle they deserve, and want to work for.
