Why did you move from corpo to solo?
I am often asked this question.
It's true, I could have stayed in my field of expertise, taken an executive job with a good salary and all the privileges that go with it. But after reflection, I decided to put my time ahead of my career for three reasons:
1. I have built a life where I no longer need a salary to live.
This is the concept of financial independence.
Principle=> Bring value, increase earnings, turn earnings into investment
2. This is not because I am no longer obliged to work that I do not want to.
I followed my passions and combined them in a business.
Reading, writing, thinking, sharing. I've always loved doing it, it led me to create a blog.
Helping someone to achieve their dreams, having a quality exchange, led me to coach.
I don't know where this opportunity will take me (like any business creation) but I'm having a great time living this adventure.
Principle => You only have one life. Live it intentionally.
3. I am amazed by the potential of the internet.
As a kid, I imagined myself creating a company with unlimited potential or climbing the corporate ladder (the path that came to me). I was not interested in a small store that would limit me geographically.
But today the Internet offers a third possibility. To turn a passion into a business with unlimited distribution. And all this with very little investment.
Principle => Take advantage of the distribution power of the internet and limit my working time from 4 to 6 hours a day.
There is no single path.
The way (may) vary with each period of life.
Everyone has to find his own. But remember that there is always a wide range of options. To discover them, we must cultivate reflection and intention.
