Over the past year of this digital nomad life, we’ve noticed that there’s one central theme of everyone’s entrepreneurial journey, regardless of the industry.
We’ve all had to work through some variation of self improvement and personal development in addition to our business venture. This kind of pursuit is unlike any other path. It is unique to you which is what makes it both so empowering and also so challenging. The journey of entrepreneurship forces you to stop and ask yourself questions... the hard questions that seem easy on the surface but are often the ones most people don’t take the time to ever define.
Who am I?
What do I want for myself?
What is stopping me from getting there?
And so many more like this.
Whether you start an NPO that cleans the oceans, build a multi-million dollar empire, or are rockin’ the freelance game as web designer, you’ll only do it by getting clear on some of these questions. In order to see growth, you’ll need to get uncomfortable and take risks. You’ll need to put in the hours to learn more about yourself — your strengths, your habits, your shortcomings — and improve upon them. In addition to crunching numbers or building a sales funnel, you’ll need to understand who you are and why you are doing what you’re doing. And in doing so, both you and your business will be 10 times more powerful.
This is exactly what we’ve had to do. Not only have we stayed up late fixing a broken website or learning Facebook Ads, but we’ve had to carve out time to develop our mindset and do some soul searching.
It’s all a part of the journey. So no matter where you are in yours - whether you’re a CEO or digital nomad newbie - take some time to answer these questions, and I promise you that your business will grow with you. - 2 hours ago
