The crazy hoarder guide to business

Ripe, juicy strawberries… in my face.

That’s what I’m thinking about today.

How much time do you spend struggling on your business? It doesn’t have to be that way. Listen to my podcast here.

Because any day now, 10 strawberry runners are going to arrive at The Dingle and I’m all prepared. 

Yesterday, Joe and I tackled the tremendous pile of rubble and crap in the courtyard — all the old attic floorboards and beams and assorted gubbins that’s too worm-eaten to be structurally safe — and we made stuff.

We turned old floorboards into a strawberry planter. (And there’s loads more where that came from)

Upcycling for the win.

I’m not a crazy hoarder who keeps every tiny piece of crap “just in case it’s useful one day”, but I hate throwing stuff away.

It’s wasteful.

For that reason, I hate throwing time away, too.

It’s by far the most precious resource we all have. You can always make more money; but once you’ve lost a day, it’s gone forever.

I’d much rather spend my days making stuff for my garden or practising a trapeze move or reading a book in the sunshine than struggling to make my business work. Wouldn’t you?

Well, guess what? I spend a lot of my time exactly as I want to spend it.

Not quite as much as I’d like, yet… but vastly more than most business owners.

And the reason? I outsource the stuff someone else can do better than me…

But most importantly, I don’t always try to reinvent the wheel. I don’t spend hours, days, weeks trying to figure something out — I ask my mentor, or the mastermind group I’m in.

I invest in products that show me how to get stuff done faster.

How much time do you spend struggling?

I’d like to invite you to stop it. Right now. Because time is the one thing you don’t ever have enough of.

I can help you reclaim some of that lost time. Show you how to spend it on yourself and your family.

I can help you work less, and make more money.

I know I can, because I’ve done it for myself.

Want more time to yourself, while making more money?
