OK, I fell behind with my blogs and as mentioned in my #Day5 and didn’t have enough time to truly write down my ideal day. What I did was copy some content from a similar exercise that I did when I first launched my business three years ago.
This was the first time for a while that I’d read what I’d written and do you know what? I’ve achieved a fair amount of those goals as many of my days actually follow the format that I wrote about!
I do now work virtually most of the time and have regular clients; I network locally to connect with business owners and potential new customers; I’m much more active online with social media and blogging (including certain challenges) and have obtained clients in this way. I have the freedom to work with the clients that I want to and to refuse anything that doesn’t fit with my dreams – declining a job offer for example. It felt so liberating and right to be able to say “No!”.
So onto the next stage of living my life on my own terms as my dream has changed. Instead of owning a lovely house and garden, I want to travel, visit beautiful places, gain new experiences and form friendships. I identified that pet sitting was one way of achieving this without launching into a round the world backpacking trip, so I’m registered with a couple of websites.
To begin with I’ve taken on assignments within a couple of hours from my current home, but by next year I’ll be in a position to travel abroad and for longer periods of time – living my dream life 🙂
