Coffee, coffee, coffee…..
Today, I’m working from a local coffee house (not Starbucks).
There is the obligatory barista with the cool hat, customized facial hair and flannel shirt who understands coffee like a gem expert can describe a quality diamond.
When I work from a new coffee house, I grab their “house blend” so I can compare to other places. Then, I find the best possible seat and look for the wifi information.
Having a location independent lifestyle business is liberating and fun. Being able to choose your work hours, the day of the week you work and your location makes life more interesting.
There is always a certain “buzz” in the coffee house in the morning when all the entrepreneurs come in for a few hours to get things done for the day.
Some people are college students doing research or writing a paper, but the vast majority are people like you and me who have developed a business that provides them with the opportunity to work or live anywhere.
I used to have a large office building (nearly 6,000 sq.ft.) with a monthly overhead over $10,000 just for the building. Yikes…. not fun.
Over time, technology let me scale back my team, eliminate warehouse space, and a lot of other unnecessary crap that wasn’t fulfilling, and just a drag.
I have friends who have very little in the way of “stuff” but live a very full life.
Instead of “things” they invest in experiences like travel, dinners, adventures and shows.
I have one friend who lives in Las Vegas. He doesn’t own a car. (Insert Uber/Lyft). He rents a small (awesome) apartment for $1200/month. He works 100% online. He gets to sleep in each day and then workout when he’s ready.
He bounces around between Vegas, LA, Austin, Nashville and goes to Europe and Asia a couple times each year.
His business generates around $12,000/month, but his TOTAL expenses are less than $4k. Do the math. Even after taxes and misc. expenses, he’s got a great life.
His business offers coaching/consulting to entrepreneurs. He also dabbles in eCommerce on eBay and Amazon.
Yes, he does a lot of weekly work from Starbucks. I still think he should try some small independent coffee places which have more character. But, I digress. At least he makes his own rules, his own hours, and forges his own path. And that’s pretty cool in my book.
Yeah… it’s pretty awesome.
You can do the same.
If you are tired of “the traditional way of doing business and living your life” you can change it in an instant. You just need to decide now!
Thanks for reading.
