What is Freedom?
It’s different to everyone right?
For those that have set up businesses though, I’ve discovered the key reason they did that is for Freedom. And Freedom doesn’t necessarily mean selling up and moving on.

You're preparing for the architect to arrive at your place. You’re super excited. This is your dream home. The plans are out.
The first thing you’re presented with is the mechanics of how the garden shed will be structured and laid out. What? Why would they do that?
Yes the garden shed is an important part of your dream home. One you will certainly spend quite some time in I’m sure. And I hope it’s a beautiful space for you. I really do.
But it doesn’t show you what you need to know, at that time. To be able to instantly see what your place will look like. You need to be presented first up with the big picture. Your HOME.
This guy has just broken out of his old, restrictive skin. It's now served its purpose as a protective layer while he lived underground, anywhere between 2 and 17 years (yes, seriously). So at this point, he's only got 5-6 weeks to live. He's got to evolve, and quickly so he can fly about and do those things he's been waiting all those years to do - sit clicking in the trees, find that mate and keep the circle of life going.
Smart business owners follow a similar transformation as their business grows. They 'let go' and move out of the underground to new pastures and areas of focus and action. But it can be easier said than done shedding that skin huh?
