Taking TIME Off Has Proven to Make You More Money!

Three Girlfriends Sitting On Steps Of Building

Taking time off work—I call it your FLEX time—will make you more money.

Here’s why:

1) You are more interesting to your staff and clients.
2) Creativity is better when you are not rushed.
3) You make better, more focused, decisions.
4) When you are happier, you make more money.

These are just a few relevant facts.

Last Thursday my friend Kerrie, who I haven’t spent time with for a while, texted me for some midafternoon GIRL time!

We met up at 1:30 and walked the railroad tracks with my dog, Juliette.  She had a client at three, and my calendar allowed me to spend the rest of the day relaxing!

Every month many of my clients and I have a week off or a three-day weekend to rejuvenate our money-making skills. We basically live a better life. Quality of life plays into making money!

Why is this important for you?
Because if you want to make more money, you want to create space in your life.

You’ll know if you have space because when moments like this come up, you can either relax that day or within a few days. Meaning you can take time off this week to enjoy friend time.

How does having SPARE time make you more money?

It makes you interesting to the rest of the world.

You might read my emails and ask yourself why they connect so deeply.
How come you feel like these messages are written just for you?

It’s because we all truly have the same challenges in life (to different degrees) and we all want to be happy.

So when I write weekly copy, it’s to do two things:

• Connect with you and develop a deeper friendship
• Relate to you to help you make more money and live a bigger life!

The best way to do that is to use STORYtelling.
Like THIS!

If you want to make more money, you MUST, not should, create more flex time in your schedule.

I have two high-end clients right now struggling with taking time off. They’ve both hit their numbers and have SPACE in their calendar.

Because they have flex time, they want to FILL it with another THING to make money! It’s addicting to chase money, but it’s not the best way to strategize your life. You can’t take it with you when you die.

However, they are both clients who still worry about money even though both make GREAT money. Over $300,000 a year. They also both have developed that while taking FLEX time.

To take them bigger, they need to GROW their lives.
Have more fun. Become UNIQUE and share that uniqueness on Facebook and with their lists.

That connects and attracts more business than they could possibly handle.

Next step!
Replace themselves.

How would you like to grow your business so that someone else can work 80% of the workload? No, that doesn’t mean you just check out after that, although I’m sure many would think that would be ideal!

When you get to this stage, you are cash rich and SMART!
You don’t want every day to be ideal time. You want to start a nonprofit, think of ways to grow your company, and of course fall in love all over again with your lover!

Life and Business go hand in hand!
If you want to make more money, you’ve got to have a long-term plan to do so.

That plan eventually has other people working your business with you.

Start Building your LONG-TERM team!

Hope this helps.
