We’ve been conditioned since a very young age to believe we have to work our lives around the obligations of a career. We take scheduled vacations, we play with our kids in the evenings after work, and we save a trip to the movies for Friday night.
It’s the way things have always been.
Because let’s face it, no matter how badly you want to be at home with your little ones or how much you want to travel you’ve got to make some money, and that means having a steady job.
Steady, reliable income means working steady, reliable hours. You can’t just come in when it suits you, or take off on a whim. Your work doesn’t care if there’s a great deal on a flight to California, and it doesn’t matter if your family needs you in Dallas.
Your work needs you here. And you need your work.
But innovations in business and technology are helping some people change the all of that. A new breed of entrepreneur is emerging that builds their business around their life, instead of their life around a job.
