Are You a Freedompreneur?
by Daniel Jordi
I just came back from a 2 week Xmas and New Year vacation and it was epic. Two weeks of doing nothing else than spending time with family and close friends, Xmas shopping and eating fantastic food.
One of the big things I learned in 2015 is the importance of taking time off. It’s been a great year and I was able to take 9 weeks off in total during which my business kept running and opportunities kept coming in. For a few years now, I had this habit of setting a theme for the year.
2015 was about Exploration and with my 6 week US road trip, testing some new markets and working with my coach on expressing even more of my unique self in everything I do, it was certainly the right theme.
Most entrepreneurs I know have this habit of working 24/7.
Even if they are not physically in front of their computer, they are still unable to disconnect because of that constant *Bling* sound when a new email comes in. And of course, that email needs to be checked immediately, it could be urgent.
Over the years, I learned that there is no such thing as an urgent email. If it’s urgent, people email again. And if it’s extremely urgent, people call. But most of the time, these “urgent” emails take care of themselves if you give them a little time. Every time I send an “urgent” email to my tech support, the issue seems to solve itself as soon as I hit that send button.
I have a good friend who just barely avoided a burnout last year. He’s 28 years old. That’s just crazy to me.
I believe all entrepreneurs crave for freedom, that’s one of the reasons we are entrepreneurs. So why re-build the mouse trap we escaped from when we left corporate?
This Tuesday, I had the honour to be on Alex Inchbald‘s Breakfree Creativity Show where we discussed “6 Conversations That Matter in 2016”.
We talked about the importance of Freedom and Simplicity and how to make 2016 a year that matters.

My 2016 is all about Creation and Collaboration.
There are many things in the pipeline including another launch of LinkedREvolution, several partnerships and a new online training for business owners to help them create exponential partnerships with Influencers.
What is your 2016 all about?
