A day in the life of…

Hello Bloggers, Readers, Entrepreneurs and Inspiration Searchers! Today’s topic is business and travel:

What’s your definition of freedom in business and adventure in life?

When I was traveling the coast of Ireland I wanted to do nothing more than set up a desk on the side of the road, pull out my laptop and write for days on end. The beauty of nature inspires me to write, create and bring new ideas into action. It can be hard being creative with the same old day in, day out schedule, and traveling certainly forces me to be more creative, think outside the box and provide solutions for unique problems.Travel

I think we were all born with a desire to acquire knowledge and learn new things. Each and every one of us is up for a challenge whether it means getting active in your immediate community or exploring foreign countries for months at a time. I think the more we learn the more we will be able to define freedom in business. For me freedom in business means not having to worry about losing income because I decided to spend a month in Italy or take a random trip to the mountains to work with a different view. Adventure in life means I’ll finally be able to stay in a treehouse in a volcano (no seriously, check it out!) and tackle other places on my Airbnb wish list.

When I think of taking business on the road I know I have to plan, prepare and stay organized. Sometimes it’s just too easy to play all day and let productivity go out the window. It takes disciple, independence and determination, something I’m still working on. The comfort of working for 8-5 if the consistent income and awards for stepping it up every year. When I went from working for a large corporation to small business many naysayers told me “It’s a huge risk working in a small business.” Well, I must admit, I’m a bit of a risk taker and it generally pays off.

What risks will you take to find freedom in business and adventure in life?

True iconoclasts don’t just happen upon a novel approach. Their brains are actually wired in a way that makes them more likely to take the road less traveled

– Joe Robinson, Entrepreneur Magazine

Going against the norm has been a fun part of my life, anything from figuring out an easier way to doing a math problem (which did not always work out as teachers expect to see your work) to figuring out how to make a mid-senior level salary upon college graduation (work 3 jobs you’ll make plenty!).

However in the work place I’ve found I’m really good at doing what’s been done before. Why? Because taking a risk on the workplace is…well…risky. Lately I’ve been having more creative ideas and although sometimes shot down it’s becoming much easier to take a risk and think outside the box. As Entrepreneur magazine states that’s why people start businesses. They have a creative idea and have enough ambition to go with it. I want to be more like that so here’s to my journey down the road less traveled.
