Now there’s a question! And the purpose of the question, is that I am off on a course this weekend about that very subject with the fabulous Ann Wilson. So today’s (and tomorrow’s) posts are going to be short and thought provoking. I shall be inside a hotel conference room for the whole weekend learning how to be financially free – how exciting is that?!
Here’s what I shall do when I am financially free – drum roll please – what I am doing right now. You see, I love my family, my friends, my work. The only think I would change is the balance of how much time I spend on each. Family and friends would get more time, while work will still be there. Many people have those fantasy conversations of what will we do when we will the lottery, lotto, pools etc – any many will stop work immediately. That’s a sure fire way to know that you are not doing what you were put on this earth to do. If you are not passionate about it and don’t love it, how can you expect your prospects and clients to?
What I would do is more of the work I find rewarding – speaking to children in schools about being body confident, I’d volunteer more at the Look Good Feel Better events to help women with cancer to feel better, more confident and beautiful. I would still want to train people to be image consultants – with more of them – we can do more good work. I’d write more, I’d stand on stage and speak more and I’d take more holidays. Other than that – life would be just as it is. Oh – and I’d buy the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster that I drove round a track for my birthday!!!
So, what would you do if you didn’t have to earn money to pay your bills – if all of that was taken care of – what would you really do?
Have a great weekend – see you on the other side!
