Today, we’re talking about why a big enough business is the key to designing a life and business you love.
As an entrepreneur who teaches other entrepreneurs how to design a lifestyle business, I have to say that I see a lot of hype. Not a day goes by when my Facebook newsfeed doesn’t include some variation of:
