Time. It’s the one resource we all have in limited supply.
No one knows this better than a mom. Especially one staring down the end of her maternity leave, preparing to leave her little one for the first time. Well the day I’d been dreading for a very long time finally arrived and the only thing that made it a little easier for me was a plan I’d put into action 6 months earlier. One that I’d like to share with you.
This plan came out of a “chance” meeting a number of years ago, which I now view as “serendipitous”. Our paths crossed briefly as former colleagues at an Advertising Agency. We recently reconnected on Facebook and become fast friends. Her name is Shruti Owerie. MBA grad, wife and a busy mom to a beautiful 2-year old daughter. She shared this amazing opportunity with me that could not have appeared at a more appropriate time in my life.
The opportunity was to build a home-based business partnering with a multi-billion dollar, global health and wellness company. Over a two-year period, working in her spare time, Shruti replaced her 6-figure corporate income. In fact, she has now exceeded it and works 25-30 hours a week, where and when it suits her schedule and busy life. And most importantly, what does she have more of? Freedom and that precious quality time with her family we’re all after.
So, she inspired me to make a change. To invest some of my spare time now for a lot more free time later. So instead of watching reality TV shows every night like I used to, now I’m investing pockets of my time creating the reality of my dreams. I like to think of the ROI on this “time” as maximizing my Return On Life.
And so I started a movement called Your Life’s Calling. A movement that empowers and inspires people to create the life they’ve always dreamed of. It’s time to stop saying “I’m going to get into better shape”, “I’m going to start eating healthier”, “I’m going to be financially secure in 10 more years”. Your life is literally calling… Let’s live life leaner, healthier and wealthier now.
The nutritional system sponsoring Your Life’s Calling has completely changed my life. I now have more energy than I know what to do with. My skin is glowing (and so are a handful of momstown mamas). I’m back to my wedding weight and my biggest problem is that I’ve returned to work and none of my old cloths fit! Not only am I feeling better than ever but I’m helping others get their groove back and I can’t express how rewarding that is.
Now, unlike my friend, I haven’t given up my corporate job. In fact, I still enjoy what I “do”. And so I agree, that during working hours I will trade hours for dollars supporting my company’s vision and dream. But in my spare time, I’m building the life of my dreams a little faster. And you can too. With financial freedom, comes choice… You can put in a few hours a week to make enough to cover the cost of hockey or dance classes for your little one. Or you can put in more time and cover your mortgage, replace your corporate salary or even build a residual income that you can’t outlive.
I guess we’re all trying to figure out what the secret to being a great mom is. While there is no one right answer, I do believe it’s not that different from being a great wife, or friend. For me, it’s about finding the quality time to be there. Not just physically but actually being present without the worry of how much I’m spending on daycare. It’s that financial freedom gives me that peace of mind so that I can bring the most to every moment and get the most from every moment. It's what drives and excites me everyday.
So what’s Your Life’s Calling? What excites you today? What excites you about the future? What brings you joy? What fills you with an insatiable desire to live life to the fullest and make the most of the time you have with friends and family? Whatever it is, believe that you can have it and don’t settle for anything less.
