A Lifestyle Entrepreneur is someone who has chosen to start a business not just to make money, but to create the life they want (or need) to live.
There are six main reasons why people become Lifestyle Entrepreneurs:
- They want to do work that they are passionate about
- They need flexibility to care for children or loved one
- They want flexibility to live their ideal life
- They need to control the physical demands of their work due to physical limitations, injuries, or illness
- They want to live in a beautiful place that doesn’t have a lot of jobs
- They don’t want to (or aren’t able to successfully) work for a boss
Being a Lifestyle Entrepreneur is a great way to create the life you want to live. It’s not easy at first (it usually takes 3-5 years for a business to be successful), but it is a journey that can take you to a life that working a 9 to 5 job cannot create.
