In fact, you’d have to be a little crazy not to feel confused, lost and uncertain -- these are complex topics, when you don't have a simple framework of understanding, or know how to get the right answers.
And, I want to remind you, this is NOT your fault. I mean, if I felt completely lost when it came to how legal, insurance, financial and tax systems could support me, and I had been a corporate tax lawyer who had worked on transactions for Warren Buffet, how in the heck could you possibly have learned what you need to really do business the right way?!?
But, listen, if I had learned about the legal, insurance, financial and tax systems designed to support and protect me as a business owner, I could have saved so much time, so much money, and kept going, kept serving, and kept growing instead of making such costly mistakes and walking away… and I’d have a lot more money in my bank today.
Instead, I chose to walk away from business altogether, file bankruptcy and move to a farm where I could live the simple life, and give up my dreams of big impact, and making a real difference in the world.
After living “the simple life” for a while, and looking at the choices I had made -- as well as praying for guidance, I saw that I would never be happy not making a real difference ... what I needed was not to run, but to grow up, so I could show up!
What I needed was to invest the time, energy, attention and money (we call these your TEAM resources) to learn about the legal, insurance, financial and tax systems that were there designed to support me as a business owner.
So that’s exactly what I did. And, now, I want you to do the same ... because you KNOW the world needs you and your work in the world right now ... and, if not the world, think of your family, your community, your clients ... they need you now.
