GUEST: Matthew Turner
Escape the hustle when you stop trying to work harder and longer as you search for happiness in money, fame and power.
If you are a small business owner, there is a good chance you feel a little bit like a gerbil on a treadmill. You’re running and chasing the food, but you never quite catch it. Our guest, author Matthew Turner doesn’t think it needs to be that way. In his new book Beyond the Pale, he explains that many of us think we own a business, but somehow it starts to own us.
When you make a decision to work less, if forces you to think about who do you want to work with? If you have to choose a type of client what does that client look like? If you are going to choose one personal project what will it be? And finally, what do you want to commit to over the next year, two years, three years.
When Matthew made the change in his business he ended up working half the time and earning twice as much.
