Money Doesn’t Take a Vacation, it Makes the Vacation
Last month I went on a road trip in Kending, Taiwan (also frequently spelled Kenting) and decided to bring my laptop with me. I actually purposefully bought this scooter because the trunk was big enough to fit my 15.6″ laptop inside. Anyways, before I left on the roadtrip I had a problem with a customer who said they didn’t receive their package so I decided to bring my laptop so I could deal with it once I got down to Kending. As I was driving I started feeling sorry for myself having to “work” and bring my laptop down to the awesome beaches in Kending but then it hit me.
This is my life. I am completely location independent, I can go anywhere in the world and run my business.
Sure I have to be connected to the internet and answer emails but I wouldn’t trade that for a real job in a million years. I like getting sales and making customers happy and growing my business. The business is what is funding my entire life. So while my friends with jobs are getting drunk and not worrying about work for 3 days straight, I’ll still be thinking about my business. How to grow it, how to improve it and how to make this lifestyle last forever. Because when you’re a business owner, you don’t ever really get a vacation, but a the same time, you’re always on vacation.
So that’s why I always travel with my laptop, why I check my email at 3 am after a long night out and why I’m in a coffee shop right now on a Saturday writing this blog post.
