Well here we are in 2013, Christmas feels like a lifetime ago and life is… well beginning to look a lot like the previous year. I told myself that this year would be different, that this year would be great, but if today is any indication, it’s looking a lot like 2012 to me, which looked a lot like 2011, which looked a lot like 2010…
If this sounds familiar, don’t worry, you’re running the same self-talk as more than 95% of the population in developed countries… but with one main difference… you’re looking to take action to change your situation.
If you’ve ever dreamed of becoming your own boss, choosing your own work and working your own hours, then this book was created for you.
It’s a beautiful day here on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland and I have just returned from an early morning surf with the kids where the water was 25 degrees and the waves were a perfect 3 foot high. The lifeguards were just setting up as we were leaving and based on the amount of people out and about they’re going to have a busy day today looking after the local tourists.
I’ve got a jam-packed schedule today, with teleconferences, documents to write and people to call. I am flying to Melbourne tomorrow, so I start calling the people I need to see while there.
I call one of my contacts in Melbourne to find he’s running late thanks to the never-reliable Melbourne public transport system.
He has a young family and he sounds so stressed. He left so early he didn’t get to see his kids this morning and they’ll be in bed by the time he returns home tonight.
I was in exactly the same position 9 years ago, fighting traffic every day in my rush to get to the office in time for the first meeting, then after a hectic day, trying to get home in time to see the kids before bed (I rarely made it home in time).
Seeing my friends and clients stuck in the rut has given me inspiration to write this book and help you break free from the 9 to 5 on a minimum wage and live life to the fullest while you still have time (and health) to do so.
Now You're Consulting was written in early 2013 and is THE practical guide to riding the consulting wave!
Get on the wave, make a difference and enjoy life.
