I told you I was impatient when I started this.
Six months ago, I set a goal to save $50,000 to take a year-long sabbatical away from client work to build Healthy Rich. By December 2023. But that seems so far away. I set the goal because I was ready to take this business to the next level now, not a year and a half from now.
I’ve spent the past six months scheming on how to make this happen faster, because I simply can’t wait. Then I realized I was stuck in all-or-nothing thinking — waiting to be perfectly set up for a big leap, instead of gradually shifting into my next phase.
So I’ve shifted. This week was my first week as what I’m calling “full time” with Healthy Rich — four Healthy Rich days (instead of one) and one freelance day per week. Between my business savings and a steady drip from freelancing, I expect to stick with this routine for at least six months, giving me tons of time to build viable revenue streams in the business.
Keep an eye out for these financial reports to see what this shift means for my bottom line!
