Living and working unbound is a really great choice for anyone who is a little sassy and a lot independent. Seriously, ladies…this is probably you. So, here is what we like to call our “Unbound Handbook” or the top 5 ways to live and work totally unbound.
- Be True to Yourself
Who you are is an important part of why you do what you do, and being true to your personality and values is a priceless commodity that not all people can access.
So, ALWAYS be true to who you are in everything that you do. If something goes against your personal values, even a little bit, ditch it. If something will make you a chunk of change right now but doesn’t make sense for your business model in the long run, why bother? You’re in it for the long haul, for both yourself and your business.
Living unbound is all about being yourself and doing what you want to do, the way you want to do it. It makes sense to be true to that, right?
- Never Box Yourself In
This may seem a little bit cheesy, but it is the real deal. Never box yourself into something that doesn’t make sense for you.
That means that you should never, ever settle for something that you know is less than what you deserve because someone says you can’t do it. Or, avoid doing something because it doesn’t fit within a predetermined model of what you or your business should be. You determine what you can and cannot do. No one else.
So, take the bull by the horns and charge right out of that box. The sky’s the limit ladies, and we’re aiming for Mars.
- Hire Good People Like You
Hiring great people can be a daunting task, but if you approach it from a different perspective you’re more likely to end up with stellar employees.
Always try to hire people that are like you. They are more likely to be living and working unbound already and are more likely to share in your passion. A shared dream or passion makes for an amazing work relationship and hard working people.
- Believe in Your Passion
Don’t ever let people get you down and tell you that you can’t do something that you believe in. Your passion and resilience can move mountains if you let it.
Sometimes believing in something that doesn’t fit the norm is hard, but it’s always worth it in the end. Plus, we’ve seen people make millions doing something that makes them happy but makes zero business sense. Passion works, and it inspires others to do the same.
- Never Take No For An Answer
“No” is a word that we all learned very early on in life, and it has always had an impact on how we live and how we perceive things. Not anymore.
No doesn’t belong in your vocabulary, and you should never take no for an answer. There is always a better option, a way to circumvent the situation to make it work.
The next time someone tells you “no”, whether it be a potential client or a family member, ask them how they came to determine that “no” was the best answer and then show them how your option can work for them. Not everyone is going to be swayed, but there’s no harm in trying to approach a situation from a variety of angles.
Rules Are Meant to Be Broken
In conclusion, you make the rules. They’re yours to bend or break whenever you see fit, so now is the time for you to live and work completely unbound from the things that would hold you down.
