Newsletter 5th May 2023: Some days 💕 get prepared – few hours only

by | Newsletters


Some days it would be so easy to throw in the towel and just laze on the sofa like a sloth munching Doritos.

And tbh some days that actually happens.

But not often.

The thing is, we know it’s not always easy to be in business for yourself.

You can’t phone in your effort and get away with it.

So we have to make the difficult choice to work most of the time even when we are the boss and no one is making us do it.

As Jerzy Gregorich more eloquently says…

“Hard choices, easy life
Easy choices, hard life.”

Which hard choices do you need to make today to enjoy a much better future?   💖


See today’s freebie selection in the P.S.
