Thriving Entrepreneur – Shaping the Life You Have Into the Life You Want

Today, we are joined by Nafissa Shireen for the second time. For those of you who don’t know, Nafissa had been a featured guest on my show way back in 2015 entitled Living With Your Business with Nafissa Shireen.

Nafissa will be sharing with us the importance of having a life that works for us and building a business that fits around that. “Life is about us. It’s not about the money. It’s not about the systems. Although those are really important things; you need them. But none of that’s going to work unless you get really free on the inside first. That internal freedom is what allows you to build that.” she said.

Tangible action steps to help you define yourself:

Allow yourself to have the thoughts that you would maybe shut down. Start to ask yourself, “What if?”
Allow yourself to let life show you. Allow yourself to get into situations or make a decision where you can say, “I love this!”
Allow yourself to experiment and try things.
Take the time to determine the kind of life you want to live then start looking at your business and other areas of your life and learn to shape the life you have into the life that you want. Listen in to this amazing interview with Steve Kidd and Nafissa Shireen on Thriving Entrepreneur.

Thriving Entrepreneur – When Passion Meets Business

What’s important to you in this world?

If money wasn’t an issue, what would you spend your time doing?

We are joined today by Elliot Kay who’s going to talk about business strategies that you can do so you can have a more peaceful life and do more of what you love and get paid for it.

Build the lifestyle in line with your values, what you want to achieve and what will give you fulfillment
Do what you love and monetize it so you can have not only happiness but fulfillment too.
“Happiness is unsustainable in the long term. You’ll have happy days, and you’ll have sad days. But when you do what you love, and you’re building a business that you love in a sustainable fashion, you’ll have fulfillment. And for me, fulfillment is the ultimate; even more than happiness. I’d rather wake up fulfilled every day than happy every day. If I’m happy every day, at some point I’m going to crash. But If I’m fulfilled, it’s more manageable. So do what you love.” — Elliot
