Indie Business Owners Redefine Working For A Living
Last night, I watched a little of The Billionaire Inside. Donald Trump was the guest and one of the things he talked about was how his father worked all the time. "There was never a time when he wasn't working," said Trump. "He hated to take a day of vacation, and then couldn't wait to return to work. He had a passion for it. It was all he wanted to do."
Isn't that what being Indie is all about? The 600+ members of the Indie Beauty Network are all very different, but we have one thing in common. We work in the morning, we work in the afternoon, we work at night. We are thinking about work as we fix dinner. We are conjuring up new products as we nurse our babies, load the dishwasher and take the clothes out of the washing machine. We are taking notes about work when we're stuck in traffic. It's work work work. And we love it love it love it.
We love it so much that it's not work. As Indie Business Owners, we make a living doing what we love to do. That's not work. Instead, it's like being high all the time. It's stress, but not stress. It's pure, unadulterated fulfillment. It's purposeful, and as it was for Trump Sr., it's more than just how we earn a living. It's how we live.
