I created the "tagline" Freedom By Design while driving to a friends cottage last summer, I guess my creativity was on high and I thought, I LOVE the idea of freedom, and I LOVE all things design, what if the two could be combined! I arrived at the cottage so excited to share with my friends and colleagues my idea. They loved it too. And even when they asked questions about it, I felt confident that this is what I stand for. Over the year it has shown up in some of my Facebook posts, and especially on Instagram but I have only explained it once really and so I thought I would shed some light on what exactly I mean here!
So the question is, what is freedom to you?
This is a photo from The Big Island of Hawaii. My husband and I travelled for 9 days around the island with a car we rented and only a couple places booked to stay that we really wanted to visit. It was such an adventure! To me, this is freedom. The ability to just pick up and go, without a map, without a plan, and figure it out. Explore, have fun, live freely, not worry about money or feel like you're escaping reality. This IS reality. This is life. For me freedom means a "job" that I can take with me on adventures. Something I can do from anywhere so that I am still a part of the economy and giving back and earning income, but also having the freedom to work at the time of day that best suits me, from a coffee shop or my living room, or from the beaches of Hawaii!
I feel free when I am accomplishing something, when I am having fun, when I am with people I love, when I am deeply involved in conversation, when I receive feedback that I have helped someone's health, or inspired them to live their freedom.
So what is freedom to YOU?
This is exactly what I want to help you achieve. I want to help you design a life that feels so freeing you could just cry. I want to help you feel optimal health, because to me health is a huge component of freedom- when we see or know someone who has lost their health, we see how restrictive it is, how frustrating it is, and how it is all that really matters at that point. If I can help you to your optimal health, I feel free too.
Freedom is also financial. It is so hard to make a change in this world, or just in your own home, without the finances to allow it. Having money can be freeing, but having money is only freeing if you use it to prioritize the things that are truly freedom to you. Having actual CASH is barely interesting. It's just paper and coins (or really just numbers on a screen). It doesn't do anything. What is freeing is what it can become. A holiday, an adventure, a dinner with a loved one, a trip to Disney with the kids, a spa retreat with a girlfriend, a trip to Germany to buy a BMW with your best buddy, get creative! What would be so awesomely fun for you? THAT is what the money will buy. And you can use it to help others live more free too- donations, building schools, funding projects, and so much more.
I ask you again, what is freedom to you? Truly? Stop thinking "well I'll never have it, it's impossible, I'm too young, I'm too old, I'm stuck...". You CAN have it. If it seems far, let's start by designing your ultimate health. Then later we can chat about how to bring in more income the way you love. My favourite method to teach income building is through my partner company in direct sales, but this is because this is how I am doing this for me. I 100% encourage you to find what works best for YOU. Do you LOVE working in law, and really enjoy a 6 hour day dressing up for work and leaving the home to come home later feeling accomplished, refreshed, and happy? Then do that, let's find a way. Do you love being at home with the kids and just wish you didn't have to leave them in childcare ALL week, but maybe a few days is good? Then let's find a way to make that work. I encourage you to design you freedom and then take the steps to get there. Sometimes it means big changes, go for it! Plan it out and then take the leap. The universe will have your back if you fully trust and allow.
That is what #FreedomByDesign is. It's your life, the way you want it.
