Follow Your Gut, It’ll Very Rarely Let You Down With Chris Ducker
Everything changed for me at the end of 2009, when I suffered a horrific burnout. I was living like most entrepreneurs, working 14-hour days, six days a week, spending very little time with my family and working ‘in’ my business, instead of ‘on’ it way too much. Sure, I loved my business and the focus of building it, but I was tired. In every possible way.
Going into 2010, I put a 1-year goal in place – to become a Virtual CEO. I started a blog to chart the journey. I was going to replace myself in my business as much as possible by the end of the year. By late November 2010, I achieved the goal. Not only that, but I launched another business in the middle of that year, Virtual Staff Finder, as a result of simply listening to my online audience.
I now work an average of 6-hours a day, my workweek no longer includes Friday and I get to spend lots of time with my wife and three awesome children.
Chris’ Key Challenges
Follow your gut, it’ll very rarely let you down.
You will almost always regret saying yes more than you will saying no, learn how to say no.
