I've been to Italy and saw Pope John Paul (alive and deceased)
I've been to Paris and went to the top of the Eiffel tower.
I've been to Switzerland and went paragliding over the Swiss Alps.
And I've seen some crazy stuff all over (pre-2016).
All of that was really nice. They were just about site seeing and being a basic "tourist". Those trips were about exploring the world and trying to figure out who I was inside. They were cool and memorable.
But nothing beats a #business trip. Nothing.Since 2016, every single big trip has been about pushing my vision forward and NOT JUST ABOUT SEEING COOL STUFF.I started going to 10
growth cons, the lamborghini fest to see clients Alex Rezende, driving my jeep clear across the USA to see a bunch of clients Jim Steg, Tim Lyons Jr., and Matt Nicol, Olga Szakal, meeting Mark Evans Dm, Tim Bratz speaking at Chris Rood Skillathon, and just recently at Tony Whatley365 Driven#society.
Once I realized the difference between a "trip"... And a "business move", my life changed.
Not only was I able to write off a bunch of awesome stuff in taxes. Not only was I able to create ALLIANCES with incredible people. Not only did my business skyrocket. Not only did I grow as a person.I also started understanding the most important piece:
Build your life AROUND your passions. Don't do it the other way. You see, that's how your love of what you're doing becomes the driver of your decision making.
That way, you don't become one of those people who do stuff that they hate 51 weeks a year... Then goes site seeing for 1 week.
Build a life around everything that you love and I promise you will love waking up and realize what you GET TO DO everyday.
