I am coming to the end of the first two months of my gap year and its all going swimmingly. I love the luxury of so much leisure time and total freedom; I am becoming addicted to Sudoku.
I have been wrapping up projects, streamlining my life and business interests and completing with my 2010 clients. I have discovered I enjoy the structure that brings to my life and that I like to have something to pin my day on, shaping my week. And, of course, its no secret I love to help people.
This morning I was writing a note to the five chums who are coming to play Cashflow with me on Saturday in these words: “this is a game which is mostly better played collaboratively than for a personal win. If we help each other, we all get a better result”.
Clunk! This is what I stand to lose in my gap year, playing creatively and collaboratively with partners for a better result for all.
So, I’ve come up with this idea… see what you think. For those who will write and say “but I thought you were on a gap year?”, this isn’t work and won’t ever become work. Thanks for your care and concern though, bless you.
I am looking to hook up with creative entrepreneurs, self-employed people and those in business who want and need a financial partner to help shorten the journey and end the struggle. These might include those in search of a non-executive director, a consultant, a JV partner or a business angel ready to donate her skills in return for the right quid pro quo.
But this works both ways too – not only do I want to offer those skills to you in your creative and entrepreneurial endeavours, but I may also want to cut you in to the deals and opportunities which are coming my way right now in gorgeous, abundant waves. Its a swap so long as we both get what we need and want.
So let’s talk. What qualities am I looking for in a business partner?
- An open mind full of lots of creative and entreprenurial spirit
- Time and money* to invest in your own financial freedom
- Get up and go, intelligence, a GSOH and robust psyche well able to withstand my “razor sharp and blunt”
- Skype so we can work together as I travel the world – fancy a trip to the Caribbean?
- A readiness to start NOW
*This isn’t for you right now if you are skint. I have another plan I am working on for you guys which I should be able to reveal long before the gap year is over.
So, what do you say? Shall we take the time to explore mutual possibilities?
Let’s begin with a no strings exploratory telephone or Skype call to see what we have to offer one other. This inevitably involves me hearing all about your goals, ideas, frustrations, your wealth profile, your finances and more. And me sharing my latest thoughts on how to become financially free from the relaxed perspective of a gap year with plenty of time to think up better ways of doing almost everything entrepreurial.
This is a lifetime offer, i.e. 3-5 years until you are out of the Rat Race. However, for the right people, I think we can do it as swiftly as three months if you are prepared to take risks and keep it simple. Yes, only three months!
