It was in 2005 when I hired my first VA. But it was only in 2007 when I finally read the 4 hour work week. After reading it, I realized I had everything I needed to live that lifestyle. All I needed to do was make a couple of tweaks.
Since then, I’ve been working roughly 17 hours a week. I can actually do a lot less. I can even choose not to work at all. And I’m working 17 hours instead because I enjoy it.
The reason I’ve been able to live the 4 hour work week was because of 2 things:
- I hired a virtual assistant
- I was forced into it in 2006
The process started when I hired my first VA. I was forced into learning how to train and delegate when I had to step away from my business in 2006. And over the years, I refined the process to the point that by 2008, I only really need to work an hour a week.
You don’t have to wait for a life changing event to start living the 4 hour work week. You can start by learning how to outsource to a virtual assistant. You can start by learning how to make outsourcing work for your business.
And you can learn all that by getting my book: Outsourcing Lever. It’s a free book. I’m giving away physical copies, just pay for shipping. In there you’ll read about how I was forced into learning to depend on my virtual assistants and how I have made that process work ever since.
