How do you allow yourself to truly experience the freedom that comes from implementing the CRM strategy? What is the best way to get involved in other businesses without getting distracted?

Takeaways + Tactics
For successful people, work and life are not an “either/or” choice. It’s just about maximizing opportunities to build a really big lifestyle.
You don’t have to be the best at everything. Hire the best for those other things.
Choose to leverage into other businesses that are synergistic with the business that helped you become successful. This way, you won’t be as distracted by trying to learn a completely new industry.
Your net worth will be the average of the net worth of your 5 closest friends.
At the start of the show, we talked about how you can travel the world and still have your business running well. We then talked about how work for really successful people is intertwined with their lives. We also discussed the importance of building the right relationships and investing in synergistic businesses.
We also covered:
Proximity mentorship relationships and how to bring value to them
How to leverage yourself and invest in your growth
The value of pushing yourself to implement strategies that will allow you to level up
Playing bigger isn’t just about the goals we set. It’s about who we spend our time with, how willing we are to learn and grow, and what we invest in. When you’ve got great systems in place and great people running the systems, that gives you the freedom to keep playing bigger. You also have to be in the right field. If the thing you’re doing is something that you’re wanting to walk away from everyday, and you can only handle it for a few hours-- you’re doing the wrong thing.
