Freedom Business Strategy
Business Strategy that will guarantee more freedom.
Welcome again. We’ve already been talking about the subject of working smarter not harder. But this article will focus on the Freedom Business Strategy. [check: Why should I start blogging]. Today I want to show you that creating a business can be fun. This is especially true for a business that will be able to offer you more time and more freedom of movement.
Let us start off by freeing 10 hours per week. A precious 10 hours you can spend on anything you want. Savor this moment and think what you could do with an extra ten hours a wee! A spa treatment? A walk in the park? Dinner with friends? Or just grabbing a few more hours of sleep! Whatever makes you tick. And, we’re only starting… so if you have a problem deciding how to manage the additional 10 hours of free time stop here. You need to know that we will eventually arrive at to 148 hours of free time PER WEEK. So maybe this article is not for you 😉 Therefore proceed with caution and read it at your own risk.
At this point, you may be asking
How the heck will I change my life and my career to get all these free hours and even more money?
How do I even start a business? – Practical business tips from an entrepreneur – Freedom Business Strategy set up.
If you are looking at freeing up time and making more money you are in the right place. 10 years ago I was working 14-16 hours a day. I was tired all the time. The money was good but I had no life. At some point, enough was enough, so I made one strategic decision that I’m sharing with you in this article.
Today, I admit that I’m financially independent. I can write this post and share my knowledge with you even if I don’t have to. The truth is that I LOVE to talk to people. I love to engage and inspire knowing that we can become better versions of ourselves. I enjoy watching beautiful life transformations. And I believe you can be part of this challenging yet inspiring journey.
No More Waffle -Let’s get straight to the point – The Freedom Business Strategy
In order to change some things in your life, you must start with making changes. You do not need to start with huge changes. You could start a say a side job. However, you can even start taking action about the life and the job you always dreamt about. Much depends on your starting point and the distance to your goals. Maybe you carry this dream in your heart or maybe you simply had enough of your life and you feel like you must change something, otherwise, you go nuts. Doesn’t matter, this is how you start creating the business/job of your life:
# 1 How to start a freedom business strategy:
- For starters, you need to have your head and a piece of paper to prepare A MIND MAP – this is your master plan. The idea that will be your leading business strategy. Make sure to keep it in a place that will always remind you of the main goal. By focusing on your Mind Map you will not lose sight or your goal.
- From the technical point of view, you will need a computer/laptop/MacBook with internet access. [If you don’t have your own/business website yet you should get one asap -> read this article ]
- It’s recommendable to have a smartphone that can sync files and apps across devices. It will allow you to work from different places whenever you need. Make sure to use smart apps that can make your life easier. You can find My TOP APPS LIST below.
- Social media accounts as a mean of communication with the world 😉 Yes, that’ very important. You need to tell people what you are doing, you need to mark your presence in the virtual web. This is how you are going to build your audience and your “potential clients”
- Maybe you have a partner or someone who would like to work with you on your vision. Or there is someone you trust and you want to cooperate with you. Bring this person on board and do brainstorming. That’s the most creative way to create great ideas that world doesn’t know about yet. Do not worry about not being original. It is the way you bring it to the world that is going to be original.
#2 How to develop a clear vision
Think of yourself as of a leader that has the power to guide hundreds of people towards the goal that you set for yourself and for your business. Think of the power you will have to motivate these people. Ask yourself: how will I do this?
What words would you use? What tools would you bring to the table to help them build the trust with you? Yes, owning a business is a responsible position. When you declare and promise to do something you need to work on it till you succeed. Dedication and determination are key factors here. You may have the fear of failure here: “will I manage?” “will I be able to fulfil whatever I promise”… the answer is only one and remembers it well – YES YOU WILL. As long as you have the inner will to do it plus you put hard work into that you will succeed. Failure is not an option.
Here is some help with the first step of creating your freedom business strategy.
Project forward. Have a look at how you want to see yourself in 3-5 years and imagine your ideal future vision. What does it look like? What steps can you take right now to begin turning your future vision into your current reality? Shrugging and feeling helpless is definitely not in our dictionary!
#3 Have you ever tried creative thinking?
To get the most of your creativity (even if you think you’re the least creative person on this planet) and unleash the full potential of your brain try mind mapping. A Mind Map is a graphical way to represent ideas. And it’s more effective than other brainstorming and linear note-taking. Here you can get free software if you prefer to do it online; plus 85 pages PDF to read more about the technique Have a look at these examples how to create your own Mind Map.
#4 Dream Big
It’s our own self-doubt that we don’t have what it takes that can really destroy us. It’s the fear that we’ll lose the power and won’t reach the finish line. You can read about young people who became millionaires and their secret was… living the big dream they had and followed till it worked.
“The Pessimist Sees Difficulty In Every Opportunity. The Optimist Sees The Opportunity In Every Difficulty.” -Winston Churchill
#5 Making a big career change to get to the point where you do what you truly want
Maybe you were afraid you’d fail. Or afraid that you’re too old or too young looking foolish or incompetent to others.
You have more strength than you may think now. If you don’t believe so yet follow our Instagram account for daily affirmation.
Our brain is designed in a way that in the situation of danger or threat it will activate the part that is responsible for survival. It means that in the end, you will always know what to do to maintain your economic stability.
Mainly we fear that we won’t be able to stand up when we fall. We fear the illusion of hypothetic fall. The illusion is not real, so the fear must not be real. In fact, this is not a real fear. It can be the best motivator if you dare to look at it this way. It can help you prepare for many eventualities. Think of it in a positive way and you will see a completely different picture of the “hypothetic” failure that you may have in your mind.
My Tip for Today’s Freedom Business Strategy
Reframe the fears related to starting your dream business. Write down everything as it comes to your mind. Treat your problems one at a time. As soon as you find a solution to one problem move to the next.
Btw to reframe a negative thought – is to change its meaning. Try putting it in a different setting or context. In life, nothing is intrinsically good or bad, positive or negative. Events or experiences don’t have any meaning whatsoever, they have only the meaning we give to them.
The term “Reframing” comes from NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). It’s an important technique you can use with yourself and with others to free them from stereotypes. Collective thinking shows you, that you have more choices. And hey, who doesn’t want to have more choices?
#6 Money factor in business is what will bring you freedom – the ultimate Freedom Business Strategy
Money is important. You don’t enter any business without being sure you can make money on it. How can you make sure you will make any money at all?
The answer is simple – by delivering people an answer or solution to their problems. If your product or your service is such answer you can rest now, you’re on the right track. If you are still not sure don’t worry, just keep reading.
#7 You need to prepare a proper business plan.
“Failing to plan is planning to fail.”
When you’re just getting started with your business, it can be tempting to dive right into the more creative and exciting parts. But it is important that you put down a solid foundation first.
Important questions to answer: Here is how to develop your freedom business strategy!
- What is your business structure?
- Are you a sole proprietorship, a partnership, an LLC, etc.?
- What are your mission and purpose?
- Where will you be located? What are your means of doing business?
- Are you an online business or will you require a brick and mortar location?
- What is your primary product? what can you offer for free as an added value? Do proper market analysis. Check what already exists on the market. What is that people want, what is that people are willing to pay money for. Make a list of similar products/services in your country and other countries as well to compare it and think more strategically.
#8 How much does it cost?
Pricing your product is as important as creating it. Many people invent prices which they think or suspect it should be. But many times it’s totally far from reality. In order to know what should be the final price of your product, you need to prepare a draft of your expected costs.
One you know what are your costs you can add affiliation fee that you will be offering to your partners/reseller (consider as much as 30%). And the rest is your final income.
#9 You need to ask yourself: who will finance your business?
Investors aren’t likely to throw money away, especially when they don’t get enough information and expected turnover after the first year. You’ll want to demonstrate that you’ve thought long and hard about the business model you want to offer to final customers.
#10 How to sell your product/service many times?
That’s the most important thing to consider when thinking of setting up your own business. This is the bottom line of your Freedom Business Strategy. It doesn’t matter if it’s a product or a service. All you need is to think strategically: work hard with your mind, not with your hands. That’s work to smart. Not hard. You may be interested to read “Are you Book Smart or Street Smart?”
Here is how I developed by Freedom Business Strategy.
10 years ago I started an architectural studio that was offering custom made house design for individual clients. After a few years of hard work, I started rethinking the core idea of my business. I had many clients who could not make a decision on what type of house they would like. They were changing concepts for the house few times before they got to the final conclusion. That was a turning point for me. It was when I decided to close doors to individual clients and offer a ready design that people can buy on the internet.
“Off the Shelf Housing”
That was 10 years ago already! Internet was popular of course, but not as accessible with full of products and services as it is today. People were a bit sceptical when it came to buying pricey stuff online. Anyway, I decided to do the move. Time proves it was the best decision ever. Not only that it made me financially independent but also I could teach people all over the world how to sell my products. It saves me time. No longer I have to attend meetings with clients who want to build their house. They just order online and get the product delivered to their home. Plus with all available tracking systems and logistic services, it’s easier than ever.

The Whole Point of Freedom Business Strategy
If you really want to build a business that can offer you financial freedom, plus a lot of free time think of selling your product thousands of times. Don’t think per piece. Don’t focus on preparing one hot dog for each client, think of constructing/buying/owning a machine that will sell thousands of hot dogs without the need for servicing it too often. Doing things per piece will make you a slave of your own creation. And that’s a trap that many fall into. Including running your own blog. If you focus on creating interesting content only you will be an entertainer. And there are many good entertainers already, on
This includes running your own blog. If you focus on creating interesting content only, you will be an entertainer. And there are many good entertainers already, on youtube for example. Ask yourself – why should anyone spend time on reading through your content? (yes – why are you reading this anyway? ;-). Do the opposite – give people a new activity that can improve their lives. For example by creating your own online course. I’m here to teach you and lead you to that point, explain step by step how you can do even if you have never thought of it before.

Conclusion – Your Freedom Business Strategy in Action
To make it all simpler for you I’ve created this checklist… in few sentences. All you need to do in order to create a freedom business strategy:
- Prepare or create a good environment that will boost your creativity rather than bring distraction (especially during the phase of planning). Make sure to have the proper technical background [-> read this post if you think of having your business website]
- Focus. Get yourself to draw a clear vision of what you want (you can use mind mapping technique). Strategize your business in 5-year plan and 10 years plan. First, make a general plan then go into details.
- Prepare a proper business plan + budget. If necessary look for investors/partners.
- Think of business automatisation.
Work till you own it. Success is the only option.
