We had an amazing conversation on today’s show with Tom Sylvester, who had a mission to retire by the age of 35 (and he did it by age 32!). We talk about what goes on both in goal achievement and what happens after you achieve those goals. The first half of this conversation is all about systemizing, and how to figure out what to systemize, clearing out the bottlenecks in your business, and how to back yourself out of your business so that it can run without you.
In the second half of our conversation, we discuss what life is like once your business is systemized and how to deal with the new challenges that pop up once you do not need to focus on your business as much. It’s an interesting roadmap for sure, and that’s where we both got lit up, as we talked about the issues that arise about what you do with your life moving ahead. After listening, go check out our conversations with James Altucher and Austin Sams for more insight into how to dial it in to set up your life and your business on your own terms.
“That was how I built everything…if I could just get the businesses and the income to exceed the expenses, I can pretty much not have to worry about working, and have everything covered.” – Tom Sylvester
