Forget Vacations

The Problem

“Seventy-one percent of American workers are “not engaged” or “actively disengaged” in their work, meaning they are emotionally disconnected from their workplaces and are less likely to be productive.” Gallup

This trend has been going on for many years.

People feel lost and are running harder than ever and making less money (in terms of earning power).


“Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from.”
Seth Godin in Tribes

“American is still a nation of freedom, but we are living like slaves. Freedom takes action. “]

Three major factors are making us a nation of slaves.


Who is Living Differently

  • Those who take control of their money and their time
  • Those who love their work
  • Those who create flexible work environments
  • Those who control the environment (Entrepreneurs and Solopreneurs)

Some Examples:
