This morning I watched a video about how scientists now have a device that can keep a heart beating perfectly FOREVER! Wa-What? I read about stuff like this everyday. I'm totally a futurist tech junkie. I actually use my personal Facebook feed to see everything I can about biomed, the singularity, transhumanism, AI, robotics, anti-aging, nanotech, biohacking, and more. Because of this guilty pleasure, I got some really crazy looks from a bunch of fellow business owners in the Dan Sullivan Strategic Coaching group I was in. The first task we had in the group was to write down the age we expected to die. Sound morbid? I liked it! After we wrote the age, we all had to say the age out loud one at a time, for all to hear. 78. 84. 87. 152. That last one got a chuckle from the room and the coach stopped everyone and asked me... “Why 152?” I answered, “Because that's about double what the 'normal' death rate is now.” I went on to back my crazy number by talking about a handful of scientific breakthroughs that already exist now. Some of the smartest people in these fields say that a doubling of our life expectancy will be possible in our lifetime. These same scientists and PHD's have a united goal: Live long enough to live forever. BOOM. Science fiction? Maybe not. I choose to believe it anyways. Pick the delusion that works, as Scott Adams says. So what does this have to do with having a freedom business? Great question. Here goes… Choosing to start your freedom business now is more important than ever. We already know that life expectancy is going up, maybe not to 152 (yet), but people are already living longer. This means that you'll have more time to hate that soul-sucking job you have far longer than age 65. This is one of the reasons that I decided to fight the fear of failure and just go for it 13 years ago. I couldn't imagine another 30-50-75+ more years of trudging through traffic to get to a job I hated so some idiot could dictate what I do and how to act for 8-12 hours a day. I wanted freedom the day I started my entrepreneurial journey and I'll fight to gain more freedom and give more value in order to keep the freedom I already have. Whether 152 is possible or not, I'm preparing my finances to be the first to find out. Building a freedom businesses is part of that preparation! Join me now:
