761 Denise Gosnell: Grow by Subtraction
How to Achieve More by Doing Less
You know how when you get ready to go on vacation, you often get a month’s work done in the couple of days before you leave?
It’s a state of peak productivity because the time crunch is forcing you to focus on what really matters and either eliminate or delegate the rest.
Most entrepreneurs can feel as though they’re running faster and faster towards a destination that seems just as far away as it always was, bought into the ‘hustle and grind’ theory we get more of everything we want when we work harder.
What if the opposite were true? What if ‘having it all’ doesn’t mean ‘doing it all’? Imagine a life where you have ample time for all the people in your life, all the things you like to do – other than building your business? What if you grew your business faster by only working three days a week?
Today we talk about the “vacation effect” and how to grow your business by subtraction with Denise Gosnell, an inspiring 7-figure entrepreneur who runs 3 companies in 3 different industries and works an average of just 3 days per week.
Denise is a business strategist, attorney, real estate investor, and creator of The Vacation Effect®, a coaching and training company that helps busy entrepreneurs create a freedom lifestyle without sacrificing business growth. Denise has a new must-read book out this week called The Vacation Effect for Entrepreneurs: Grow Your Business Even Faster by Working Less and Having More Fun.
A classic over achiever who once worked as much as 80 hours a week, whether earning her bachelor’s degree with summa cum laude honors and Doctor of Jurisprudence while working a full-time job or burning the midnight oil as a software developer and then forming her own law firm, Denise shares how watching her house burn to the ground was the moment she realized what really mattered. She set about changing her life and making it her mission to help herself and others create a business and life they love without sacrificing their income.
