Ideas in the Wild: How Debbie King is Helping Business Owners Rethink Their Relationship with Their Business

For most business owners, there was a time they loved their business.

Some still do, but for many, the business feels like a trap. No matter what they try, their business can’t run without them and it doesn’t scale. It can be frustrating. Overwhelming. Exhausting.

Ideas in the Wild: How Doug Foley Created a Blueprint from the Lessons That 150 Entrepreneurs Taught Him

Many of us live in a prison of our own making. We spend our lives dreading Mondays, looking forward to paychecks, and working longer hours, only to shoulder even more responsibility.

It’s a never-ending chase, but life doesn’t have to be that way. It’s time to stop going through the motions and start living. It’s time to build a business that offers you freedom.
