How to Grow Your Business Without Sacrificing Your Freedom

You can’t build anything interesting without some level of sacrifice, but if you’re an entrepreneur that is years into the hustle and you still can’t seem to get freedom from your business regularly, there’s a problem. Dale Majors, founder of VentureAnyway.com, joins me today to talk about something that so many of us struggle with: our businesses becoming all-consuming while our personal and family lives slowly disappear.

Listen in as Dale shares how to scale your business without becoming a slave to it, what he wishes he would have done before selling his first business,  and how he took what he learned through his own entrepreneurial journey and now uses it to help other business owners build amazing lives. We also talk about the importance of building habits versus chasing goals and what Dale did to bring more control—and happiness—into his life.
