My name is Jeff. That's me above, Kiteboarding in a tournament in the Philippines in February 2019!
I live around the world since 2003. This was made possible because mostly I've been working from home since 2003. Stick around to see the potential of having your own business fuel some of your dreams too. (Some people do enjoy working for someone else. I do get that. Have you thought about Working Remotely from your home or wherever you are at? I will be expanding into Telecommuting Tips for Success at a later time.)
I do enjoy being indoors working on my computer to build and grow a business.
For as long as I can remember, I've always been an outdoors enthusiast!!
Even when I was like 5 years old, my Mom would have to tell me to get home by 7 or 8pm to get ready for sleep. Where was I, you ask? OUTSIDE playing with my friends at the Bird Refuge in Utah, of course!! I just love being outdoors as much as possible.
Why the heck is all this being mentioned?? It's all about the balance of sitting and moving. YOUR Health is indeed Your True Wealth!! Never compromise on that, ever.
How does one fully enjoy the balance of sitting/standing at the computer???
Easy!! GO OUTDOORS!! If you don't enjoy the outdoors, or think, "Well okay, Jeff, someday, I'll get to exercising after I get my business earning me money. I only have so much time! " I get it. I was that way at times too. So what I did is made sure to get a 30 minute walk/hike in sometime during the morning. And some basic weight lifting...even just light weight will do if you are starting or nervous about "lifting weights" Even just life some rocks outside or some cans from your food storage. You do have some Food Storage, right??
Some of the many things I enjoy outdoors are as follows:
- Kitesurfing (With a Kite & Surf Board)
- Kiteboarding (With a Kite & Kiteboard)
- X-Country Skiing
- Downhill Skiing
- Ice Skating
- Mountain Biking (Dirt & Street)
- Kung Fu
- Outdoors Gym! (If you are very short on time for the day, simply do the FARMERS WALK. This works the whole body in about 3 minutes or less. "The farmer's walk is a whole body exercise that stimulates a number of muscle groups, including the quads, hamstrings, glutes, calves, erectors, upper back, traps, lats, abs, biceps, triceps, forearms, and hand muscles." - Healthline.com
In 1997, I took up Windsurfing! What a rush that was for 6 years! In 2015, I took Kiteboarding Lessons. Since then I've been "hooked!" A year later I taught myself how to surf with a kite!! Oh man!! I love to Kitesurf & Kiteboard as much as possible.
Ah, but I digress, let's Build a Business!
Ever thought about delegating your work and hiring a VA? (Virtual Assistant)
VA's can Create/Edit Listings, Answer Emails (Customer Service), Prepare & Print Orders, Edit Images, Learn how to build a Python Scraper from Udemy to scrape listings and create listings from those, let's see what else have I asked them to do over the past 12 years? Oh, yes provide me daily reports with screenshots of dashboards, PPC data for 2 amazon accounts and sometimes an eBay account. Then I can see at a quick glance if I need to log into those accounts and fix/tweak/answer an email personally from a customer. program full time for me for 3 years...and that my friends just barely scratches the surface of what a VA can do for you too!
