Most business owners are aware that there is a difference between owning a business and owning a job. And most of us don’t just want a place to work – we want a successful enterprise that can continue to make money without our constant involvement. The challenge, of course, is finding the time to work on our business instead of getting so caught up with working in it.
But is a lack of time really the problem?
Let me tell you about Jon Morrow. Jon is the owner of Boost Blog Traffic – a business that helps people create popular blogs. The business is successful enough to support Jon comfortably but, more importantly, it is a money making asset. Jon has built a business that can run itself. In fact, he has written candidly about how he works when he feels like it since he doesn’t have to work for a living.
By any reasonable standard, Jon is a successful business owner. But this is what makes his story particularly remarkable: Jon has Spinal Muscular Atrophy. It is a rare disease that has left Jon incapable of moving any part of his body except his face. Yet Jon has complete peace of mind since the business he has built can provide him with the best medical care in the world and take care of his family.
If a guy who literally can’t move a muscle can build a successful business that runs itself, what’s your excuse?
