Laurie Greiner schooled an entrepreneur on Shark Tank with a business lesson that shot through the screen and knocked my remote control out of my hand.

He said, “I’m in the lifestyle business.”

She said, “I’M OUT! There’s no such thing as a lifestyle business.”

He looked confused, but I got it. Then again, I wasn’t in the hot seat with my entire QVC future on the line.

If Laurie were to ask me, I would tell her I run a Lifestyle Driven Business. The goal for myself, and those I consult, whether business or career, is to operate in a way that supports a chosen lifestyle in every way. No compromise.

Yes, it’s business first, but your mission should be to earn a living that lets you enjoy life today instead of waiting until retirement.
