I live in a very wealthy town and most of our friends are in the world of finance, banking and hedge funds. They bring home BIG bonus checks that would make most “gurus” faint. I’m talking millions and millions of dollars.
And none of them can figure out what the hell I actually do for a living :)
But what really confuses them is when they find out I work from a different coffee shop every morning.
That’s right, one morning is Starbucks in Stamford, the next it’s Cosi, on Wednesday it might be the Starbucks in Barnes and Noble or back to Stamford.
For me, the change of environment and buzz of the background noise keeps me from losing my mind.
Since I haven’t had a “job” in over 11 years, I’d lose my mind just sitting in a quiet office by myself all day.
The biggest question I’m asked is “what about all the phone calls?”.
And my answer is simple.. I schedule all my phone calls, coaching sessions, interviews and webinars in the afternoon. It’s on MY schedule and if you want to speak to me, it is going to have to be in the afternoon. And that is either in my “real” office or my home office.
I’m telling you, I get more done from 9am to Noon than most people do in 8 hours. For me, it just works. And I LOVE waking up and heading to a different “office” for the morning.
It seems like my routine is catching on.
Lots of my clients are now telling me since they have been following my system – they have been working from outside the house – and how much more they are getting done.
Even people who have full-time jobs are squeezing more into their day – and having a blast doing it.
So, let’s have some fun and find out where YOU do your “marketing” work? Where are you most productive?
