Business ownership and travelling the world

Own a business? Yes? Then world is yours.

Are you a business owner dreaming of travelling the world? Do you feel like your business is not delivering on the promise of freedom?

Many business owners start their own businesses in the hopes of having more freedom and flexibility to travel. However, business ownership can become more consuming than anticipated, and travel seems like a forgotten dream.

But, it’s not impossible. There are business owners who have achieved the dream of travelling the world while their businesses continue to grow and succeed. For example, Andrew Laurie from BGB took his family to France for a year to learn French and ski in Europe. Another business owner is travelling through Spain with his partner while his business in Sydney continues to grow.

To make this dream a reality, business owners need to take a systematic and intentional approach. The four things that need to be in place for this to happen are:

  • Controls – Eliminate chaos
  • Cash flow – Reliable and growing profits
  • Systems – The business just works
  • Team – The right people to run the systems for you

Controls refer to having the right set of controls in place, knowing what’s going on, and where you’re going. Cash flow is about creating a reliable sales and marketing machine that delivers consistent growth and cash flow into the future. Systems are important to have in place to make the business reliable and process-driven, and the right team is essential to keep your business running smoothly without you.

To achieve a successful business, you must have reliable cash flow, growth, systems, and the right team. It takes time and effort, but it’s worth it.

In our subsequent posts, we’ll go into more detail about the different elements and steps involved in achieving this goal. We’ve guided many business owners through this process and know what’s required to make it happen.

If you’re a business owner who wants to travel the world while your business thrives, it’s possible. With the right strategy and plan, you can achieve your dream of exploring beautiful places and doing the things you love.
