Why not both?

I have been doing a lot of thinking about what being a badass means for 2017.  Talking with Chris the last time he asked me to come up with what it means in 2017 to be a badass in my business.  I have two trains of thought.

One is that I want to build a team. I loved getting to work with Lauren even for the small amount of time that we had together.  I am incredibly excited to think about getting to find like minded individuals who would help me grow.  And I am even more excited by thinking about getting to work with them to help them grow.  Building a team of happy, driven people who help me build a business where I help people get what they want.

The other thought is that I am comfortable.  I am making more money than I need, and I have time.  Time for my family, time for my growth, time for myself.  I love that as well.

What is a better question?  How can I make these two things work together?

Taking a moment to ponder that, the first thought that comes to me is why can’t I have both?  Why can’t I take my time and build the business that I want, just not as quickly as I was first thinking?  Why do I have to be speeding ahead, when I am seeing my business grow now?  From 2015 to 2016 my business grew 18%.  From 2014 to 2015 my business grew almost 700%.  That is because I sucked in 2014 and I had massive growth in 2015.  Am I placing on myself that I fail if I do not have triple digit growth year over year? Why does it need to grow that much as long as I am headed in the trajectory that I want?  I think this is something that I need to think about.
