As an entrepreneur, what does independence mean to you? In America, we celebrate Independence day on every July 4th. We celebrate the day we got our independence from Britain. This holiday always makes me think about independence on an individual level. First of all how do you even know when you are independent? What does that really mean. I can tell you what it means to me. In my opinion independence means that you are self reliant. It means that no matter what happens you can find a way to get the things in life that you need. If that means you work two part time jobs until you can find a decent full time job you do that. If it means you do various freelance projects while you build a thriving coaching business, you do that. An independent person is not going to just sit down and let circumstances dictate what happens to them. Now being independent does not mean that you do this all alone. You should have a team of people ready to help you if you need it. Never be afraid to ask for help. Independence just means that you do not sit around and wait on someone else to make an opportunity for you. You go and make it yourself.
