Trapped In The Square World


by Brent Haydey




Are you and entrepreneur trapped in the square world?

Are your sights always set on Saturday and Sunday?

I saw a humorous post on Facebook that said “Yes its Monday but… I can guarantee you that better days are coming. They are called Saturday and Sunday.” It then reminded me of that classic 80’s Loverboy song “Working for the Weekend”.

The vast majority of our society works some variation of Monday to Friday from 9-5 (and then some). I’m not sure if you hear it from them but far too many are firmly stuck with their negatively focused dialogue using the once I…, then I… framing.

Once the weekend is here, life will be better. Then Monday comes, again!

In other words, 5 of 7 days of the week suck. Nearly 75%.

If you get caught up in this way of living and talking, STOP!!!

You are an entrepreneur. You can create your business and lifestyle exactly as YOU want it to be. Existing, tolerating, sacrificing, and waiting are forms of enduring your business and your life.

Entrepreneurial Freedom comes when you let go of the old square world ways and live fully every day, enjoying working on your business, working IN your business, and being able to treat any day as if it were a Saturday.

Work hard, when it’s right to do so.

Play hard, when you feel you want to.

Succeed and be free to live outside the square world.

Contact me today if you need help designing your business and your life to achieve this freedom!


“Life is meant to be embraced, enjoyed and fully lived, not merely endured!”
