Labor Day has always been a big holiday for me. As a kid it meant my dad got the day off. This was a big deal because my dad was by far the hardest working person I have ever met.
Because of his hard work, we had a "shore" house (yes, I grew up in New Jersey) that we really only enjoyed on those treasured weekends. So to have that extra day, that rare three-day weekend with my dad was very special. And like so many, we always had a big BBQ with family and friends.
But as a kid I never knew the meaning behind Labor Day. I just knew that my dad was off, summer was coming to an end and that school was right around the corner.
It wasn't until many years later when I was in the typical 9 to 5 workforce that I knew the meaning behind Labor Day.
I learned that it is a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of the country.
And of course, it meant that I now got that valued three-day weekend!
But now so many years later and in anticipation of celebrating my FIVE-year anniversary of owning and running my very own business, my views on Labor Day have drastically changed.
You see, I can have a three or four-day weekend whenever I desire.
As a matter of fact, I cannot remember the last time I worked a "typical" 9 to 5, five-day workweek. Actually, I don't even define what I do as "work".
You see at this point in my life, I have purposeful activities. These are ALL activities that I wake up every morning grateful for the opportunity to partake in them. These are all activities that add value to my life and the lives of my kids and my husband, activities that I am honored and humbled to pursue. Some of these activities directly yield me revenue while others indirectly do.
That is because I live a blended lifestyle through and through.
The Difference Between Blended and Balanced
You see so many strive for a "balanced" lifestyle when in reality what you really want is a blended lifestyle. If you are asking yourself right now - what's the difference? You have to watch my special presentation right now!
I want you to watch this because it saddens me to think that folks like you can work so hard and give so much and be honored only once a year.
So instead of just celebrating Labor Day this year, join me in The Blended Lifestyle Revolution.
Learn how to set your own rules and live life on your terms. Find out how to leave 9 to 5 behind and end up making more money and spending more time with your family!
If you have wanted to live your passion for years now and just don't know how to get started, then do something very special for yourself and your family today and watch this presentation!
Now I am going to share with you right upfront, this presentation is almost 2 hours long. And if you are saying, "Oh, I don't have time to watch a 2 hour presentation." Well I feel sorry for you. If you do not feel changing your life, making more money and spending more time with your family is worth 2 hours, well I cannot help you.
You see any enhancements take effort. You must be willing to make that effort. And quite frankly, watching, listening and learning for two hours is a small outlay for a lifetime of fulfillment.
I hope you take this journey with me so that next year at this time, Labor Day does not represent a day that you were allowed to take off. Rather it is a day that you choose to have your family and friends over to your home for a BBQ. Or it is a day you choose to go to the beach. Or it is a day you choose to do whatever you WANT to do!
You can start on your very own revolution right now!
I sure hope you do.
PS - Here is a picture of hubby and me. We went to one of my favorite restaurants this past Saturday night. We ate lobster and drank champagne. No it was not a special occasion. We just had our weekly date night, just because that is how we choose to live our life.
PSS - Define your own terms; watch this very special presentation now while you are thinking about it.
