Ep 95: Dealing With Burnout and Where I’m Going From Here

Well, some things have been going on personally, in America, and with my business, and I have definitely hit a stage of burnout because of this. Just because I live a simpler life than most doesn't mean I'm immune to what everyone else experiences. I'm a type A, and a critical/analytical thinker, so I can go down some dark roads at times as well. I always try to stay positive, but some recent events have made me take a deep look at how I want to spend my remaining years on this planet. In this episode, I delve into my thought process and inform everyone on where The Simple Life brand and I are going. Topics Discussed: * I explain how I have arrived at this “burnout stage in life.” * I haven’t lost hope, but I think we are going to experience a rough ride in the future * Why I feel I’m no longer chasing dreams, but chasing time * Dealing with chronic pain for 25 plus years has taken its toll * What will be the direction of The Simple Life brand from here on out * Why I will consider myself somewhat retired as an entrepreneur * How I think we have reached critical mass with our health in America * How and why we are destroying the last place of true freedom * And the usual random thoughts of society, my life, and the future Episode Resources: * Episode 67 The Three-Legged Stool of The Simple Life https://www.thesimplelifenow.com/e67/ * Episode 72 The Five Principles of The Simple Life https://www.thesimplelifenow.com/e72/ * The Simple Life Website: https://www.thesimplelifenow.com *Make sure to signup and be a member of The Simple Life Insider's Circle at: https://www.thesimplelifenow.com/the-simple-life/
