A lot of people ask me what my favorite part about being an entrepreneur is.
Income and influence are both wonderful, but my favorite part is the freedom.
You see, since I started running my own businesses, I've been able to travel whenever I want and live wherever I want.
And the rarity and value of that is not lost on me.
The photo above was taken while I visited Lake Como up in Northern Italy.
I actually do my best work while on "vacation." There is something about the change of scenery and people that always inspires me.
I love having the freedom to make the world my office.
Europe is personally one of my favorite places to visit.
The photo above was taken on an evening stroll through streets of Florence, Italy.
I spent about 2 weeks there with my husband,
working out of an apartment we rented by day and then stuffing ourselves with pasta and gelato by night.
With today's technology and the proper business strategy, there is really no reason more of us can't work like this as well.
That is why I am so passionate about teaching other women how to become successful entrepreneurs.
I have been able to create the kind of life for myself
that I thought only existed in my dreams, and I want to help more women do the same.
But I have to admit, Paris is hands-down my favorite place to work remotely from.
Between the street side cafes and the gorgeous gardens, there is no place in the world I'd rather work.
Give me my laptop, some fresh pastries and a cafe and I am in bliss.
As an entrepreneur, your work can become play.
I truly love working while away.
It allows me to travel for longer without feeling unproductive,
and I get such joy from developing both personal and professional growth simultaneously.
But it's not only the ability to work from anywhere that is so special, it's the opportunity to live my life fully.
To see and do things that a regular desk job would never allow me to do.
Although I work on many projects while traveling, I also make sure to take advantage of unique and special opportunities in each place.
I love to cook. So one summer while I was living in Paris, I enrolled in classes at the famous Le Cordon Bleu and learning from some of the world's best chef's!
It was the experience of the lifetime!
What would you love to do if you had more freedom and time?
What skills would you develop or learn?
While working from Florence, I made sure to spend plenty of time enjoying all of the fashion the city had to offer.
The picture above was taken at the Ferragamo Shoe Museum.
The museum showcased several floors of the most famous shoes worn by every celebrity from Marilyn Monroe to Jackie O!
It was such a fabulous and fun experience.
What would you love to see or do if you had the finances and freedom?
Starting April 1st, I am going to be traveling and working remotely for almost 2 months straight!
I'm going to be heading back to Southern California to check in at my offices headquarters,
but also getting in some great trips to Napa, Palm Springs, Malibu and more.
Then I'm hoping across the pond and for a speaking engagement in Sweden, and spending some time shopping in London.
Would you like me to share photos with you along the way?
Please comment below if you would like to join me on my journey and hear some of my best tips and practices for working remotely.
I'll be personally reviewing all comments.
