A.J. Lawrence_Welcome to the Festive Season

Welcome to the Festive Season with A.J. Lawrence, The JAR Group

December 21, 2022

Because it’s the festive season, this week’s episode is a little different than normal. We wanted to take the time to say thank you for being part of what has been an incredible (albeit challenging) year for us, and to encourage you to celebrate everything you have achieved as an entrepreneur in 2022!


[00:01:06] As an entrepreneur, we have plenty to celebrate this season. No matter how big or small our wins are, I hope you’re grateful for what you’ve achieved.

[00:01:15] Whether you’re just starting your entrepreneurial journey or you’ve been in business for years, I’m sure you have achieved something you should be proud of. And it is so important to recognize that. I know it’s so difficult for me to do so for myself, so please celebrate your wins.

[00:01:32] And to make this moment even more special, my team has created a list of business-themed cocktails that are perfect for celebrating your entrepreneurial success. You probably haven’t heard of the CASHFLOW Libre or the STARTUP Star Martini, so I won’t spoil it for you by going into too much detail. Though I will probably be drinking a few of them tonight. We will drop a link in the show notes, so make sure you go check out these cocktails and mix up a couple, few, five for yourself. Enjoy them.

[00:02:03] And besides recognizing your own achievements, make sure you’re taking a break from work in the next couple of weeks. It’s so easy for us to get caught up in our businesses, but make sure to take some time for yourself and your loved ones. After all, your business should help you enjoy your life, not steal it.

[00:02:21] It’s important from the very beginning to build a business in a way that allows you to step away every once in a while without things falling away. It takes work and it takes a lot of effort and focus. But you can achieve it by hiring people you trust and outsourcing certain task. We’ve had so many guests talk about the importance of doing this, so listen to our guests. Figure that out. What works for you.

[00:02:44] As your business grows, you’ll need to have more authority and responsibility, so you need to decide where you can let things go and make them even more effective by stepping away. It’s so hard for me to do this, so really spend the effort on the time. You need to set up the systems that allow your team members to work without you.

[00:03:03] What’s more, if your business is taking over your life, then maybe you should think about some change. Because at the end of the day, your business should help you enjoy every aspect of your life, not take the joy out of you. And now is probably a really good time to reflect on not just our businesses, but our lives and where we are and what we’re doing to create that life we want.

[00:03:27] Because the entrepreneurial journey is great fun, but at the end of the day, it’s just a means of going through our lives and getting as much as we can from our efforts to enjoy our life.

[00:03:40] The whole team here at Beyond 8 Figures wishes you a happy holiday. I just wanted to take a moment to appreciate all their work in bringing this podcast to you. You can’t even imagine how much time and effort that goes on behind the scenes for this podcast. Keeping it up to date, getting it out there, and just all the amazing work they do. It’s hella great effort that they put in. So thank you, really. I just wanna appreciate the team.

[00:04:07] As we approach our 100th episode, I cannot believe that! We are so excited to share even more entrepreneurial goodness with you and inspire you on your journey. And to make sure you’re all set for another awesome year ahead, we’re going to do a recap episode next week and show the top learnings from this year and tips to set you up for success for 2023.

[00:04:29] I know it’s right between Christmas and New Year’s, but I wanna make sure that we start 2023 in the right way. So make sure you stay tuned for the episode next week. We’ll keep it short, but really it’ll be filled with lots of goodness. We can’t wait to share it with you. This coming year is gonna be a very exciting one.

[00:04:47] We want to help you grow your business. That’s why in the new year we’ll be launching some new projects and I hope that will help you grow. I hope you stay in touch with us on social media. If you haven’t, follow us already. You have all the links in our show notes. And we also have a newsletter where we share updates about the episodes and cool tools and things. We’re playing around with some chat GPT stuff that I think would be a lot of fun.

[00:05:12] You can also share your feedback with us on social media and by email. And if you really do enjoy listening to Beyond 8 Figures, please consider leaving us a review on Apple Podcast. Helps the show grow and reach more amazing entrepreneurs like you.

[00:05:26] All right, so there it is. I hope you’ve enjoyed this special episode of Beyond 8 Figures, and I thank you once again for supporting us on this amazing journey. We look forward to bringing you more inspiring content in the new year, so stay tuned. And have a great holiday season. Thank you so much. I’ll talk with you soon. Goodbye.
