I am a very rich business owner

I am so f*cking rich.


I am writing this by candle light and then I am off to have a hot bath.

Like I said. So f**king rich!

My dad is visiting this week. He had traveled from Yorkshire to Carmarthen, he had enough fuel to get all the way here. He will have enough to go back too.

Extravagant, right?

He is staying a 3* hotel 5 minutes away.

I’m showing off now, sorry.

To be honest, the fact that we are we both healthy enough to see each other and there are no laws saying we can’t, makes me feel seriously f**king rich.

Right now, 1 in 6 people are living in ‘absolute poverty’ in the UK. I got this stat from the government website though, so we all know it will be BS. It will be more.

In our modern world, with the pressures all around us to overconsume, it can be hard to keep perspective.

For business owners bombarded with messages about 6-7 figures all the time reality becomes even more distorted.

Don’t get me wrong, I know all too well what it is life to lie awake at night worrying about paying the bills. I know how consuming that feels.

But I also know how easy it is to forget how much we have right in front of us.

20 years ago I read a stat that said, if you have a wardrobe and a fridge, you are richer than 70% of the world (I can’t find this stat now so not promising it is accurate, it just stuck with me)!

Sometimes this awareness makes me feel guilty.

But right now I am allowing the feeling of abundance.

I am accepting, receiving and grateful.

I am so f**king rich!

The best part of feeling this way to me is that it reminds me of my privilege. And with privilege comes responsibility.

I won’t stick my head in the sand about those people that don’t have what I have right now, I can’t solve the problems of the world but I can do my bit with the money and time I have.

That is why Mission Led Content is not just about marketing. I aspire to take the principles into daily life; love, compassion, service, courage.

I don’t always get it right and I always know I can do more.

But I keep working on it. Doing my best because that is all I can do.

It is all any of us can do.

How rich are you today?
