Many entrepreneurs go into business for one main reason: the search for freedom. But oftentimes, this is never achieved; as businesses grow, entrepreneurs make adjustments in their lives to fit their businesses instead of doing it the other way around. Because of this, they end up neglecting other important parts of their lives, like family, health, and friends.
In such cases, business owners need to find ways to claim their freedom and learn how to adapt their businesses to their lifestyles. And this is where Eelco de Boer comes in. He has many years of experience in starting and scaling businesses and has ample advice to share with fellow entrepreneurs.
