Fate and destiny. What are they and why are they important to your journey as an independent professional? Well frankly, for this article, it doesn’t matter. We take fate and destiny to mean the same thing, even though they are not . What is the most important is the end point you are striving towards. Since most of our readers tend to be independent professionals, we will assume that your end points are to have an incredibly successful independent business that frees you up to live life on your own terms. 

If you haven’t read The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, it is a story with the main theme of openly pursuing our goals or making them known to the public. The world will do everything it can to conspire to help you achieve those goals. 

While this cosmic perspective may seem far-fetched to some, we are big believers in focus. By making your goals known to your friends and family, it creates both a carrot and a stick.  The stick can be the social pressure you’ve imposed on yourself to prevent embarrassment or preserve pride by reaching your publicized goals. The carrot can be the people who help you reach your goals because they’re aware of them and want you to succeed.

Entrepreneurial in spirit ourselves, we realize there are often naysayers who will discourage you, or unintentional saboteurs who are quick to point out the obstacles you face achieving your goals.  That needs the intention of a separate, dedicated blog post!  The important thing is to stay focused on your goals — on OUR goals.  We believe our focus has manifested itself in the simple, elegant design of Ourglass.  We hope this can help many people out there reach their income and independence goals!
