Lifestyle Builders: The Book
Your life. Your business. Your way.
Most people have two lives: the one that they are living and the one that they want to live. Today, there is more opportunity than ever for anyone to create their ideal life through entrepreneurship. After overcoming the obstacles of building three businesses with one spouse still in a 9-5 job and working together as a married couple while raising two young kids, Tom and Ariana Sylvester have cracked the code and developed a framework on how to successfully do business and life—together. Tom and Ariana guide current and aspiring entrepreneurs through the major aspects of making it happen with a simple step-by-step process. Lifestyle Builders™ helps readers:
- Get clear on what their ideal life looks like
- Map out personal and business finances
- Organize and run their business to support their ideal life
- Understand theory through real-life stories
- Implement actionable steps immediately
Even for those who feel like they are too busy or seriously lack time and money, the Sylvesters’ guidance provides the inspiration and clarity to unlock the secrets of making their ideal life a reality and building a successful business.
