Mac Lewis is not your typical new business owner. He’s chief executive officer and co-founder of FieldSolutions.Working with a network of more than 27,000 independent contractors, the company provides field service technicians to large technology companies throughout North America.
The thing is, Mac started the company when he was 60 years old. He had worked for large tech companies his entire career. But then, around the age when most people are only thinking about retiring, Mac decided, as he puts it, that he “liked being in business better than being on boards.”
If you are still alive today, your purpose is not yet complete. That may not mean that it’s time to start a new business, but it does mean that no matter your age, there are still things that you want to accomplish. You have a special purpose—and because you’re still alive you haven’t totally fulfilled that purpose yet. You have the ability and the resources to help many with little effort. You can also inspire your heirs and do immeasurable good in the world.
Maybe you have avoided a conversation about what matters to you because you don’t think it’s relevant to a planning discussion. But there is another way—a better way. It begins with understanding what matters to you and what you really want to do. This is accomplished in a discovery session with someone trained to ask the right questions to help you draw out the answers—all resulting in a set of clear and measurable objectives that resonate with your heart’s desires.
