5. Optimise Your Efficiency (and Your Quality of Life)
Luke: The real money is not in your products and services. It's in your ability to leverage your energy to sell your product. This is how you start to release yourself from the daily grind.
All the stuff has to be in place and then you're ready to start to optimise efficiency. You want to build a smart business engine that does the work for you.
Luke: There are four ways to become efficient.
1. Stop trading time for money.
2. Have an unlimited earning structure.
3. Systemise your business.
4. Join ventures.

That's how you release yourself from the daily grind. Once your business starts to work for you, that is when you start to enjoy life as a business owner. However, this is a process. It's not a magic formula.
