Living the dream and chasing the dream are sometimes one and the same. As I write this, I remember a time when I was working day and night to fix a business that had turned left when I was going right - a short four years after a very public early retirement from my retail job to go full time online.
The loss of both of my parents in the coming years was difficult and I never fully recovered from that blow. My show continued broadcasting dead air during that time and I was hesitant to get back on the saddle. My thoughts seemed scrambled. I couldn't say complete sentences without forgetting what I was saying. I was scared.
Luckily for me and my bride, my parents had been prepared for my future, at a time when I was not.
So now, I am in charge of their estate, and am actually able to live the life I had been working so hard (unsuccessfully) to accomplish before their passing. But, being the entrepreneur, I would not allow myself to enjoy it, because I didn't feel like I had earned it.
This is going to be a journey into a realm that I have never been to before. I will explain what I am doing and how to avoid some of the things that I went through. I can't give you financial or legal advice, but I can sure relate to situations that many of my listeners are going through and hopefully you get some nugget that can help you
