    The Trek. Hey guys! Sorry for the long delay - I just got back from a much needed trip to Austin, TX. There was a lot of self-reflection involved... long story short, I'm not happy with my current state of things. But where I am is where I need to be. And where I need to be is how I'm gonna...

    Easy mindset to understand... a tough mindset to practice.. :smuggy: I'm doing my best though! When you do get through Unscripted, let me know - I'll be curious to know what you think and what the main takeaways for you. I have 3 start ups going on that do meet the CENTS requirements, I'll write...

    All I got from the OP was.... Did I understand the main point of your post? Okay, good. Now that we've established that - let me mansplain things to you for a minute here... YOU WILL NOT GET A TROPHY JUST FOR VISITING THIS FORUM. I am so sorry the forum did not celebrate your arrival with...

    Hugh, I applaud you for all the great things you're pursuing - and in all honesty... can I just say mannnnnnn, you are overflowing with ideas.. I wish I had half the brain processing power you've got. Now having said that, I have a confession to make. You lost me at around your 4th website...

    My FTE is here! ...Do I take the money and run?

    FTE 
    I feel like this is one of those posts where you know the answer but you're looking for validation. No one can recommend that you quit your job. Only you can weigh those variables carefully and decide. You must ultimately be the person you blame for all of your actions. You also happen to be...

    You, my friend, have jumped down the rabbit hole too. ;) I love everything about your comment. Because it's so honest. @SinisterLex has a great post on the tactics used by gurus to draw you into paying for their services... Corporations are no exception, they usually have millions at their...

    Thank you MJ, means a lot. Hopefully my story brings a little value to the forum. Very eager to see what I can learn from it.

    Thank you! Believe me, this is as rewarding for me as it is for you. I'm loving the questions... I give you a lot of credit for bouncing back. I get it - the Slowlane is a vortex... it feels like a consistent fallback plan and maybe that's the issue. It is viewed as a fallback, a fail-safe...

    Oh man, asking the tough questions eh? I can think of quite a few takeaways that proved to be 'invaluable'... Let me try to answer this in a few different ways if you don't mind. The first most valuable lesson I learned was all about adjusting your perception. When we look at a system or a...

    +1!! So it sounds like the ideal scenario is achieving 2x our monthly expenses.. quit threshold is at approximately 1x.

    Thanks Rob! It's a journey.. and I'm happy to be able to share it on here. I believe it will, it's a matter of time - and the clock is ticking! :)

    :rofl: This forum is going to turn me into an arse really fast. @KingCarbo - I get why you felt like the forum came out guns blazing but let me put this into perspective: These are people running multi-million dollar businesses... how many people do you think come their way saying "hey I...

    The Pivot. From previous post: Of course, as soon as he mentioned retiring at 35... I suspected shenanigans. Despite mild coercion, he kept his 'secret' method tightly under wraps. It really didn't matter whether he told me or not. My ears were perked and I sensed an opportunity to...

    Finding your focus

    MINDSET 
    The response makes sense - I guess my issue is that I spend too much time 'volunteering' my time and not enough 'investing' my time. I think my question was more along the lines of how does one methodically pivot from one role to another. I wish it was easier to make the shift seeing as I've...

    Andy, I saw your comment in @Raoul Duke's post on 'helping others' and decided to follow the cookie crumb trail here - I'm genuinely curious about your approach on this subject because it's very possible I'm going about this all wrong. I'm not quite to that point yet in my progress thread...
