    Yes. UNSCRIPTED is about making a declaration of independence -- kinda what just happened in this thread!

    This is enough motivation for me. If this doesn't make you want get out of bed and work your ass off, I don't know what will. The material things are a nice bonus. The real prize is the the FREEDOM. Thank you @RHL for the motivation!

    I used to get so many beeps on my phone, my co-worker asked "What are you, a drug dealer?"


    Something like that...

    Brutal.

    Focus on a product for sale or rent rather than a service you provide unless you can hire people to do it from day one. Don't make the mistake I did; if you're heavily entangled in the creation and implementation of your productocracy, freedom is slower, and harder, because every little bit you draw back lowers your income and puts freedom farther away. It's super tempting to want a magnitude play because it's faster to start and it might even give you a sort of celebrity feeling (flying out to give lectures, staying in hotels all the time). All that glitters is not gold. Let your packages get on a plane to Ohio or Kentucky while you get on a plane to the Maldives.

    With your family.

    And without your phone.

    I love how questions regarding "parenting and entrepreneurship" go on this forum.

    New members focus on the 'entrepreneur' part.
    As in, "how can I be my own boss properly if I'm a parent?"

    Then the older members jump in and focus on the 'parenting' part.
    As in "how can you parent properly if you're always at someone else's workplace?"

    Love it :)

    This should be required reading for anyone newly married and/or expecting.

    Keep telling everyone you are working your brains out "for your family..."

    Thank you, RHL, for saying this:

    It just makes better business-sense if fast lane is priority.

    ...my take away: choose good business over satisfying ego.

    I like what you're saying here. How & when did you notice the need to switch? And how did you do it? You stayed in the same business but switched to a product? It seems insight that lots of us would easily ignore.. as a service seems to have the lower barrier to entry.

    Thanks for your amazing story! It makes me, as a soon to be dad - both sad and motivated. Sad because Im nowhere near your level, but motivated because there is this "other way" to parenting. :)

    Inspirational story and congratulations. I wish I had read TMF pre kids and started the mind set change. I don't know you or your story but as a father of two it's a a great motivational push. If only there were more hours in the day!

    Enjoy every moment with the little one. Great story

    Mr. Money Mustache is good for this, too. I know we give the ultra frugalists a hard time for eating roadkill and using toxic exhaust gasses from their furnace to dry their clothes, but real talk, the extreme early retirement people still aren't at work. They're still at home with their families. They're still free of the 9-5. They still figured out what matters. They're on the right track. They guy driving a Maserati who has to work 70 hours a week because of his $4,000/mo car payment, he's not on the right track.

    OT: My cleaning lady drives a current model Mercedes. I haven't yet determined if she is really smart or really stupid. It's possible she's loaded, and it's possible she's a maid with a Mercedes payment.

    I told this story after-hours at the summit a few years ago, but for my second graduate degree, the university didn't guarantee housing, so rather than paying $4000/mo to rent in Princeton, I went to Pennsylvania. At the cheap-as-hell apsrtment I rented, a lot of my neighbors had leased brand new M3s, C63 AMGs, and GT500s. I wonder what their dates thought when they came back to "da crib" and found out it was a $650/mo studio apartment where the marshall service served 3 warrants a weekend in full body armor.

    Had an absolutely horrible night last night. If you've never had kids, you should know that their development happens in waves, and when it happens the babies tend to regress, so as they develop new abilities, they start crying more, sleeping less, generally acting like they did when they were newborns.

    Woke up so many times last night that I snoozed all 3 alarms this morning and missed my 5AM alarm for the gym. Woke up in a fog hours late. Day ruined, right?

    I woke up to an email saying I sold $390 in product while I was asleep last night.

    Now I'm going to the gym from 10AM-12PM. Because I can.

    Love it.

    Parenthood, especially the first three months, can be brutal. Hang in there.

    I'm not going to lie, each of your stories are really appreciated on this forum - heck, this forum is deeply appreciated. I have read your story so many times, and the super cool responses, you all are inspiring each of us. I'm still in the beginning of my lane and getting my foundation going; however, I am motivated every-living-day that I come here. I read about the challenges, the failures, the lessons learnt, the tweaking from the failure to the lesson, I read about the positives you each add to people's lives, I read about the success, I read about the ability to be free, to do things, I read about contributing to communities and pledging to things you are passionate about, because you can. I am proud of where we all are, regardless of the point of journey we are, whether we are starting, midway, or onto another because of the previous success we've already experienced - we are all winning and this is phenomenal!

    Congratulations, you are an inspiration, I wish you continued success and freedom to do great things with your family and thank you for taking the time to share your remarkable transformation.
