    I read MFL several years ago and made a decent attempt at trying to start up a consulting business on the side. One thing I learned in that business is that it wasn't very smart to start a customer-heavy consulting business while also working 60 hours a week during the business day. I then made the next step up in my corporate career into senior leadership and spent 2-3 years learning how to do that job properly. During this time frame I felt obligated to focus on that and put side hustles out of mind for a bit. Now here I am making another attempt at a side hustle that can eventually become a life style (thanks to reading Unscripted recently).

    After reading the Import/Export posts by @Vigilante I decided this is something that will allow much more freedom while maintaining the day job. So after spending a few days going through the AMAZING content in that thread (seriously, I walked away with 20+ pages of notes!), I am now hunting for the first product to run with. I'm generally the type of person who will just sit back and absorb content, but I wanted to make this journey public to help keep pushing forward.

    I have always had an entrepreneurial itch, but I have had a hard time pursuing that while providing for my family. This may not be the business I end up in, but I am determined to make this work as proof to myself that this lifestyle is possible. My goal is to update this thread each weekend with the progress I made the previous week and goals for the next week. The important thing is to keep making progress. That has to be REAL progress and not the faking that is so easy for me to fall into.
