    I had a slick sales job for a Fortune500 company. I worked from home approximately 30 hours per week and was making more than enough money to do whatever I wanted and take care of my family. I had time and money. I left that job because my boss was a putz. I joined a startup but left after two months after they mislead me on the compensation plan. I couldn't work for people that I didn't trust. I spent three months a bootstrapped startup but eventually I realized I couldn't be a part of that project long-term.

    In the beginning of 2018, I spent 3.5 months networking and looking for a business that I could put some money into to become a partner. Either I didn't hustle hard enough to find the right opportunity or the timing wasn't right. Oh yeah, during this period, I had another child.

    I decided to take another job. Except this time, I have work in an office and have lost all of the liberty that I cherished. And my learning curve is steep.

    I still want to buy a business or create a side-hustle. I'm not focused and I honestly wonder if I have what it takes to actually be successful. I mean really successful. I've never had to work that hard and I always knew I could find another job or do something else. At 35 years old with two kids, my ability to take risk is diminishing but I know that I can't live my life without trying to actually push myself outside of my comfort zone. I'm rambling... Just having a lousy day.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Well if you can sell, that's the #1 asset to have.

    But yes, focus is near the top as well.

    Sorry to hear it, comfort is not a place to find motivation, focus, or urgency. It does the opposite. It advocates status quo.

    Welcome aboard Daniel-san!

    Sales is one of those "fastlane" slow lanes. If you get in the right organization you can absolutely make bank. You don't really need $100m for freedom. Calculate your monthly expenditures, multiply by 2 and back into the math you would need to get there.

    Make that much in sales as quickly as you can, and buy real estate for rental income to meet your monthly target.

    Easy, right?

    :p
