That’s the decision we all make whether it’s intentional or not. Freedom in the future or discretionary spending today.

Creating a Better Life By Spending Less Not Earning More
Thanks for stopping by and commenting, ZJ.
It has taken me 20 years to get to that point where I only take on the business that I choose. In additon to getting to a financial place where I can be selective, I’ve spent a large portion of that time figuring out what it is I want to do and what type of client I want to work with.
I wish you the best in your journey.

Confidence Can Be Learned
Thanks for stopping by and commenting, Sam. I always love your perspective and your words tend to get me thinking.
I haven’t been away from the corporate world quite as long, but after over two years away, I am starting to gain confidence in this new lifestyle.

Avoid the Home Warranty Repair Scam
My only other appliance repair was actually a dishwasher that I tried to repair myself. Unfortunately, after ordering and installing the wrong part, I did finally get the correct part installed. But the new part didn’t fix the problem.
I’ve been working around the issue but at some point, I’ll probably need to bring in someone to actually repair it.
And I still don’t think it will cost $500 to repair.
As difficult as I find it to describe what I’m doing, it’s better than the alternative.
Learn To Profit By Taking Risk
When I posted this, I did think about you ATL. I know you’ve been actively trading options for a while.
It’s a topic that I find intriguing. I’m going to tune it to Tom and Tastytrade a little more.
Thanks for the feedback.
Why Do I Blog and Pour Myself Out There Every Day?
The other benefit of writing often is how much content you create. And just because a post was initially short and written without much in-depth analysis, doesn’t mean you can’t go back, take the idea, and expand into something more extensive.
I used to have a bunch of those short posts sitting in my drafts folder. Now, I’ll go ahead and just publish them.
