Comment on Reinvent Yourself Every 15 Years by Financial Samurai.
It’s funny you mention 15 years…. I lasted 13 years in finance and couldn’t take it any more. Blogging starting pulling hard on my soul, so I got out w/ a severance package. I originally planned to work until 40 (18 years).
Now, I’m 7 years into blogging, and I want to last for 10 years to see what happens. 10 years is good enough IMO!

Confidence Can Be Learned
I think practice/learning really is the important key here. Because the more you know, the more confident you will be.
I hope I’ll be able to instill a lot of confidence in my son, but not to the point of being an arrogant boy.
I’m confident now because I really don’t give a crap about what people say about me. They get easier the older you get. When you jump off the deep end by leaving corporate America and then still survive five years later, you gain a lot of confidence that anything is possible.
But I have to say, a lot of confidence is innate. I’ve always liked to stand up for myself and go to war against my detractors, enemies, people who annoy me. I got in fights in school as well. I figure worst-case, I’ll just get punched in the face, and that doesn’t hurt for very long!
