A Way Out!
When I was young, I wanted to be a lawyer. To be honest, I never thought I was smart enough. However, after attending college, getting good grades and a high score on the Law School Entrance Exam, I was admitted to the University of Utah College of Law.
Nearly 25 years later, as a solo practitioner, I realize that I was able to buy myself a high paying job, with no way out. I needed a way out, and I wanted to spend time with my wife and family. Being able to spend time with them was something that had been non-existent for many years.
I wanted to be able to get up with my wife and spend a little time with her in the morning talking and planning the day. My desire was to share a vacation with her that lasted more than three or four days, without having to remain in touch with the office the entire time I was gone. We have always wanted to travel and spend a little time in each place to review the history and relax. If I had money, I had no time. If I took too much time, I would lose money. I wanted time and money.
While listening to YouTube videos, I came across a woman who had spent over 20 years as an investment banker. She had discovered a way out and she was willing to share with me what she discovered. I was looking for a way to solve my problem and she had some answers. She showed me how to use the internet to give value to others. In the process, it allowed me to earn a second income. She was able to leave her career as the income replaced her earnings. That was my goal.
I have had to learn some new skills. As the poet Robert Frost has stated:
