The subtitle of this blog is mybrandofgenius. I started this blog as a writer who wanted to meet like-minded people. I wanted to know where they came from and what they were doing.
My goal was to connect with people who had tried what I was trying to do as an author and to meet readers to find out what they most enjoyed about reading. I needed education and mentors. I have learned much from you. I am grateful.
You all, my followers, have been with me thru thick and thin. I hope you’ll stay with me as I embark on another pathway. I am not abandoning writing. I love it. I feel passionate about writing and my abilities.
I am putting my creative writing on hold while I develop other areas of my life that need attention.
The rocket scientist, Greg, and I are coming to a time in our lives wherein we have reached financial success, but not financial freedom. We are learning that we have been guilty of some stinking thinking.
We are guilty of living a life where we thought to go to school, earn a degree, get a job, work every day, save our money, make “investments”, and retire on our 401k, savings, pension, and SS/disability was the way to success. It was. But it’s not the way to financial freedom.
Do you know the difference?
Financial success means you have worked hard for your money and now you can spend the rest of your life trying not to go broke while you enjoy it.
Financial freedom means your money works hard for you, so you have time to enjoy it.
We have been living under the delusion that you have to have a lot of money to make a lot of money when nothing could be farther from the truth.
Our thinking about money had to change. We learned that the best investment we could make, no matter how small, was in our education about money and business, but in a way that paid us to do it.
This blog is about to change. We want to share our journey here. Over the next weeks, months, and years, we will be sharing what we are doing to reach financial freedom and how it is working for us. We hope you will stay with us because we believe it may be one of the most valuable journeys you ever embark on.
If you choose to unsubscribe to this blog because it isn’t consistent with your goals, we will understand.
But I urge you to stick around.
As I have said on my ABOUT page, I have met a myriad of geniuses in the blogosphere.
