As my good friend, Richard, and I go through the ups and downs of trying to start our own online business, we continue to keep one thing in mind: why we started.
We started because the overall satisfaction from our normal jobs is sub-par. Having to do a lot of grunt work and schmoozing just to progress in our career or to get a 10% raise is just not gratifying. We both have a lot of talent (as does everyone else). Why not channel this talent and energy into something that will give financial freedom and unlimited fulfillment.
