Or at least give you the best chance at it.
Many folks want to pursue self-employment but don’t have their spouse’s support. As much as I motivate folks to defy all obstacles to self-employment, I learned the hard way never to defy your spouse.
My wife Teri and I are on the beach for a week celebrating our 20th anniversary, but took a break from our ‘break’ to do this week’s Free Agent Academy member’s class together. And for the first time, we invited the general public to listen in. > read more
