Creating an exit strategy was a motivating factor for change in my life. As a self-employed solo practicing attorney, it was not unusual to work well into the evening and weekends to take care of the needs of my clients. It left little time to enjoy my life and my family. I owned a boat and recreational vehicles that I rarely got to use. Taking a vacation was rare and usually consisted of long three or four day weekends.
What I realized was that I was spending all of my time taking care of what was important for other people, and never having the time to take care of what was important to me. After nearly 25 years, I realized that it would never change unless I found a way to change it. Albert Einstein is quoted as saying that “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result,” there are many references long before Einstein that share the same sentiment. The reality is – – change can only occur when change occurs. We have to make it happen.
I wanted an exit strategy. I was so entrenched in my business, I did not know how to move from what I was doing, to something else and still maintain the income to sustain my life and family. I wanted to make my life and my wife my priority.
In my search I discovered an investment banker that left her career after 20 years. She was creating an income that matched and exceeded what she had been earning in her investment banking career. She had an exit strategy and she was willing to share what she had learned. Her time belongs to her. She is able to create income on her time, and is no longer confined to an office 40-60 hours a week. She is able to travel and spend time with those she cares about when she wants. She has both the time and money to spend on her priorities.
The information she provided me has required effort on my part to learn new skills and to change my way of thinking. It certainly is not a scheme to get rich quick, but it is a business that can be learned by anyone willing to learn and apply the principles and information available. It has required a commitment of time and an investment of resources, but the outcome provides both time to spend with my wife and family, as well as money to spend on our priorities. You owe it to yourself to at least look at the free information.
