Double shifts, all day shifts
Bags under your eyes
Little social life
Few of your friends “get” your hustle
Sacrifices left and right
BUT I’m in it to create a LEGACY, and I wouldn’t change anything because now I have…
Financial stability to support my family and the freedom for my wife to stay home
Financial security to travel and exposing my kids to experiences
Freedom to make my own schedule to never miss my kids sporting or school activities
The luxury of walking my kids to school each morning because I WANT that time holding their hand while they’ll still let me.
And getting to do it again on the way home from school
Getting off early on a Friday to surprise the kids and go get donuts… or to fly to San Diego and let them play at the beach… or BOTH
The flexibility to take a break from work at any moment just because I want to hold my infant daughter and hear her innocent laugh
The happiness in walking upstairs from my home office just to give my wife a hug
Who cares what other people think? Do what you want to do in life.
