  • And now, it’s just love for myself.
  • Be honest but respectful about your opinion and feelings.
  • Do things you enjoy and believe in.
  • Take time for yourself to do the things you want (i.e., GYM, Meditate, Coffee, Run) even if you’re going to do it during working hours.
  1. I wish someone had told me this lifestyle had no way back. Committing years to this lifestyle would mean you would have no way back to corporate. This means that if you needed to go back for some reason, maybe cash flow after a failed venture, it would be complicated to go back, which in a way, is a blessing.
  2. I wish someone had told me I would lose all my savings and wealth, meaning I would be cash flow poor. Before doing this, I was in such significant financial positions. I had saved a lot of money in my corporate job.
