How To Be Intentionally Homeless

How To Be Intentionally Homeless

Today, I find myself alone at the local coffee shop. Typically, I’d working from my home office, but today is different. Here’s why: We don’t live at our home anymore. Gasp! I’m homeless! Currently there are a lot of changes that my family of 3 are going through. One of the biggest is that we have moved out of our house and are living with our relatives. I know this might sound shocking to some of my readers, so I want to better elaborate on why this is what my current state of affairs looks like.   One Small, Uncomfortable Step At A Time If you’ve been reading this blog for very long, you’ve probably gotten wind of our big-picture plans. We’re moving aboard a sailboat to cruise around the Bahamas for a while. It’s because of this goal that we find ourselves, currently, at a strange place as a family. We no longer live at our own house. Instead, we are living with my wife’s family. It’s not as bad as it sounds, really.

Real Estate is not for the faint of heart – and I don’t think that building an online marketing business is either. Both will test and try you every step of the way to be sure that you are “worthy” of success. Anytime someone starts a new endeavor, it’s almost like there is a hazing period involved before you can really taste success. It’s exceedingly rare for someone to just jump into something new, go straight to the top, without any really challenge of setbacks. That’s just the way it is when you set off to build something real and worthwhile. Maintaining your focus and motivation along the way is key. Without both of those, you’re just spinning your wheels and wasting your time.   Eventually the novelty is going to wear off. Anytime we set off on something new and exciting, we are initially filled with a sense of excitement and wonder. Business is no different. At first we are fired up and filled with energy. Of course, at first, we are also learning a lot of new things about the new direction we have decided to go in, new things that there is no way to learn about otherwise aside from experiencing them first hand.
