Seems my commitment to this process was waning.
Either that or I’m human. It’s no secret the economy has been brutal the past couple of years, and since 90% of my financial life was/is tied to the real estate market, it’s probably no secret that I’ve been brutalized by the economy. But rather than do nothing, I went out and got licensed as a contractor and recently took on a partner who invested in the business. It’s growing, we can feed ourselves, and we’re building trust and contacts.
