Ouch. Keep up the dreams and set some goals, you can do it!
In 04, sheesh that's a long time ago! I graduated college, had an AMAZING job, built a beautiful home on my own, was engaged and getting married in the fall of 05, and was conquering the world...
Then the company I worked for went bankrupt, got hit by a jerk and was almost sued for $50,000, found out my contractor had used my money on other properties and the lumber yard tried to put a HUGE lean on my house, AND I GOT PREGNANT with my Fiance, Fiance totaled his car (his fault), and all this went down in less than two months.
We regrouped, had a shotgun wedding, sold his house so we could survive, fought the legal battles and won minus attorneys fees, I worked as a cashier at his family's shop for $7 bucks an hour (couldn't exactly get a new big job preggers), and we made a plan...
Move out to the middle of nowhere, turn a well house into 1 room cabin and crash in it with a newborn baby, only have 1 truck, build a world renowned business for his family and throw parties for over 40,000 people a year. In a recession.
We did it! And we bought a farm!
It's taken us over 8 years of back breaking work, sleep? What is sleep? Debt, yeah, we have a little itty bitty bit, and most everything but the farm paid off. I think that's pretty good considering I'm just 32!
YOU CAN DO ANYTHING. Even if it sounds completely insane! All it takes is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and few years that FLY BY.
You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!! What do you mean what do I mean?
