What is one of your insecurities?

How could you live like you have nothing to prove and nothing to lose?

*Dr. John Sperling believed that lifelong employment with a single employer would be replaced by lifelong learning and employment with a variety of employers.

There’s nothing wrong with lifelong employment with a single employer. As I type this, I’ve been a public-school teacher in Central Florida for the past 26 years. I’m just now realizing that I need to get out of my comfort zone if I ever want to do what I really love in life with enough money to thrive while doing it. This is why I keep typing.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
