Work time and family time

I love what I do for a living. I get a thrill when I make a good investment and I feel all warm and fuzzy inside when I help a person to reach true financial freedom.

But the most important things in my life aren’t investments or even my students – they are my wife Michelle and my daughter Sophia.

So how do I make sure that I never let my work (which I love) interfere with my personal life? I have set a strict schedule:

Thursday afternoons and weekends are for my family.

If you send me an email Thursday afternoon or over the weekend, I won’t answer it until I am back in the office. Even though I it means leaving a deal unfinished until the next week, I simply refuse to let my work eat up my time with my family.

Financial freedom is important. But what’s the point of being financially free if you have to sacrifice your family in the meantime?

    Hi Jack
    My names Ron im writing in hopes of a response from you personally. It seems that there are all kinds of so called tax lean professional’s on the net but none that are willing to have at a minimum a conversation with a prospective student. I am someone that’s always had a passion in real estate and im looking for a mentor. A REAL MENTOR I’m willing to do whatever it takes to achieve success I currently own my own business and understand the word commitment. Jack please get back to me @

    God Bless
