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?
