Sure is beautiful. It breaks my heart that we can't save them all as well. But with some work, we can save many. In this case, one life does make a difference.

Praying for you guys as you make a trip that will impact a lifetime.
My family was my inspiration. As an airline pilot, I traveled a lot. I was gone all the time. Playing that forward with young kids, I knew I'd be missing things. In fact, I missed the first steps of our two oldest. I missed all sorts of stuff. I enjoyed flying airplanes, but what good is enjoying a job when other things in your life are out of whack? Motivated doesn't even describe how driven I was to provide a better life for my family. I would stop at nothing to make it happen. That's the kind of drive people need to have if they want to succeed.
What a guy! I never get old of hearing stories like these, Kevin. I can see where you get it.
Thanks again for sharing this Kevin. It's truly inspirational to me, and it sounds like it's already helped quite a few other folks too.
#1 reminds me of the 10,000 hour rule that Malcolm Gladwell talks about in Outliers. You get good by doing, and you get really good by doing a lot. Most people quit by that point.

Thanks for letting us know Brian. So great to have you as a listener!
Thanks Marta. The pain does need to be there in order to maintain the motivation!
Well meaning Christians are like any well meaning person unfortunately. They mean well but don't always have sound advice. Glad to help push you closer to the edge John.

"Is your pain or desire big enough to become self-employed?" Our society has duped us into believing that the responsible, ethical and moral life is one of security, safety, and comfort. That working all week at meaningless jobs is responsible, as long as we have a nice house, late model cars, family has all the modern day necessities, and we can talk with our neighbor on our back porch on the weekends, about the adrenaline rush of our new grill."

What's holding you up on this John. Is it the limited buy-in from other businesses?
Thanks for the comments Lance. We should do a show on spousal support. It's a biggie in the world of self-employment. I've had a lot of fun working with Brandt on his college football ideas. He's a member of the Free Agent Academy (http://faatrial.com) and he's been getting a lot of great insight from members and professors alike.
Thanks Aaron, I'm excited to hear that you're loving it! I agree, you probably won't be very successful at self-employment unless there's a reason behind it.

I love it Kevin - I did three things on this list already without seeing it. We're headed to the pool later this afternoon, which will use the fill-in-the-blank option. I hiked 10 miles on Friday and came up with 6 new ideas for my business.
Definitely check it out Nina. Brett's doing some great things. http://bretttraudt.wordpress.com
