Confused stare from my husband: "What do you know about technology, Susie?"
Nothing! Isn't it great? So off I went and worked like a demon for 4 years and then the dreaded comfortable life thing again! Yuck! It wasn't any better in my 40s. So when my husband transitioned professionally and was shutting down his business I said, "I'll take over the business! Your clients!"
Confused stare from my husband: "What do you know about Government Relations?"
Nothing! Isn't it great? Worked like a demon, learned to fight legislation and regulation, made terrific progress on environmental issues. But then it happened again. Dreaded comfortable life. Not any better in my 50s. So last month while having morning coffee on our patio, I said, "I've decided to self-publish books. I released one yesterday!"
Really confused stare from my husband. "What do you know about self-publishing?"
Nothing! Isn't it great? I know I confuse him, he's had one profession, one career his entire life, but heck, I think people should live life like they have an all park E-ticket pass in their wallet and only a single day to get on all the best rides.
It doesn't even matter if I fail. It's getting kicked that often is the thing that reminds us we're alive!
