What he said.
All I can say is very well put Robb. My father growing up was a contractor and paid all the insurance for the family out of pocket. We had 0 debt other than the mortgage.
Moving forward to now. My wife has been working any extra overtime she can. I’ve been working on trying to find a way to have a second job that I can work from home. We both have debt but we’re working on a snowball to clear it.
We spend most of our free time trying to figure out how we can earn more money. Both by means of fire and forget, and good old fashioned labor. We have a few ideas, it’s a matter of solving the implementation now. Many of our ideas are outside our immediate area of expertise and we’re having to self educate.
The idea that you can quit your job to go protest the people working their asses off just boggles the mind.
