Sigmunds post in Trev's thread inspired me to start this. "However, surfing can also create opportunities. If you have ever sat in a cubicle watching the surf going off on the cam at your beach, then you know the true definition of torture. This is what motivated me to start my own business that allowed me the flexibility to surf when I wanted. Now *I'm* the guy in the cam surfing the wave you're watching. Thank you surfing!" So now this leads me to ponder whether anyone else has become their own boss or runs their own business. What field are you in? How and when did you do it? What were the hurdles you faced? I continue to jot down great ideas for products, companies, etc., but it's so easy to lose sight, get distracted and then forget about it. The whole vlogging thing seemed cool, but now everyone is doing it. Still searching for my niche and what could be a big breakthrough. My goal is to achieve complete financial security and have all the flexibility I need, while staying motivated. I'm sure we would all love that.
