Oh How I Used to Hate My Job

0  comments

Back in the late 1990’s I worked for a big box store called Price Club.

If you’ve never heard of Price Club, I’m not surprised, but you’ve probably know of the store and maybe even shopped at it a time or two because it eventually rebranded itself as Costco.

I had a secure job there with insurance, a 401k, and a lifetime of opportunity to climb the corporate ladder there. The problem was I absolutely hated working there.

A huge part of my disdain for that J.O.B. (in my mind it stands for Just Over Broke) was that I was working for someone else and completely limited by their vision for my success.
 
I knew I was destined for so much more but I was newly married and afraid to leave behind the consistency and security – even though it was limited by their vision for my future.

One of the things I hated most about that job was working on Sundays. Every minute I was there felt like an eternity. I would look at every person who came into the store and imagine what they would be doing for the rest of the day while I was a slave to my job.

In just a couple of days, I’ll be leaving my home in Los Angeles for a 5,400 mile road trip across America with my family. We’ll be visiting some amazing people and places including Utah, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Tennessee, and New Mexico.
 
Sure, I’ll be working on the road, but probate real estate has given me the personal and financial freedom over the past 20 years to do what I want to do, not what my J.O.B. wants me to do.

One of the things I’ll be doing while I’m out on the road with my family is writing a book about probate real estate. But the book will be about more than just that.
 
I’ll be sharing my life story about how my mother was literally homeless when she was pregnant with me (I was born in a convent thanks to the generosity of a group of nuns here in Los Angeles).
 
You’ll discover how I quit Price Club to pursue my dream only to end up in a coma on the first day of my new job which also was the day my wife found out she was pregnant with our first child!

Committed to your success,
