I would appreciate hearing your responses, whatever they might be. But I will tell you this -- over the course of the last several years I have had many conversations with my wife about this very thing -- especially when we have been close to the financial edge (and yes, there have been several times) -- and my wife has always taken the position that I should go out and get a job -- any job -- regardless of whether I like it or I am passionate about doing it. In her opinion, when you need money, you do whatever you have to do to make money. Funny thing is, I believed this too for more than twenty-five years. And I did just that -- I went out and made a lot of money at the expense of my happiness, at the expense of my relationships with my wife and my children -- and then the angels interceded in my life and slowly but surely, they taught me that there was a better way to go. Consequently, for the last eight years, I have been doing my best to follow their advice, and although it has not been easy, I am still standing, my family relationships are stronger than they have ever been, I have actually completed some creative pursuits that I have never been able to complete before in my life. And perhaps even, God willing, I will soon see some money from these pursuits. In fact, the day after I arranged the family loan, a potential investor in one of my projects materialized and requested a meeting for Thursday of this coming week.
