Life Work_sm.jpgQ: I think I've made a terrible mistake. I'm in my mid 50s and my adult son just came to me and told me he feels like he's lost his father. We used to go fishing and hunting all the time, but then work picked up and I really did give up everything else to focus on that. His words cut me pretty deep, but I know he's right. So how does a workaholic like me slow down enough to live life, but still work hard enough to make enough to live on and save?

broccoli and cabbage_sm.jpgQ: By my estimate I’ll have nearly $1,500,000 saved by the time I retire in twelve years. Is that enough to retire on?

A: Do you own a business or simply own your job?

There is a big difference between being self-employed (a.k.a., owning your job) and owning a business that has value apart from your direct involvement. One is not superior to the other, but they are very different creatures.
