My wife, Kim, and I have been in the home-based business industry for 18 years (actually, combined 38 years as she got started 2 years before me).
Many of those years were incredibly profitable; with up to six and seven figure incomes. We were living the “lifestyle” in our early thirties; we had four beautiful little girls, a big house in San Diego, luxury vehicles and we traveled like rock stars.
It was awesome for us…but unfortunately not for our bank accounts. The more money we made, the more we spent. Kim and I were living WAY above our means, and we quickly learned that success doesn’t always last forever.
As the result of some bad business decisions, our income was disappearing like quicksand. This eventually led to what we remember as “The Crash of 2003”. That, of course, was the year we went broke.
