Never crossed the line once.

Working remotely for the past three years, and traveling four or five weeks out of six, on average, has made working in a traditional office setting obsolete.

For the past six years, every spare moment has been spent building the infrastructure and platform to be able to launch Mid Life Celebration, LLC as a full time business.

Working anywhere. Anytime.

Overhead is minimal.

Impact is unlimited.

It starts tomorrow, officially.

No more holding back and keeping it a solemn secret to everyone in the audience.

Application was in 2008 when the recession was near it’s worst. Even so, the financials were ridiculously strong.

Both banks had the same financial information.

Both banks had a minimum of 15 years of our loyal business.

So here we are mid-2014…

Which would you abandon if you could only pick one moving forward?
