Building a Legacy

I’ve been in kind of a funk lately. I have been at the same job, doing the same thing, for going on 6 years now. I feel it’s time for a change. The thought of going back to college and starting all over in a whole new direction is both exciting and terrifying at the same time. I do not have a degree at this time. I was one of those students that took individual classes that I thought would be interesting but never really had a certain degree plan that I wanted to do. Psychology, Sociology, English, History, Math, Commercial Music to name a few. I do have all my “basics” out of the way so that’s a start. That was, what feels like, ages ago. I’m a new man now. I have a beautiful, smart, intelligent wife and 2 wonderful girls now. I am not sure if I have the time and energy I once had. I have always wanted to start my own business as well. Something that is mine and I can run it any way I see fit. Can I do it all??? Start a new career path, go back to school, and start up my own business, all while still taking care of my number 1 priority, my family. I would like to think so. I am also not really sure which direction I want to take with the career/school field. I have such a wide variety of interests, hobbies, and God given talents that sometimes it’s hard to narrow it down to just one or even a few. One thing I do know about myself is that no matter what I choose, when I set my mind to it, I’m all in. I’ve been that way my whole life. One of my favorite quotes is “The secret to success is the focus of purpose.” I do know that it is time for a change, a big change. I feel it deep down in the depths of my soul. There is a stirring inside me that keeps my mind up all night. It makes me feel a little crazy at times. That’s where I am at right now. I’ve tried to talk to some people about it but they really just don’t get it. My wife gets it and is very supportive of me. I want to work in a field I’m passionate about and have my own business. Leaving a legacy to pass on to my children and my children’s children. I want them to look back and say WOW look at what grandpa built, I want to do something like that too but even bigger. Leaving something that I can pass down through the generations of my family is very important to me. So it’s time to start building it.

I know this is a little different than usual but I just wanted to share something with you guys that has been on my mind and heart lately. If you have any suggestions, comments, or anything to add at all I would LOVE to hear it. Please leave a comment down below. And as always, Have a Great Day!!!!!!

  1. You can absolutly do it man! It might be much more difficult now than it would have been when you were younger, single, with little responsability, but you could totally pull it off. Although, I think you’ve kind of already started something that you could turn into a real business. What you;ve started to build with your web site and social media is something that you could turn into a totally legit business (if that’s the direction you want to go). That’s kind of what I was trying to get into with my vids and website, I just havn’t had the time in the past year to really plan it out and go for it. I’m always around for any support or help you may need brother so jsut let me know. Just remember you can do ANYTHING you set your mind to and don’t be afraid to be as ambitious as you can imagine.

  2. I fully hear you, man. Going to school full time with a family is tough. If I can do it, I know that you can. While going to school, I also helped my wife set up her business.

    I am right there with about building a legacy, too. I’m not there yet, but I’m looking at the steps required to start brewing for profit. It seems to me you have a pretty good base to build on with your pipes and carvings, is that what you want to get into?

    Good luck and let me know if I can do anything to help!

    • Thanks Robert. I’m still in the planning phase with all this and am not really sure which direction I want to take yet.

      Good luck with the brewing. I would love to do a collaboration brew sometime.

  3. Dude I am there with you right now. I have been here for 7 years and I hate coming in and dealing with lazy people. I just finished my degree, but don’t have a clue what I am going to do. I does suck that, we have to work for others. I want to do my own business as well, but I don’t have the funds to back myself up on it. You have a huge gift and I know that you will find a way on meeting your goals, with the quickness. I am on voxer, hit my ass up dawg!!!!

    • Thanks Ray. I think one of the hardest parts of this is sorting out everything to try and find some clarity and focus on the mission.
