Today’s Startup Dad Episode "From Leap To Success In 6 Months!” with David Thompson husband and father of 4 (2 foster).
A little bit about David and his WHY: "I was brought up to walk up the corporate ladder to achieve SUCCESS. So, of course, I did. I spent 10 years working very closely with one successful entrepreneur within his company, and I did climb the corporate ladder, and did achieve much SUCCESS. But I realized that I didn't want to commute 2 hours a day to make an above average wage. I believed that I could do that myself, by living out my God-given purpose and passion, which is Financial Advising.
So, after putting it off for two years, I took pen to paper 2 years ago, wrote out what SUCCESS was to me, took a class to help me understand my purpose, and how to attain it, and then made a plan to make it happen. And last October, I left a VERY stable career in Human Resources to help people attain financial happiness. And today, my business is beginning to take-off, and I'm excited to see where God takes us, but one of the greatest assets to this lifestyle has been the ability to take and pickup my kids from daycare, instead of dropping them off at daycare at 7am, and not seeing them until 6pm.
To me, I am already 'living the good life'. And, 6 months from now, a year from now, 3 years from now, life gets better...the wife quits her full-time job, etc."
