This question of What Would Bob Do if he left his job in Corporate America at a company where he's spent the last 8 or 9 obviously a big one. Clearly I'm getting it done now. But I'm not getting it all done and that's where Bob comes in.

The idea behind having Bob work fulltime on the blog and online business is that not only would it free me up to write more books - which is where the bulk of the income is generated - but it would also give us time and resources to develop in spaces and places I just simply don't have time for - and likely never will.

So like I said in the last post blogging is real and I'm a full time blogger. When I say 'full time' I mean I feel like I never stop working. I guess that's what happens when you love what you do.

I write books. I write blog posts. I write tutorials. I socialize on social media. I do videos. I answer emails...a lot of email.  I answer comments on comments on comments. I manage accounts. I manage clients. I manage book deals. I manage two children who are about to be out of school for the summer. Most importantly or impressively, perhaps, I manage to get it all done.
we're at a crossroads. for months we've casually - and half jokingly - thrown around the idea that he could work for with me. the last few days though have been intense. we've taken a good, hard look at the possibility that we could actually do this as a couple. we could be a blogging couple making our living - a good living - working online. it's scary you guys. it's really freaking scary.

we're talking about my husband. my prom date. the father of my children. my partner in crime for the last 17 years leaving a six figure income, health benefits and a 401k. we're talking about him walking away to become my business partner. my business is based on a blog.

it sounds freaking crazy. even to me. it's scary. let me tell you it's scary. but i know the potential. i've gone from making a few cents a day to buying a car in cash with one month's earnings from the blog. i mean i am sure bob remembers the time - not all that long along, maybe six or seven years back, i stood in our kitchen in our townhouse in baltimore giddy over making .17 in a day. you think i'm kidding. i'm not. you have to start somewhere.full time blogging is real thing. not just like a passing thing - like a real career.  it's a new career that a lot of people still look at me like 'huh?' you're a blogger.  yeah i know the look well. real well. but's real and let me tell you it's so real my husband is considering leaving his job to make my business a family business.

did i mention we have two kids who we're saving to put through college.'s scary
