    Great post Dave! I especially like the last couple you mentioned. Freeing yourself from the constraints of money and time (FT job) will let you achieve all of these goals! It is great to see that you aspire to help young entrepreneurs succeed.

    Thanks for your comments Zach – The entrepreneurial life really comes down to money and time, and the quest for the right balance between those two. Hmmm….sounds like a blog post idea…

    As to helping out young (although I would broaden it by saying “new”) entrepreneurs – how can you NOT get excited about that? To be able to start on the ground floor and watch as someone who turns pursuing their passion into a viable business, it doesn't get much better than that.

    Money and time are the two things that control our lifestyle. If we don't have either of those things, we can't do the fun things in life!

    …and if we misuse either – it eventually costs us both.
