On Tuesday night, my wife and I discussed my unemployment. Don’t worry, I’m still happily employed. The problem is: I don’t want to be!

My wife is very supportive of this (really, she is!) but she is also rightfully concerned about our family’s financial well-being. So we sat down, talked it through, and came to an agreement.

I have a ways to go. $770 per week is a lot of money, but I’ve made some really good progress over the past year in increasing my earnings, so I’m confident that I can get there in the next 3 to 5 years.
