You’re The Boss

You’re The Boss

Contrary to what we’re taught growing up, it’s not about being rich.

Freedom. Excitement. Choices.

That’s what the good life is all about.

When people speak about being rich they don’t mean it literally. What they actually want is what they money buys: freedom.

Did you ever stop to think about why you want more money in the first place?
It’s not merely to count the zeros in your bank account but rather to do the things you want to do.

The ski trip to Switzerland.
Extra time to learn Spanish.
A last minute trip to Paris or Hawaii, just because you can.

Being truly rich is having control over how you spend your time, where and when you work and whom you spend your time with.

You are your own boss. You make the rules.

Sound like the dream?
Then start living it.

    Alec.. Your story is quite inspirational and I hope to one day find my niche that will give me the freedom of making my own choices and being able to get up and just go with my family. When that day comes I hope to be able to reach out to you for some advice whether it’s with business or poker. Keep doing what your doing.

    Alec, wanted to say thank you for allowing a player such as myself on providing your knowledge and wisdom to make us better players. Yes, it has been a very tough road for me because I love the game so much. I want to get better in cash game. Far as cash games goes, do you think that it would be a great advantage for me to write down information on how certain players certain hands? I want to gain the advantage on these players. Have a great weekend.
