How do I work from home? How am I making $1.5 million from home? Why is the state of Texas taking my business? Join me in this week of work to find out my first steps to $1.5 million and how the government threatened to take it all away!
I know it all sounds extreme and a bit spammy, but it certainly felt that intense going through it! We made a few mistakes in the first month working on building our own business. Continue reading to get the full story.
What’s it like working from home?
I’m new to this type of work. I’ve been in public education for 15 years now, so moving from bells to business has been a, let’s say – major shift!
I asked Nancy what she thinks and she said,
“Well…I feel like you’ve prioritized things and you’re making new products every single day, and you manage your time well.”Nancy
What she doesn’t know doesn’t hurt her, right?
Working from home is great!
I’m in control of my time, take breaks, when I want to, work late night if I want to, pretty much do what I want.
And making $1.5 Million is great too!
Because when you own your own business there is no career ladder or salary cap.
You get paid for the value you provide. That’s pretty cool!
Making $1.5 Million From Home
This is an amazing win!
We’ve figured that to do what we want with the sailboat and tropic island, we’re going to need to dig deep and put forth 10 times the effort than we ever have before!
So we’ve consulted with a team of experts: our CPA, business attorney, a financial advisor, bankers, and a business strategist.
Meeting with the CPA is always great. I bring a page of questions and soak up all the information I can. This week, Olivia came with me, and she loved it!
She’s wanting to be a banker at this point in her life, but her takeaways from the meeting were a little…strange.
“I’m going to get your wealth when you die.”Olivia
I couldn’t believe this was the big idea for her!
Back Taxes, Losing It All!
Yep, little mistakes can have costly consequences. This is a mistake I won’t soon forget!
It was a normal Tuesday evening, and I sat down on the couch to clean out some junk mail. There were six envelopes that all looked the same. They said, “State of Texas” on them. Surely, this was some spam mail.
These were legit.
We received 18 months of back taxes due because of some clerical oversights.
This was a killer! We would lose it all!
I didn’t sleep at all that night.
I stayed up all night reading the entire Comptroller website, reading the Texas Administrative Code, reaching out to multiple business and tax attorneys, and trying to find a way out of this mess!
I didn’t get much work done the next day.
I was near meltdown.
It’s at this point in the day when more breaks are in order. But this time, I’m getting out of the office!
Work From Home…or Grocery Store?
It’s one of my favorite places to go…I’m not sure why. So a break from the pending doom was much needed.
Plus, it’s hurricane season, so I decided to stock up on canned goods.
And important beverages.

I’d love to hear your thoughts. Would you like working from home? Would you like the freedom? Would it be too lonely…too quiet? Would Netflix be calling your name too much?
Leave me a comment below. Cheers!
