This is for all the parents or people who are still working a full time job and thus have limited bursts of time available to work on your business.

Barbara Turley serves as inspiration to anyone who is currently working a job they like, yet want to quit because of a desire for the kind of freedom that comes from being your own boss.
Barbara had a solid career in the world of finance. The only problem was the incompatibility with the way she likes to work and the way the corporate world expected her to work.
A chance trip on a Virgin flight in Australia introduced her to my EJ blog (I was featured in Virgin inflight magazine many years ago), which opened the door to the world of making money from blogs. She read a lot of the articles on EJ, and later joined my Blog Mastermind program.
Barbara decided to take the leap, quit her job, and began implementing her strategy to become a "women and wealth" coach, helping other women with their financial security.

Morgan previously worked in the mortgage world. He became quite experienced in the field, but did not like some of the practices going on in his industry.
