Why It’s Not Always About the Money

My guest today is a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, professional blogger, podcaster, and an entrepreneur.

Shockingly, he’s also an engineering director for the firm that makes the microprocessors that go into your iPhone.

My guest and his wife started their first business, Bumblebee Linens, after his wife became pregnant and wanted to quit her job. Their online store managed to replace her $100K salary in just a year.

He is the founder of MyWifeQuitHerJob.com where he offers advice on blogging and starting up small businesses. He is also the host of the My Wife Quit Her Job podcast, an interview show involving small business entrepreneurs who started their ventures to improve their lifestyle.
