Today I’d like to share an excerpt from an MML reader email I received a while back. Raj, who also shared a DIY DYL, had this to share:
… Last week my husband and I got some horrible news. He was laid off from work last September and was expecting to receive benefits until this fall, unfortunately, there is no more funding in the program and he has just been informed that he only gets paid for another 4 weeks. As you can imagine this hit us like a tonne of bricks. We have two young children, and I am a freelance marketing consultant with not a lot of work right now. I was totally crushed, but I visited your blog for inspiration and a pick me up, and it worked!
Rather than freaking out and falling apart, my husband and I are going to start a marketing company together. We are going to take the skills we have and turn them into a lifestyle that works for our family. Both parents working from home, making money, and being involved in our children’s lives. We are even going to blog about the whole journey.

Today I’d like to share with you the results of their intentions, hard work, and faith. Please stop by and support Raj and her husband on this new, bold path.
Talk about turning shit into fertilizer.
