I know many of you were around for the start of my 40 Days to Homeless series. For you and any new list members, I’d like to do an update.
On the situation, I have some really good news and some really bad news in equal parts. On the bad news front, I don’t want to strangle you with the whole story here, so I published a more complete version on my blog. What you’ll read there is part of the reason I’m only going to give you the good news on this update.
The good news…We’re not going to be homeless!
I landed a huge client back in South Carolina that is financially worth it to move back there from Chattanooga TN. Not that I want to leave the mountains and rivers, but I feel it’ll be a big step for easing our ‘big family’ housing situation in TN. It’s hard to find room for a married couple and 5 kids in rental housing, but we’ve managed to already secure housing there at the beach.
Aside from the big new client, work is also picking up in other areas as well…
I just wrapped up a 2 week speaking tour in the New England area that included 5 lectures at the Connecticut EMS Expo. My 10yo went with me and joined me in some of my video reviews.
As I wrote this, I’m currently in Nashville TN doing corporate training for Delta Airlines and the TN Treasury Department. This left me with some free time during the day to shoot video for several reviews at area state parks and hiking trails.
And the best news of all…
My 12yo son has just published his first book. His book The Kids Guide to Salads began as a homeschool assignment and morphed from a family experiment into a full book complete with photography. You can order your own copy HERE on Amazon, but if you want an autographed copy, get in touch. He gets really excited and has been working on his signature.
