Great Money or Your Life AdviceTake it from a cancer survivor to READ and LIVE Mayowa's advice. Among my "life lessons" are many of the examples and truths shared here. Here are a few "hard won" lessons I would add:* There is ALWAYS enough money. * You have everything you need NOW (so don't wait). * When in doubt SIMPLIFY.
* Share, Share and SHARE (good and bad). * Friends ROCK so cherish, value and reward them.
* Failure happens (don't STOP or SLOW DOWN). * HUMBLE (works when you have NOTHING or SOMETHING). * LOVE (life is too short not to love what you do and who you are doing it with). I've gone broke several times. Right now I'm betting the farm and my 401k for the 4th time (and giving most of my time, energy and money away to learn how to help cure cancer). GIVE until you are desparate and then give some more. Giving when you have NOTHING is the true gift. You will NOT starve or be homeless. The WORST thing is death and taken from one who stares at the Big C on a regular basis death isn't all its cracked up to be (lol). If you live in fear you don't live. Don't let the "sing around the fire" sound of my advice deny the hard realities you may face at this moment. Life can be TOUGH and HARD (trust me I know), but put the headphones on and DO SOMETHING even if it the wrong thing. The world is divided between those who can DO things and those who aspire to do things. As Seth Godin says, "Artists SHIP" so simplify, fail and SHIP (and keep shipping). If an experience doesn't kill you it makes you stonger and if it does kill you back off a tad (lol). Great advice here, advice I've lived and am living and nothing quickens your heart as much as loving what you do and making a difference. When in doubt HELP PEOPLE and you will never starve :).

It is possible to live your dream - I've started several businesses with no money. No one ever said that you need to buy advertising or find a service or product that cost upfront money. Be creative - start small and then build your dream - whether it's a business or a different lifestyle. Look for free resources that will guide you toward making your dream happen. Don't stash your dream in a closet or basement - put your dream on paper and then let the world know about it. Only you can make it happen!
