Freedom of a Millionaire

Where are you on a Friday afternoon?  Working for yourself, in your time schedule, or at the beckon call of a boss?  The freedom of working for yourself earns you the right and responsibility to plan your schedule.  For Lee Arnold, October means a trip to the pumpkin patch with his wife and three small children.  You are thinking, well then he just works all day Saturday to make it up.  Not necessarily!  Freedom comes with responsibility.  Many millionaires are passionate about their work, the thrill of big deals and new breakthroughs.  But just as prevalent is their desire and love for family time.  It’s the joy of being able to schedule family time when they need you, instead of when your boss says you are free to go.

I ran across this article in USA Today as I wondered who else might be heading to the pumpkin patch:

Thad Starr, of Pleasant Hill, Ore., tips his hat after winning in the World Championship Pumpkin Weigh-Off contest in Half Moon Bay, Calif., Monday, Oct. 13, 2008. Starr’s pumpkin weighed 1,528 pounds (693 kg) and beat the local contest record.
