Why Disconnecting From The Internet Improves Your Focus

I never envisioned that I’d end up in this situation. When the market went south, I was a construction contractor, running my own business. I’d take the jobs that others didn’t want — the little bitty ones, the $38,000, $40,000 jobs. One time I had up to 17 employees, all with no advertisements. It was like the jobs would just come in, because I didn’t spend time marketing.

At one point, the business was generating almost a half a million dollars a year. Of course, in construction work, the material costs a lot of money and the labor is very expensive. Nobody works for minimum wage, so you have to figure that in. I was living well. I got to count the money first, so that was a good benefit.
