Be your own door - the name and the vision



If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door. - Milton Berle

This is one of my favourite quotes of all time and I have created this blog for people who believe in that vision, but perhaps need some help and/or support to go about making their vision a reality.

Being able to live the life you want starts with having enough money to finance it. Believe me, I understand how difficult that can be at any time, particularly right now when people of all ages can be struggling just to get by.

My basic take on getting to where you want to be in life is:

Do what you need to do until you’re finally able to do what you want to do.

Once you’ve reached a place where you’re happy, the work continues so that you maximize your chances of continuing to be able to live the life you want, even as circumstances change, which they will because change is a part of life and we all need to accept that fact as a reality.

This blog will be a mixture of my sharing my journey with you, together with general strategies for issues I think we all need to tackle to be able to live the lives we want to live and practical “hands-on” tips to help make our journey easier. We’ll look at issues such as dealing with debt and managing money, bringing in an income, whether that’s through a conventional career or some other means, organizing and planning and managing yourself and other people.


Each of us needs to find their own path in life, but we can all help and support each other along the way. I hope you’ll enjoy reading about my journey and I’d love to hear about yours.
