Ordinary Sherpa: Family Adventure Coaching and Design

Today's guest is one of my superheroes.  After struggling to figure out his path growing up a talk with his dad late one night nudged him into the world of photography.  He would go on to be, and still is, one of the best Sports Photographers of our time capturing award-winning photos for many professional sports.  And while I love photography and can appreciate his work, that isn’t what drew me to him.  His story Freelance to Freedom walked me through how he challenged the status quo and rewrote the rules to his own life so that he could live, work and play on his terms.  He is an author, coach, entrepreneurial guru, AND also a devoted husband and father who lives generously, creating the space for so many others to succeed in life, work and play.  Vincent Pugliuse, Welcome to Ordinary Sherpa. To Connect with Vincent PuglieseWebsite: https://totallifefreedom.com/ Podcast: Total Life FreedomBook: Freelance to Freedom Key Takeaways  If your life was a Thank You Tour, Where would you go and who would you visit? After the launch of his book Vincent and his family went on a thank you tour to personally meet and thank many of the people who helped him launch his book.   Curiosity is the cornerstone to community.  When you meet someone, be curious and ask questions. Letting go of some of the control as adults will allow kids curiosity to flourish.  In the Pugliese family, school is life.   Just say yes to things.  What’s the worst that could happen. Sometimes you need to be like Mr. Magoo, clueless, blind, and stubborn but just kept walking and things fell into place.  Just keep walking even if you aren’t sure where you are going. “I wish more people felt like the had nothing to lose.  Having no expectations allowed him to say “why not?” “It’s lonely at the top unless you take people with you.” Being at the top can be lonely but there is nothing saying you have to go alone.   Enjoy Life!  Don’t get lost in work and daily life.  Enjoy the moments of life that make it memorable.  Resources from this episode: Join the Ordinary Sherpa Facebook Group to interact with other listeners.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/ordinarysherpa Currently some fun threads on summer travel, hiking, and visits to National Parks  Will you leave Written Review #50 on Apple Podcasts:  https://ordinarysherpa.com/review/ National Park Pass Programs:  Every Kid Outdoors program for fourth graders: https://everykidoutdoors.gov/index.htm  and 2021 fifth grade voucher: https://www.nps.gov/kids/fifthgrade.htm Full list of passes and entry fees: https://home.nps.gov/seki/planyourvisit/fees.htm Join the Ordinary Sherpa email list: ordinarysherp.com/subscribe

Freelance Your Way To Freedom with Vincent Pugliese (SB RWD 106)

The Stacking Benjamins Show

Welcome to our Wednesday rewind show! With so much job uncertainty going around right now, the Fintern decided now would be a good time to revisit a great interview we had with freelance extraordinaire Vincent Pugliese. Vincent took himself from a mountain of debt to a successful freelance business, and shared with us his stories, lessons, and experiences he learned along the way. You can read the original show notes below: He had $140,000 in debt, a crappy paying job, and a baby on the way. What would Vincent Pugliese do? We ask the award-winning photographer that very question on today's show. He's photographed four Presidents and every major sport's national championship in the USA, but his debt story will have you shaking your head today. Plus, in our headlines segment, health savings accounts are all the rage, but what's going on with all of this money sitting in cash? We'll address that AND talk about new tax law spurring 401k contributions. We'll of course have more from the world of financial planning, throw out the Haven Life line to lucky listener Chris, who wonders, "Should a 20 year old hire a financial advisor?" Of course, we'll still score with some of Doug's delightful trivia, and more. Thanks toThanks to TurboTax Live for supporting Stacking Benjamins.
