Is Entrepreneurship Really Better than the 9-5?

Now that nobody in our house has a "real job," we get a lot of strange looks and questions. So, is entrepreneurship really better than the 9-5 grind?Ever since Greg quit his job in March, we’ve been getting a lot of strange questions and looks. It seems that people thought it was perfectly normal for me to “not really have a job,” but it’s super weird for Greg to fall into that camp too.

Spring has sprung, and I'm jonesing for summer to arrive. I can hardly wait! I'll share my summer bucket list if you share yours. Sound like a deal?What up peeps?!? We just got back from our (almost) free family trip to Jamaica, and I hate to brag, but it was Awwwesoooommmme!
