I Want

Something happened yesterday which made me realize even more the need to seek income generating activities elsewhere other than our being doctors.

This does not mean that we are quitting the practice of medicine. It's just that the practice of medicine is pretty unpredictable-- you're not sure how much money you will end up with at the end of the day, at the end of the week and at the end of the month. And once you call in sick for just one day, you don't have income for that day BUT you still have to pay for the day's overhead expenses.

That's why I'm now taking on writing jobs aside from paid blogging and doing some online buy and sell thing. Which is great because I do love to write, and I could do so in my free time (which, admittedly, is getting less and less).

But I do feel that I would like us to have a business someday. A brick and mortar store with all the basic works, receipt printers and all. Something that will still run even if something happens and I'm out for the day. Something that I can actually bequeath to my children.

Something that most Tsinoys and Tsinays are known for -- a successful business.
