Good Morning DINKS. Would you consider your marriage to be luggage? So often when we become a couple and we lose our individuality. We start to consider our spouse before we consider our self and we may even put our personal goals on hold in order to help our spouse achieve theirs.
What would you do if your spouse told you tomorrow that they wanted to travel the world and they were going with or without you? Would you give up your stability, your career, and your dual income to follow your spouse’s dream?
The reason this subject is coming up is because I know two couples who recently broke up and got divorced because one of them wanted to pursue their own personal dreams and their spouse didn’t share the same goals. So one person left their couple to pursue their personal goals and unfortunately it cost them their relationship. However this may not always be a couples reality. Very often DINKS do share the same dreams and the same goals. Even more often we may be willing to make some small compromises in our personal goals and dreams in order to be with our spouse.
Dream Save Do: Live Your Dreams
When Warren Talbot from Married with Luggage contacted DINKS Finance to offer us a copy of his new book called “Dream Save Do: A No-Nonsense, Step By Step Blueprint for Amassing the Cash You Need to Live Your Dreams” we were more than delighted to accept his offer and giveaway a copy to one lucky DINKS reader. Warren and his wife Betsy are currently Married with Luggage, but it has a whole other meaning. Warren and Betsy decided to follow their mutual dream of travelling the world…together. They are currently travelling around the world, they are living out of their luggage, they are together, and they are happy!
Warren Talbot and his wife Betsy tell their story of how they quit their corporate jobs and packed their bags to pursue their dreams of travelling around the world. Warren says that the book “Dream Save Do” “is not a get-rich-quick scheme or a fad. It is simply a more focused way to think about money and how it can be used to fund your dream life. If you aren’t living your dream life, then you are in the same place as 90% of the people on the planet. And we know, because we were there, too.”
Now it’s time to Give Away a Copy of the book “Dream Save Do: A No-Nonsense, Step By Step Blueprint for Amassing the Cash You Need to Live Your Dream.” The book is currently a Kindle Edition but Warren and Betsy Talbot have been gracious enough to offer one lucky DINKS reader a copy of the book in whichever electronic format you wish or even in PDF format if you prefer.
