What would you do if money were no longer a concern? Surf the best breaks, sail oceans, climb mountains, build schools in third-world countries, write a book, raise Peruvian fainting goats? What would you do if you didn't have to show up for work tomorrow morning?
Making that dream happen-stepping into an unknowable future for a life of adventure takes courage, decisiveness, an unwavering belief in yourself, and the willingness to take 100% responsibility for the outcome. Those happen to be the very same traits that define the successful trader. The skills you learn in pursuing your dream-through trading-might just remove money from the list of reasons you think that you can't fulfill it.
This book is about more than trading and personal finance strategies-we propose an entirely new way to evaluate risk, in life as well as in finances. By taking the right risks and ignoring the imagined ones, you'll be paid with the one priceless commodity that is truly limited in your life-time.

I was so moved by this book that I sent an email to the author. Here is what it said:
"I'm listening to the audiobook version of Live on the Margin and I'm literally in tears. This book is changing my life. Its helping me realize a vision that I've had for a while, but just wasn't brave enough to take hold of. I'm a 38 year old single mom with a 15 year old son, and I've been spinning my wheels for a while now, feeling "trapped" in my current situation. Career is going fine, but I'm not really interested in living a career. An adventure is what I've really been yearning for. Experiences, not possessions. I think that's what my son needs too. Did I mention I love the ocean? And sailboats. And stock trading (although I've only dabbled in it).
I've crunched the numbers and I think I can squeeze out enough savings in 18 months to get ready for the trip, 24 months max. How do I stay motivated for that long without losing the vision? That's what scares me. I don't want to give up. - I want to see this thing through. This is the most energized I've felt in years.
Just wanted to say thanks."
That was 8 days ago. My feelings have not wavered and I've taken several steps already to re-design my life as an owner, instead of a worker. If you want to know what that means, read the book.
Best of luck,
