Pulling from his own personal struggles, missed opportunities, and career successes, Ken helps people discover what they were born to do and provides practical steps to make their dream job a reality.

Our question of the month comes in from Anonymous from Cleveland:
I just finished reading an article of yours about paying off your mortgage early. Congratulations on that. I have a 30-year mortgage and I’m not sure if I want to pay it off, but it got me thinking about where I should be with my financial goals.
I’m 35, married, two kids. I want to make sure I’m on track.
