Renovating an old property can be as soul-sapping as it is sweat-inducing, something Greg has come to know all too well. It’s during these times of sacrifice and relentless effort that the true value of hard work emerges—a topic we’re unpacking with raw honesty in our latest episode. We cover the spectrum of dedication and the sometimes punishing path to personal and professional growth. Alongside, we raise a glass to the tenacity required to chase dreams, reminding listeners that while the journey is arduous, the rewards are in the richness of the experience.

Our conversation takes a turn through the intricate dance of earning and living—pondering if less money could mean more life. As Gene and Greg reveal our divergent strategies towards achieving our aspirations, we dissect the harmony between analytical planning and cosmic trust, and the universal quest for a life brimming with purpose beyond the monotonous grind. We debate, we reflect, and we invite you to reconsider the milestones that matter, all the while navigating the tricky terrain of maintaining momentum without succumbing to burnout.
