Like any other business, mortgage business also has a cycle. When the business is slow, some will change careers(back as engineers), some will find a position at local bank(work for retail), and I will hang on until I retire.When we were very busy, like those years from 2008 to 2013, we had only a few hours' sleep, we complained and wondered when we could slow down so that we had more time for the rest. And we prayed and prayed, and I think now it is the time.I read a lot of investment books recently. And I think I should do better in the future. Actually the investment in stock is easy, if you plan to invest in the long run. Talked to one of my closest friends about the investment. I advised him to let others manage his rentals. From my own opinion, the most important investment is the time. You can not buy the time, and when you get older, you will find that your "time" is limited. So we do not have to spend the time on those things we do not like, or on things only save us a few bucks. We need to buy the time, to enjoy the life, or even just use the extra time to have a simple nap after lunch.Recommended the book: Friend & Foe: When to Cooperate, When to Compete, and How to Succeed at Both. She reads much faster than I do. Just can not compete with those who has English as the first language. My goal is to complete 20 pages a day, and 120 to 160 pages for her is easy.
