462 – The Decision To Start My Own Business

by Cliff Ravenscraft on August 11, 2016


I’ve often told the story of just how much my wife, Stephanie, supported my decision to leave my career in insurance to pursue an career related to podcasting and technology. I’ve mentioned on several occasions, how she was the one who finally convinced me to make that decision.

What if I told you that you could actually listen to an audio recording of the conversation that Stephanie and I had immediately after making the decision that I would go in the very next day and tell my dad that I was leaving the family business, to start my own internet based business?

The fact is that you can hear the audio recording of that conversation, from September 26th 2007, in this week’s episode of The Cliff Ravenscraft Show.

    Wow! This is the first episode of yours I have ever listened to. You and Stephanie have obviously had an amazing journey. Zig Zigler said “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough people get what they want.” It sounds like you guys put that one to work! I too am struggling with decisions of change, growth, and serving others. I just wish I was 30 years younger. But as the saying goes, ‘the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.’ Thank you. Much success, and God speed.

  • From all of us who have taken the step and need reminders of why we took the leap, thank you!

  • Thank you Mark. I’m thrilled that you enjoyed the episode.

  • Mark, I’m honored to have you as a brand new listener. I’m equally thrilled to know that having this be your very first episode, it was something that you enjoyed.

    So true about the right time to plant a tree. I wish you great success in navigating the path ahead as you make bold decisions about how you will intentionally change things, how you will grow and how you will see to serve others in such a way that will lead to fulfilling life of no regrets.
