Where was this 'laptop lifestyle', 'passive income' and '4 Hour Work Week' that all the other business owners were enjoying???

I was burnt out, suffering from adrenal fatigue, highly stressed, hardly ever home, and replacing healthy meals with cocktail-function-wine and room-temperature vol-u-vonts.
Something had to change... Exchanging my time for money simply wasn't sustainable.
