Imagine you’re financially secure. You have enough money to support your family and pursue your dreams. You enjoy fulfilling work with a reasonable schedule. What would you do with both your time and money?
Next, imagine you’re financially independent. Your investments create enough money to support yourself and your family. What would you do?
Okay, let’s shake things up.
Imagine you visit your doctor, who tells you that you only have 5-10 years to live. You’ll never feel sick, and you’ll have no advance notice of the moment of your death. Your financial position is the same as it is today. What would you do?
Now imagine the same scenario as before — you still have 5-10 years to live — but in this scenario, you have unlimited funds. What would you do?
What if you only had 24 hours? What would you do? And what regrets would you have, if any?
These are 5 of 11 probing questions about money and life that I asked a crowd of 100+ people at the World Domination Summit.
I reveal the rest of the questions — and describe several of the answers I heard from the audience — on today’s episode. Get Rich Slowly founder J.D. Roth also joins me on this episode to talk about how to build a more fulfilling life.
I put together a PDF that contains all 11 questions from this episode, along with space where you can write your answers directly.
Think through these exercises, and feel free to leave a comment with what you’ve discovered.

You’re busy. You don’t need to junk up your schedule with mundane tasks.
Here’s a question: if you’re an entrepreneur or someone with a side hustle, how much time do you spend organizing invoices, chasing your clients down for late payments, and messing with receipts and reimbursements?
Yeah — more than you’d like to.

Does your email stress you out? I have three email accounts — two business, and one personal. Keeping up with them is a daily struggle.
So I recently began using a service called Sanebox that prioritizes your inbox. Their algorithms separate actual important emails from noise and clutter, so that you can focus on what’s important. The basic plan only costs $7 a month.
Sanebox is offering both a free trial AND an additional $25 credit to anyone who signs up at http://www.sanebox.com/paula.
