    Thanks for sharing some of your story and acknowledging an important aspect of your success.

    Do you have any plans to use your position to help change the system (political, educational or otherwise)?

      Sure!

      No serious plans. We’ve currently been focused on our kids first, but are donating time to local food banks and have donated money to some proposed measures and our local Blanchet House.

      We aren’t well off enough that pursuing the next step in what people normally put donated time towards is an option; just our 5-10% of our time and money is a lot larger than it was before we hit this point. Neither of us have serious plans to grind for more money again, so this likely wont change.
