By the time he was 26-years-old, Clark Vandeventer was the deputy director of the Reagan Ranch, the historic home of President Ronald Reagan. By the time he was 30, he was a candidate for United States Congress. Clark bet everything on winning but a few months after his failed bid for Congress, he and his young family moved into his in-laws' garage. That's when Clark began the process of rebuilding his life by design. Today, Clark and his wife Monica, enjoy a lifestyle of design through patchwork income. When they are not traveling around the world, they split their time between Santa Barbara and Lake Tahoe. You can learn more about lifestyle design and patchwork income by reading Clark's book, unWorking or visit his blog at FamilyTrek.org. When he's not writing, skiing, or traveling with his family, Clark is a consultant to nonprofit organizations, training professional staff how to raise big bucks for their causes.
