Stories inspire, but leave reader curious

From time to time I read these wonderful articles regarding people who leave their jobs and start successful businesses or decide to write a novel ["She's got equity now in stew," Business, Sept. 3].

I'm sure there are many people out there asking the same questions that I have been asking: Just how do you pay for health insurance while doing this? What about car payments, mortgage payments, food, etc.?

These articles would be more informative if they would include information about how these people actually managed to live while following their dreams.

Maybe there are secrets the rest of us could use to leave our jobs and do something that we have dreamed of.
