I was a little strange as a kid…

I enjoyed the usual “little boy” stuff like dinosaurs, bugs and tree-climbing but I also had an eye towards the future. I was the 10 year old nerd who was buying rare comic books, not so that I could read them, but so that I could seal them in bags as an investment and sell them for a profit when I was older.

I was fascinated by business for good reason… I saw grown ups who felt stuck and it didn’t look fun. I wanted to have some freedom and control in my life. You’ll find that I’m VERY passionate about this.

Feeling stuck is a killer.

  • Spending years of your life working at something that you don’t really love…
  • Having no control over your life…
  • Having a boss tell you that a work project is more important that your weekend trip or your family’s special event…

All of this can suck the life out of a person and I knew that there had to be another way.

My comic books didn’t open the door to riches so I followed the usual path – education and a job. I worked in nursing. I learned a lot and enjoyed helping a lot of people. Eventually, though, I made a discovery… I didn’t control my time.

Being called in, working late to cover shifts… These were the norm. There were even whispers of mandatory overtime and if I wanted time off it always depended on somebody else saying yes. Sometimes, they didn’t say yes.

It was time for a change… back to school. I earned my doctorate of natural medicine with a specialty in acupuncture. I built a clinic in a small community and love helping people but again, I made a discovery… Trading time for money has no real end in sight. There is always a gap, either now or later.

What about the future? What about when I can’t do my work anymore?

Do I trust that the government will take care of me and my family? (That’s a big “NOT LIKELY” on that one)

It was time to be like I was as a kid…

To look up from what I was doing and put an eye towards the future; to remember the passion for freedom and control in my own life.

How?

By learning how to use the internet to build a business that allows me to serve even more people…

This blog is about that journey and sharing what I learn and love along the way. I hope you will join me.

There’s plenty of freedom to go around.
