In thinking the last few nights of what I wanted my next post to cover – I decided to keep it easy and just give a “one month in” update and a few strange and dull things that have happened.
I quit the 9-5 drudgery for a new life on my terms!
A few weeks ago started a very new chapter in life – one not beholden to a particular schedule, commute, office, or even a clock-watching manager! After years of minimizing our stuff, significantly lowering our expenses, paying off debt completely, shoring up retirement accounts, and watching our net worth grow – I’ve decided to pull the plug on my 9-5 career as I’ve come to know it the last 20 years. Unless a too good to pass up opportunity shows up – I don’t plan on working as a W-2 employee again for a very long time – if not forever.
One of the big no-no’s in trying to build out a website and blog with the intent of having others, well, read it, is to keep it updated. After buying my domain and setting up my email in July 2018 the desire and intent was there but the scenario and circumstances conspired against that. The cosmic forces told me in brutal fashion I was not ready.
I took a step back after realizing a few mountains, hills, and molehills needed to be climbed and conquered.
