MAJOR LIFE UPDATE: I’m pausing my travels indefinitely to live in Bali, Indonesia! After continuously traveling the world for the last 18 months, I’m back to where I originally started, and am ready to call this place home for a while.⠀ .⠀ Last year I quit my job, sold everything, and bought a one way ticket to Bali. I was a bit lost then but i was certain about two things: I never wanted another “job” again and I wanted to start living life by my own rules. ⠀ .⠀ Since that leap of faith, I’ve lived in 12 countries, created enough passive income that I’ll never have to work again (if I don’t want to), and have a clear vision of both my purpose in life and what’s important to me (happiness, impact, freedom, and individualism).⠀ .⠀ Life is far too short to wait for retirement, money, success, or the perfect moment to start living your dream life. All it takes is a total commitment to searching for and finding what will make you happy and satisfied. And then taking action towards that NOW, not tomorrow, not next year, not after you get promoted.⠀ .⠀ Cheers to living life to the fullest! Come find me in Bali 🤙.

It’s freedom, not money, that makes us happy. U.S. society trains us from an early age (through music, movies, etc) to associate money with happiness. . Yet studies show that lottery winners aren’t happier than the average person.⠀ .⠀ The cost of living in Bali is about $1,000/month and the cost of living where I’m from, Boston, is about $3,500/month.⠀ .⠀ You don’t need to be rich to be financially free if you’re living in a place where the living expenses are 28-30% of what they are in a major U.S. city. ⠀ .⠀ And it’s significantly easier to find a remote job that will pay you in U.S. dollars than most people realize.⠀ .⠀ “Mo money, mo problems” is a widely accepted concept yet no one ever says “Mo freedom, mo problems.” And as I showed above, you don’t actually need a lot of money to be free.⠀ .⠀ If you’re chasing the next pay raise, I challenge you to ponder if that is actually what you need to maintain long-term happiness. And whether your career path is designed to make you money or to make you happy and fulfilled.⠀ .⠀ Life is too short to not optimize for happiness. If you aren’t happy, make a change.⠀
