about me About Me 12325619 10156233597155137 1652713295 o 200x300Ever since I quit my job November 13th of 2015, I’ve had the opportunity to fully invest my time into my own personal businesses. It’s been an interesting and adventurous few years without a 9-5 job, but I always tell myself, “I still can’t see myself going to work at a 9-5 job.” The people around me took a while to believe in sustainability of me not having a job like that, but most of them have come around (can you believe that??).
I was born and raised in the great state of Georgia, where sweat tea flows like milk and honey, and every street has the word peach in it (Peachtree St., Peachtree Pkwy, Old Peachtree St., the list goes on).

 

 

I grew up around music, played music, and made music. Among that, I had a strong knack for computers and technology, as well as web design around middle school. I didn’t get great grades, but I was the class genius when it came to anything computers. I even won technology student of the year 2009 as I graduated high school.
After high school, I took a few jobs, none of which I enjoyed, but it was the normal thing to do outside of going to college. My grades were not up to par with college standards so that wasn’t exactly in my future, although my parents kept telling me I should go.
in 2012 however, I stumbled upon the self development world, starting with Tim Ferriss’s 4-Hour Work Week book. I was intrigued and kept searching for more. Then came Zig Ziglar, Tony Robbins, Jim Rohn, Earl Nightingale, Napoleon Hill, Brian Tracy, Bob Proctor, John Maxwell, I mean the list just keeps going.
In the middle of 2012, I took a manufacturing job where I ended up listening to book all day while my machine ran. I consumed about a book a day. I loaded up my phone with books about once a week to listen to at work. They say the average american consumes less than a book a year. Well, I surpassed the average american by many lifetimes haha.
I listened to so many books and seminars at work, it could have easily equated to a few college degrees in the very least. I learned sales strategies, marketing, building relationships, business, psychology of the mind, and much more.
This was the key to me being able to quit my job and work for myself. And I’ve been working for myself for almost 3 years.
Through all that I have learned and experienced for the past 6 years, I’m here to share it with you through my blog.
