Ah, today it’s Friday. The courts are closed. I wake up leisurely in my big house around 9:30am, answer some emails, and take some phone calls. My physical office is located a block from my house in Fishtown. After a session of Crossfit, I decide to ride my bike down to the pool, and work from there instead.
It’s been a great year. I’ve got money in the bank. Earlier this month I took a few trips to the Poconos to shoot guns in the woods.
Right this second I’m looking into a taking a trip to Alaska because I want to ride a dog sled.
Being self employed, single, and having a few bucks in your 30s is absolutely fucking fantastic. Anyone who tells you differently is lying.
Three years ago my life was very different. I had a job working for a corporate law firm, and I was married. Most if not all my time went into billing hours and trying to work my way up to partner. At some point around 30, I knew I wanted more out of life but wasn’t sure how to go about it.
Enter Mike Cernovich, author of Danger & Play. His philosophy on life is considered radical, and even misogynistic by some. Men can save their money, develop streams of passive income, and live a lifestyle that is generally awesome. Mike is also an advocate of functional fitness, and generally being awesome at life. There are very few people whose advice I value. Cernovich is one of them. His blog changed my life.
