My wife and I graduated from Ivy League universities and went on to top business and law schools. We both work for major law firms or tech companies. We were successful in every way that our friends, our family, and our co-workers understood. Nice house, nice cars, lots of fancy stuff. And we were absolutely miserable. Zombies living out a life we were told to love. In 2015 we had our first child – a beautiful little girl – and we both woke up. Our lives were being lived on borrowed time. Time that was slipping away day by day, never to return. At that point we set a goal for ourselves – have enough saved to leave our jobs forever by her third birthday, in 2018.
But we also set a second goal. That we would start building the world we want our daughter to live in, one small piece at a time, one person at a time. That we would start helping others follow the same path to freedom that we found. Ours is a quiet revolution, a revolution of small steps and incremental changes. A revolution to encourage those around us to think differently, to throw off shackles they’ve worn for so long, to serve a higher purpose than slaving away at desks day after day. This is a small window into that journey. We recommend that you start at the first post and work forward. See you on the other side.
