My wife and I graduated from top 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, high incomes, great jobs, lots of fancy stuff. But we were living a life we were told to love, not one that brought real happiness. 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 – set ourselves free by her third birthday, in 2018. We would leave our corporate jobs and chart a new path.
After 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. Ours is a quiet revolution, a revolution of small steps and incremental change. A fight to encourage those around us to think differently, to throw off shackles worn for too long, to serve a higher purpose. This is a small window into that journey.
We recommend starting at the first post and working forward. See you on the other side.
