This newsletter and website is my passion business, it is the guidance I wish I had at my fingertips years ago.

Working for someone else as an employee never felt right to me. This isn’t to say I corporate life was bad, necessarily– I just couldn’t kick the feeling that there was something more out there for me.

I don’t want you to feel trapped, stuck, or in a rut. My goal with this publication is to give you everything you need to confidently leave your executive or high-level job and follow a path that aligns with your soul, all while minimizing any drastic lifestyle changes for you and your family.

Generally I try to write about my journey from career executive to self-employed solopreneur within a framework of 3 general categories:

Category 1: Body & Mindset

Baseline things we need to do to be successful in a path to a fulfilling self-employed future. Life hacks, growth hacks, and fun esoteric stuff.

Category 2: Finance

The elephant in the room. Things we need to ensure consistent income for our family and lifestyle. Financial fears will kill most dreams before they even have a chance to take off.

Category 3: Fulfillment Roadmap

Step by step tactics, exercises, and strategies to actually get moving and make progress toward self-employment.
