I’m Pete, and this is my favorite T-shirt:
So while I might spend my time taking care of 2 kids (aka future bloggers) and interviewing world-class bloggers and online entrepreneurs…it wasn’t always this way.
Would you believe I used to be a boring accountant?
Oh? You would? Oh. Right.
Well it’s true. Here’s the old me:
- I spent 6+ years in college in 5 different majors, not really knowing which direction to head in my life.
- I spent another 3 years getting a Masters in Accounting, passing the CPA exam, and jumping into Corporate America.
- I worked for some amazing companies, with equally amazing coworkers….but
I wasn’t myself. I was good at all my jobs (my bosses thought so at least, and that’s what counts…right?), but I always wanted more.
- I wanted to be location-independent.
- I wanted to travel with my family.
- I wanted to spend more time with my son (and now daughter).
- I wanted to be in charge of my own income stream.
So how’d I end up here?
In late 2016, I quit my full-time job earning $70k a year, and ventured into full-time entrepreneurship earning $0 a year.
Well, in guaranteed income at least.
First, you MUST know this…
This transition was hard. Hard for me, hard for my wife (and she’s super supportive), hard for my kids. We made sacrifices in order to make time for my own business ventures, and to be location-independent.
It was hard. Like, really hard.
But here I am. Producing content, interviewing interesting people…and trying to get paid for it 🙂
