After what I can only describe as a spiritual awakening, about eight years ago, I reached a point where I decided to begin living my life NOW rather than "planning to live my life" at some future time.
In my former life as a Serial Entrepreneur, I was the founder of over 7 companies. I habitually worked 70-80 hours per week. Over a period of 10 years I watched as my physical health declined in addition to experiencing an increasing disconnect from life. The closer I got to "success" I began to notice that with each new benchmark I achieved, rather than feeling a great sense of accomplishment, it would only necessitate the creation of an even loftier benchmark. This system I eventually realized was never going to lead to happiness.
In light of that revelation I decided to sell my businesses and spend the rest of my life living every day in a way that makes me happy. To learn to nourish my soul rather than my wallet. To seek out and surround myself with a community of like-minded people. And to explore new ways of connecting to my higher self.
I view the "new me" as a student of life, of spiritual laws, of esoteric studies and of humanity. I am on a mission not only to see the world and meet its people but hopefully leave it a better place than I found it. I haven't figured out how yet but sharing the renewed passion I have for life with others seems like a good starting place.

I will take a second to offer a shamless plug for myself here:
I am a published author. I wrote a book on how to travel around the world with very little money.
