Today I turn 25, this day marks the halfway point of my 20’s, and to me in many ways is a big landmark. The last 5 years have been quite a journey, and I know the next 5 years will have even more in store for me then I can possibly imagine. I think I have spent the last 5 years fairly well, even though I’ve made more than my fair share of mistakes. With this website I plan to take the next 5 years and figure out how to live them optimally in every aspect that I can.
I am a 25 year old entrepreneur currently living in Medellin, Colombia. I quit my job earlier this year to pursue my dream of freedom, freedom to live my life how I please. Since then I have automated my income, traveled the world, and learned more than I ever could have imagined. This website will focus on knowledge and on how to live life to its best, which I will not claim to be an expert on yet. I will claim to have a stronger desire to find out how to do so more than almost anyone you know. This website will focus on self-development as well as acquiring for the readers new knowledge, and testing the theories of in all asects of life.
I’ve done a lot in the last 5 years. I got into my dream college, got my dream job, realized it wasn’t my dream, created a business, struggled with that business, made it profitable. I’ve traveled to 15 different countries, lived in three separate major metropolitan cities in the U.S. and of course I am currently living in Colombia. I say this not to brag, but as a tool of comparison, because even though the last 5 years have been great, I am going to make the next 5 even more amazing.
I will use this website to do two primary things, track my personal progress in my goals, and share with you the knowledge I have acquired in every aspect of my life.
I have less than 6 more weeks left in Colombia and have the following Goals for my time here
