I made this transition 2 years ago after working in IT for two years, realizing I hated it, then moving to Malaysia for 10 months till i ran out of money and had to come back home to "get a job" lol. Only I realized I wanted to live life on my terms, doing things I love and using my time and efforts making ME money, not working long hours for someone else making THEM rich. For those who haven't made the transition, I hope this post inspires you to give it some serious thought. For those of us who have made the transition, it's a great and timely reminder as to why we did in the first place. Totally printing this out and sticking on a wall somewhere as a daily reminder. Great post as usual.
