About

Code, FPV drones, Intermittent Fasting, and UFOs. That’s what I like to write about on this blog. Oh and entrepreneurship and lifestyle businesses. Dig in and let me know what you think!

Some more on that….

At the ten year mark in my career, I became fascinated by the idea of building my own type of business. In 2008, I started a six-year journey when I left a great job to build iPhone apps. This proved to be an amazing, and sometimes very tough, journey where I learned about Internet Marketing, iOS programming, software development, Silicon Valley entrepreneurship.

After my first business ran its course, I continued to be obsessed with lifestyle business. These are businesses that exist to support your lifestyle. Sometimes this means that you are working on something that you are personally passionate about. For example, someone who always wanted to be rock star might give music lessons on the side. Or maybe you are an aspiring author who sells ebooks on Amazon.

Sometimes lifestyle businesses can be very simple, such as an amataur photographer who takes on freelance jobs to pay for cool new equipment. The reason I’m so interested in lifestyle business is because I want what I do to help people gain more personal freedom.

It’s liberating to be able to write your own checks. Even if you are working in a regular 9-5 job, the knowledge that you have the skills to go out and do consulting work or have a side-hustle in place that you can rev up to replace income is very freeing. And you may need to replace your income one day, trust me downsizing happens. I know from personal experience.

That is personal freedom, being confident in your finances and ability to make your own way in the world regardless of what your boss thinks. It’s a journey though, but what a trip! There is nothing quite like building something of value from the ground up that people love.
