Jumping Off The Hamster Wheel

Diary / Saturday, October 28th, 2017

It’s been three years since I’ve been talking about quitting my job and traveling around the world. But I’m still here; working at the same company, doing the same thing for almost ten years.

People say money is necessary and I need to save when I can. They say I should stick around for a couple more years so I can truly enjoy my time off without worrying about finance. But I’m afraid that’s how people end up stuck in the Hamster Wheel.

I decided to give myself just four more months to wind down my life in Baltimore, practice living under $1,000 a month, and finally quit my job. That means I have to get rid of my iPhone, cancel my internet, cook at home and probably much more.

This blog is my diary for me to look back to and keep reminding myself of what I want. But I’m also hoping it’ll encourage others to break the chain and pursue their dreams. Please join me on my journey and share yours here if you’re heading my way. Cheers!

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    1. Hi Jan,

      Thank you for your message. I don’t have a newsletter subscription feature yet but I should look into it! Honestly, I didn’t think anyone would be interested in subscribing my blog yet, given that I only have two posts! 🙂 Your website looks great. It has tons of educational posts about investing and your explanations are easy to follow. 👍🏻 This blog is more like my diary, so I haven’t put much effort into promoting it. However, I have another blog that’s for business and I can talk to you more about what I did with that. I’ll send you a message with more details.

      Good luck with your new venture and Happy New Year!
