What I cherish the most are having new experiences. Sure there are physical things that I love; film equipment, musical instruments, computers, cars – but in general, I would rather have some sort of new experience than go out and buy shit to put on a shelf. That’s just me. When I have new experiences, I am usually growing, healing and / or learning as a result. After you have a new experience, at some point you gain some understanding of that particular experience. Once you have learned what you needed to learn – wisdom is born. That is what you take with you when you die, not a couch.
When we used to run our dog walking business, we made a lot of money, had a nice apartment, but quite literally – we were doing the same shit everyday. Nothing new was happening. What I really learned is that it is important to be happy first, then let the money follow. There ain’t nothing wrong with making a lot of money. Hell, I love it, but if it is doing something I’m not really passionate about – fuck it. Don’t get me wrong, I love animals and love being a businessman, but I’m more passionate about teaching, art and performing.
I love money. I want to make a lot of it – haha, who doesn’t. I love things. We live in a physical world after all… but again – I always lean towards having new experiences. Honestly though, when I make less money that is usually when I am the happiest. If I can pay my bills and have a little extra to go explore – then rock on. I cherish time so much. I love being able to have time to write, practice vocals or meditate. Working for other people and working a traditional 40 hour + work week is my personal hell. It doesn’t make any sense to me. I know people will hate me for saying that, but its true. I may not have a college degree or speak all fancy, but I am pretty fucking smart. I know how to create from nothing. I know how to survive. I know how to create my own jobs. I learn quickly and I know how to research and find what I need.
What I always have to remind myself as an entrepreneur is that I can have numerous streams of revenue. I do psychic readings, teach english online and edit youtube videos. It took me a long time to figure out that I didn’t HAVE to work for other people. My first job being self employed was walking dogs in Chicago. That blew my mind. That experience is really what led me to starting our own business. The dog walking business is what led us to traveling and teaching. I hear it so often, people think certain things are impossible or that they can’t do it because they will upset someone. Fuck that. This is your life. Go fucking live it because I doubt you want to feel that regret in the final months of your life. People speak of that phrase “YOLO” or you only live once. I don’t really believe that because I believe in reincarnation, but I do like the idea behind YOLO. Go out there make this the best fucking life that you can.
