About

Escaping the 9 to 5 was started to motivate me (and YOU) to choose freedom, to chose the life you want to live versus defaulting to the status quo.

For over seven years I have escaped the 9 to 5, which to me means never being stuck in a job or career I hate, and instead choosing things that fit within my “core four” (the principles that govern my life and act as a decision matrix).

core four - escaping the 9 to 5
What are your core four? What drives you? It’s a difficult question, and everyone’s answer is as unique as your fingerprint.

To some Escaping the 9 to 5 means quitting their traditional job and doing freelance work they love while traveling abroad. Others escape by becoming an entrepreneur and building out a team, this way the business runs and is profitable whether or not the owner is “on” the clock. Some people escape by choosing to be an artist or creative, while still others decide to work for someone else’s company but are deeply passionate about it and motivated for the success of the whole—thus it doesn’t feel like a 9 to 5 at all.

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.

Whatever your personal escape is, this blog is dedicated to providing you with the support, understanding and inspiration to get there. It isn’t easy, sometimes it’s downright painful, and choosing your path versus defaulting to the status quo is often much “harder” work than just remaining a cog in the rat race.

But oh it’s so, so much more fulfilling… Choose freedom, for those who came before you who did not have that opportunity and for those who will come after you–to inspire them to do the same.

Here’s a guide to understanding how to escape the 9 to 5 in your own life, let me know what you think and please reach out if I can ever be helpful!

In freedom,
