I am just a regular guy, coming from a small European country. Compared to my friends, I made it. I hated working in office in the past. All that stress, working from 8 am to 4 pm, excluding commute to work, I did not have any fun in my life. And I were sitting in the office on a lousy chair, calling customers over the phone and asking myself, is this really how my life should look like?
So I said to myself, fuck this, life is short, I am not wasting my life to work for some fat, greedy boss and then being berated after if my work was not good enough. Fuck that.
I started building one site, added the second one, started making money soon. And I quit the job. The manager accepted my refusal to work there anymore.
To tell you the truth, I was so bored calling people and offering insurance all day long. I just waited till the fat coworker had to go away so I could Skype with my friends etc. The moral in that company was really low. I even started downloading torrents from my business laptop and the system admin of the company soon found out. So I put my laptop under password so they could not find out what I was downloading. I claimed I did not download anything.
But the connection was really fast, who could refuse.
So in short, my online business soon took off, and I went travelling all over the world. Still today I am traveling and working online. It is getting better, doing less work for better money.
If I am honest, I work approximately 1 - 2 hours per day. I charge somewhere around 50 - 100 USD per hour so I don't have to put a lot of hours in my work. But I am online most of the day, if I am not lying on the beach.
Downloading stuff, movies, chatting with friends, just browsing the web etc. Yes movies are my big thing. I have to watch all the latest movies of course.
I am not sure if traveling is your thing, but it is definitely the best thing that ever happened to me.
I love it. When I get bored of one place, I just move to another city, get new girlfriend and enjoy. Yes girls get boring so I switch a lot.
Who can blame me. I am 37 yo still have my game and am getting richer and richer each day.
