In 2018, we broke free of the 9-to-5 trap.
We took the leap, quitting our 9-to-5 jobs to travel the world full time.
How did we do it? We discovered the essence of time freedom: realizing that life’s real luxury is the freedom to spend our days as we choose.
Money may come and go, but time can never be reclaimed.
How We Broke Free of the 9-to-5 Trap
Our story is NOT about saving money then quitting our jobs to gallivant around.
And it’s not about some get-rich-quick scheme.
It’s about a significant lifestyle change.
To achieve our dream of time freedom, in 2016 we started online businesses that we could do from anywhere. But none of the online businesses we started on our own gave us true time freedom. Our online businesses were either huge time-sucks or didn’t generate much income. Sometimes both!
Then we took an online business challenge. And that changed everything.
We paid $7 to learn how to build an online business that actually generates serious income while only working on it a few hours a day.
In short, we learned how to work for ourselves online and make money by putting other sellers’ products in front of buyers who already want that item or service.
We didn’t have a lot of social media followers. We didn’t even have a TikTok account!
Didn’t have any technical or even marketing skills. But the course provided everything we needed.
And the best thing about the challenge is that in 15 days it helps you figure out whether affiliate marketing is right for you.
After taking the challenge we truly started to feel not just financial freedom but time freedom.
It isn’t a path to instant riches. Yes, we still work, typically putting in 2 to 4 hours a day. But crucially, we decide when, where, and how we work.
And this one simple thing let us escape from the 9-to-5 trap!
You can too.
