Do what you LOVE!

Stop following the path of debt slavery which chains you to a mortgage and living your life paycheck to paycheck just to make the bills for the month, and STILL have NOTHING left over for you and your family to enjoy life with.


Live Small, Get Rid of Your Debt

Walk away from a life of servitude, and do what you love to do… For a few 10’s of thousands of dollars you can be living on your own land, in your own cabin, and doing your own thing.

What kind of legacy do we want to leave our children? Do we really want to teach them that we MUST WORK OUR LIVES FOR SOMEONE ELSE?

“We must do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory, he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.”

Let that sink in a second.

You have been programmed from a young age to believe you must have a JOB to make a living. Well, that’s not true. You need to WORK, but you don’t need a job, in the sense that you are working for someone else for the rest of your life, or a large portion of it. When you spend 30-50 years of your life at a job, then you spent 33% of that entire time doing something for someone else rather than for your family. You might think you’re “making a living” and technically you are. But what people fail to realize until it’s too late, is the idea of a job and earning a living relies on you working for and making money for your boss, not you. If you wanted to take time for yourself and your family you risk losing your job. If you have an opportunity to take your family on a trip somewhere can you just drop you job and go? No.

This is NOT About Responsibility

No one is saying you should shirk your duties as a provider for your family. Yes, you have bills. So does everyone. But that’s the point.

We’re programmed from a young age to believe that we must adhere to this idea of civilization that the majority of civilization deems “normal” when in fact it’s really the furthest thing from normal that you can get.

Work, and work hard, but it shouldn’t be a JOB. It should be doing something you LOVE doing. Go back to school. Learn a new skill

Your JOB is Your Family!

Your job is not your boss. Your job is to work hard (and SMART) to provide a good life for your family and yourself. To raise your children the way you see fit, and not the way the system says you should raise your family. Family is the most important thing on the face of the planet. It is our purpose. That and helping others. We have a duty to our families and humanity to provide for our families and to help other human beings.


  1. Amen!!! I am currently working towards that very same goal – I am studying about solar, and not being reliant but more self reliant. Knowledge is power – you just have to invest in the time to know what to do. Not do the same stuff over and over and hate it. Doing what you love and getting paid for it is a “saving” grace because when we work at things we hate we are slowly killing our spirit inside and end up old before our time. Also DO NOT LET WELL MEANING PEOPLE TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE CRAZY! Be careful of who you tell your dreams to. People will create doubt in your heart and cause you to quit before you even start. Blessings to all of you who are going in this direction – we can be free! Just see it inside your mind, feel it in your heart and say it to yourself because if you don’t there may not be anyone else who will.
