The Journey

This is a journal of my attempt to go from stuck in a 9-5 job to complete career freedom in 18 months. I will be using 3 books as my main inspiration.

25 Principles of Success – Jack Canfield

Refuse to Choose – Barbara Sher

Be a Free Range Human – Marianne Cantwell

These 3 authors have each inspired me to reach for something that right now feels completely out of the realm of possibility but which I desperately want. This blog will be sharing how I put into practice the techniques and tools these authors explain to create the life I’ve always wanted.

I want to be able to have an idea and start work on it without the restraints of a 9-5 job. I want to have the financial freedom to give some kid from the Make a Wish foundation the time of their life.  I want to be able to stop sitting on my sofa in the evenings scratching out various sums on the back of an envelope, working out how long it will take to save to buy a house or pay for a holiday. I want to be excited on a Sunday night at the prospect of what may be in store on Monday.

The journey starts now. 22nd May 2017. No matter what my circumstances are I will be posting on 22nd November 2018 to let you know how far I’ve got.

    Good on you for taking the plunge! How did you find the other two books (Sher and Canfield)… any good?


    1. Sher’s book is great, she gives you some good ideas on how to incorporate everything you enjoy and not to feel guilty for constantly starting and failing to finish new projects. Canfield’s book has some good tips, the best of which I’ll be talking about in my next blog post.
