Hi I'm Jeremy and I am an entrepreneur who lives a life of freedom and adventure!

in #introduceyourself3 years ago (edited)

Hi Steemit Community! I originally left my home country at the ripe old age of 21 after living a relatively privileged lifestyle in Sydney, Australia. I knew I had to leave and learn about the world so I hopped on a plane to America with no friends, job or place to live.

Here is a brief timeline of my adventures since that day 4 years ago!

  • Moved to LA from Australia by myself with no friends, job, or place to live.
  • Partied with Hollywood celebrities at LA Mansions
  • Became the Fitness Coach for some of your favoruite TV shows producers and Kim Kardashian's hair stylist
  • Spontaneously moved cities to live in a frat house at an Ivy League University (coz why not?)
  • Moved again but this time to Canada with no friends or job (just as scary as the first time)
  • Earned a living by traveling around to schools in the Greater Toronto Area and teaching students (for which I had no prior experience and a semi-fear of public speaking)
  • Met my current girlfriend of 2 years
  • Brought her back to Australia to live at the beach (again with no job or place to live...)
  • Started our own business from which we aimed to make just $1 in 12 months
  • Made a lot more than expected and quit my job (that was nice)
  • Moved back to North America with the girlfriend where we now both work full-time on the business
  • Live in the apartment of our dreams (at least for this point in our lives)

Why I left

I grew up in a weathly area of Sydney near Bondi beach. It was a very protected lifestyle that my family provided and I knew I was sheltered from a lot of things. I wanted to throw myself out into the real world and grow up, so I left shortly after graduating university and headed for LA. The adventure has never stopped since then, and I have developed a passion for adventure and freedom.

What the future holds

We started a mobile business to fund our travels and we're about to buy an old school bus to renovate so we can adventure around Canada and the US for the next couple of years. She has a decent following on Instagram as well as a hand-balancer and she helps people to learn how to do handstands and increase their self-confidence! Check her out TheInversionAddict and say hi!

Why have I joined the Steemit Community?

I love to write and she loves to film so we will be documenting all of our renovations and adventures for years to come and sharing what we have learned along the way. We hope to connect with like-minded people and also share advice for anyone interested in enjoying a similar lifestyle!

I also have a passion for self-development and have a post that I sent out before this one outlining my other reason for having this blog and the other content you are likely to find here.

Thanks for having us 😊

Welcome to Steemit! Great intro and it really is great you branched out from your home and were self aware enough to reconize there was a lot more out there. I can only imgine how scary that must've been. Glad life is turning out great and I look forward to reading more. I'll check out your gf's blog too, followed!

That is a brave introduction @jeremyc! You see, you will find a lot of people who were brave enough to leave their homes at 21 years old. But not too many who left their country. 😉

Thank you! It was definitely scary and I learned a lot :) Hoping to continue learning and sharing with this community as time goes on!

I need to become more adventurous like you!

It never gets un-scary haha but you just gotta bite the bullet and do it! You will never look back :)

Winny out...for now ;)

Hey there! Thanks for the comment and I look forward furthering my contribution to this great community!

First off welcome to steemit @jeremyc. Just by the way you presented your content, you are someone I know who will be successful on steemit. Inspiring to a newbie like myself that is for sure. Not claiming this in any way, but that has been the most professional presentation of a blog I have seen on steemit yet. Kudos! I am really looking forward to following you on your renovations and adventures. Upvoted and Resteemed!

Thank you very much for the kind words @jjohnson78! That means a lot and I am thrilled to be apart of this great and supportive community :)

Wow, that's quite an adventure! Keep us posted on what happens next :)

Thank you! I most definitely will :)

Wow, that's quite the timeline! I love hearing how couples like yourself join forces and combine skills to start a life of adventure :) what kind of mobile business do you have?

Hey there! Thanks so much :) We do marketing for local cafes and restaurants. It's definitely an adjustment working with your partner but we have struck a balance and it's working really well so far haha

I find the biggest thing being able to respect each others business decisions while also coming out of that back into the relationship and being present as each others partner. Not easy but doable!

Welcome to steemit Jeremy! you've got so many interesting and inspiring stories to tell. I hope to read more of your content regularly soon :) and make sure to familiarize yourself with the platform.

Anyway I hope you will like it here .I'd say this is much more better and very productive way to spend your time, compared to the fakebook.

thank you for the warm welcome! I definitely think this is more productive :)
