Living life as if it mattered

If you’re older, retired or soon to be, it’s worth considering your options. You can safely age in place doing the same things, remodeling your house to accommodate your increasingly decrepit body. Or you can take a chance and live in new places doing new things.

Or maybe you’re younger but have had enough of being monetized, building your personal brand, and acquiring marketable skills so you can be a cog in the capitalist machine.

What have you always wanted to do but haven’t? Is there a place you’ve wanted to live but didn’t pursue it? Is it crazy to think you can actually live a different kind of life? What if money (a modest amount) isn’t an issue? Or what if you can make a living from home, wherever that is?

Ok, sure but what makes sense? All very exciting but what doesn’t anyone talk about? How can you make up your mind?
