I work for myself as a financial advisor uncovering the collusion and conflicts of interest in the retirement plan industry (kind of a cross between an investigative journalist and a crime-fighter) and am a bit of a non-conformist.
I'm very interested in health, fitness, and nutrition. More specifically, I've begun to explore alternative health modalities such as Ayurvedic medicine, Tai Chi, Rolfing, craniosacral therapy, and meditation. I encourage anyone to look up more information in these areas. I'm also the proud owner of a juicer which I highly recommend to anyone. Because of all the time I've spent with health and fitness, I've become more aware and intuitive. This type of growth is significant for me because I've always lived inside my head.
I can also be found often wandering around the farmer's market, doing yoga or Pilates, reading books besides Game of Thrones (I admit I do watch the show and it's quite good), Fifty Shades of Grey, The Hunger Games, The Help, or The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (not to say these aren't good books), learning about something of substance such as nutrition, philosophy, history, or economics, or just hanging out with friends. And of course I don't want to leave out fantasy football which I confess tends to distract me from work.
I connect most with people who have passion and depth. People who truly have passion have likely given serious thought to a particular issue or idea and will dedicate significant time and energy to a personal project that requires taking part in activities that run counter to their core personality in order to achieve a more meaningful goal of discovering their true selves. These kinds of people are rare.
