My self-summary
This is a fun game. How do I win?

I want to be wanted... not for my success, my money, or where I live, but for who I am. I want to do the same for someone.

I'm not sure about marriage. I want a best friend and I do want a commited relationship (although I've just stopped caring if it will ever happen) It seems as if marriage is severly undervalued and so is commitment.

I'm not impressed by fancy degrees, money, pretentious behavior or stuff. I'm impressed by humility, learning, integrity, character, feistiness, fun, creativity, energy, generosity, kindness, emotional health/intelligence, and how you treat the people who aren't like you.
What I’m doing with my life
I work hard toward minimalism and the happiness that follows. I've no desire for material positions; Give me experiences - because I can take them with me where ever I go.

On vacation: i'd rather roll with the locals than act like a tourist. Learn the language, the culture, experience the foods and things they enjoy. Allow them to help me love their land and culture the way they do.

I keep busy building several empires. 1) My seminar company. 2) My family concrete company 3) Ad Sales for the #1 golf show on iHeartRadio, a travel show, and a distillary/winery/brewery show 4) Food Industry News (magazine for restaurant owners in Chicago) [Serious perks] 5) Coaching politians & business owners

I broke out from the 9-5 and have more time and money this way; but like I said, I care more about experiences than materialism. Own every second and heartbeat this world can give you!

I have a certain disregard for rules
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What brought people to the place they are at...

Why so many people have unreasonable expectations of themselves and others?

Why people are afraid?

What people really want?

What does it mean to have your sh** together? This is an unreasonable question based on cultural perspective and someones unmatched agenda.

On a plane or at a rooftop bar

When it comes to women; the girls I am most attracted to are described like this... Typically shorter (5'4 & under) - not always, but fiesty and somewhat witty. There is a humility there, open minded, they are good at challenging me, they love to encourage, are fun, they are movers/doers and love to smile. They might not have all those qualities, but a good handful with trying to do the others is great in my book.
The two of us
