Let’s Build Something Beautiful Together

Paid to Exist: Unschool

For much of my life, I rebelled against things. I thought the “system” was my enemy and I wanted to deconstruct everything.

And I felt like society was “against me.”

So for much of my teenage and adult life, I sought to break things down. I did whatever I could to discredit the establishment. I looked for holes and pointed them out. I saw the faults and the hypocrisy and I thought, “Why are so many people following these fakes?”

I rejected pretty much everything.

But the truth is, I started to feel pretty lonely. Even though I hung out with other “nonconformists,” I still felt like I was on my own.

Then I realized that I had rebelled against pretty much everything. And I was left alone.

I isolated myself because I thought everything was fake. It turns out that what I was really doing was rebelling against myself.

After spending my whole life breaking things down, I realized that I overlooked building something beautiful. After a life of being against everything, I forgot to think about what I was for.

I used to spend a lot of time thinking about everything I wanted to quit (my day job at the top of the list). I thought about all the things I wanted to “drop out” from: society’s rules, the life template, etc.

Well, while I was busy trying so hard not to sell out, I had really souled out. I was so consumed with not being down with that, that I wasn’t down with anything.

I’ll tell you right now: that’s a pretty shitty place to be. When you spend all your time critiquing, judging, and deconstructing, you’re not living. You’ve created a vacuum where you can live with the illusion that you’re “safe” from all of society’s “falseness.”

Well intentioned deconstruction turns into pretentious rejection.

The reason I’m telling you all this stuff

I think a lot of people get stuck on this path. We realize that there are problems, and we realize that some things should be questioned and broken down.

But it’s too easy to spend your whole life “breaking things down” without building anything up.

Because that’s the whole point isn’t it? Otherwise everything you’ve dropped out of is in vain.

I’ve spent the past year really thinking about this. I thought I wanted to quit my job to escape. But what I really wanted was to create something worth living for.

I think that I’ve done that here.

I want to help you create something beautiful

Next week, I’ll be launching a program that is designed specifically to help you not just “drop out” of mind-renting, but “opt-in” to living on purpose, and getting paid to do what you love.

I know how frustrating it can be to not be where you want to be. You want something different, but you’re not sure what that is yet. You might have an idea, but it’s not yet clear.

I can help you get clear about the direction you want to head.

I also know how difficult it can be when you know where you want to go, but you’re just not sure how to get there. You know where you want to be, you’re just not sure what steps to take. You don’t have a plan. And if you do, you’re not sure that it will work.

I can help you nail down the exact steps you need to take, AND help you create a plan that will make it inevitable you succeed.

Because it’s not just about breaking things down. It’s about building something up. Building something that you can live for. Something you can be excited to wake up to. Something that you know will make a difference, and make you feel fulfilled.

That’s what I want to help you with. Creating a living doing something that you’re passionate about, you’re gifted at, and that makes a difference in the world.

I hope you’ll join me this Tuesday when we’ll start working side-by-side to make this happen for you. I have to be honest with you though… I’m limiting this course to only 50 highly motivated individuals so that I can devote as much time as possible to everyone. A lot of people have already told me how excited they are about this, so it’s likely the spots will fill up quick.

To make sure you reserve a spot, and if this sounds like something you might benefit from…
