If this is your first rodeo and you don’t know what we’re all about, here’s the elevator version:
Paid to Exist is about eliminating the separation between what you get paid to do and what you love, so you can contribute to your world and live a life of freedom.
We’re here to help you create a life you’d never want to change and cultivate a path you’d never want to stop walking.
We are in your corner and here to help you along your journey.
We handpicked some of our best resources and packed this page with inspiring stories from the real world and actionable how to guides.
You can use it to start shaping your escape plan today.
Enjoy it, and welcome to the PTE (Paid to Exist) family, Adventurer!
