In the summer of 2012 I found myself unhappy with my life and decided to make a change. I didn't know what kind of change I wanted to make, but I knew that my current life wasn't on a path that was right for me. So, I quit my job and bicycled across the United States. I had no bike touring experience, my bike and equipment were all purchased at Target, and I had barely any money to my name, but I took a risk and had an adventure.
Over the course of two months, I traveled nearly 3,500 miles and had a series of life-changing experiences. These experiences fundamentally altered the path I was on and helped me understand who I was as a person. This book is based on my journal entries about those experiences, but it is also a reflection on how I viewed the world at that time.
In 2015, entrepreneur Isaac Morehouse asked me to contribute to this amazing collection of true stories. Each of the authors involved told their story of how they broke out of the standard method of finding happiness and enjoying life. This book is, above all, a call to flip the burden of proof and try something new. Instead of asking "why", we should be asking "why not"? The risk is often worth the reward and regrets come from inaction instead of too much action.
This book can be purchased via Amazon.
