About This Site

In 2015, I left the corporate world to start my journey as an entrepreneur. At that time, I created a list of goals to achieve in the next five years. The list goes like this:

Before I turn 40

  • Finance: I will have $20k non-wage monthly cash flow.
  • Buy my parents a house.
  • Family: I will have two children.
  • Health: I will be able to dunk.
  • Careers: I will have a book published.
  • Careers: I will have the freedom to choose whether I want to work, where I work and when I want to work.
  • Social impact: I will be a leader of a community.

These are my goals because they are important to me. Your list may look very different, but that is not important in the context of this blog. To reach our personal success, we all need to learn and take action against the principles of success.

I created this site in March 2019, four years after I create this list. I want to hold myself accountable by documenting the journey I walk toward the completion of this list, confront the brutal facts, and leave a track mark for those who are working on their list.

As for June 2019, here is the progress I have made

Before I turn 40

  • Finance: I will have $20k non-wage monthly cash flow.
  • Buy my parents a house.
  • Family: I will have two children.
  • Health: I will be able to dunk.
  • Careers: I will have a book published.
  • Careers: I will have the freedom to choose whether I want to work, where I work and when I want to work.
  • Social impact: I will be a leader of a community.

Why 5x My Income?

Since I moved to Okinawa in 2015, I have achieved the goal of taking charge my own time and be responsible of my income. I created two businesses, and now I get to choose when I work, and where I work.

I am at the point that if I want to check off all the items on the list, I need to 5x my current income. I will also have to learn how to work smart instead of working hard so I can allocate more time for my second child.

I am no trying to teach any one how to 5x income in the next 12 months. I am simply trying to create a journal for future reference. Maybe one day my children can read what dad has done to keep his family and dreams alive.
