Thoughts on Typical
You could live a typical life or you could live the life that works best for you. By typical I mean working at a job you hate and before you know it, it's too late to try anything new.
I quit the typical life at age 25 to become a full-time photographer and failed a bunch of times up until now. And will most likely fail a bunch more in the future. Failing is kinda fun actually because it leads to great rewards later down the road that make failing all worthwhile.
But with all that being said, you only live one life so why waste it living a typical one when you have the option to live the life you want. Remember money is only a number and anyone can make money anytime if they put their focus to it. Time on the other hand is extremely valuable. Once it's gone, you can't get it back.
