So you’ve stumbled across my blog… Welcome! I am here to guide you toward financial independence, self-fulfillment, and life optimization. Here I will share every valuable piece of information I have learned and continue to learn. I’ll break down all the technical mumbo-jumbo and present the information in an easy-to-digest and actionable form.
Who Am I?
My name is Cody and I’m a 22-year-old entrepreneur on the path toward financial independence, self-fulfillment, and life optimization. I’m just a normal guy living a slightly more optimized life. Learn more about my hobbies, passions, and motives on my About page!
As of this posting, I am committed to working until July 2019 at my current banking position. My plan is to leave the industry entirely once my one-year contract is up. I will look to my side hustles, and my soon-to-be-acquired real estate portfolio to provide me with the cash flow I need to survive.
At the age of 22, anything is possible. Having time on my side gives me tremendous flexibility in taking on risk. What’s the worst that could happen? I might have to return to a nine-to-five job to regain my footing. As Joel from FI180 says “My worst case scenario is the average person’s everyday scenario”.
I am willing to try almost anything whether it be financial, physical, or mental. I hope that my abundant experiments will uncover interesting and useful lessons that I can share with you. If you’re curious about a topic and would like me to research it further, or perhaps bring in an expert to address the question, feel free to email me at Cody [at] flytofi [dot] com.
My goal is to use this blog as a tool to teach you all of the lessons I have learned and continue to learn. Here I will share all of my relevant decisions, break down my thought processes, and analyze the outcomes.
All of the information I’ll be sharing with you on this site is completely FREE. This isn’t a “Follow this six-week course for $499 and turn your life around” kind of sham. I’m just a genuine guy who wants to make a positive impact on the world and share the amazing things I’ve learned.
Unfortunately, there are mountains of useful information suffocated by consumerism and corporate greed. Modern-day marketing has corrupted our values and beliefs.
Let me ask you:
• What truly makes you happy?
• Why should you work 40+ years in a job that you don’t enjoy? There must be an alternative to the dreaded nine-to-five.
• How can you optimize your life to work smarter not harder?
Follow my journey as I unveil the knowledge I have gained in my quest for these answers and using these same tools and principles, you too can Fly to FI!
