Hi there, thanks for stopping by. My name is Jake and I consider myself to be the luckiest guy on the planet.
I’m a 30-something year old Australian residing in Palm Beach on the Gold Coast, one of the most revered holiday destinations in the world, literally living the dream.
I have is an amazing wife, two beautiful children, an overly-energetic dog, great group of friends, a solid career-path and an awesome lifestyle.
It sounds pretty darn good, doesn’t it? It is!
FREEDOM: ESCAPING THE DAILY GRIND
There is this one thing that gets in the road every now and again though, it’s that little thing we know as The Daily Grind. And like many parents and professionals, I know just how easy it is to get caught up in it.
Don’t get me wrong, daily rituals can be a great thing. Consistency is essential in keeping healthy, happy, educated, exercised and entertained.
But I also know from first-hand experience how easy it is to blame the daily grind when things get the better of you. If you’ve ever found yourself saying “If I wasn’t so damn busy I’d be fitter/happier/healthier/wealthier” then you know exactly where I’m coming from.
In a modern household, having opportunities to escape the daily grind is ultimately what constitutes freedom. So I am on a mission to escape the daily grind and find freedom more often, sharing my findings with you along the way. I hope to inspire others with my journey, and empower you to unlock increased freedom too.
WHY I STARTED THE FREEDOM CHASER BLOG?
I initially started The Freedom Chaser to explore alternative sources of income, intending to share the steps of my journey towards financial freedom. It didn’t take me long to realise however that real freedom is about balance across all aspects of life.
I wanted to achieve a better life balance and share my journey so that you could find new ways to make the most of your life too.
On this blog you can follow me in my quest for better balance across four very real aspects of everyday living.
- Life – family, friends, travel, adventure & experiences
- Finances – career, side hustles, investments, savings
- Mind – personal development, education, knowledge & skills
- Body – physical fitness, mental health, general well-being & diet
What I am discovering along the way is that many of these aspects are intrinsically linked.
