Hello and welcome to my travel and lifestyle blog! I created this blog to share my experiences with you after quitting my six-figure job to start living my passion(s). After 3 years and thousands of amazing adventures, I want you to know one thing: IF I CAN DO IT, SO CAN YOU!
My name is McGowan and I am an entreprenuer currently running several businesses while traveling the world and doing all of the things that most people only dream of. I lived in Cancun, Mexico for the last 8 months (see where I lived in Mexico) and now I live in Southern California. Every day I wake up with the excitement (and sometimes uncertainty) of the ebb and flow of what the day is going to bring and I love it.
The first thing that I want to confess to everyone is, I WAS SCARED SHITLESS! when this journey for freedom began. I had serious delusions of grandeur when it came to my expectations compared to reality. The one thing you should prepare yourself for is FAILURE. You will fail over and over and over again. Be prepared to fail mutiple times and when you think that things are great, be prepared to fail again. Being able to withstand the ups and downs that comes along with being an entrepreneur is one of the most underrated skills one possesses.
Because of the Internet, we have the ability to work from almost anywhere in the world. There are incredible resources available that allows all of us to stop making excuses and take a leap of faith. When I learned that you can't spell excuse without the "U", I was able to overcome my FEAR(S). "U" and ONLY "U" must take responsibility for the decisions you make when it comes to finding your personal happiness.
A few years ago, a friend referred to me as the "Worst Guy Ever" because of my respectful admiration for gorgeous women. I am a single guy who unapologetically admires God's greatest gift..... Women. I have the best of both worlds because I have friends who are both happily and unhappily married/in relationships and I have the pleasure/horror of seeing the best and worse of being a single. As a result of my unique life experiences, I have the ability to offer brutally honest, NON-PROFESSIONAL advice to men and women about not only improving their relationships but understanding the mind of men when it comes to relationships. My first tip to all men is ALWAYS: SHUT THE F'CK UP!
The main purpose of this blog is have fun while providing incite for those who want to live a better life. The best way to improve any aspect of your life, is to improve your own life. Don't know who to ask? F THE EXCUSES, and ask me.
