There aren’t many times in life where you get to make a decision as to what to do next. While growing up, we always have our parents to make those decisions for us, like if we’ll move or where we’ll live. If we take the college route, we start to experience some freedom when we decide which college we’ll go to or figure out which college will accept us. Then it’s easy, we just move to that college town.
Even after college, we’re usually directed where to move by our new employer. For me, that meant I was moving to Dallas because that’s where I accepted my first job. Sure, I could’ve moved somewhere and tried to find a job, but this way worked out well so I went with it.
After my wife and I got married, we decided to move to a city where she could get a job since I can work from anywhere that had an airport. She had job offers in Spokane, Washington and New Orleans. We chose New Orleans. Then earlier this year we decided to embark on adventure of a lifetime when we traveled the world for nine months.
