If all you want is to find which money-making, saving and investing methods I used to go from “total loss” to “total boss”, check out my RECOMMENDATIONS page.
I’m Alex Simon. My story is simple.
In my 30s, I was set: I had a family, a house, a business, and was making great money.
Then, at 40, I had lost everything: wife, house, business, all my money. I was at “zero”. Bankrupt.
The why and how are irrelevant. But let’s say that the economic recession didn’t help matters.
Being completely broke at 40 sucks. Everything you worked for all your life is gone. You need to start over. Starting over at middle age is hard. No one wants to hire you. And no one cares about your tough luck.
The only thing to do is take what you learned from your misfortune, roll up your sleeves and go to work – for yourself.
Fast forward to my mid-40s: new wife, new businesses (yes, multiple) and lots of money.
And you read that right. This was on the side from my full-time job.
Between all our sources of income – multiple businesses, consulting, speaking, blogging, investing – Stephanie and I are doing nearly $40,000/month, working from home!
We are our own bosses. We make the rules. We make our schedule. We work when we want.
We travel to our favorite foreign countries a few times a year and still have time pursue our hobbies.
Europe? Check. South America? Check. Asia? Check. Where to next?
In my spare time – despite all the businesses I’m involved in – I still have time to train for triathlons. That’s 3 to 4 hours a day I spend swimming, running or cycling.
And, when I’m not doing triathlons, I’m playing tennis with my childhood heroes.
Yes, life is finally epic.
Being free is epic.
This website is my way of sharing what I did to turn my life around and go from “zero” to “epic”.
It is not a place for financial theory. It’s all practice. The things I actually did to make great money and live a life of complete freedom.
If you can learn something on here that will help you create your own version of an “epic life”, awesome!
Lastly, I am not a financial guru.
I’m just a guy who lost it all and then used the lessons I learned to build a life that’s better than I ever could have imagined.
If you’re ready to stop being average and want to start living the life you want and deserve, welcome!
