That's what he told me. And then I asked him what he did for a living.
He said "I paint houses in Canada. 2 months a year." And the rest of the time he just travels. He's been doing this for the past 16 years.
He has his own company where he does all the work and paints those houses during those two months.
He also has a house in the Philippines. He rents it for $100 a month.
He doesn't make a lot of money. He said he doesn't even have to pay taxes in Canada. He gets everything back. Because he doesn't pass the tax free limit in Canada. I think he might make around $15,000 a year.
Not a lot. For Canada. But enough to live the life he wants to live. Instead of having to live the life others expect him to live.
And I think that's what it's all about.
It's about working towards creating the life you want to live. Whatever that might look like.
And no matter how different that life might look like compared to your peers.
As long as it's your life you're trying to live, as long as you're working towards it, then that's totally fine.
Whether you work 2 months a year or 20 hours a day...
