Episode #6: When You Get Creative, Anything is Possible

How Jeff Wilson used his diverse set of skills to Quit Working.

Many people think they are stuck in a full-time job or running a small business because they don’t have any other option. They might say, “Yeah, I’d like to do something different, but <whatever I do for a living> is all I can make money with.” That thinking will keep you trapped in that 9-5 world forever.

Jeff Wilson used his diverse set of skills to Quit Working

My guest on this episode of the How to Quit Working Show is Jeff Wilson, an HGTV Host and Green Living enthusiast. Not only that, he is a huge LIFESTYLE SNOB! Jeff did not pick one skill or one type of expertise and monetize it, he blended several of his skills, passions and areas of expertise together to create a business and a life that are completely inextricable.

Jeff lives in his ideal house, in his ideal climate, in his ideal region with his wife and kids and lives a life that he loves and is structured around what HE WANTS. His wife wants the same things and they are raising their kids to put the lifestyle first and money second.

They pack up a small RV each summer and head to their favorite destinations, spending summers at the beach and enjoying time with the kids.

On this episode, Jeff is going to let us in on the mindset changes that will allow you to live the amazing lifestyle that he enjoys with his family. He also shares a classic book he read (from way before Tim Ferris was born) that encouraged him to take his life in this direction.

Jeff is also going to share with us:

  • The traumatic experience his father went through that convinced him to never work for someone else.
  • How he has made his life completely recession-proof.
  • The completely unique minset he has developed that allows him to live the amazing life he does.
