My biggest thing is not being afraid of the consequences. That's why so many people stay where they are-everybody's so scared.

Don't Fear The ConsequensesInterview Excerpt


My road in life has been direct.
Says his truck-driving "job" is actually more of a lifestyle; he doesn't just put in 8 hours and go home.
Went to school for three-and-a-half years, double-majored in computer science and Spanish.
When he was looking at careers, he realized that none of them actually appealed to him.
For example, he loved studying Spanish, but didn't want to teach or translate legal documents-couldn't "fathom" doing either.
Realized that maybe a 9-to-5 just wasn't for him; knew he loved to travel.
His family was "disappointed" when he dropped out of college to drive trucks, but ultimately said "do what makes you happy."
Has no regrets; says he's found something that he truly loves to do.
Says far too many people work jobs just for the money, stay in positions where, if they won the lottery, they'd immediately quit.
