That's the goal. Well, sort of. It's really more like: create something of value, lend to government, retire.. but "bureaucrat to billionaire" sounds way cooler.

About me: Grew up in south Jersey, my heart is in Colorado, currently an accountant for the Air Force and (finally) finishing my degree in economics at the University of Texas at San Antonio.

I read (listened to) both of MJ's books a couple months ago while surrounded by the oppressive and depressive walls of my cubicle, filling in and color coding Excel cells as a cog in the wheels of the biggest bureaucracy in the world: the US DoD. I've always had an entrepreneur's voice in my head, having owned and operated a live music venue at the tender age of 18 (albeit under the government's radar). Yet, 17 years later, here I sit in my orange fabric lined, florescent lit, cage trading away precious minutes of my life for pieces of paper. Fastlane and Unscripted turned that voice into a roar that I can no longer ignore.

I don't own patents and my ideas are still in the works, so I'm not quite comfortable discussing them yet. But soon. Very soon.

As alluring as the dream of a life of leisure and freedom may be, my real inspiration is my mother. No savings, no education, body failing, nothing in Social Security and owes more on her house now than when she bought it in '89. My sisters couldn't give less of a shit, so it's an obligation I bear, welcome, and will deliver on.

Glad to be here. Cheers.

Desert of Desertion
As someone who spent multiple years at Booz Allen I PAINFULLY resonate with your state. There has to be a separation of identity between where you work and who you are. You cannot see yourself as a bureaucrat. You must begin to understand that you are one of the few awoken people among a sea of deadbeat, lifeless drones who only care about their little tax-funded paycheck.

Where did you grow up in South Jersey? That's where I'm from.
