    I’m growing my business and I am looking at the long term. I’m 22 and all of my friends are working cruddy jobs, going to school, or both.

    I’m looking for other business owners and entrepreneurs around my age who want to do something with their newfound freedom and income.

    I want to try out creating a brand, traveling and doing badass stuff and creating content around it with other people with similar mindsets and interests as me.

    I’ve got no real idea how it would actually work. I just do stuff right when I think of it and figure it out as I go along.

    A little about me:

    I live 30 minutes south of Seattle and own a lawn care company that’s about to be a year old. It’s doing pretty well and it looks like we could be hitting over 100k in revenue. If I do the work then it’s all in my pocket. If my employees do everything it’ll be 50k or so in my pocket.

    My friends are busy, not as risk tolerant, and spend their time differently than I like to. I did climb Mt. Rainier with one of my friends a couple years ago but nothing since then.

    I like risk, speed, and somewhat dangerous things.

    My idea is that I’m not the only guy on here in his 20’s that is tired of being around people with 9-5’s that think “fun” is going to a concert and getting drunk every Friday. My idea of fun is skydiving, homemade fireworks, getting launched into a lake on an inner tube attached to a rope wrapped around a car rim that winds it up and launches you at 50mph, cliff jumping, and stuff like that.

    What I’m hoping will happen:

    I hope some people who are on the same page will say “hell yeah bro that sounds awesome” and we can exchange information. From there, it would make sense to start small and just meetup and go from there.

    Ideally it would turn into a brand where there’s a group of us traveling around and doing cool stuff, filming it and enjoying life. I get bored so easily and I’ve been starting businesses, volunteering, all because I feel like I’m suffocating if I’m not always moving forward. I don’t even like volunteering and I’ve got no passion for those side businesses. I’d much rather just do cool stuff with other entrepreneurs.

    It probably sounds like a crazy dream but I think it could be a very practical way to enjoy the time and freedom that comes along with growing a business.

    I don’t expect it to happen overnight. I’m in no rush. This is just something I’d like to do for fun and thoroughly enjoy my 20’s WHILE growing a business that’ll feed me for the rest of my life. It could turn into something as soon as next weekend, or not until later this year. I’m not going to hurry anything. I just wanted to bounce the idea off of some of you and see if anyone would want to talk about it more. Is it something you’ve thought about too?
