Disrupting the Dogma
Early on we are all taught that everyone’s life follows the same story-line – Get good grades in school, Get into a great college, Land that big corporate job, and Ride out that career into your sunny, beach-life retirement. There you’ll reap all the benefits from your countless hours spent sitting in your cubicle, watching the clock tick each day. Waiting for your few precious hours of freedom before you wake up and do it all again.
Now I’m not here to tell you that good grades, a college degree, or getting a corporate job is the root of all evil. I’ve done all those things and still working a corporate job RIGHT NOW. I’m simply here to tell you that it is not the only option.
Nine-Five to Freedom is about learning to build your own businesses online. It’s about cutting off the direct link between your time and money. Learning how to live life to the fullest while you’re still young and able to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
So, Who is Nick?
Simply put, my name is Nicholas Nalbach. I’m in my mid-twenties working in Project Management for a construction company. I travel to a new project each year, so I am usually never in the same place for more than a few months at a time. It is very exciting getting to experience places I never would’ve thought to visit, but I am putting in many long hours each week. And don’t get me wrong, I like what I do, I am just looking for a way to make my cash flow more passive.
My Personal Life
Without really knowing what line of work I wanted to get into, I graduated with a degree in Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin – Stout. Like most people, I went into it knowing that a college degree is something I should pursue, without a real agenda or end goal in mind. I just recently married my best friend and beautiful wife, Emily! We travel together with our two Shiba Inus, Tulah and Kaya. We are very adventurous people, so living in new places has never really been an issue for us. Most of the time we get to explore the many hiking trails, kayak at the various lakes, and try out every brewery we can possibly find! – p.s. We are always looking for recommendations on new places to try!
– And if you couldn’t tell, we really like beer.
What About Passive Income?
And where Nine-Five to Freedom comes into play?
To be honest, it all started with a book that I read, The Millionaire Fastlane: Crack the Code to Wealth and Live Rich for a Lifetime! by MJ DeMarco. This book completely changed the way I thought about my career and making money. If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend it! Reading this book gave me a whole new perspective on what is possible for everyone, including you and me.
From there, I started putting a lot of thought into What is Passive Income? I’ve always thought of it as unfathomable, and only the lucky few could manage to get there, but it’s not! As I continued to dig into it more, I heard countless testimonials of people who were making passive income a reality for themselves. I heard enough stories on Pat Flynn’s Smart Passive Income Podcast (also highly recommend) to convince me that passive income is possible for anybody.
As much as I enjoy traveling around and seeing new places, I can’t do this forever, and I don’t feel that raising a family on the road is the best thing for us. This is why I’m getting into passive income now. For me, it’s not about being the next Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos. This is more about having the freedom to live my life and spend my valuable time with the people I love and care about.
And I Want The Same For You…
I want to help you achieve the very thing that I am working towards. That’s what Nine-Five to Freedom is all about. I am not an expert by any means, and I may not always have the answers at first. However, I am willing to put in the work it takes to get myself, and you, there. Are you!?
