Mr. Atypical Life

My journey to financial independence started shortly after college when I realized that life is more important than work. Here at Atypical Life we strive to follow the path less traveled. We believe that everybody deserves to live the life they choose and be free to follow their dreams. Financial independence and self-employment is the direction that makes this possible.
