About Clark Vandeventer
We’re told to go to school, get a great job with the best salary possible, and then to build our lives accordingly. But, what if we could turn this approach around?
What if we designed our lives first and then went out and earned to support living the way we truly wanted? Clark Vandeventer and his family have done just that. If you’ve ever been curious about becoming location-independent, this is the episode for you!
At 26, Clark had a stable job making a great income, but he knew the trajectory he was on was not taking him where he wanted to go. He quit his job and from there, has experienced some dramatic ups and downs – including running for Congress and moving his family into his in-laws' garage!
But, at this point, he and his family have managed to design their lives around what truly matters to them. They've developed a system for generating income from diverse sources and have found a way to live on their own terms.
Clark is the author of the book, Unworking: Exit the Rat Race, Live Like a Millionaire, and Be Happy Now.
