Within seven long years after college, William Lee switched careers three times, wiped his slate clean, and took massive pay cuts all in the pursuit of a lifestyle which at the time, was only a dream.
He had had three immediate goals:
1) be my own boss
2) work from home
>3) be a stay at home dad (I’m still childless)
There was a fourth goal which he shared with others but did not believe in it at the time. That goal was to live in different countries weeks to months at a time.
In 2007, he launched an online e-commerce business that sold nutritional products. This was his fourth start-up and this time, he had too much pride to fail again. Facing 10k in debt just 2 months into the launch, he secured a loan from his parents and had the fire to grow even hotter. That’s when things clicked and he matured from delinquent wannabe entrepreneur to growing small business owner.
It’s been several years since taking that first step with a one way ticket to Vancouver, BC. William spent time in many places around the US and abroad and completed a 14 month trip in Costa Rica. Today, he is heading to Bali, Indonesia and plans to continue his way around the world, sharing what he had learned and giving to others a different way to look at life.
