Hello, my name is Amber.

I'm a nature lover, international traveler, admirer of languages, and food fanatic.  For a living, I'm a business owner and business consultant. I have a passion for life and want to help others fall in love with their lives.  One of the many reasons that I've started this blog was to share my journey from corporate employment to becoming a business owner.  I want to see which leads me to Financial Independence (FI) faster. My bet is on business ownership. What do you think? I've made many mistakes along the way as well as good decisions that helped my future self.  I want to share what I've learned over the years to inspire others to design their own path to success in their lives and finances. This means you have to proactively go Against the Grain of the societal norm.

I hope you find my stories helpful and inspiring, and that together we can make our lives what we direct them to be.
