Great lesson. When I was a 21-year old college dropout in Boulder, Colorado I had a burning need to answer for my self ‘What do I actually NEED?’ I moved into my van ‘down by the river’ and started getting rid of stuff. After a year I got rid of the van and backpacked down into South America. Amazing experience that’s grounded me to this day — jettisoning ‘stuff’ is empowering and makes you feel vibrantly alive. As an entrepreneur I’ve cycled back and forth several times — acquiring wealth and stuff then sending it all away to do something more interesting and useful. It is truly liberating.
