I'm not the sort of person to share too much personal information on the internet but I think this could end up being an interesting topic of discussion:
For the last couple of years I've been dreaming about completely changing my life. I'm sick of office politics, the arse licking, the bullshit, the egos and the general mundane way of life I've been living.
Between 2006-2013 I worked for an out-sourcing company closely connected with a well known Multinational networking and hardware manufacturer, over these 7 years I went from customer service agent to Team Leader with a few different roles in between, to achieve that I was good at my job but I also did my fare share of kissing arse. I learned to use professional business lingo and could talk shit for days on conference calls to colleagues from all over the globe and over the years felt my soul slowly slipping away.
In 2013 I said **** it, resigned on a whim and moved to Ireland to work for a small company in a much more mundane yet morally rewarding job, however my goal in life is to achieve these things:
• Be 100% happy 24/7-365
• Have children
• Live most of the year in a warm climate
• Live most of the year doing something i truly enjoy
• Earn money to live, not live to earn money
Me and my fiancee now have enough money saved together to place a deposit on a property, my Mum would love nothing more than for me to own my own house, but for me to buy a house ties me to a location and bounds me to debt I'm just not interested in having.
This is what I want to do: Buy a small plot of land in a country with a warm climate, I don't really care where it is, plant olive trees, cold press the olives when they fruit, bottle and sell it in trendy upmarket location such as Camden with a label saying organic, family-owned, cold pressed <insert location> Olive Oil £25 a bottle.
Wish me luck, I'm currently starting preliminary checks on locations, hopefully in 2 years time I'll be posting from my Olive ranch!
