What I'm Thankful for This Holiday Season

What I'm Thankful for This Holiday Season

Freedom to control my time is the greatest gift this year.

With the holiday season beginning and the year coming to a close soon, I’m reminded more than ever of just how much I have to be thankful for. 

The past year has been one of many milestones, from leaving my corporate job at the end of 2021 to launching First Generation Capital Partners in April. 

I believe that practicing gratitude is an important part of having the healthy mindset that’s needed to experience true financial freedom. Because of that, I wanted to use this blog post to reflect on all the things I have to be grateful for, in hopes of inspiring you to do the same.  

The Freedom to Control My Time

I stayed at my corporate job even after I didn’t need to financially, because I genuinely enjoyed the work. When I decided to leave, it was so that I could have more control over my schedule, allowing me to prioritize the things that mattered most to me. 

In the year since, I’ve been able to spend more time than ever playing video games with my kids, spending quality time with my wife, and investing in all the people I love. 

I’ve had the opportunity to travel more than ever before this year, taking trips at the end of each quarter and spending six weeks in the States with my family over the summer.

These experiences have not only enriched my life and the life of my family, but they’ve also informed my perspective in new ways. I’m inspired to work harder to make this life a reality for others who feel trapped by the constraints of a traditional 9-5. 

The Opportunity to Help Others Build Their Dream Lives

I spent so many years knowing that I should invest, but feeling afraid to start taking action. And my conversations with other Accredited Investors from similar backgrounds has shown me that I wasn’t alone in this fear. 

So when I finally did start investing — and started seeing the ways that it allowed me to not only build wealth, but also build the life I dreamed of — I knew I wanted to help others do the same.

Between hosting The Going Long Podcast and starting FGCP™, I’ve been able to make that dream a reality. I’m so grateful for every person who’s trusted me enough to invest with us, and I’m proud of the returns our direct investments have been able to deliver.
