In the spring of 2015, I was a young Unbounder whose life consisted of working my little bank teller job, taking CLEP tests, and spending what little free time I had with my family.

“The thinking that got you here won’t get you there.” - Benjamin Hardy As a former self-taught homeschooler, an Unbounder, and now, a self-employed realtor and aspiring author, I know what it means to go it alone.

It will kickstart your business, fuel the initial stages of your creative project, and give you the courage to make the leap into the risky unknown, [...]
