In 2011 I was working full time as a commodities trader, while trading stocks in the morning for 30 minutes before going to my “real” job. The previous 5 years I had been supporting myself solely from trading stocks. I thought I wanted a new challenge, and that trading commodities could be a worthy challenge. Although it was an interesting field, I ultimately didn’t enjoy what I was doing for nine hours a day. The best part of my work day was the 30 minutes from 7:00-7:30 while I was trading stocks. I decided to stop doing something I didn’t enjoy doing, and start a new challenge. This new challenge came in the form of moving to Colombia to trade stocks, learn Spanish, take dance lessons, cycle, and immerse myself in a new culture. I made the decision to move to Colombia in August of 2011, and carried out this decision in October of 2011. I flew into Medellin on October 13th, the day before my 30th birthday. Since arriving I have been soaking up life and all that it has to offer here in Colombia. I love my life, and refuse to live any other way. I’m a true believer that if you aren’t happy doing what you’re doing, you need to find a way to be doing something else. Life’s too short to do something that doesn’t excite you.
