THE NEWEST ZERO
NAME: Gordon Lee
LOCATION: Boston, MA
He's A ZERO!
A Little About Yourself:
I will start with saying that I am, in fact, the author and creator of getting2zero. For a guy who hated reading growing up, my entrepreneurial side overcame that hatred and allowed me to write my very own book.
I grew up as a military brat, living in Germany, Japan and eventually the U.S. And for those that didn't grow up in that lifestyle, let me say that it is one that I wouldn't trade for the world. In fact it is because of that lifestyle that I started my journey on getting2zero. I wanted to not only revisit my old stomping grounds, but I wanted to be able to live there again.
I have held corporate jobs during my journey and they have been very beneficial to my growth on both a professional and personal level. It is with getting2zero where I found my true passions. I am excited on what it has brought me so far, but I am even more excited to see where my path takes me going forward.
As I continue my path past Point B, I will be impatiently waiting for you to become a ZERO and share your story for everyone to see.
POINT A - gettin2zero Profile: $55,000 debt cleared in 4 years
POINT B - Dreams and Aspirations:
Beach living and traveling the world. Not only will I be living the dream, but I hope to share it so others can live theirs as well. I look forward to staying above Zero, or even better, I want to be as far from it now that I'm on the other side. If you have read the book, then you know my true aspirations and none are more true than what was said in the last chapter.
Favorite Aspect of getting2zero:
Freedom. The freedom of worry. The freedom of debt. The freedom of 'having to'. getting2zero has allowed me to do what I want to do without being held back by anything.
Biggest Challenge Faced:
Procrastination and lack of dedication. What took me 4 years, could have only taken me a year and a half. It wasn't until the last 9 months where I completely dedicated to the getting2zero mindset and become financially free.
My biggest regret is that I didn't commit soon enough. I would have had two and a half years more of life without worry.
Advice for Fellow Future ZERO's:
Although it may seem difficult or impossible with whatever number you have, the dedication and commitment is well worth it. If you can imagine the feeling you get whenever you completed a homework assignment, or completely cleaned your apartment/house, or the feeling you get after working out, multiply that by a thousand. That is how good it feels. Freedom is a hard feeling to describe, but once you attain freedom, you hope that everyone you know can share in that experience.
A Message From Gordon Lee:
Good job Gordon Lee. You did it! If I could give you a high five, people would call that a clap.
