Who is Jack?

My name is Jack, I am a 41 year old father, and in a committed relationship with three special women. I had a fairly short but traditional and happy IT career my 20’s, then quit and have started 6 businesses, failed at 3 of them, and now live as as a western expat in Bangkok, Thailand.

I don’t really follow life’s rules, which BRINGS significant pride and joy, yet PARADOXICALLY IS A source of intense self-doubt, stress, and anxiety.

My journey of self discovery has led me down some strange pathways and by writing this out, I want to share many of the strategies I’ve developed to keep myself healthy and in perpetual growth.

A little disclaimer: I am not a doctor, I am not a lawyer, I am not a licensed mental health counselor. Nothing in my blog is intended to be medical or legal advice, and for legal purposes should be considered nothing more than fictional writing for entertainment value only. I’m (might be) doing my best to recount my experiences and stories as accurately as possible, but can and will change names to protect the innocent and may even over dramatize for the reader’s benefit from time to time.

Another tiny disclaimer: I may receive an affiliate commission from products or services that are recommended, advertised, or sold on my website. I’d like to tell you that this fact doesn’t influence my recommendation of those products but I’ll be straight with you: I’m here to offer valuable and authentic information first, and then monetize my adventure second.
