My name in Jason, before 30 I guess I never really thought about finding the open dream of financial freedom. Between constant schooling and maintaining a fulltime jobs as City Bus Driver which lasted 13yrs I really hadn't the time to think of much other than just living responsibly. Of course I was an great asset to my Union staying highly politically involved and being able to say that our team built the best Contract of 2013 (which was so unheard of since we were one of the few that actually gained, placing us at the top of the pay scale w/excellent benefits). All for a little place called Santa Cruz, CA.
It was probably the act of getting involved with Politics and Socializing at so many different functions that open my mind to living a different lifestyle. Also seeing how so many other people lived and becoming close friends with Mayors and Chair Board Members implanted in me the seeds to seek change.
Less responsibility (which is still hard for me) and more fun! Is where I want to be now. I'm dedicated to the cause, I even still give myself a "schedule" to keep which I hope drains out of as I feel freedom growing.
But I hope to share experiences with everyone and watch the WA community grow. I'm still the Bus Driver/Union Rep at heart hoping we all get to our destinations in a safe and timely manner... together :)
