I am a happily married 31-year-old Chinese American living in Boston, who’s been to 5 continents multiple times, left the job that change my life, and now looking for financial independence ASAP. I was born in Flushing, New York but grew up in a tiny Western Massachusetts town, so you can pretty much say I am “white washed”. Still like most every other Asian growing up, I grew up with a large extended family that was cutthroat, gossipy, and “all about the name”. I want to share with others a little on how I navigated through all the pins and needles of being brought up in a very traditional Asian household, in a very “American” town, and more importantly where I am going now and how I am doing it, with my own unique narrative. These are just my thoughts and personal opinions. I don’t mean to disrespect or offend anyone, and am always open to anyone’s input and thoughts.
I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination. —Jimmy Dean
