Tinian Crawford went to college - and took 6 years to complete his Associates Degree in Graphic Design. College just wasn’t for him - he didn’t enjoy it and didn’t get much out of it. He knew he needed a job, but wasn’t sure what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. A series of odd jobs led to a position at a sign shop. Connecting the dots, he saw that many of the signs needed electricity, and figured he’d be worth more if he was an electrician. After mentioning this to his wife, suddenly vocational brochures started to arrive in the mail. He chose the most expensive way to get his license, and parlayed it into a minimum wage job until he was a journeyman electrician. Tinian took some time to figure out his path, but is now on the way to Financial Independence, living the life he wants on the terms he chooses. If you think you’re too late for FI (Spoiler Alert: you’re not!) THIS is the episode that will change your mind and show you it IS possible, even if you’re not 20 years old.
