The Bucket List Family
Posted on 16 June 2016
In honour of Father's Day, we're sharing the story of The Bucket List Family.
What do you do when Snapchat buys your mobile app for $54 million? If you're Garrett Gee you put it in the bank, sell everything you own and embark on the journey of a lifetime with your family.
"A new house and new cars didn't feel right. We didn’t need that stuff. We were young, healthy and really didn’t need much of anything. So we started joking about putting our money in savings, selling everything and using those funds to travel the world. Where would we go? What would we do? And as we began to add more plans to our bucket list, it just became real.” Read the full article on People.com
Since then, they've travelled to New Zealand, Indonesia, Thailand, Bahamas, Australia, Tonga and the list goes on.
Through their travels, "we've learned to find happiness with less," says Garrett, "and we've become more open-minded and open-hearted. We've learned about other cultures and where they seek happiness. Good, happy people, I've learned, come from everywhere."
Garrett's three factors to success:
1. Be impressive: success doesn’t just grace anyone and everyone. It seeks out impressive people — hard-working, talented, sincere, good-hearted people. Basically, be deserving of any success that wishes to find you.
2.Be yourself: it’s fine to learn from others and look up to those deserving, but let it stop there.
3.Be successful: realize what success really is. That way, on your pursuit to ‘financial success’ you can enjoy real success. You can enjoy your health, your family, and the things that really determine success.
