Francisco Karate Kid Miller - Time Freedom and Hiking the Appalachian Trail
3770

Today I interview Francisco Miller who received the trail name "Karate Kid" while hiking the Appalachian Trail. Karate Kid went on to get a triple crown by hiking the Appalachian Trail (AT), Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), and Continental Divide Trail (CDT), and now works full time as a trail guide and hikes in his free time. Karate Kid realized (while hiking the AT) that he wanted to make a change in his life to do work he loved and spend his time in a more meaningful way. The AT is something I did in 2008, hiking 1,100 miles from Georgia to Pennsylvania over 3 months, and it is a bucket list item for me to go back and do the entire 2,200 miles start to finish. This episode is less about real estate specifically and more about the time freedom pot of gold at the end of all the real estate work  - our "why". Thru-hiking the AT is one of my "whys", and I encourage you to identify and pursue your work with your "whys" providing fuel for your pursuit.
