Life Hack: Job Security and Financial Independence
You did everything right. You found a job you enjoyed, saved half your income, maxed out your retirement plans, and built a nice nest egg. You are well on your way to financial independence. Then the inevitable happens. The economy slows or the boss retires or the company downsizes and you are unemployed.

Inspiration to Greatness
Everything I am I owe to the world and people around me. Motivation and inspiration are the necessary ingredients to build the person you want to be. Reading good books every day is a must; listening to awesome people share their story is a must; learning every day is a must. Today I want to share part of my personal life. From a young age I started listening to Zig Ziglar; I have a picture on my wall at the office with Zig and I shaking hands. It was a highlight of my young life. Later I immersed myself in Tony Robbins. The internet, especially YouTube, allowed me to listen to massive numbers of happy, successful, achievers on a regular basis. Today I will share some of those videos I start and end my day with.

Saving money and reducing our personal impact on the planet are the two main drivers (pun intended) behind hypermiling today. I will share the best methods I use to achieve 46 miles per gallon in a 2007 Toyota Camry. If you are willing to work the technology harder your results will probably be even better.
