The short answer is that I was 6 days behind on my daily blogging for the month, so I had to catch up.

But why was I 6 days behind?

In the past 13 days, I’ve been to 8 major cities:

Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Denver, Kansas City, St. Louis, and Atlanta. The trip has changed a little bit since I drew that map.

I’ve been on a journey from the west coast to the east coast. I’ve been driving a lot, working remotely, and I simply let my blogging slip away until today.

2 oil changes and 3000+ miles later.

A lot has changed in the past year.

In March, I launched a college campus tour, which landed me stuck living in an RV in California with no money.

So I drove back east and sold the RV. But I was already in the middle of a transition, and I didn’t want to continue living in Ohio. So I packed up my car and moved back to California. This time I would get an apartment, gain some stability, and get myself back on my feet.

Well, 3 months after moving to California, here I am driving back east.

I’ve always been an entrepreneur at heart, even though I didn’t realize it until I dropped out of college. Since I realized this, I’ve known I wanted to start my own business. What I didn’t know was how difficult this can be.

In the past I’ve tried to start several businesses, but they mostly ended up as great learning experiences disguised as failure. I learned that it’s near impossible to force myself to be obsessed with something I’m not naturally obsessed with.

I’m naturally obsessed with education. I could talk for days about my core beliefs on education, how I think they should be implemented, and why our current school system is failing so miserably.

Ever since I discovered Praxis towards the end of my tour, I wanted to work for them. Praxis is the physical manifestation of my core beliefs on education. They inspire education through freedom and creativity.

I never thought I would be OK working for somebody. I wanted to create my own alternative. But I had tried for almost two years tripping over my feet the whole time. Praxis seemed to be doing something right. I decided I would join them, since they’re fighting for the same cause.

Praxis is the only company I know of that I would sacrifice my desire to be my own boss for the ability to create a bigger and more immediate impact.

That’s why it was worth driving back across the country for the 6th time this year. I’m moving to Charleston, South Carolina to build the company that will make college obsolete.

I have big plans for myself and for Praxis. Stay tuned.
