Now before I start hearing the rumors as to why I’m moving back to Chicago, I thought it might be better for you to hear it straight from my mouth instead of the “preverbial grapevine.”
And as much as I love California, there are 2 very simple reasons why I’ve decided to move back to Chicago for this next season of life.
1. Since my business is 100% online, I can pretty much live and work anywhere in the world where there is a wifi connection. And as some of you already know, I separated from my previous business partners about 5 months ago and really don’t have much keeping me in California (Besides the awesome weather and Surfing of course).
But as much as I love jumping in the water after a long day of slaving away on my computer, there “is” a force in this universe that is stronger than Surfing.
I know, I know…. you might be thinking…. HOLY COW GABE…. what in the world could be better than surfing in the So Cal Waves. And the answer is simple.
2. “It’s about a girl.” And Since I don’t talk about my personal life too much, you may or may not know that I’ve been dating an amazing girl (Sara) for over 3 years now. And for the past 11 1/2 months she has been putting up with my California Shennanigans and doing the long distance thing with a smile on her face.
Don’t get me wrong. As tough as it is to maintain a long distance relationship, it has actually been really good for us. But all good things must come to an end, and after some long hard thinking, I’ve decided to “Give the little lady what she wants.”
So as you can see, the surfing will have to take a backseat for now because the lady needs some lovin. And thankful for me, I’m flexible enough to live an work pretty much anywhere in the world. (*hint that’s one of the main reasons I love working online)
So who knows what this next year will bring, but for now it’s back to Chicago!
See ya in Chi-Town,
P.s. I think I successfully avoided that Nasty Chicago winter just in time for Spring! Stay Inspired!
