Michael Gardon

I make mistakes - all the time.


I chased "success" and money like a type A madman, until I realized there was still no fulfillment there.

Work equaled success for me, and I pursued it like a robot. I felt I had to sacrifice myself in order to get it.

Now I know better. Life isn't one dimensional. It's full stack. Creative work. Family, Relationships. Health. Spirit.

Now, my goal in life is to be balanced. What I call a Full Stack Human.

To do that, in 2018 I decided to break my relationship with work and build a wholistic life where I was balanced, attentive and still achievement focused AF!

It's just that I wanted my achievement to be mine, and not someone else's.

So I designed my way out of corporate work by taking a risk managed, methodical approach.


  1. I created space at my job

  2. made my paycheck the investor in my future vision

  3. built my side hustle into FT corporate exit.

Now I write, create and talk about how to build an unbreakable approach to life that turned me into a Full Stack Human. 

One that enjoys work, enjoys family and enjoys life.
