About Austin Gillis
I’m Austin Gillis, a freelance writer, world-traveler (13 countries and counting), husband, fitness fanatic, and supergenius behind austingillis.com (obviously).
At 18, I dropped out of college with $173 to my name and boarded a one-way flight to Lima, Peru.
For eleven months I gallivanted across the globe, meeting a bizarre amalgam of our planet’s most interesting creatures: from Neo-Nazi farmers in Chile, to drug-addled Inc. 500 entrepreneurs in Colombia, to the eclectic middle-aged founder-turned-free-loving hippie in Mexico.
Along the way, I found myself begging for loose change, carted away in handcuffs (twice), addicted to cocaine, and threatened (on no uncertain terms) by the Nicaraguan cartels.
Despite my best efforts, I returned from my escapades (relatively) unscathed.
And, upon my return, realized that I needed to grow the fuck up.
Since then, I’ve found and married the love of my life, adopted two puppies, built a 6-figure career as a writer, regained control of my health, kicked my addictions, and cleaned up my act substantially—if not completely.
Now, at the ripe old age of 22, I work as the Editor for Early to Rise, Director of Content for Knowledge for Men, and the “blahger” in Chief here at austingillis.com
I’ve ghost-written content for top sites like Neil Patel, Forbes, Entrepreneur, Inc, and others, six books (including one Wall Street Journal best-seller), and generated tens of millions of views, and hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue for my top clients.
On this site, I write to answer a simple, but breathtakingly challenging, question:
How can we “have it all” and create a life filled with vibrant health, abundant wealth, intimate relationships, and a true sense of purpose and belonging.
I believe that we have an obligation and responsibility to give our all to this one existence we know we have…to leave nothing on the table…to dare greatly, fail mightily, and know the euphoric highs of success, and the stinging blows of defeat.
On this site, I write about financial freedom through freelancing (FFTF), performance optimization, work/life balance, and philosophy. Along the way, I’ll be sharing my personal experiments and the results they yield to help you figure out how to live better, be happier, and make the most of this insane journey called life.
The best place to connect with me and my writing is through my newsletter which you can subscribe to below. I’ll send you weekly content on writing, wealth building, philosophy, and more than a few profanity-laden rants. No spam. Ever.
I don’t have all of the answers and I don’t claim to. I’m just one human trying to make sense of life as best he can. If you want to join me on my journey, learn from my successes and failures, and get access to the ideas and strategies that are changing my life, just drop your email below and hit that pretty blue button.
