9 Years Ago, I Realized I Was Trapped in the Matrix...

Early in college in 2010, I started to realize I was following a Life Script I didn't write...

I began to see that the Cultural Rules governing my life had been invented by other humans...

And these Rules weren't designed to nurture my Soul...

Increasingly I valued Freedom, Creativity, Love, Joy, Wisdom, Peace...

But the Life Script I'd been given encouraged me to go in a different direction...

It told me to give away my Freedom...

To stand in line and do what everyone else was doing...

To sacrifice my best years making money to buy stuff I didn't need...

I started to realize I had to find another way.

In 2012, I spent a month studying abroad...

Around the same time, I started blogging and learning about entrepreneurship...

And researching ways to earn money abroad...

In 2013, I moved to South Korea to teach English...

I lived in Asia 16 months...

After that, nothing could ever be the same...

JORDAN BATES ESCAPING THE RAT RACE

No Alarm Clocks. No Dress Codes.
No Schedules. No Commutes. No Bosses.

For the past 9 years, I've been on a journey to understand how to liberate myself...

This journey has taken me to 32 countries to explore the edges of possibility...

In 2015, I quit my last brick-and-mortar job...

To work for myself and earn a living sharing my Sacred Gifts on the Internet...

People started asking me how I was able to travel the world...

While earning a living online as a Writer, Artist, and Entrepreneur.

I started to wish I had a Blueprint to give people.

A Map and Toolkit with Everything I Wish I Had Known when I started my journey...

The idea for Escaping the Rat Race was born.

"Follow your Bliss and the Universe will open doors where there were only walls."


— Joseph Campbell
