Welcome to GritMadeMan.com. I’m Derek, husband, father, and the proverbial error in “trial and error”. My mom has even joked that I was her favorite mistake.
I still make tons of mistakes. GRITMADEMAN documents mistakes I make while uncovering strategies for acquiring inner peace and freedom. Basically, I learning how to be prepared and agile enough to maximize and thrive through opportunities and challenges life presents. I’ll be sharing what I learn from people who have persevered to progress and achieved mastery. I seek knowledge to help master my mindset so I can effectively manage my finances, health, time, and relationships.
Lions cap the safari’s food chain, large corporations and the educational institutions are atop the financial structure, and they corral our genius into their jobs like cattle into the barn to be milked. Thus, like the lion won’t inform its prey how to avoid becoming its meal, leaders of corporations and their partners won’t share how you can avoid your work being more for their benefit than your own. If they taught you how to avoid the college debt-trap, then your need for their jobs is reduced. Then, when you share that information with those you love, and corporations can’t feed on your labor, what will they eat? Shout out WallStreetTrapper for the analogy.
My hope is that others can learn from my mistakes and apply knowledge that I discover so we can grow more gritty together. If you ever want to connect, tap in through my contact page or hit me on social.
