Jue is in his early thirties and from Vienna, Austria – the #1 world’s most livable city according to a Mercer ranking (he insisted on this information to be shared) and author of this blog.
He considers himself to be a micropreneuer, investor and world tourist.
His passion for traveling and adventures in life led to this blog.
He absolutely loves to speak of himself in third person whenever he thinks it sounds better or simply to illustrate how much he adores himself!
Short auto-biographical content
Now this is the dangerous part, so let us ignore the pluralis maiestatis for now!
Just like any other person (or at least most of them) on this planet I just want to be happy, find a role in life that makes at least some sense and maybe even have some fun – not necessarily in that particular order.
It is a pretty strange world, you grow up and society tells where to go, what to do and how to think. Sure the childish dreams should end at some day, but Bruce was right – only to become a man to dream again. My life stopped at some point going A, B, C… instead it became something like M, F, O, Z, P (note: don’t think of booking classes for now, event if it’s hard!).
I graduated from school, spent a few weeks on my compulsory military service (I decided to quit early, didn’t make too much sense to me), went to University, graduated again and got a job at a major Austrian bank.
Then I bought a house, got married, got a dog and … – nope, that’s where it went “wrong” (did you notice the poor George-Best reference in here?)!
I was not happy, switched jobs, switched cities, became a freelancer… and still wasn’t too happy.
Clever guy figured out: you need to do what you love, and in order to do that you first have to realize what it is that makes you happy – on a long-term perspective. Turned out a few things I learned at university are actually great fun to me – like global economy, business models, capital markets… and of course some stuff that would be widely described as your hobbies or your passions, like traveling, exploring the world, sports, music or culture.
Sounds like a way to live? Well, way to go! Before you actually develop a way of your dream-lifestyle a long, long time can pass you by. I mean, apart from that – obviously someone has got to pay for your life – and I was always pretty sure that dude is gonna be me! Sounds familiar?
It took me until summer 2014, when I finally decided to more and more focus on soley my idea of living. This means work when I want and where I want, and especially only on things I love. No limits, except those I set for myself. Explore the world, dive into different cultures and enter new adventures. Anyone could do it, but hardly anyone really tries.
So what all this should tell you: don’t say you cannot live your dream, just don’t say or think it! It’s all just a set of self-limiting beliefs greatly promoted by our society, so get over it and start your own journey.

- Major US Sports (Hockey, American Football, Basketball) fan supporting the Chicago teams, no matter what (and if this means regularly getting up at 3.a.m CET to see games live, so what?!)!
