About Me

Welcome to my little corner of the internet, where I share the lessons and experiences from my unconventional journey. My name is Justin Merrell, and I've been on a quest for knowledge, self-discovery, and financial independence.

 

The internet can be a noisy place that fragments who we are. This website serves as a point of origin to bring together my story and insights.

 

From dropping out of college to founding a makerspace that raised a quarter of a million dollars in federal funding and earned me an invitation to the White House, I've learned that there's never a "perfect" time for anything. Taking the road less traveled may be lonely at times, but it has ultimately been rewarding and full of valuable lessons.

 

In recent years, I've embraced a minimalistic lifestyle, which has taught me the importance of simplicity and helped me find balance in my personal and professional life. I aim to inspire and guide individuals of all ages who are working tirelessly to pursue their dreams and to share my insights on navigating the complexities of life and business.

 

With a background in various projects and experiences, I've learned the importance of considering alternative perspectives and giving others the benefit of the doubt. My core values center around not following the masses, seeking happiness outside of the traditional path, and continuously learning and growing.

 

Through this website, I hope to organize my thoughts and experiences into a source of inspiration and guidance for others. Join me as I share the life lessons, adventures, and successes that have shaped who I am today.
