Before Your Job Kills You is a real-life Comedy-Travel-Tragedy-Thriller that is often mistaken for being a just another Self-Inflicted Millennial Drama.
The Blog centres around an English male who abandons his 9-5 office rot in favour of World Travel, Entrepreneurship, Self-Development, and the Psychosis that comes from embarking on all those things.
Confusingly, Before Your Job Kills You isn’t a rally cry for everyone to quit their job and live out of a backpack. Rather, it is a presentation of what is available beyond the western live-to-work bubble, and a source of inspiration to anyone that feels locked in and bound by society’s expectations.
The Blog discusses the idea of milking the ever living shit out of Geoarbitrage, Necessary Travel, and that nauseating concept of ‘Make Money Online!’
There is a strong disdain for mainstream online marketing methods, sensationalist lifestyle blogs, and the ever growing phenomena of Guruism.
Before Your Job Kills You ‘s Creator, Writer (and all-round attention-seeker) likes to hammer on about the absurdity of everything as being central to the lighthearted tone of the blog.
