About my Pathway

Welcome to my pathway to Riches. I wanted to set up a website that will help others achieve the lifestyle they desire. I will walk through various different techniques for doing this and the pitfalls that I have encountered on my path. I hope that what I write and show you all the way will assist in giving others the opportunity to ditch the rat race and live the lifestyle of most peoples dreams.


My desire to explore was breed into me from a young age, as a young scout I was always away with friends taking part in various activities and challenging the boundaries of what could and couldn’t be achieved. On many occasions we would get lost just wondering off but normally it was because we found something more interesting to be doing or somewhere more interesting to be, I am sure my mother did not find this as enjoyable as I did.

I guess it is little surprise that I eventually joined the military and enjoyed numerous adventures to far-flung lands as well as visiting many places within England that I probably wouldn’t have, without a reason (not every trip for work is an arduous one). While I was traveling with the military we clearly worked and most of the time also managed some integration with the local population,  However, as most will be aware or at least believe the Army is not necessarily a place for raising a family and so I found myself in the big wide world bringing up my family and replacing a lot of these traveling adventures with the joy of my children.

Work for yourself they say it will give you freedom!! I find this a hard reality to take, because that is exactly what I did, I left the army and set up my own contracting business, now I actually done pretty well but I can tell you from experience that this is a hard path to tread( freedom is not a word I would associate with running your own business). With building a new business it is a constant struggle to balance everything. I would like to say things become easier but for me this wasn’t really the case, as you grow so do your responsibilities. The demands of those that you work for and those that work for you increase and while as I say I have done well enough from it, I hadn’t set out in business to work my fingers to the bone.

I wanted to set up my own business to have more freedom and spend more time with my family. I am sure this is the idea of most that start out. I have now decided that I will travel a different path to achieve my desired life style and I would love to help others follow me along that Pathway.

I want to retire early do you?

My number one goal in life is to retire by the age of Fifty! strictly speaking this is not my only goal because there are lots of goals that I have put in place to aid me in doing so and lots of other goals that should enable me to do so and be happy with my life, family and other situations but we can get to them later.

I have researched all other the internet and found many ways in which this may be achieved but I am going to personally road test a few until I find one, or two or three that helps me to achieve the end result that I want. I am a strong believer in trying to give to others and with this in mind I wanted to try to pass on my findings and help others achieve their own goals in life.

There is no better motivation than the inspiration and aspiration of those around you. Join my circle of influence and Let’s achieve greatness together!

The Mastermind theory

If I can achieve my ultimate goals through trial and error then so can you. If we can work together to achieve our goals then so can someone else. A Mastermind group is a collective of people that all want to help others achieve, Let’s all work together to create the worlds biggest Mastermind group and help the world achieve their own goals.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,

Drew Smith
