About Me

Who am I and what I am up to

Hi I’m Eric Foster…

In 2011 I finally realized just how fed up I was with the way my life was going. So I made a list… A list of all the things that I did not like, things that caused me grief, things I was not happy with, and the things that I wanted to change. After all, life it just too short to be doing things that you don’t like to do, or want to do…

Midlife crises? Maybe, ok… probably! But I am fine with that.

What Is Go Brickless?

My Story…

What got me fired up, or shall I say, fired up again, is that I recently read the book The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss. Actually… I just read it for the third time, and now (finally), I am fed up, fired up, and ready to make some drastic changes in my life.

Originally, I read the book about 4 years ago, and then again 2 years ago, and then again recently! Over the last couple of years, I have spent a lot of time learning about building online businesses and internet marketing… And now, after 25 years of being self employed, and spending the last 3 years stuck in a 9 to 5 job working for someone else, it is time to get back on track, and design the life that I want.

Starting Over… At 45 Years Old!

To some, 45 is old, and to others, I am still pretty young. I won’t bore you with all the details now, but not too long ago, I was doing pretty good. At least I thought I was!… I had spent the last 15 years, involved with real estate. I owned a real estate company, a mortgage company, and invested in real estate. See a pattern forming here? Yep! All my eggs were in one basket, so they say. And well, I wasn’t smart enough to realize it until it was too late.

The end result? Everything I had built over the years, was gone, and I was left wondering, “what just happened”. By then, it was too late. So when I finally pulled my head out of the sand, I realized, I needed to get a job.

Honestly, I think I got stuck these past few years, just feeling sorry for myself. Let’s just say, it was not a pleasurable experience.

So here we are. I am tired of being a 9 to 5 slave, I have decided that it is time to kick my entrepreneurial spirit back into gear, and take some massive action! After all, I know I can do it, I did it before!

What I Have Done So Far…

For the last several years… I have been learning. I always felt the internet was the place to be.

– I recently started a 4 Hour Workweek Meetup group in Oregon, and decided to start hanging out with like minded people. We are at 100 plus members now, and if you are in the area, you should join us at one of our MeetUps!

1 day a week… This is pretty cool! If you have read the 4-Hour Workweek, you will know what I mean!

How I Got Started…

So, I decided what I needed to do, came up with a plan, and started taking the steps necessary to lead down the road of reaching the 4-Hour Workweek lifestyle…

Where I am Going…

Well, for sure, I am getting out of my current job, and soon. I hate it.

So What Can I Do For You?

Not to blow my own horn, but as far as starting, running, marketing, and building a business, I feel like I really know what I am doing. So if there is anything I can do for you, feel free to ask.

Here’s to you, and designing the lifestyle that you want!
