Contrarian Myles Wakeham on Being Unconstrained
Agnes and Myles start this episode comparing their childhoods as “free range kids”… with near-off the grid lifestyles and compare them to city living that has been the norm for the last 40 years.
Myles Wakeham was an early software developer whose life unfolded “unconstrained”. He discusses the way of the western world; medical tourism and has interesting views on longevity, government statistics and recommendations, quality of life in “developing” countries.
Myles shares a history of money and banking leading into a discussion of crypto-currency. “Be an investor, not a speculator”.
You might be tempted to be depressed about some of the convo but, instead, become proactive about your life, your life choices, and make choices that make you happy and keep you healthy. Make your life an adventure

About the guest: Myles Wakeham
Myles is atypical and yet successful. He is a millionaire, having had that status (and lost it) 3 times in his life. Today his final success has led him to tell his story through his appearances on dozens of media outlets and through hosting his podcast “The Unconstrined Podcast”.
Origianlly from Adelaide, Australia, Myles began his career as a software developer in the late 1970s, having never even graduated high school. After success in his field, he moved to the USA at the age of 24, with nothing more than a bag of clothes and left a millionaire.
Myles rejects the social norms of education, 9-5 job, and retirement outright and shows though his methods that one can live a financially stable life regardless of background, geography or education. His approach to being a contrarian shows that going against the herd can pay off.
