Musings of a Wayward Philosopher endeavors to blend free market economics with sound personal finance and personal wellness principles to illustrate a particular outlook on life that enabled the author to reduce clutter and insecurities while embracing the finer things life has to offer. This collection of essays places a heavy emphasis on the merits of private capital, asset allocation, entrepreneurship, and mindfulness with an emphasis on self-empowerment. The inaugural volume also investigates the lost art of non-intervention and demonstrates the inner strength that can be discovered once one learns to focus only on that which he can control. You will find this text to be direct, uncensored, and brutally honest, often flying in the face of accepted conventional wisdom with the perspective presented.

About the Author
Joe Withrow is just an average, hardworking American who did everything by the ‘American Dream’ handbook.
He took advanced classes in a public high school and graduated with good grades. He then went on to earn a finance degree from a public university.
Upon graduation, Joe moved to a metropolitan city and played the corporate game, working for two different mega banks and earning several minor promotions/pay raises/bonuses for his efforts.
Joe bought a starter home, met his wife, and settled down to live the American Dream – just as he had been “educated” to do. He contributed the match rate to his 401(k) and he maxed out his contributions to a traditional IRA – just as he had been “educated” to do.
Joe was doing everything the “right” way and a storybook life appeared to be unfolding before him.
But then something strange happened.
Joe started to see that the rat-race had no light at the end of the tunnel and no rewards worth reaping.
So Joe started to do a lot of independent research and he started to do a lot of introspective examination. He quickly came to the realization that he had to build a more self-reliant lifestyle if he wanted to have a chance to create a Mindful life for himself and his family. So Joe ended his career in corporate America, sold his home, liquidated his government-approved retirement accounts, and moved to a rural area up in the mountains to begin the next chapter.
Joe has since been working to gradually make his small homestead as resilient as possible while also capitalizing an Infinite Banking insurance policy (IBC) and minding his asset allocation model in an effort to prepare for the “Great Reset”.
