Break free. Reclaim your power.

Live true to your self.

He asked, “How did you quit your job.”

I replied, “I wrote a 2-line resignation letter and walked it in to my boss’ office.”

He replied, “I know what you did, I want to know how you were able to do it!”

This book is (I hope) a better answer!

About the Author

"Once upon a time, there was a Jamaican civil engineer living in New York who hated his job, followed his passion, started a sideline business publishing his own books, quit his job, escaped the rat race, ran off to a tropical island in the Pacific, and started a tourism business so he could give tours of the island to pretty girls every day....and live a nomadpreneur's dream life."

About the philosophy

Walt Goodridge escaped the New York rat race to live on a tropical island in the Pacific and live his life as a nomadpreneur. The "Living True to Your Self" philosophy explains the unique belief system, and worldview that empowered him to break free, reclaim his power and live true to his definition of himself and the world, and to find his place in it. Redefine living. Redefine Truth. Redefine the Self...and then redefine Freedom! Experience this candid and intimate account as a kick in the pants to do the same...whatever your definition of freedom may be!



"I just finished reading (in one engaging sitting) Walt Goodridge's masterpiece "Living True to Yourself." Inspiring, brave and life-confirming. Not a situational or personal truth, this book is THE universal truth about what it takes to be a genuinely real and congruent human being. This book will challenge you on every level and yet will remind you at every turn that you are up to the challenge. Cannot recommend this enlightened work highly enough."

--Hari Nam Singh Khalsa, spiritual teacher and counselor, minister in the Sikh faith


"Living True To Your Self, by Walt Goodridge, is a treasure trove of invaluable advice, hands-on instructions and coaching, as well as scholarly methodology and reflections on how to break free from the monotony of your life, and live the life of your dreams while being grounded in reality. This book is not about a mirage of promises of what your dream life may look like if only you chose to believe in your dream, but far better – the book, among other things, is the authors’ real life account of how he himself has created the life of his dreams, and continues living true to his dreams, while remaining a self-sustainable individual who makes no ethical compromises. It's a guide to what many of us aspire to, but seldom have been able to accomplish on our own or without compromising our important principles. Having read Goodridge's book you will know first hand that such a life is possible, and will be inspired and, more importantly, equipped to live the life of your dreams too!" --S Poznyak


I've just read this book and highly recommend it, along with Walt's other main title "Turn Your Passion Into Profit". Both books make a nice package and complement each other. This book is VERY empowering, motivating and inspiring. It's also a spiritual book as well, with many awakening concepts that are in line with my articles as well.

It's the kind of book that aligns your consciousness with your will, so that you can live more freely and consciously, in accord with who you are and whatever your calling is. It also identifies social and psychological traps that we've fallen into, so that they no longer pose a hindrance to us.

You've all heard the saying, "Do what you love. The money will follow." Well this book is the epitome of that. Once you read it, you will understand more than ever the wisdom behind that saying. It's true in more ways than you might think. You see, if you only live to work, then you don't have a true purpose in life. The most authentic lifestyle is to follow your passion, and make a living while doing that. That is the TRUE way to live true to yourself and live freely. This book will help you do that, in many ways.

Walt is one of the few gifted writers who understands this inner transformation one must go through to change one's life, because he too, has had to undergo a transformation in consciousness in order to live a life of freedom, authenticity and abundance. You see, changing your life is more than just about doing practical how-to steps in the physical world. One must move from a state of being locked in fear and limitation into one of abundance, possibility. That requires a transformation in consciousness, for true freedom begins in the mind. At that point, the inner change will manifest into the outer.

I would definitely put this book in the MUST READ category. It's the kind of book that changes lives.—Winston Wu, founder of
