My name is Miles and I am a 29 year-old former engineer and tech consultant turned Business Development Manager currently living in Silicon Valley. I have spent time in Spain, South Africa, Hong Kong, and Nepal, and have been influenced by all of these places. This blog in its current form is a creative outlet for me and it is continually changing in its shape and form. The current focus is for me to track my journey towards a financially independent and early retired, also known as FIRE.
The site name makesweetlemonade came from a saying my friends and I came to adopt as kids, we all had our own versions of adversity in our lives and realized you can complain and mope about your problems, or, you can take your perceived issues and find the silver lining, thus “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade, sweet lemonade.”
