Interview With Gary Arndt & How He Makes 6 Figures Doing What He Loves
In 1998 Gary sold his business to a multinational corporation and they sent him on a whirlwind 3-week tour of their offices in January 1999. As he visited Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, France, Germany, Belgium and the UK, the trip stuck with Gary for years.
In 2004, Gary decided to go back to school and study geology. After seeing the hell that PhD students were going through, the idea of going to graduate school became very unappealing to him.
So, he decided to travel around the world.
It took about 2 years for Gary to tie up all the loose ends he had. Finally, on March 13, 2007, he turned over the keys to his home and never looked back.

Did you just ask where Tel Aviv is?
