IMG_2148Hi! Hey you! Yeah I am talking to you. Thank you so much for checking out my page, I hope it is beneficial to you in some way. This is the beginning of my journey, and I would love if you came along for the ride. My name is John Max Bolling, and I am a 25 year old from Atlanta, Georgia. I am a Christian, I am married to the most inspirational woman in the world, and I am an aspiring author and speaker.

So, if you are still reading this I am sure you are asking yourself, What is this guy all about? Well, until recently I was just fumbling through life, I went to college, got a job, got married (best decision ever!!), and by all normal standards I was progressing through the “stages of life” pretty well. Even though I had all of these amazing things going for me I felt lost…can anyone relate? I was searching for something more, I wanted to be more!

So, I started looking in every direction for something that would fill this void, like a mad man I would convince myself I would be more happy if I did “blank”, and while I felt excitement for a little while it always went away. After switching careers 3 times in my first year of marriage my wife finally sat me down and we talked.

My wife has a burning passion for working with children with special needs, and my goodness she is so amazing. Her love and her passion have inspired me from the day I laid eyes on her. She is just one of those people who immediately changes every room she walks in, she lights it up! I craved what she had, I wanted to be that passionate about something, I wanted to know the purpose for my life!

So I started reflecting on what excited me, and I came up with 3 main things, working with kids and young adults, spreading positivity and inspiration, and helping others to realize their dreams. But how do I turn my passion into something I can do “full time”? How can my “job” be something I love? I started reading everything I could get my hands on that spoke about following your passions, and the moment I came into contact with people like Grant Cardone, Gary Vaynerchuk, and my buddy Morgan J. Ingram my life changed forever. Its crazy how people who don’t even know I exist can have such an impact on my life, and I hope one day I get to share that with them personally! It was while reading “10x” By Uncle G that I had that crystalizing moment, I had found my purpose! Since that day I have been amazed at how different I view the world.

And that is the beginning of TIMEbudget. I began thinking about all the time I had wasted, and how I could never get it back. Time is the only resource that we have that we cannot replenish. I took this concept one step further by thinking to myself, “why are we taught to budget our money, but not our time”? It is this question that has brought purpose to my life, and I can’t help but be determined to spread what I have learned with everyone I come into contact with! So, that is why I ask for you to stay tuned in and follow me down this rabbit hole as we explore how to budget our time to get the most of out this crazy thing we call life.

Thank you sincerely for taking the time to read this, please leave any comments, questions, or suggestions you may have. And I look forward to interacting with you more!

Love, John Max Bolling
