Have you ever heard of a simple guy living an above average life….on a budget? Or what about someone who makes the most out opportunities regardless of what the future may hold? Yeah that guy is me! My name is Kenny Daniels and this is my blog, aka, my life. A Chicagoan that landed in Miami. How does a person go from one extreme to the next right? (literally speaking). I’ll tell you how….big dreams led me here, and tried my best to make them a reality. But in result, it remained just a dream. I went from practicing Architecture after college to being certified as a Personal Fitness Trainer and Athletic Coach. I even spent 8 years within the night industry meeting tons of people, celebrities, and stars. I made great money..and fast; but it came with some high demands. Life became stressful! I felt trapped and every move I made was dictated upon work. I bet you’re saying to yourself that this sounds familiar. I had to face the fact that all dreams aren’t meant to be real. But what if I told you that both your dreams and reality could co-exist equally? What if I told you that sacrifices don’t have to come with pressure or stress? What if I told you that you can find ways to explore the world, enjoy life, and still maintain your normal way of living…all on a budget? Well you’ve come to the right place. Lets paint your picture to a good life.

Welcome to Karpe Diem!
