On this episode of Work-Life, host Eric Dickmann talks with Myles Wakeham. Myles is an Australian who migrated to the USA in 1989 and has since become a multi-millionaire. He lives a 100% free and unconstrained life, yet never graduated high school, let alone go to college. Wakeham is a self-made business-focused technologist who was one of the early members of the biotechnology corporation Amgen, now the largest Biotech company in the world. He spends 50% of his time in Arizona and 50% of his time roaming the world, seeking new opportunities.
Myles is a technologist, consultant, and podcast host. He has made a fortune on Bitcoin since 2011 and owns a portfolio of rental properties. He has many interests, including public speaking. He enjoys reaching out to people and helping them on their road to financial freedom. Starting his working career as a programmer in 1978, Miles went on to found Edgneering LLC in 2007-one of the first "cloud computing" companies in Phoenix, Arizona. His journey has taken him from wealth to ruin, and back again but his contrarian approach to life and entrepreneurial spirit have continually brought him back to success.
Today, Myles continues to seek investment opportunities and values teaching others the value of multiple income streams and how to be an owner, not an operator of your business.
Myles learned to play the violin at the age of 6 and performed in junior symphony orchestras. Later on, he learned to play the guitar. Born in Australia, he moved to the United States seeking opportunities. Despite setbacks including a devastating car accident, financial crashes, and a divorce, Myles has sought out ways to live a life of purpose in helping others.
Myles hosts "The Unconstrained Podcast" in which he teaches the art of financial sustainability to his audience and has recently published a new book. He works to live, not live to work, and wants to help others challenge their assumptions and make better decisions that will help facilitate their financial freedom and gain the ability to live a more balanced life.
