PublishingLife was founded in March 2020, but our story started long before that. Back in 2016, our founders, twin brothers Rasmus and Christian Mikkelsen, were attending community college in New Jersey, delivering Chinese food 4 days a week… and completely lost. They knew if they did nothing and just followed the same path as everyone around them, they’d soon be spending 40 hours a week in an office cubicle, shackled to one location in the world and working hard to make someone else rich and happy.
Just the idea of needing to ask for permission to take a break from work was enough to know this life path would make them extremely unhappy. They knew the world was meant to be explored and life should be full of unforgettable experiences and emotions, not just spent working on meaningless tasks for a paycheck.
It was clear the only way to have complete freedom and control in life was by being their own boss and building something that could run entirely online.
