7. The HemLoft secret tree house
After graduating with a degree in software development, owner of the self-made and self-funded HemLoft secret tree house, Joel Allen went to work for a start-up company that would eventually fold in 2006. Jobless and without direction, he then met self-taught carpenter 'Old Man John' at a festival who went on to inspire Joel in pursuing his passion for carpentry. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Venture away far, far away from civilisation – even if it's just through the land of your imagination, Just do it!
