“Not everyone will understand your journey. That’s fine. It’s not their journey to make sense of. It’s yours.” — Zero Dean

My name is Zero Dean.

Since 2010, I’ve been sharing lessons to help people find the courage, confidence, motivation, and self-discipline needed to overcome life’s challenges. Everything I share is based on real-life experiences and an ongoing journey along the path less traveled.

In December 2018, I published my first book: Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled Volume 1. My book consists of approximately 400 potentially life-changing lessons for men & women of all ages.

Thanks to celebrities like Elizabeth Gilbert, Tommy Chong, and others my work has been shared with an audience of millions. In 2015, in the span of just a couple months, my “Not everyone will understand your journey” quote was shared with over 30 million people on Facebook alone (sadly, without attribution). My work has also been plagiarized a number of times (I used to think it was a coincidence — it’s not), so it’s entirely possible you’ve read some version of my work that either didn’t have my name attached — or was replaced with someone else’s. That’s the internet for you.
