About Me

Hi, Thanks for visiting my website.  My name is Shawn James, and this is my story.

From an early age, I had a love for the outdoors that distracted me from just about everything else in life. Because I was so passionate about fishing, canoeing, hiking, bird-watching, archery, hockey and soccer, I had little interest in school or work. I was a dirt-bag wannabe, but I kept one foot in middle class society, trying to figure out where I fit in.  Really, like most people, I desired the comfort and trappings of wealth, but did not want to sacrifice my passion to acquire them.   It took me many years of trial and error, but I soon realized that I could earn more than enough money during short bursts of high intensity and focus. Working less than 40 hours per week but earning twice what my friends did, legally, allowed my to focus on my love of the outdoors. This discovery turned into a lifelong obsession with self-reliance, independence and freedom.

Growing up in suburban Ontario, Canada, I was fortunate to be surrounded by farmland and a navigable river where as a young boy, I could wander endlessly, fishing, paddling and skating on the river, bird watching, foraging wild edibles, building outdoor shelters for overnight forays and playing native with my primitive archery equipment.

When I was in my teens, my summers were spent working hard at a construction job where I earned excellent wages, so at the age of seventeen, I purchased a couple of acres on an island in a small lake north of Parry Sound, preparing for a life focused on the outdoors.

At twenty years of age, I sold that property for more than double what I paid for it and invested the profit in five and a half acres on the mainland of the same lake.  This experience was my first lesson in leveraging and passive income, and I liked it!  By the age of twenty-one, I decided school and work were not that interesting and I prepared myself to spend twelve months building and living in a small log cabin on that property. It was my first mini-retirement, a sabbatical of sorts, and it set the stage for a lifetime of self gratifying living.  It was the fulfilment of a childhood dream and it was extremely rewarding, but, once again, middle-class society sucked me back in.

Back to reality, my focus turned to starting a family of my own.  Fortunately, the lessons I learned during this time prepared me for my current life of passion, prosperity and self reliance.

Now in my mid-forties, I’m living the life of my dreams. I’ve had expensive cars and boats and I’ve travelled the world, but I always come back to what truly makes me happy – the outdoors.  For that reason, I’ve opted out of commercial society, stepping down from the corporate ladder, and regularly turn down opportunities for increasing my wealth.  Instead, I choose to live simply and free.  For many others, a dream life includes the typical status symbols – the big house, lavish lifestyle, expensive toys.  That’s fine if that’s your dream, and I’ve been there and enjoyed that too.  But now that I’m middle-aged, I realize that I’m much happier to live free, without the stress that accompanies attachment to material things.  And, without the need to sacrifice my freedom in exchange for the hard work and time required to increase my wealth or maintain that expensive lifestyle.

I’m constantly asked how I was able to retire so young, working no harder than average while spending most of my time with family and pursuing my passions over the years.  Efficiency, focus and strict adherence to wealth principles are the short answer. This website, along with my social media channels, provide the long answer, in great detail.  I’ll show you exactly how I designed my self reliant life. In the meantime, myselfreliance.com is a platform for me to explore and reveal my passion for the outdoors, and why I believe focusing on nature has provided me with the tools to succeed in life. As one of my success habits,  I’ve kept detailed journals of many of my exploits, business ventures and relationships over the last thirty years.  I refer to these journals while I chronicle my life, detailing how I got to where I am today; economically, physically, emotionally and intellectually self reliant, free to live life to the fullest.

    Hi Shawn, I have been trying to contact you without success! You are a hard man to get hold of. I am an Irish male 53 years old and fit, looking to come to Canada very soon and would like to know if you would like some free help. I am a classic yacht captain and have a lot of experience with wood and all other materials. It has been a dream of mine to spend time in the Canadien wilderness and now my life has taken a turn. I would really appreciate a reply even if you dont really need anyone. I am a huge fan of you and Joe and would love the opportunity to share our lives by the camp fire and i would hope to be useful too. Please reply soon as I need to start to plan my trip. If you would like some background before replying, please check out our Facebook page “NY48 Chinook” and the blog of the restoration of our 101 year old gaff cutter Chinook on “sailblogs using the same NY48 Chinook. My best to you and keep up the good work.

    Hi Shawn, i’ve been following your cabin build and outdoor adventures with Joe Robinet. Great fun! I’m around your age and a resident of ontario. Had the past year off to pursue my own personal self reliance. I’m not as far as yourself but working towards it. I did take a job last month and i’m back to the rat race to make some cash to purchase another property to be my mental meca. I intend to build a straw bale house ,off grid setup in a unorganized township. Not far from your cabin area. I’ve spent my youth/summers fishing/camping/canoeing the area i have in mind. A good portion of my family make up the village. I currently live north of GTA and my small town is becoming not so small and crowded. So moving north with my wife and trying my hand at homesteading is a dream i’m striving for.
    I enjoy your videos of your build and bushcraft skills.As well as your self reflections. You are the Buddha of the bush! Lol Keep up the goodwork and goodluck to you and your family.

    Hi Shawn, I discovered your wonderful videos recently. I’m 76 so probably past my time to create a log home and/or to be completely self reliant but still young enough to learn! A few things have been sticking in my mind so I thought I’d share for what it’s worth. Since listening to your talk about toxic people, I’m reminded of what someone told me once. If you let go of the people you don’t relate to or enjoy, you are actually giving them the gift of searching out those on their wave length. This has given me courage to back away when things weren’t right for me. That took me to thinking about gifts and I listened to your comments about the employee you and your wife had helped only to find he quit working for you and went to another place for more money. I am a recovering alcoholic of 38 yrs and am still grateful for the gifts people gave me. I’m sure that family remembers you and always will. You gave the gift and it is their job to “pass it on” as my mom taught me. So, all of this brought me to the thought of separating the idea of “gifting” vs “exchange” i.e. taking help and then feeling obligated. And one more tidbit. I don’t know where you live nor do I care (privacy!) but you mentioned Georgian Bay. I had a friend who lived in Perkinsfield Ontario most of her adult life. She was a teacher and painter and I have several of her works including one of Georgian Bay. It’s a treasure. Thanks for your continued sharing of your sane voice and thoughts.

    Dear Shawn,
    I want to thank you for being a real trailblazer. After watching your log cabin build go viral on youtube (past 1 million views congrats!), I was really inspired and am considering creating my own self reliance. On a side note, apparel is a great way to brand your self and your logo (hats, checkered shirts, the whole getup you have). I am from Massachusetts, USA and grew up in the suburbs around Boston. After college, when I was 25, I moved lived in Israel for 3 years, out of the same instinct of wanting to be independent, self reliant and really just prove to myself that I can make it in the real world on my own. Long story short, I came back because I wasn’t successful. As a result, I took that experience with a grain of salt, so to speak, but felt really down about myself. Nobody wants to fail, and no one wants to “learn” after failing. I keep hearing these days about “how it’s important to fail” and it just makes me angry, frankly. I think that you should be ok with making mistakes, but not ok with failing. I think that getting it right on the second go is good, but failing should be unacceptable. In a few months, I will be turning 30 and I’m not happy, but hopeful that I have a few years before it’s too late to gain some of the skills you’ve acquired. Maybe one day, I’ll build my own log cabin in Maine or someplace nice. The main reason, I am writing you is that I agree that planning is essential to getting self reliance off the ground. And I would appreciate being pointed in the right direction for how to make that 10 year plan you mentioned in your about video. I think if I had a mentor 10 years ago, I’d probably be in a cabin by now. If I don’t hear back, I wish you and yours the best of luck in your cabin adventures…now that I think about it, you don’t need luck if you have SELF-RELIANCE! lol
    Best regards,
    Mike

    Shawn –

    I truly enjoy your videos. To simply live…to live simply. Looks like you are doing it!

    I recently watched your ice fishing video. Please invest in some cleats or ice creepers!
    I have learned this lesson the hard way, especially when walking on wet ice.
    Also, add a skimmer to you ice fishing gear. Saves the hands from freezing somewhat.
    And remember to carry along a rag or old towel to dry your hands if they get wet.

    Beautiful fish you caught.

    After watching you talk about and demonstrate the Chopper Axe, I had to
    get one for my camp. Awesome axe!

    Keep up your videos!

    Hi Shawn,
    Enjoy your videos down here in NZ. Wonder if you’ve heard of Gravity Lights? Use gravity to run LED lights. Developed in UK especially for use in countries using expensive-t-run, unhealthy kerosene lamps. Google gravitylights.org. They were first (still?) produced in China but are now made in Kenya. They also have “satellite “ lights. Need 12kg weight or about that, lifted every 20 minutes. Bought an early model but no real use in a modern house unless we get a big earthquake or volcano… a bag of rocks or iron bars doesn’t go with my decor! I guess gold would be nice and dense and not so bulky. A specially—cast weight would be pretty. Done any gold panning?

    Hello Shawn,
    I am interested in learning how to build a log home. I am a healthy and strong 56 yr old woman. I have a 10 acre property off of Lake Kushog just north of Minden .
    I am interested in knowing if you have set up a course for going through the whole process of how to fell trees, peel them and cut them to build a log cabin. I want
    to make use of my land and the trees on it. I am not interested in buying a kit ,but have the experience of doing everything from what is on the property.
    I am interested in starting this spring and was wondering if you offered service. Could you let me know and if you don’t what company do you know that teach this
    in Ontario?

    Love your You tube series on the cabin build. I almost have enough money saved to buy my property here in Virginia. I hope you continue to show us your techniques and failures along the way to help us grow towards living our dream to be off grid. The way you have documented your journey probably helps so many get started and shows what hard work and dedication get you in life. Thanks again for all that you do and I hope to keep learning and watching your extremely helpful videos.

    Shawn. I was in search of videos on how to construct a hewn log home and ran across your videos. I thoroughly enjoyed your wisdom, insight, and reflections. Thank you for that. I have been searching for property myself a lot lately and have similar key points I am looking for in a property which brought me to the same area I believe you are in. I currently live in Oshawa, but I would like to find some land that is in an unorganized township, access to a stream/pond, far away from the crowds but close enough to a road to drive in, and also abutting crown land that I can enjoy for hunting and other recreational activities. The area between Sundridge/South River and Algonquin seems perfect. Realtor.ca has not had anything on there that I am looking for and I’ve been having trouble locating a property. Should you run across one in your travels that may meet these requirements (similar to yours, even more acres if available) please shoot me an e-mail with the details and contacts. Be well, and thank you again.

    Dear Mr. James,
    I have found your videos to be inspirational.
    I moved from New York City to rural Vermont for many of the same reasons you talk about in your videos, i.e. the need to be surrounded by nature
    Ultimately, I think you address psychic and emotional survival, along with the skills that enable someone to ensure their own physical survival.

    Personally, that is why I think your videos have such an impact.
    You really address survival on many levels.

    Thank you for sharing you skills and reflections with us.
    I have been very moved by them.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Mary Cleary Lewis

    Just stumbled on your site. What a trip. Way back in the ’70’s I lived in the San Juans on Orcas Island. Along with two buddies, Steve Kennedy and Lance Joyner, we formed “The Real Log Cabin Company” and built cabins on the islands, from felling to finish. Wonderful times.

    Dear Shawn,

    I can only add to to the many positive reactions on Your site. I think You’re right in Your observation that many people don’t live life according to their potentials and to what it has to offer. Even those who would have the means to do so and find themselves trapped in a race for money and power. So Your message doesn’t appear to be a political if not a spiritual or philosophical one. I do think though that there are many nuances in between the two catogories of people You distinguish. You for one use the net and social media which means You don’t step out of contempioran life conditions. I would like to say that for those who are not finding themselves in the right conditions to live the style of life You are following and promoting might still be able to keep in touch with nature and all the healing and healthy aspects coming along with it as far as possible. That might already be enough for a meaningful life. But I do thorouhgly agree that regarding a meaningful and fullfilled life might be more in danger nowadays that we have all the comforts at our desposal. Anyway You’re giving us a strong intuitive instruction to ways of psychological and physical selfhealing and well being in the sense of resilience.

    Greetings from Bavaria

    Hi Shawn
    I guess I feel we should be on a first name basis after the hours of your videos that I have watched ;-). I am encouraged to know that you actually read your emails because I wanted to tell you how your work has inspired me. I am 58 years old and recently moved into a log cabin that is a quintessential fixer upper. It was part of a retirement plan that my husband and I dreamt about from the time we first married 30 years ago. My husband grew up on a 300 acre farm and had wonderful stories to tell of his childhood as one of 9 children raised in the most wholesome environment of hard work and love. My childhood was very different, but I too had exposure to the wholesome outdoors during the summer months where my family enjoyed living on a Lake in a small rustic cabin built by my Grandfather. In my early childhood, the cabin environment was as close to off grid as I could imagine with no access to phones, television, or other distractions. I spent the entire summer playing in the woods and living on the Lake. The experience shaped who I am today and became the focus of my hopes and dreams. So, when I met my husband, it was like a match made in heaven. But, fast forward to today, and here we are trying to live out our dreams with the purchase of 18 acres and a run down Log Cabin that has turned into a never ending list of projects to complete. And, what we did not take into consideration was HOW MUCH work it was going to be and how much OLDER we both are….my husband is 64. Anyway, watching you take on the personal challenge of building your log cabin by yourself has given me a lot of hope.. Your calm patience and perseverance are an inspiration and help me not to get too discouraged. I watch your videos as therapy for my soul. I find myself relaxing and enjoying every aspect of your outdoor adventure from the carpentry and hard work to the cooking and the segments of outdoor relaxation with Cali ( I just love animals).I am also particularly moved by your personal self reflections. You are living your life as your authentic self and nothing can be more real and gratifying. I am grateful for the fact that you have decided to share it all with the rest of us (ironic given your inherent shyness).I hope you find satisfaction in knowing that you are helping so may others strive for there dreams too. God Bless both you and your wife, and Cali.

    Shawn, I am from northwest Florida about to move to Fairbanks Ak. As you might guess I really don’t have the proper clothing nor know exactly what to expect for living daily life there. My wife is in the USAF we have spent the better part of the last 2 years not really getting to spend much time together so I am walking away from a highly stressful job as a contractor for the USAF to be with her. WE are both really exited. WE will be there for about 4 years and will live in some type of a rural suburban area. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Kevin

    Bonjour Shawn! Merci pour toutes tes vidéos. Je rêve de vivre la même expérience que toi ici en France dans les forêts du Périgord Noir (en Dordogne). Tu me donnes beaucoup d’inspiration et d’espoir dans cette initiative. J’attends que mes enfants soient plus grands pour peut-être leur faire profiter d’expériences en pleine nature. Nous aimons notre confort dans notre région très touristique mais je fuis la foule et je préfère la vie au calme. Un jour, moi aussi, j’aurais un morceau de forêt et j’y construirai ma cabane. Bonne continuation et une caresse à Cali qui a vite grandi dans tes vidéos!…

    I recently saw an article in an on-line Paddler magazine that you contributed, regarding solo canoe trips. In the article there are a couple pictures of you with a green wood and fiberglass canoe. Might that be a Gates canoe? A couple years ago, through way more luck than brains, I got the opportunity to purchase a Gates 16′ beauty.

    Hi Shawn,
    I’ve been watching the cabin progress since you started building. I look forward to the videos you post on u-tube. Watching you and Cali enjoying the life you have chosen is very relaxing to me. It reminds me of when I was much younger, and times were much simpler. I grew up on a farm in northwestern Pennsylvania. If we needed something, we usually had to figure out how to make it or fix what was broken. I have made maple syrup from sap as well.
    You are gifted craftsman, and I appreciate you sharing your skills with me.
    Looking forward to more quiet, man within nature videos.

    Yesterday morning, I happened to watch your YouTube video by chance and it continued till late night. I loved seeing the the way how you showed (without talking but showing details ) your works as well as scenary of the beautiful winter of the area. I was touched by the self reliance and motivated. You showed we can be happy, live healthy and be free if we want. Thanks for the inspiration and sharing your life and journey. I am a lecturer and believe that your story will inspire our students when I share.

    Hey Shawn, your channel is awesome and educational and inspiring. I’m just a little curious about what you think about the crap that’s going on in the world and wondered if that’s partly why you decided to move out into the bush so to speak things like the GMOs in our foods and contaminated water and things like that do you have any spin or anything to say about that or what you feel about that …. I will admit I’m a bit of a conspiracy theorist but when you get right down to it a lot of these so-called conspiracies hold a lot of Truth. and you seem like a pretty smart man in a pretty down-to-earth guy just wondering if you had any feelings or thoughts on that that maybe you’d like to share.

    Shawn, I want to thank you about the subject about American Poplar trees I told you about and I think I will build a cabin out of those poplar trees and put a heavy coat of oil on them, would you have an idea to what kind of oil to keep the oil on them? I’ve been wanting to do this and now i’m going to try it out. but would like to put a good oil on them and I will have a 2 foot overhand all the way around It, If you have can recommend an oil , that would be great, and I’m putting the cabin at least 30 inches off ground with 8inch block, and making sure not to get moisture under floor, but thanks and Your buddy, David Kilbourne

    Hi Shawn,

    I moved from Northern Ontario to Southern Ontario for university and desperately miss the outdoors and the comfort of 50-foot trees, bears on the back deck, and all the water up North. Your videos help me get over a little bit of homesickness whenever I’m stuck on campus and in the city. I recently got a tattoo reminding me of home and discovered your videos about 3 weeks after that while lost on YouTube, and continued to binge watch for hours. I’m excited to see the future of your home and the surrounding property (as well as Cali of course) and am very thankful you decided to share with us mere mortals.

    Dear Mr. James
    First of all, to say that if I do not understand very well what I want to say, it is because of the low level of English I have, I am forced to use the google translator, so I beg your pardon.
    Not long ago I discovered the content of your YouTube channel and I was pleasantly surprised, really. I love seeing how a project starts from scratch and will gradually bring it to fruition, apart from the wonderful environment that surrounds it and which does nothing but awaken jealousy of the luck you enjoy.
    I also wanted to thank him, since his videos have become a relaxing therapy for me in those days of stress, because as soon as I see them after a hard day’s work, they relax me greatly.
    I said, I hope to continue watching many more videos of his so high human quality.
    Thank you very much for an admirer of your work, keep it up.
