Greetings everyone! This week we have an exciting announcement that has been in the works for a long time.
Last spring, as I put on mud boots to cross an icy river simply to take the compost out for our Inn Keeping job, I was also furiously adding and re-adding two years worth of our budgets. For almost the past ten years I have kept meticulous details of all the money we spend in any given year. Finally this tedious task paid off as we were able to be the travel couple chosen to be in Nora Dunn’s new book, Working on the Road. Oh boy!
What is Working on the Road about? It’s about learning of all the creative ways to work on the road and be location independent. Chris and I consider ourselves professional travelers because for over the last ten years we have:
- eliminated all our debt
- consistently grown our savings and investments
- moved abroad to immerse ourselves living and working in several countries
- we can take advantage of higher paying jobs to work anywhere in the world
- independently traveled throughout non-English speaking countries
- have figured out how to hand wash our own clothes
- can eat anything with a spoon
- mastered the art of hand gestures and stick figure drawings when all other communication has failed
How do we consistently work seven months and take five months (or longer) off every year? What kind of life style do the others in the book share that enables them the freedom to live as they wish? Even if you’re not looking to fly over oceans and move abroad, do you want to find creative ways to adjust your working life to allow yourself more flexibility? Or are you just curious to see what we and the other people in the book spent in 2011 and 2012? Well, then check out Working on the Road.
Nora’s done all the hard work of compiling all these stories, examples and resources for you. All you have to do is decided you’d like to be Working on the Road or learn some interesting ways to tweak your current lifestyle. We were very thankful to be a part of this project and hope it helps others to create a life that is meaningful and full of passion. I wish you each the highest level of success to your lives. If there is anything we can help you with, please do not hesitate to ask. Whether it is your current aim to alter your own working life, or just take an inside peek at how others do it, I hope Working on the Road will help you spiral towards your goals.
