Preparing for a Gap Year with a Family of Five

I'm excited about this Slow FI interview with Heidi Dusek (from Ordinary Sherpa) because she shows us that you can still live an adventurous life with kids. In fact, she and her husband are taking their 12, 10, and 7-year-olds on a gap year RV road trip in 2023.

Downshifting to Part-Time to Design a Purposeful Life

I'm so excited for this new Slow FI interview with Anita. Earlier this year, Anita transitioned into a part-time role that had more meaning and purpose. Working part-time also allowed her to take care of herself and build a side business.

Money Doesn’t Magically Fix Our Problems

During his financial freedom journey, JD Roth used money (or a lack of it) as an excuse for not doing things that would improve his life. When he reached FI in 2009, a realization set in.

Pursuing FI as a Nomadic Traveler

When asked why they are pursuing FI, many people answer that they want to travel more. Many of these same people also believe they need to reach FI and retire early before they can do these things. It's time to bust this myth. That's why I invited Cris Gawlik, who has been a digital nomad since 2019 to join me for a Slow FI interview.

Best Ugly Produce Delivery Service

When we first learned about financial independence, we started to analyze our spending. One of the first things that we realized was that we spent way too much on groceries. While I was doing research into Community Support Agriculture (CSAs), I stumbled across ugly produce delivery services, and found two companies in our area to test out. Here's what I discovered.

Our Non-Budget Campervan, Part III: The Costs

A few weeks ago, we wrote about the layout and features of our non-budget campervan. This post is all about the costs.
