In this inaugural Slow FI Coffee Date, Angela Rozmyn (Tread Lightly Retire Early) and I discuss working part-time and my transition to entrepreneurship.
I know that I need to be as judicious (if not more) with my time as an entrepreneur than when I worked part-time. There are so many opportunities and ideas I could pursue. I need to prepare myself to say “No” a lot more often, so that I can say “HELL YES” when a really great opportunity comes my way.
I’ve done a lot of opting out in my life. Some of my opt-outs were scarier than others, but I’ve made it through all of them. I’m committed to writing my own script in life. That’s why I was so excited to read Adventures in Opting Out by Cait Flanders.
Two year ago, Jacob quit his job. He and his wife Michelle sold their house and everything they own. Then, they hit the road to travel full-time with their three kids. Check out this Slow FI interview to learn more about their story.
Saving more money isn’t just about expediting your journey to FI, but enhancing it. It can provide you the opportunity to buy more freedom now by designing your life. Focusing on the big three expense categories can help you accomplish that without going too far to the extreme.
I’m an aspiring minimalist who is passionate about social justice. This is why I’m going to vote with my dollars this year and buy all consumable (food and drinks) gifts from black-owned businesses.
I’m excited to publicly announce that I’ve decided to quit my part-time job and take the leap to “full-time” entrepreneurship. I was originally planning to wait until the summer of 2021 to quit. In this post, I share why I decided to take the leap to entrepreneurship now.
I’m excited to share a Slow FI interview from Michelle (who writes the blog FIRE and Wide). Michelle took a Slow FI path to reach financial independence and now realizes that she could have transitioned even earlier.
In order for travel to be affordable, we need to plan ahead. The biggest three travel costs – accommodation, transportation, and food – are the biggest three expenses. If we plan ahead, we can cut those costs significantly. Surprisingly, planning ahead can even make a trip more enjoyable.
