We spent the last month exploring Utah’s Mighty Five, the five national parks in Utah, and the surrounding area. This was the part of our road trip that I was most looking forward to, and it did not disappoint. In this post, we share the best things to do and what we’d do differently in the future.
For Meg, financial independence was never about not working. She’s always had so many hobbies and ideas to explore. Instead, FI could provide her with the ability to explore these options. In 2020, Meg went part-time and has built a portfolio career doing work she loves.

Kathryn started traveling full-time in an RV over three years ago as a traveling speech language pathologist. In the last two years, she’s built a virtual business that allows her to work from anywhere.

I’m excited to bring you a new Slow FI interview with Lisa. She and I have uncanny similarities. We both worked in nonprofit HR, experienced mental health challenges, and made career changes. Our paths were somewhat different, but have brought us to similar places – running our own businesses and loving RV (or van) travel. Read the full interview to learn more.
The fear of not having enough money. It’s one of the main things that holds us back from taking action to improve our lives. But, what if we could figure out how much was truly enough? This would allow us to tame our fears and move forward.
After feeling like life was “living them,” Lee and her family decided to make changes. Her spouse negotiated the flexibility to work 4-days/week and take extended time-off during slow periods. Learn how they did it.
I hear a lot of people ask this question: “How do I discover meaning and purpose after retiring early?” In this post, I’ll share why this is the wrong question to ask and how you can build a meaningful life right now, regardless of where you are on your financial journey.
