If we had bought our trailer before we retired, we might have been able to break free years sooner. It reframed our perspective on money and our priorities in life. Why? Because so many things about the trailer and the travels have changed our frame of reference.
We’ve ended up with a much safer retirement nest egg that we had worried about before quitting our jobs. Why? Partly, because just after I left my real job and entered the world of financial freedom, I “bought” myself a side gig. It was 2011 and real estate was on sale everywhere. Even crazy, leaky, old falling apart places with great possibilities to someone just crazy enough to try it. Like me!
