You'll love this podcast if you've awoken to the fact that you have too many years left to retire from an unsatisfying job. Life is uncertain, and you know you'd love to travel the world, or pursue something you're passionate about full time, but you're stuck thinking this life is only for millenials or rich people. Wrong! Listen in and you'll meet people who left stable income in their late 30s, 40s, and even 60s(!) to travel full time. Some of them quit just to travel, others left to grow a business while traveling. You'll learn their stories, epiphanies and even practical tips on how to afford life as a nomad.
