First of all, I want to say a big thank you to those of you who have followed along on this journey so far. I know you were probably expecting more to happen and sooner, but as life goes… priorities shift and we have to make the best decisions we can.
For us right now this means…Read More
Many of us in the homesteading community want to get out of the rat race, move to a rural area (or even the wilderness), grow our food, work on the homestead everyday, and enjoy a simpler way of life.
This is hard to do if you have to commute away from the homestead every day though. You never really get into that homestead state of mind when this is the case.
How to escape the rat race, then? How to wake up and be able to stay on our homestead, working on projects, enjoying our animals, nature, the land, the comfort of home, and our loved ones? That is the question so many of us feel daunted by.
We may get the acres, build the cabin, plant the garden… but, somehow it doesn’t feel complete when we have to leave every single day to go sell our time and get pulled back into that hectic state of mind that is the norm of modern Western industrial society.
We begin to believe it isn’t even possible and this is just the way it is nowadays.
I’m here to tell you that it is possible to earn a full-time income without having to leave your home(stead).
And no, you do not have to have some university-granted skill set to be able to do so. In fact, if you are truly motivated and driven to achieve this lifestyle, there is no reason you shouldn’t be able to achieve it in one year.
Just think - your life could be completely different this time one year from now. You could be working from home everyday or - even better - not working every day from anywhere, but generating passive income online instead! Freeing you to work on your homestead, on creative projects that are truly fulfilling, spending more time with those you love, and just enjoying a higher quality of life all around.
I know because I did (and am doing) it myself. So I wanted to share some personal advice if this sounds like a path you might be interested in taking yourself.
I’m going to share information about transitioning to working online from home followed by two passive income strategies - all that you can begin working on now!Read More
A Fall update! It’s the first of October, and I figured probably time for an update since our last one.
The purpose of sharing these updates is to show glimpses into our homesteading journey, so that when someone visits this site years from now and sees us living on our land, working from home, with beautiful plants and animals and hand-built structures dotting the landscape, living the dream essentially, and all with no debt… they can go back and see the beginning, they can see the steps we made and the time that it all took.
Not only does this make things more realistic, but I think it could also help people brainstorm ways of accomplishing similar dreams for themselves.
So what have we accomplished so far?Read More
It was around this time last year that I sat in a coffee shop in Kentucky, having just returned from the wilderness of northeast Washington, and longing to figure out how to find a way to live in that beloved wilderness full-time.
Since then, I’ve learned so so much and I’m happy to report - it worked! I sit here now typing this to you from that wilderness I so longed for.
This article is about one of the biggest hurdles those of us who want to homestead and live off-grid in a rural location have to figure out - how to fund this lifestyle, and how to do so in a lucrative way that doesn’t create an endless cycle of stress and ultimately - failure.
In this article, I’m sharing my story with you and asking for your feedback as I take the next big step in creating a small Ebook about my personal success story of how I self-educated to be able to work online from anywhere. And why you can do the same!
Hope you enjoy and feel inclined to leave a comment!
Thanks so much ~ happy end of summer everyone, wherever you are :)
