Bob and Fara Grim quit the 9-to-5 grind to Travel the World on a $100 a day budget. To do this they needed to make a plan. Bob was working as a Software Developer and Fara was in the Telecom industry so they used their two incomes to save every penny to prepare for their launch.
This conversation is a continuation from one 6 months ago when they emailed into the show detailing their pending ripcord and how the podcast encouraged them to go nomadic. We added a ‘pulling the ripcord’ segment with them at the end of episode #56 and you can check it out here.
They carefully planned everything and most importantly how they were going to pay for it. They estimated that they were going to spend $100/day while traveling so they developed a mantra that gave them a gut check every time they were thinking about spending money.
That mantra set them up to be temporarily retired in their early 40s and have enough money to travel on while they discover and create their next income streams.
We catch up to Bob and Fara in Ireland, 6 months into their travels, to get the lowdown on what they’ve discovered so far and what happened to their $100 a day travel budget.
