Quit my job? “That’s stupid,” Kim Anderson told her husband, Cressel.
But she eventually did quit, and it turned out to be a really smart move. Together the couple paid off $93k in debt in less than 2 years, setting themselves up for a life of “financial flexibility.”
They did it through a combination of conscious spending, creative side hustles, and having a clear goal in mind. And perhaps what’s more exciting is what that new time freedom has allowed: starting a family, starting new businesses, and most recently even “retiring” Cressel from his engineering job.
In this inspiring episode, Kim and Cressel break down their path to getting out of the rat race, which I think will get your gears turning on how to do the same.
