20 Reasons We’re Going

Moving to a place many see as undesirable is one of our top 20 reasons for going.
Big Sur, CA

We thought it might be helpful for our families and friends (and us) if we made a list of the top 20 reasons why we’re doing this. We know that there will be many questions, concerns, doubts and even criticism at first. We’re prepared for that. This is a very different way to live life and some people aren’t comfortable with different. But if we can help in the process by making lists that will explain and help the people we love most understand, well then we’ll do it! 

20 Reasons Why We’re Going (in no order):

Big Sur, CA.

1. We want to create something bigger than us.
2. We want to leave this planet knowing that we made a change for the better.
3. We want to start our own business and work for ourselves.
4. We can afford to live abroad, actually live more comfortably abroad than here in California because the cost of living in Nicaragua is much lower.
5. To dedicate 100% of our time to the business that will allow us to live the life we want.
6. An adventure of a lifetime.
7. It allows us to be fully independent.
