Becky and Noah are in the first half of their gap gear, a pre-FI road trip around America.
They didn’t grow up rich, but they carefully planned out their life to avoid student debt. Both earned the same Chick Evans Caddie Scholarship to Purdue University that paid full tuition and came with housing. They made smart career choices earning employable, in-demand degrees that allowed them to earn high salaries.
After discovering FI on Reddit, they made a few tweaks to their lifestyle, quit their jobs, and hit the open road.
This episode shows that financial independence isn’t just a pipe dream, and while Becky and Noah aren’t there yet, they are well on their way.
