Hey there – I’m kudy. I am 35 years old, and I quit my job in April 2018 to try a self-employed gap year on the road where I can hopefully better align my life my tenets of financial well being – I hope you follow along!

For the past 6 years I’ve hell bent on living below my means and saving my income to gain financial freedom. Now that I have some money squirreled away, I am starting to shift my thinking and experiment more with a more flexible life. I strive to live a balanced and simple life with a lack of typical American consumption and indebtedness.

Here you will find my musings about financial independence, lifestyle design, and entrepreneurship. I’m certainly not a financial guru, so don’t expect excessive amounts of sage advise or too many life changing articles – instead, I will write most frequently about my own trials and triumphs as I find happiness and wealth in this short and exciting life.
