From the FPS Founder:
How #WorkFromAnywhere Gave Me Time Freedom, Location Freedom & Financial Freedom
On the surface, heres how it sounds:
A story of how a successful young career woman ditched her high-paying, fast-paced corporate gig to live it up on the beaches of Central America.
And on the surface, that’s exactly what happened. I gave it all up – the money, the status… the mind-numbing tedium of 8-hours in an office with fluorescent lighting… Every. Damn. Day.
But, as always, there’s more (a lot more) to the story. See, I did it all for love. No, not the stereotypical romantic kind of love. Love for myself. I decided I loved me way more than I loved (tolerated) climbing some meaningless corporate ladder to a position “at the top.”
Along the way, I fell in love again. And again, and again. I fell in love with the reefs and shores of Belize. I fell in love with the dizzying freedom of not answering to anyone but me. I fell in love with the potential this new life provided – a new journey, a new career, a new perspective. But mostly, I fell in love with time freedom, location freedom & financial freedom (which came soon after).
And, as people in love are wont to do, I felt the need to share it. I knew if I could build a life that I loved – that fulfilled me as a professional, as a woman, as a human – I could help others do the same.
So here’s my story of how I gave up “living the dream” and started living life on my own terms.
Spoiler alert: I’m going to start in the here and now, because it’s pretty effing amazing.
And now we’re back at the beginning. What a long, strange trip it’s been – and I wouldn’t change a single moment of it.
What’s next in this story? Stick a bookmark in it, because there’s much, much more to come.
