In Part 1 of this interview (Episode 566), you met Scott & Susan, a couple who accidentally retired in their 30s and has spent the last two decades traveling the world in a sailboat and the US in a motorhome.

In today's episode, we discuss Scott's small business, Techie 4 Hire. If you have any interest in developing a location-independent business, pay attention to Scott's story of his own business. Also pay attention to some of the other types of businesses mentioned in this interview.

Finally, we discuss a bit of the technology of mobile internet connectivity. For many of us, our ability to reliably connect to the internet from the road can open up a location-independent lifestyle.

Enjoy!

On today's show, I bring you an interview with Scott and Susan. I think of them as "accidental early retirees."

About two decades ago they bought a sailboat, intending to travel for a year. They wound up spending a decade sailing the world together. And then for the last decade, they've traveled all around the USA, living full-time in their RV.

In Part 1 of this interview we discuss their story--the plan, the money, and the lifestyle.

In Part 2 of this interview we will discuss Scott's small business and the technology that they use that keeps them on the road full-time.

Enjoy!
