Episode notes

#44: What does it mean to be semi-retired? Lauren Keys is semi-retired and covers her living expenses on a part-time income. She’s taken multiple mini-retirements on her path to financial independence, in order to travel and try out her ideal lifestyle. In this interview, Lauren talks to me about taking a net $0 honeymoon to Hawaii for 6 months, living the van life to travel to all of the United States national parks, and driving a Honda Civic from Florida to Alaska. 

In this episode, we discuss: 

  • How a career break can actually help your career
  • Creating a sustainable lifestyle of part-time work
  • Ways to save six-figures on two teacher’s salaries
