Life has more to offer those willing to change the recipe.

Jeremy Jacobson and Winnie Tseng retired in 2012 while still in their 30s to travel the world and start a family.

After 10 years of saving 70%+ of after-tax income their investment income finally started to pay all of their bills.

They then used their financial independence to enable location independence, and set off to see the world. Their 3-year-old son, Julian, has already been to 35 countries.

Through their award winning website Go Curry Cracker they help others who aim to retire early and/or travel the world, with exciting topics such as tax minimization, geographic arbitrage, travel hacking for free flights and hotels, and nomadic parenting.

Their site is viewed 150k+ times/month, and has been shared on Forbes, ABC World News Tonight, People Magazine, Money Magazine, BBC, CNBC, and more.
