The mix of HP'ers is interesting - some folks just starting out, saving for a house at the right price. Some full-time renters. Some bubble sitters who cashed out at the peak. Some IT pros making bank and saving it. Some business owners. And some consultants, authors, retirees and freelancers.
What I want is for people who've found a better way - who don't work for the man, who don't work 60 hours a week, who don't commute to work, who don't spend 70% of their income on housing and taxes, who don't spend their lives in one place, who don't stress about their next paycheck and who above all don't work in a cubicle - for these folks to tell their stories.
There is some new thinking out there when it comes to work and life and happiness.
Geo-arbitrage is one idea - downsize your life, slow it down, save, spend less money and live somewhere more desirable (thank you high-speed internet)
Living globally is another idea - globalization, technology and democracy have opened up the world, borders have come down, and it's now possible to essentially live anywhere you'd like to live in this world.
And renting - not being tied down to a home and a place, having a mobile career, and consuming your shelter versus "owning" your shelter, is probably the most radical idea, but one worth exploring.
Do you like your job? Do you like your life? Do you want more? Do you know how to get it?
Have a good chat. And a good life of course.
