We're Matt & Alli Owen and we're OBSESSED with teaching and coaching regular humans how to get out of debt and achieve financial freedom!
How did this become our lives?
Well, in 2015, we were both working as engineers in Bakersfield, California. We were about a year out of college and became disillusioned with the idea of working behind a desk for the next 44+ years.
Throw the pity party.
So, we started researching ways to retire early and discovered the FIRE (Financial Independence Retire Early) movement. After months of obsessive blog and book reading, we made our plan: we'd retire in 10 years (and never work again.)
Optimizing our expenses rapidly became our obsession.
Between house-hacking, insourcing, and saving like crazy, we ramped up our savings rate to 70% of our incomes. We were on track for early retirement by age 35!
*Cue Plot Twist*
Our mental health was suffering being in jobs that didn't connect to our purpose. As the savings cushion grew larger, so did our self-confidence. We'd started two businesses in our last year of work that were showing serious potential, so we decided to take the leap into full-time entrepreneurship as of April 2018, trusting that we'd make up for the lost few years of income along the way.
Soon after leaving our jobs, we hit the road in our big red campervan, traveling 10,000 miles in 4 months.
Well now we want to help you align your finances to your values so should a *plot twist* come up, you'll be ready, prepared, and able to take the leap.
Through online courses, free YouTube videos, a blog, and more, we help smart, hard-working people LIKE YOU, align their finances to their values.
If you're interested, we specialize in topics like healthy habits around money, decreasing expenses in unexpected ways, projecting your freedom date, and realistic budget creation.
