Quitting corporate life

Late in 2017,  Sal Schmidt and Wayne Schmidt took three months of extended leave, a common practice at my then-age of 55.


While sitting at a bar in Frankfurt, we realised we had fallen into a rut.


Long gruelling hours, trying to live a life of consumption.


We returned to Australia and sold our trinkets (left five suitcases left at Sally's mum's house ).


To start living a slower life, of travel, less consumption of trinkets and capturing memories.


Two weeks later, our journey began; no jobs, two suitcases, and no plans.


Now six years into our digital nomad life, we've built a lifestyle business, working with some of the most inspiring individuals.


These words now have so much meaning.


The average life expectancy is 78 years.

While the retirement age is 65+.

So we work 45 years.

To enjoy maybe 13.
