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.
