About Me






Hi! I’m Brittany.

I’m a freelance writer, blogger, and an advocate for personal freedom. I understand what it’s like to be frustrated because money and student debt seem to be keeping you from the life you want.

But I’m here to show you that it is possible.

We don’t have to put our dreams on hold while we sit back and pay off a debt that seems un-payable.

I entered college with a passion to change the world and left with a degree in Spanish & International Affairs and a completely different perspective.

But I was also left with a pretty hefty bill to pay.

The thought of sitting in a job I hated and doing the same thing every day just to pay off my loans was killing me. And I wasn’t about to have the spirit beaten out of me so young.


I decided I wouldn’t do it. I decided to take control of my life because it’s too short to spend wasting away in an office.

Now, I’m 24 years old and living a location-independent lifestyle in a foreign country.

How did I get here?

Three months after graduating, I found an English-teaching job in Colombia. I fell in love with the country so much I ended up staying! But I hated the job.

That’s when I decided to try something else.

I took the plunge with almost no savings to back me up. And I was determined to make it work.

And guess what? I did! (But not without some sacrifice and hard work).

I remember that when I was lost and trying to decide what to do with my life, I couldn’t find any blogs that identified with my debt-filled situation.

So I created my own. This blog is my way of sharing my experiences with you so that you can do the same!
