Michelle Chang: Unconventional Budget Accommodations
August 1, 2018 | Podcast
After getting married and working for a few years, Michelle and her husband, Jedd, joined the Peace Corps and served together for two years in rural Jamaica. They then tested out location independence while slowly building a freelance web services business, keeping expenses low through housesitting, work exchanges, and other unconventional accommodations. This budget-friendly approach continues to sustain and enrich their long-term travel lifestyle.
