Sunday is for Sharing is a weekly roundup of my favorite articles, videos, and podcasts I read, viewed, and listened to over the past week.
This week features a couple who quit their day jobs to live and travel full time in a van, a retail worker who maxes out her Roth IRA on a $20,000 yearly income, and much more. Enjoy!
My Favorite Video
Joe and Emilie both left well-established jobs to live full time in a Mercedes Sprinter van with their dog and travel around the country. I love how simple this couple lives and how everything they need to be happy fits neatly inside a van.

“Knowing that I could end up so happy and successful in life with very little luxury or stuff means I spent very little time trying to chase after things.”
“By leaving the 9-5, I have 100% control of my time/life, I hope to tackle 20 BIG dreams before I check out of this life.
“Every path, every decision, comes its own set of advantages and disadvantages. This is what makes personal finance so tricky. There are no right answers. There is only what’s right for you given what you want and what you’re willing to sacrifice.”

“I’d like to retire not at age 85! That would be cool.”

“Why do so many of my smartest friends – the people who should have the pick of the litter – seem stuck in jobs with the worst lifestyle?”
My Favorite Podcast
An interview with quadruple amputee Kyle Maynard on how he lives without limits, despite physical adversity. This podcast made me laugh more than I expected and I also learned a lot about the type of mindset that enables one to live with less fear.
“Dreams don’t have to manifest as you imagined. They just have to set you on a path because there is always a way.” –Kyle Maynard
