Erran and I decided to leave our full time jobs, sell our house, & everything we owned to start traveling 8 years ago, & it was the best decision we’ve ever made!⁣
(Sonographer + IR Tech Travel Team)⁣

Traveling is a very unique lifestyle and it offers a ton of perks...⁣

We've used traveling as a way to pay off debts & save money much faster then we could have when we were working FT..⁣
+ we have so much more FREEDOM to take time off to travel for fun...(We were gearing up to take a year off to travel the world, right before Covid19 hit )⁣

If you're interested in exploring the idea of traveling and want to know more about the opportunities we have as travelers....⁣

We are going live tomorrow at 8pm EST in our FB Group to have a fun/inspiring/informative conversation on the unique opportunities we have as healthcare travelers!⁣

We’re going to focus on the lifestyle perks of being a traveler: i.e⁣
>We get to pay off debt faster⁣
>We get to save money faster…bc we MAKE MORE MONEY!⁣
>We get to Take more time off to travel for fun… no more of this 2 weeks off a year nonsense!!⁣
>Or we can choose to work more, If we’re in a saving or paying off debt season..either way we get to decide what our work life looks like each year!⁣
>It’s easier for us to downsize & simplify our lives…The less we have the more FREEDOM we have!!⁣

We are going to chat about all of the above & share some of our own travel stories in the training tomorrow night!!⁣

If any of this interests you, then def come hang with us!⁣
The training will happen in our FB Group⁣
Travel Life: Freedom In Scrubs⁣
