I left the US in 2019, and my business is freelanced based (self employed). I’ve lived among 18 countries so far and visited an additional 18 or so.
I actually grew up nomadic so I lived all over the Us, moving every 9-12 months. Twice I owned homes for a couple years but traveled a lot. The last several years I lived in the Us, I was spending 90k to 120k, annually. Now I average 43k annual spending, living like a Queen, and utilizing geoarbitrage, FEIE tax exclusion, nominal cost world wide health insurance, minimalism, etc. … pairing all of that with increased income from growing my business and overall decreased expenses, I was able to save radically and invest. I reached my CoastFIRE number much faster too.
I love living around the world. I learn so much and have met the most amazing people. Once you get into the Nomad and Expat circles, you’ll realize there’s a ton of us out here.
