About Today’s Guest, Adam Baker:

In Adam’s words…

Adam BakerIn 2008, after the birth of Milligan, Courtney and I decided to sell everything we owned, pay off our consumer debt, and spend a year traveling abroad as a family. We began sharing our journey publicly in early 2009 – forming the community you see here today at .

We spent a year leading up to our trip selling all of our possessions (down to two backpacks) and paying down $18,000 in consumer debt. In June 2009, we left for what was to be a year in Australia, but quickly turned into more mobile travels through Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, and finally back to Indiana.

In sharing our ups and downs in the areas of personal finance, consumerism, clutter, travel, minimalism, and passionate entrepreneurship – we realized that we aren’t alone in our desire to explore and grow. Fortunately, a community of like-minded people has emerged, contributed, and rallied together.
