Livin' My Dream!!

Hi, my name is Rick McCarthy.  I am in my mid-fifties and have spent over half my life working in retail management.  I plan to spend the rest of my life doing work that I am passionate about, traveling, and experiencing what life has to offer.

My wife Lisa and I have just started our pursuit of a minimalist lifestyle.  We have reduced the clutter in our home, paid off most of our debt, and reduced our monthly expenses by eliminating unnecessary purchases.  Our goal is to reduce our possessions and expenses so we can live a location independent life while making a living online.

Through this blog we hope to share with our readers the details of our journey to achieve the life we’ve dreamed about, and resources from people who have inspired us by their example.   We also hope to meet others who are curious about how they can change their lives and live their future now.

I readily accept comments and please feel free to share your experiences with me and my readers.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

  1. Hey Rick,

    Like you, I’m a fan of Chris, Tammy, Corbett, Leo, et. al. but most of them are young and childless. (I know Leo has 6 kids. Not sure how old he is.) I wondered if there were any “mid-life minimalists” out there so I googled it and found your site.

    Nice to meet you!

    I’ve subscribed to your blog now and look forward to keeping up with you. I will turn 50 this year. I have 2 kids in college and simplifying our lives is a little more complicated at this stage in the game. But my wife and I are giving it a shot!

    Godspeed to you and your family.

    • Gene, Thanks you so much for your comment. It is a tougher job for us mid-lifers to simplify. My hope is that we can use this blog to share experiences and ideas. Keep me posted on how your journey is going and feel free to share with my readers.

      Godspeed to you and yours also.
