How to QUIT YOUR JOB and Homestead

How to QUIT YOUR JOB and Homestead

Find out how to QUIT your job and start a homestead. In 2015, we both quit our 9 to 5 corporate jobs and traded them in for a simple, homesteading lifestyle. We explain what we did to prepare to quit our jobs, how we earn an income on the homestead, and how you can do it too.

How to Quit Your Job and Homestead
1) Get out of debt or reduce your debt to a minimum
2) Start a savings account
3) Stop spending money. Grow or produce what you can yourself
4) Use your skills and creativity to start one or several home businesses. You may have to supplement with part-time jobs until you can get those businesses up and running, but having little to no debt and expenses will allow you to be able to do just about anything
