Hi! We’re Diana and Ian. And this is our ‘road less traveled’ life.
Midway through our twenties, we were living “normal” lives. Working 5 or more days a week. Building careers. Paying off student loans. Then one day we realized this ISN’T the dream. We weren’t the bosses of our own lives.
So we decided to throw caution to the wind and put our hard-working efforts into dreams and passions of our own. To take the road less traveled — in life. We saved some money. Sold our stuff. Quit our jobs. And set out to explore the world while we began learning how to succeed as nomadic entrepreneurs.
And it worked. In two years, we built a sustainable, location-independent life. It’s been an amazing journey, and now we want to help others make it happen, too. You only have one life to live. So follow your dreams. Take the road less traveled. And join our journey here on North to South.
