How do you create a life where work is optional? Are you interested in early retirement but not a fan of super frugality? On today’s podcast, I have Tanja Hester, creator of the Our Next Blog, who retired early at the age of 38 to talk about her new book, Work Optional, where she answers those questions and more.  

In this episode we discuss:

  • The three stages of work optional living; full early retirement, semi-retirement & career intermission
  • The concept of Hedonic Adaptation and how it impacts the way we spend money
  • Why we should all have a money mission statement
  • Tanja’s genetic disability and how it impacts her drive to live her best life
  • Different options for health care coverage for early retirees plus so much more

I’m also excited because I’m giving away a copy of Tanja’s new book, Work Optional, to lucky listeners of the podcast. You can enter to win by clicking here
