Now we’ve all thought about.  We’ve all dreamed about it – particularly after a crappy shift at work.  But what makes someone actually go ahead and quit their jobs, as opposed to following the more “sensible route” of staying on the go-to-work, come-home-from work, go-to-work again treadmill.

Well in this episode, you’re going to hear from two people who have done just that.  After working some pretty crazy and long hours at the recent Commonwealth Games here on the Gold Coast, Alison and Mike Bareham from Nerang in Queensland, have thrown in their jobs to travel around Australia (and the world) at the tender ages of 50 something.

In this podcast you will learn:

-The catalyst that inspired them to not wait “until retirement”
-Why having a mortgage didn’t stop them from following their dream
-Why working hard to accrue a lot of “stuff” doesn’t actually being us happiness
