Without Bound (Documentary) Perspectives on Mobile Living 043
There are people who like money, and people who like things.
Carrie and I watched a documentary called Without Bound – Perspectives on Mobile Living (Click the link or watch the doc below)
The doc included interviews with a few people who live on the road full time. Cars, vans, trailers, and RVs mostly.
I loved the mentality on money, possessions, and freedom that these people have. They think differently, that’s for sure. None of these folks are pursuing the Standard American Dream. They have their own dream. Actually, it’s more like their own personal version of The American Dream.
Each person who was interviewed was asked about money. To live on the road full time you just have to think about and approach money differently. Most of them only spend between $500 – $1,000 a month!
I loved what they had to say about money, possessions, freedom and how they impact each other.
One quote that Carrie and I discuss in this episode goes like this…
I find there’s two sorts of people – people who like money, and people who like things. The ones who have the things don’t have any money, and the people who like the money don’t have a lot of things. I’d rather have the money than the stuff. Because money buys me freedom. freedom of choices, freedom of movement, freedom to do what I want to do.
So, what about you…
How do you see the relationship between money, things, and freedom?
