Me-in-a-Nutshell

Cube to Coffee is where I write up everything about this idea of quitting my job, and sharing how you can do it too. I’m Valerie. I’m a 30-something, married, with one dog, living in suburban Utah, trying to quit my day job to live the freedom lifestyle. Yes, I’m one of those people. Damn this generation. I blog about my goals, budget, mindset, and how I’m creating another source of income independent of the 9-to-5, while working my 9-to-5.

What’s the Freedom Lifestyle?

As Tim Ferriss says, “Gold is getting old. The New Rich  are those who abandon the deferred-life plan and create luxury lifestyles in the present using the currency of the New Rich: time and mobility. This is an art and a science we will refer to as Lifestyle Design.” Freedom Lifestyle is just another phrase for the same thing. Screw the 9-to-5, time is precious and I want to live it all under my terms.

Let’s see, where do I start about me. I’ve been a wantrepreneur since I was little. I grew up as a military brat and landed on Utah in my mid-twenties. I enjoy traveling, am in love with Japan, and no, I don’t speak Japanese. I have a B.S. degree in Psychology, emphasis on B.S. And now striving for an Economics degree in grad school. (Yes, I’m still in school.) As a married person without kids, we have a dog that is uber spoiled.  I spend my free time watching Netflix, listening to podcasts, buying books I’ve yet to read, and playing board games with my tight-knit circle of family/friends.

Outside of this, I’m brutally honest. I’m an ISTJ personality, and yes, I am a believer in Myers-Briggs test.
