I enjoy looking for financial planning tips from odd corners of the world. Recently, I stumbled across the book Financial Freedom aFloat: How to Pocket a Paycheck in Paradise by Charles Tuller as I was browsing the finance section in my local library.

Written for the cruising community, the book lays out some specific ideas and strategies for sailors who either need or want to earn some money to be able to afford to stay out on the water for the long-term.

I’m most intrigued by the challenge of the problem: how do you live a “dream lifestyle” without a lot of money?

The answer is multi-fold:

  1. Own your shelter.
  2. Minimize your ongoing expenses.
  3. Work while you travel.

The last item is the most interesting to me right now.

How do you conveniently integrate work and life without feeling like an indentured servant? How do you earn and enjoy life at the same time?

The book does a good job of laying out some ideas. And, it gets better all the time. There are so many more options availalbe now in 2015 than there were in 2000, when the book was written.

Enjoy the ideas we draw and apply them to your own lifestyle–whether you’d like to cruise or not!

Enjoy!
