    • Self-Improvement

Welcome to the Fit Rich Life Podcast. A show all about mastering Money, Fitness & Life.
 
In today’s special guest episode, I get to chat with Lauren and Steven Keys from Trip of a Lifestyle. 
 
This couple vacationed their way to over $1 million net worth. This included a 6-month honeymoon trip to Hawaii, a 7-month trip to visit every single national park in the U.S., a 3-month trip to Australia, and a bunch more extended trips.

In this episode, you will learn about:
 
[00:00-11:05] Lauren & Steven Keys share the ‘ramen noodle’ story. 
 
[11:06-25:48]  Frugal living and saving for extended vacations - This is how Lauren and Steven got to visit every single national park in the U.S. during a 7-month trip.
 
[25:49-39:03]  Optimizing income strategies, developing more skills and monetizing them to fund your adventures. 
 
[39:04-54:42] Journey to financial independence: strategies and insights.
 
[54:43-1:09:31] Efficient fitness tracking and cost-effective car transactions.
 
[1:09:32-]  The power of kindness in life 



Key quotes:
 
“I think that what made a huge difference was being on the same page about it. We both wanted to see that number increase and it was tangible.” - Lauren Keys.
 
“Being financially independent gives you this new perspective. Instead of designing a business around how do I ring the cash register on day one and get people to pay me, it’s how do I design a business that creates the life I want. And if it works, well that’s great! It’s a win-win. And if it doesn’t work, that’s fine too, because we’re good money-wise and we don’t need the money anyway.” - Steven Keys
 
“I’m actually buying my freedom. I’m spending my money every month on freedom. That is so much more exciting than the deprivation mindset.” - Justin David Carl
