You want to travel more; you want to have more freedom. How? One of the things that becoming a remote worker allows you to do is escape the rat race. Start living below your means. STOP caring about "keeping up with the Joneses (or Kardashians, for that matter)."
Remote work makes the social climb irrelevant and unmasks it for what it is - something Naval Ravikant calls a stupid game where you win stupid social prizes.
