    How to Focus with a Life Planning Retreat

    Wanda He and Eric Yu both work in big tech; but after a weekend life-planning retreat, they set a goal of making $30k per month quasi-passively by 2030.
    Guest Biography
    Wanda is currently an Associate Product Marketing Manager at Google & Eric is an Android Engineer on the Instagram Stories team. As a couple, they’re working together to generate $30k per month by 2030 in alternate income streams (mostly passive).
    2 months ago, they decided to do a weekend life planning retreat to understand where they wanted to be 10 years from now. During that retreat, it became increasingly clear that family is #1. To enable a lifestyle where they wouldn’t have to trade off family against work, Wanda and Eric realized that they needed income outside of their 9-5 jobs. During that weekend, they brainstormed all the ways they could start building out additional income streams.
    Over the last 2 months, they’ve executed on their vision by:
    Buying a house and remodeling it  Designing the house specifically for AirBNB Making over 2x the mortgage in their first month on AirBNB while living in the guest house out back (completely eliminating their rent costs)
