Ready for a change, Seattle-based Evan and his wife bought one-way tickets to Argentina, and Evan went freelance full-time.

That’s a sizeable change. Especially with 4 daughters under 10 in tow.

Evan had never been to Argentina, but he did have some experience being freelance. He’d done it on the side of permanent jobs for years, always with the idea that he’d freelance full-time one day.

Evan chats to Steve about relocating his family, going freelance full-time in a new country without a financial safety net, and finding his way with the tough stuff, like accounting and work-life balance.
