How We Afford Our Lifestyle

Hey, there. Mandy and Aaron here!

By now, you guys are probably wondering, “How in the world do two 20-somethings afford an off-grid, travel lifestyle in the United States?” This post is dedicated to answering this very question.

First, a little background…

We both have vast experience working in the medical industry. Whereas Aaron was most interested in the allopathic approach, however, I (Mandy) became most infatuated with the holistic/naturopathic approach. Our combined knowledge of health led us to the cannabis industry.

We moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, in June of 2017 and immediately got immersed in the industry. By January 2018, we decided we were ready to move on and wanted to found our business (details to come). However, we also wanted to wait for South Dakota (our home state) to vote on legalizing medical marijuana. That occurs in November of 2018.

To pass time, travel, minimize, and “work from home”, we down-sized and agreed to renovate our 1995 camper trailer, gifted to us by my parents. I (Mandy) still work as a freelance writer, so make extra income from that. But, the main move we made to afford our lifestyle was investing in cryptocurrencies, then trading through ADAS Fortress.


About ADAS Fortress

ADAS Fortress is an investment management company that is run by a team of trading experts who generate profits by buying and selling currencies, stocks, options, and commodities on the foreign exchange market. In other words, the experienced team trades cryptocurrencies (such as Litecoin, Bitcoin, and Ethereum), mainly in Asian countries to make you — and them — money.

As explained on the group’s website, “We employ a variety of trading techniques to achieve the set goals for the client.” The 2008 housing crisis hit the firm hard, but a bit of rebranding and hard work turned it around. Now, ADAS Fortress is a full-featured spot trading platform for the major cryptocurrencies and offers leveraged margin trading through its peer-to-peer funding market.

We recommend this platform a) because we are affiliates of ADAS Fortress and make money from helping others make money in a secure and simple way and b) have benefited immensely from investing.

Seriously — we invested our savings (100 percent all in!) and have made guaranteed weekly returns as a result. This is how we presently afford our lifestyle.

We just got back from a delightful getaway in Colorado. — definitely much-needed.

The amount we invested has tripled in a matter of months. This is what enabled us to leave Las Vegas, Nevada, six months earlier than planned, afford to renovate our 1995 camper (read more about that in a future post), and has allowed us to continue traveling as we save money through consulting, ADAS Fortress investment returns, and Mandy’s freelance writing.

It’s pretty awesome, and other people think so, as well:

Now, Why Bitcoin? 

I know, I know. “South Korea and India have banned Bitcoin — it’s going to crash soon!” That’s what the government and banks want you to think. In reality, cryptocurrencies are one of the greatest gifts to mankind, as they eliminate the need for a third-party system and are far more secure (as every transaction is recorded on a ledger all have access to) than the present dollar, backed by air.

There are other reasons to invest in cryptocurrencies…

1) Countries are moving towards cashless societies

Larger bank notes are being taken out of circulation. Why? Because money = control. Paper money is dangerous and puts people’s savings in jeopardy. Think about it this way: if your bank were to close its doors tomorrow, where would you be? This exact scenario has happened before and will happen again.

2) Cryptocurrencies are essentially decentralized people’s money

Money as we know it is short-lived. Fiat currencies are failing wide. We are already witnessing this with China challenging the U.S. dollar. Before long, China will launch its own cryptocurrency. When this occurs, a Trade War will begin. That’s why each of us needs to be invested in cryptocurrencies.

As one ADAS Fortress affiliate explained to me, half a century ago, people wouldn’t have believed we, humans, would rely on shiny, plastic cards to process money transactions. But yet, that’s what happening! In the same way, Bitcoin is the internet of money. And, it’s time to jump aboard.

“Bitcoin is the internet of money.”

3) Money is evolving

Did you know? Only 6 percent of the world’s entire population has stepped into cryptocurrency. It is new and different, and that is scary — we understand! But, what most people don’t realize is that it is the way forward.

What most people don’t realize is that the bank balance they currently check (anxiously, we might add) is in fiat currency, which is already in digital money. No one among us “civilians” can request to view our money with a local bank manager. Why? Because fiat currency is debt-based. It is made from fresh air and does not actually exist.

As human beings, we have to wake up and realize that the money we have all trusted so long has, in fact, had absolutely no value at all and is not backed by anything of value either. As a result, cryptocurrencies are not that big of a step forward.

4) You’re Hearing One Side from the Mainstream Media

  • South Korea is studying a crypto-license similar to New York’s BitLicense for exchanges. In this way, it is limiting the market and use of cryptocurrencies, but it isn’t banning them completely.
  • Thailand is now issuing a ban on Banks that prohibits them from investing or trading cryptocurrencies.
  • Microsoft is implementing a Blockchain ID verifications system because it is so incredibly secure.
  • Jay-Z is investing in cryptocurrencies, so is Richard Branson and Bill Gates.
  • Dubai (a free tax zone and the largest economic UAE state) just issued a license to a cryptocurrencies firm.

Other people are excited about cryptocurrencies. Are you?
