There's nothing worse than feeling stuck. Stuck at a job you hate. Stuck in a city you don't want to be in. Stuck in a lifestyle that just doesn't feel right.
But when you're drowning in debt , it's easy to feel that way. That's how Adam Baker and his wife felt upon the birth of their first child—burdened with a lot of consumer debt and stuff they really didn't need. So, they made a tough decision, sold nearly all of their things to pay off their debt, then spent a year traveling abroad as a family, writing the successful blog Man vs. Debt along the way.
And while their decision may seem a little drastic for some, the lessons can apply to anyone dealing with debt or just feeling trapped in the life they're living. In this video, Baker encourages us all to rethink our ideas about what success looks like and what we really need to live fulfilling lives.
