It is insane just how many people are able to work from home these days. In a recent survey, it was said that around 43% of people have been able to at least do some of their work from home! This is huge! Obviously technology has played a huge role in making the work from home job more and more of a reality for people. Working a corporate job that allows you to occasionally work from home is a huge perk, but what if you don’t feel like you fit into the corporate world? There are so many things that stand in the way of people finding a work from home job that they qualify for. What a lot of people don’t know is that there are many work from home jobs available with little to no experience and you’re probably not going to see them advertised online! So let’s talk about how you can create your own legitimate work from home job with little to no experience.

For my husband’s 4oth birthday, we were lucky enough to spend a weekend in Minneapolis’s most luxurious and most booked hotel right in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, The Loews Hotel.

Although we are both Minnesota natives, we had yet to experience so many of the amazing attractions that draw people to Minneapolis every year. To get a glimpse into what we did, saw, and experienced on our trip check out my list of the 20 downtown Minneapolis attractions within walking distance of the Loews Hotel!
When we began our big downsize and my minimalist journey officially began, a big goal of mine was to allow more time, freedom and finances in order to travel. Instead of tending to a big house (or even a small house) I wanted to start branching out and seeing more of the world. I didn’t realize at the time just how much a minimalist lifestyle would allow this dream of mine to become a possibility. If you have dreams of traveling more let me fill you in on how adopting a minimalist lifestyle can give you the freedom to travel.
