Lame Introductions!

What’s up people!

Hopefully you’ve read the About Us section by now so there shouldn’t be a need for introductions.  If not, check it out! But if you’re lazy (like us), we’ll save you the trouble. We are Joel and Riah, just 2 ordinary people with average paying jobs striving to do not-so-average things.

Our new lives started when we moved from Hawaii to Oregon in January 2017 and getting ENGAGED a few months later. On the horizon, we’re planning our once-in-a-lifetime wedding and plan to travel the world soon after… all while having very little debt on less than a six-figure combined income.

In this blog, we will be sharing our life adventure of how we moved across the ocean on our own, how we’re saving money on a kick-ass wedding (you’d want to stay tuned to find out our plans), and how we’re planning our arduous journey towards financial independence. A play on words on Joel’s (and soon-to-be Riah’s) last name, we hope to use this blog to “undress” the secrets to life. By no means are we financial experts or claim ourselves to be.  We are just like you (or maybe dumber, lol)!  We also have a lot of learning to do as we work towards our goals!

In closing, we welcome you to our life!  We look forward to sharing our journey with you and hope you find some of these tips, tricks, and advice useful in your everyday lives!
