4 Reasons To Quit Your Job And Start Living Off Grid

by: Jeric Danao

Have you ever felt stuck in life and in a cycle of working just to pay bills? Off grid living may just be the solution to this problem. Here are 4 reasons why you should quit your job and start living off grid.

Be Your Own Boss

Even when you have reached the top of the corporate ladder and become the CEO of your own company, you will find that stress also climbs the ladder with you. You could end up having more responsibilities than you can control. This is not how you can be your own boss. Being your own boss means being able to live the way you want to; spending time with friends and family and going on vacation whenever you want to.

This is dream for many people stuck in the working class. But that is because they are tied down by the idea that they need money in order to live. The off-grid lifestyle has proven otherwise and many people have shown that it’s feasible. Chat with one of these brave individuals to ask them how they do it.

Debt Free Life

Debt is the biggest monkey that you have or could have on your back. You will find that it will force you to work for hours just to survive but not to live. People end up in endless cycles of paying rent and just getting by. This rent only gets larger as your needs become more dire, especially if you are taking care of a growing family.

However, you can avoid this if you can build a house that can run off the grid on a land that you own. There will be no debts to pay because no landlord can impose rent on you. All the money you earn could go to your passions and helping your family with their needs.

No Bills

While maintaining a good full-time job can pay the bills, do you really need to define your life by working just to pay bills until it’s time to retire? The reality is most jobs are like this and only a few find jobs that they truly enjoy. But the only problem is that electricity, housing, water, fuel and other needs are all provided by companies that you need to pay in order to get these needs.

There are alternatives to paying a company to provide these for you. Off the grid techniques include having a private source of water, disposing your own waste, and using solar panels and wind mills. All of these can help you to live without being tied down to paying companies monthly.

Sharpen Your Skills

While off the grid living may insinuate that you don’t need money anymore, this is not true; you still need to earn some to sustain yourself and your family. You don’t have to aim for a big income since your expenses will be very low.

Thus, you don’t need to have a job. In fact, you can earn just enough from your hobbies. This could be anything from busking to creating paintings and sculptures. Whatever it is, turn it into a living. Not only will be enough to get by, but you get to hone your skills in your passions.

Key Takeaway

The off the grid life means that you can cut your expenses such as debts and rent. Because of this you no longer need to be tied down to a job just to pay for bills and get stuck in that style. You can choose to stay at your job while living off the grid so that all the money you earn can go to your passions or quit your job and turn your passions into your means of life. Off the grid life gives you more time to do what you really want to do and spend your time more meaningfully.
