There are so many new listeners that I thought it would be worthwhile to talk about our tagline: Helping you build the life you choose on your terms. Lots of people think this podcast is about homesteading, about cooking good food,  about liberty and freedom – and it is. We do tons on starting and growing your own business, side hustles and more. But when you dig right into things a little deeper, you will discover the LFTN is about choosing the life you want to live, then setting yourself up to go there. The life I choose to live is in the country, but this approach works in the city and all over the world. The hardest part of doing it is accepting that you CAN do it.

Today is a Thought of the Walk (TOTW) day and I had a good one ready on champagne and hookers, but with so many folks panicking about the corona virus, I decided to do a show on how to prepare for the coronavirus in 7 days if you are not already prepared.

This comes from the point of view that panic is not needed and I hope that some of the tangible things I suggest with help people be in a better place should this event impact you, while not spending a bunch of money on things that you will never use.

I wanted to take on an issue we have sort of glossed over lately: Debt payoff. When I was talking with Beau a few weeks ago, I realized that as much as I say you need to be debt free to truly be free to live the life you want, we haven’t discussed the how of this. Then I was chatting with a friend who is paying off debt and she started asking me really pointed questions about my decision to pay off a second mortgage instead of the rest of my consumer debt.
