You're excited about the whole "sell it all and sail off into the sunset" thing but . . .
You’re overwhelmed by the thought of actually getting rid of all your stuff. You just want to skip to the part where you’re anchored in a beautiful harbor in the Bahamas! Who doesn’t?!
Downsizing for a Life Afloat, a 4-week course by cruiser/author Chris DiCroce, will walk you step-by-step through the downsizing process and give you the resources you need to downsize your entire home immediately -- without being overwhelmed.
Plus this course will more than pay for itself by teaching you how to get more money for the things you sell and reducing what you'll put in a storage unit.Learn More Enroll Now
