The Merch Mom joins us for a conversation about striking out in the entrepreneurial spirit both in career and location.
She moved her family down to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico seeking more freedom and a more comfortable lifestyle. She also has a burgeoning online business via Amazon Merch that allows her to take her income with her wherever she goes.
I recommend that you listen at 1.5x or 2x speed….makes it flow better because with all of our rambling regular speed feels like it drags….hahah
Follow her on her recently launched new podcast chronicling her journeys that you can find at www.theMerchMom.com. It’s about parenting while working from home, productivity etc.
Check out her T-Shirt designs on Amazon here.

We cover a wide range of questions like:
Why did you first consider moving abroad and what were you hoping to achieve?
What went into building up the inertia to make the move, how much prep did you have to accomplish before you made the jump?
Do you ever really feel ready?
Do you need to have it all figured out first?
How do you earn a living? How do you find a place to live?
Do you need an income that travels with you?
Any mistakes you have learned from that others can avoid as a result of your experience?

We touched on CPS and the bill paying states to “protect” children by taking them into the custody. Of course this makes a perverse incentive and a moral hazard where the taking of children from parents becomes subsidized. Which is how you get more of a thing.

Robert and I analyze popular movies from a Rothbardian/AnarchoCapitalist perspective.
We use movies as a starting point for people who may not be familiar with this way of thinking. Discussion of the plot and decisions that characters make in relation to morality and violations of the non-aggression principle are our bread and butter.
We also will highlight and discuss any themes or lessons from Austrian Economics that we can glean from the film.
The point is to show what anarchy actually is with instances that are presented in film.
We publish at least once per week; and occasionally will do specials surrounding holidays or events (elections/olympics) and have guests.
