Welcome to Episode 24 of Self-Sufficient Life! So, here’s a question for you: What do you visualize when you hear the phrase homesteading, self-sufficient or self-reliance?

I’m willing to bet that many of you visualize a natural setting.

Perhaps a loving family working hard together.

Listen to The Accidental Farmers on Audible.

Something between Little House on the Prairie and The Waltons, for those of you old enough to know those television shows.

We often picture a family living off the land, tending to crops and animals while being…well…self-sufficient.

But…this ain’t the 1800s. This is the digital age.

In this episode I’ll define what modern homesteading really is, and dispel some myths surrounding the notion of homesteading.

I also share why I walked away from big-time corporate America, trading in the boardroom for the barnyard.

And I share several tips on how to start homesteading and becoming more self-reliant, even if you’re cramped in an urban apartment. Things you can do right now to start down your path to self-sufficiency.

So, if you’re looking for ways to tips and inspiration to become more self-sufficient, you won’t want to miss this. So grab some coffee and pull up a chair!
