(VIDEO) Why I Left California and Moved Out of Los Angeles

After 15 years in California, I moved out of Los Angeles, California, and I left for the suburbs of Denver, Colorado to transform the way we lived. In this video, I share why we left Los Angeles and California, what made us decide to move, how our lives have changed in 2020, and the pros and cons of moving to Colorado from California. I was born in California and still love a lot of things about my home state, but after a while, it stopped making sense for us. It didn't fit our lifestyle and financial goals anymore. After moving out of California, we were able to pay off over $80,000 of debt, buy two houses, and put ourselves on the path to financial independence. Leaving California was one of the best decisions of my adult life, so if you've been thinking of making the move yourself in 2020 or beyond, I hope this video helps.
