Ah yes, One Modern Couple. The “About Us”. Who are we? What do we offer? Why the heck should you care?
The Beginning – How We Met
It was in a crowded warehouse. Boxes piled high on either side of us. We were introduced at work and as we reached out to shake hands our eyes met. Carolann would like to say the rest is history, and perhaps it was. It didn’t take us long to realize we had a lot in common. After a few weeks, filled with daily chats at breaks and lunch, we started dating.
Just as quick as our romance began, so did the strengthening of our relationship. We moved in together shortly after and continued our daily 9-5 lives. We both knew that this was not what either of us wanted. Saving for a mortgage to buy a house, continuing the dreary upward climb within our companies, and creating that picture-perfect white-picket fence life was not for us.
Instead, we used the Budget Jar Method and saved for those long-weekend trips, like when we took A weekend in New Brunswick, those regular road trips we would make whenever we could, 10 tips for a long weekend road trip, and of course, those 2 weeks of vacation we anxiously awaited each year like when we went to Melia resorts in Cuba.
At first, there was no real plan. We knew we wanted to change our lifestyle. We wanted to find ways to make an income so that we could come and go as we please but we really didn’t have an idea of how to go about doing it. It wasn’t until Macrae started an interest in websites, buying and creating, researching and learning, that a plan started to slowly piece together. We bought and created other sites, a few travel-related, and learned from the back-end what went into it. We took courses and workshops, attended seminars and classes and soaked up as much information as we could.
We soon realized the potential we had in front of us. Here was the solution to our problem: we could work online from virtually anywhere, while sharing our stories & tips from around the world… provided there was internet.
And so, to make a long story short…
