Episode 136. Retiring Before 40 in Mexico | Roshida Dowe, Shida's On The Loose

Roshida Dowe, founder of Shida’s On The Loose and Exodus Summit, is a career break coach who helps women leave jobs that don’t deserve them in order to live a life they love.

In 2019, she lost her job working as a consumer automotive finance lawyer in the California Bay Area. Instead of scrambling to find another job, she decided to take a year off to travel the world.

Six months in, she was the happiest she had ever been and decided she was done with the workforce, so she decided to retire instead. With $660,000 saved up in investments and equity, it was just what she needed to start her FIRE journey and the next chapter of her life in Mexico City.
