The cost of living on the East and West Coast is absolutely INSANE.
I recently saw a CNN article about a man who commutes 4 hours and 140 miles every day to avoid paying for rent in San Francisco. The situation in San Francisco has even been deemed a human rights violation by the United Nations.
There is so much tech talent out there - some with long commutes, some living in tents and some living with 5 roommates.
Meanwhile, the Middle of the country is becoming an incubator for startups and tech companies - whose employees can afford a home, raise a family and enjoy a low cost of living.
A 4 hour commute given a five-day workweek is about 43 full days on the road per year.
Imagine having an extra 43 days put into your year.
West Coasters - if you’re ready to create a more sustainable life, contact me anytime.
Midwesterners - if you ever gave thought about moving out West to join the tech boom, think again.
