Barter for a Granite Countertop #121 In this episode Becky talks about Granite, Bartering, she talks about “The Creative Habit” by Twyla Tharp, and Becky reads your letters. Joey Mullen Hi Becky! My name is Joey and I am from New Orleans, by way of Northeast Arkansas. I was so inspired by you and your success at the homesteading lifestyle that instead of going out and getting a mortgage or taking out a loan, I found an alternative way to earn the money needed for me to buy my own property and build my own home. I have moved to China to teach English with zero teaching experience and zero qualifications as a teacher other than being a native English speaker. It was a huge change. I have been here for 8 months now and I am so happy to say that with the amount of money they pay American’s and pretty much any native English speaker I have been able to save enough already to purchase an acre and a half of land in Southwest Florida. I have not seen the property other than in photos, videos, and google maps, but it is heavily wooded like yours was and I am looking forward to saving a little more money here in China then coming home to my property and starting my own homestead. I want to thank you so much for inspiring me to think outside the box so that I can make my dreams a reality. I am curious about your pigs and goats. We have seen the outcome of raising your own pigs for meat, but I am interested in more of the regular day to day activity and chores that come along with raising both goats and pigs. Thank you so much again for being such a great inspiration.
