98 - Sarah Li Cain

The Personal Finance Show

Sarah Li Cain wants you to be open to opportunities and to make independence a priority. Sarah was born in Hong Kong, grew up in Canada, has lived in Australia, South Korea and China, and is currently in the US. Sarah worked mainly as a teacher, but the key to her survival and success was to be open to opportunities along the way. Knowing that she couldn’t be a teacher in the US if she moved there from China with her husband and new son, Sarah looked into ways to make money online. Sarah ended up finding freelance writing as something she could do from anywhere in the world and focused on personal finance writing. Today, Sarah makes over $100,000 a year working part-time from home, creating content for financial brands and online publications. It’s not easy to create in-demand content and get paid for it, but her desires to be independent and to be free to spend her time the way she wants, keep her on track. Sarah is also the host of the Beyond the Dollar podcast, where she has deep and honest conversations about how money affects our well-being. Sarah joined me from Jacksonville, Florida to share her personal finance story.NEXT EPISODE99 - Beth MacMillan Click here to book a FREE 15-minute personal finance consultation with Beau Humphreys, Personal Finance Coach Click here to become a patron of The Personal Finance Show via Patreon To register for my next available personal finance webinar click here.

My Journey Teaching in China to Freelance Writing in the US | Sarah Li Cain

Fire Drill

Want a career that involves travel? Teaching offers exactly that.Sarah was born a traveller and knew she wanted to have a career that took her across the globe ever since she was a kid. She went into teaching and moved to China, where the low cost of living made it easy to save and travel. She then grew her side hustle of freelance writing to her full time gig and moved to the US with her husband and baby boy.You'll love her story.We also chat about... Advice for others interested in teaching overseas What it was like to give birth overseas Teaching overseas in China How she planned moving to the US How she grew her freelance writing side hustle to her full time job The importance of setting boundaries Her current FI goalsEnjoy this chat with Sarah, and please subscribe to us in iTunes if you enjoyed it!Show notes and links from today's episode Sarah's podcast: Beyond the Dollar Sarah on Instagram Western Union Moneygram TransferWise FinconKey takeaways from our chat with Sarah1 - Teaching makes more travel possibleSarah knew ever since she was a kid that she wanted to travel as an adult. So to make it possible, she went directly into a career that not allows you to travel, but also pays for your housing and even flight tickets: teaching. She says the most important is to have some experience, and then simply get in contact with a recruitment agency that'll help you find jobs overseas. And so she decided to go to China.2 -The hard part of going freelanceDuring her time in China, Sarah was building a hefty emergency fund for her move to the US. She also had a newborn - which her and her husband had to plan carefully for. She was also working on her side hustle of freelance writing, eventually replacing her teacher salary. After moving to the US, she tells us that the hardest part was the isolation. She was adjusting to motherhood, to the US and working freelance online. Once she moved to a big city she says things got much better.3 - The importance of setting boundariesShe learnt how to balance freelance work, family time and her own time by clearly setting boundaries. She's learnt to negotiate boundaries with her family and re-assessed her priorities so she knew which clients to keep and which took too much of her time. By making sure she's organising her time efficiently and doing what is most important, she's found a way to be balanced. The results: her freelance income has doubled!Questions? Like or dislike?
