Julia is a German expatriate who moved to Southern Portugal in her late teens. She was drawn in by the opportunity to travel, and the full-time job she found made her decide to stay put. Now, Julia runs a homestead that feeds her family and is part of the local Bitcoin meetup. Through both of these experiences, Julia recognizes the need for high upfront investment and low time preference.
Julia’s journey to Portugal was a spontaneous one. She was only 19 when she first set foot on Portuguese terrain and was looking for a job. She found one that would last for three months, but then got offered a full-time position and decided to settle down in Portugal. Her parents and brothers followed shortly after. She has gone back to Germany a few times since then, but has made her life in Portugal since.
Julia has since built a homestead that feeds her family. She has put in an immense amount of work in order to make it a reality. Not only does it require a lot of physical labor, but it also requires high upfront investment, as well as a low time preference in order for the farm to be successful.
In addition to her homestead, Julia is also involved with the local Bitcoin meetup. She is passionate about the cryptocurrency and believes it is the future of money. She sees a lot of parallels between Bitcoin and homesteading. Both require high upfront investment and low time preference in order to be successful.
Julia is an example of how a strong commitment to one’s goals can lead to success. She has put in the hard work and dedication to build a homestead and be a part of a local Bitcoin community. Her story is one of determination and perseverance, and serves as an inspiration to others.
