Hello! Welcome to our lifestyle blog! We’re James and Caroline and we want to inspire you to improve your lifestyle!
We met during university – James was getting his Masters in Business and Caroline her Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing. We immediately clicked, as we both had common goals and BIG dreams.
Even back then, we wanted to start a lifestyle blog about our journey to success. Over the next 6 years, we kept a journal of our successes and failures. In 2018, we decided to finally start our blog!
We chose the name “Trading Average” because of our passion to not live an ordinary life. We decided to “trade” in our “average” lifestyle and challenge ourselves to make our dreams come true – financially, professionally, and personally.
We paid off student loans; bought, fixed and flipped several rental houses; found our dream jobs; checked things off our bucket list; traveled; and got married on a killer budget.
We also quit several unfulfilling jobs; overcame a horrible case of warts (seriously); fell off a roof and through the windshield of our car; and got really sick on our honeymoon. All in all, life has been really good!
Join us as we pass on the tips and tricks that we have learned so far, as we fulfill our goals and continue travelling this amazing journey together!
