There seems to be a trend happening in the United States and Europe right now. More and more employees are looking for more autonomy in their professional lives. Books like The Four Hour Workweek where Timothy Ferriss discusses his journey to a life of minimal work and mini-retirements all over the globe are starting to crop up everywhere. Blogs like Mr. Money Mustache, where MMM teaches the laws of frugality and minimalism that helped him retire at age 30, are becoming more popular as well. For example, MMM’s site had over 2,000,000 views in just the first year of its existence alone.
