We’re the Jakoby’s…and the family behind Living Outside the Zoo!
This is the journey of one family, determined to escape a life built around material things, in search of something more. Not more money, more things or more success, but a life where the success is measured in joy and experience.
Are we just a bunch of hippies trying to “find ourselves?”
What if you could write your own story and create your dream life? What would it look like? Imagine wining it big in the lottery & never having to work again. What would you do? Where would you go? That is the question that steers this journey, less the lottery, of course.
My sidekicks in this crazy dream are my husband Gregg and our 9-year-old son, Noah. We’re on a mission to live our one-and-only life to the fullest…no regrets!
We’re downsizing and purging all the needless things in life in an effort to find our freedom outside this crazy “Zoo” of a life!
What will you find here? Well…probably a lot of bad humor as we make our way through this process, mistakes as we figure out what we’re really doing, and hopefully some good ideas you can utilize to make some positive changes in your life. We are not experts in this process, nor will we pretend to be. We are just driven to find a way to live more in this little life we have.
We’ll hope you’ll join us on our journey, learn from our mistakes, be inspired by our successes and maybe even find your own definition of life “Outside the Zoo.”
