Financing the FSP
« on: December 05, 2005, 04:34:31 PM »

How do you all go about financing your move to the Free State? I'm interested in everyone's stories, especially those of Ian & Manwich (and T/J if they are doing it).

My situation is that I'm a college student (2nd year), with a savings of about $6,000 in the Credit Union (SOVIET I TELL U! [JK]), and some part-time  jobs that come and go, paying around $10/hr avarage. Most of these are tech related, but not all. 2/3 of them involve Liberty in some way though! All told, at this rate, I'd probably be at about $7-10K in total savings by this time next year probably, and that's it. How does one move to NH and make some change w/out being financially well established, a smuggler, or in posession of large gobs of "old money" (rich parents/relatives)?

Also, when is the planned 'official' moving period, and does the FSP have any info on people to contact about finding work/housing/etc in the area? Remember, I'm not very well established on my own, and "FSPing" would be not just a new start, but in many ways the first start for me on my own (no more familial or collegiate ties). Granted, I do know one guy in NH named John Starr who went to my university, so if you're reading this or know who he is, please let me know!

Thanks in advance,
Andrew

http://freestateproject.org/ has sections of their message boards for people who are looking for housing and work in NH.  They also have links to other resources.

A single person with a college degree that is in demand in NH should be able to move for less than $1,000.

The FSP website has a section with info that could keep you busy for weeks.

OK I'll take those resources under advisement. I'll let you all know what my decision is in a couple of years ;)

I'm an individualist of the first order; I REALLY don't like to owe others if I can avoid it.

I am currently working to eliminate my credit card debt and purchase enough assets to at least keep me with an income until I can establish contracts in NH.  I'm also acquiring data through a cashflow statement to establish a good idea of a reasonable budget; I almost have a year's data, which should assist greatly in finding the best solution.

At the same time, I am building up my skills; I intend to be as competant a computer technician and businessman as I can be; I currently work at a (private) university, so I plan to take advantage of the educational benefits. ;)

I also have an idea for a potential business which I am currently still in the research phase for; something a friend of mine had given me, although I don't believe they thought the concept through well enough.  Not that my concept is more than just that at this time. :?

Cool. I've been in IT for quite a while, plus I can fix pretty much anything mechanical, without having to know much about the item in question before hand. Basically, I can fix anything, it's just a matter of how long it takes. I can also do social organization jobs pretty well.

I'd be going to NH next year if it weren't for that silly little "college" thing.

So it'll probably be 4 years, at least.

As for financing it directly, I believe that spending the money yourself and investing the effort yourself will accomplish more. I may donate a bit now and then, though.

Hey, how about college in NH?  I'll be getting out of high school in a few years and I'm really considering it.  Why wait ANOTHER four years?

I'd move to New Hampshire, except for that whole the Free State Project is completely stagnant and worthless thing.
