hey there! i’m tina.
And Lagom over 40 is my little corner of the internet!
I live in Utah with my husband David. My favorite things in life are exploring the globe, new cuisines and new trails.
I’m the voice, author, and creator behind Lagom Over 40. After working in the medical field for 20 years, I realized that the time to start working on your bucket list is not after you retire but rather after you are born. If you wait until age 65, it’s too late.
We started our journey with Dave Ramsey’s baby steps and discovered the freedom of being debt free. Life wasn’t as financially scary and we were more free to make decisions without having this heavy burden on our shoulders. It took us less than three years to become completely debt free including our mortgage. This year I plan to quit my full time big-girl position and work less through free lance gigs. I am looking forward to having more of that precious resource, time.
In this space, I am always sharing fresh ideas on how to get the most out of life. I believe that living smaller will help you get control of your finances, get out of debt and pretire so that you can do the things that make you happy. Pretirement is a concept of financial independence and working less so that you have the time to do more you.
On a related note, I absolutely LOVE seeing the life that you’re making. It will make my day if you tag @LagomOver40 in your Instagram photos and stories!

I hope my journey can inspire you to thrive over 40 and beyond.
