Thanks for stopping by! We are The At Home Couple; Elijah and Veronica. We are married with a beautiful baby girl, and we’re from Toronto, Canada.
Don’t get us confused with our biblical namesakes, we’re your typical couple; ambitious, confident, busy and at times struggling. It seems like everyone we know is in the same boat, or one that looks just like it. The difference is that we’ve always been determined to make it to shore.
We have been a couple for over 10 years – and making a full-time living working online for 7 of them. And while that sounds great, it’s important to know where we came from…
After we both graduated from college, we realized that the real world is definitely not as appealing as it once was – in and out of jobs, constant struggle to pay the bills, and the monotonous cycle of the forty hour work week. Add to the mix the normal ups and downs of a relationship (not only with each other, but everyone around us) and what you end up with is two exhausted people looking for an alternative way of living.
That was us and it was the recipe for success (and multiple disasters).
We’ve never been the type of people to ask for much, so our goals have never been too complicated. We want to open the eyes of our peers, and those coming up behind us, to the fact that it is not necessary to work for 35 years for a shitty pension and a cheap gold watch.
It’s pretty simple.
We want you to know that it’s not necessary to sacrifice your true passions and desires for a mundane existence – think Bill Murray in Groundhog Day.
Life should be about living and we are determined to help you make that happen.
Come hop in our boat . . . It may not be a smooth ride, but there are plenty of paddles!
