Saving up for an avocado

Ellen Finn describes how she quit her job and exhausted her retirement savings to become a musician when she was around 50 years old.

I was totally broke. I was living on beans and I know thousands of bean recipes. It’s scary at any age, but it’s particularly scary in your fifties when all my friends are retiring and my goal is to save up for an avocado.

The quote comes from the BrightSideBroadcast podcast featuring her music.
