Tanja founded the blog Our Next Life in 2015 to document the journey she and her husband Mark Bunge were on to retire early at the ages of 38 and 41, which they successfully did at the end of 2017. Now the blog takes readers along for the ride in early retirement and shares the many lessons Tanja continues to learn through her research as well as life experience in this non-traditional way of approaching work and money.


Tanja co-hosts the podcast The Fairer Cents with Kara Perez of Bravely. The Fairer Cents examines the special ways that economics and societal forces impact women and our money, and creates space for discussions that move us toward financial equality.


Tanja founded the Cents Positive retreat to give women interested in financial independence a safe space to come together and discuss the issues unique to us and our money. Cents Positive happens several times a year at locations around the world.
