What is The Unconventional Life?
The Unconventional Life (The UCL) fuses online income, global living, and the FIRE Movement to liberate you from the 9-to-5 grind, transforming the world into your personal playground for financial, cultural, and personal exploration. It’s not just a lifestyle; it’s a movement to revolutionize how you define success, earn your freedom, and live life on your own terms.
These are three of our most popular videos. They have over 1.5 million views and give you a glimpse into the types of videos we create and what our audience likes to watch.
About Amelia And JP
We’re Amelia And JP. In 2017, we sold everything we owned, moved to Ecuador with our two dogs, and launched a YouTube Channel to show you that it’s not only possible, but realistic.
Each week, we post new entertaining and informational content about earning online income, living abroad, and the FIRE movement to teach you how to join the movement and Embrace the Unconventional Life.
If you’ve dreamed of moving abroad and living life on your own terms, we can help.

Planning a move to Ecuador?
We created the course we wish we had when we moved to Ecuador in 2017. We felt our way around in the dark and learned every lesson the hard way. And some of those lessons cost us a lot of money!
This course will make your move to Ecuador easier, faster and cheaper than ours was!
What others have to say…
“After a little over 2 years in Ecuador, I finally saw you two in person and it really brought this whole journey full circle for me. Though I am still very fresh into this chapter of my life, it has been an amazing experience. Better than anything I could have imagined. Long story short, I came across your videos in Oct 2020, had my exploratory trip at the end of Feb 2021, and was on the plane to Cuenca in June 2021. I will be getting my permanent visa here shortly, have retired at the age of 39, and plan to stay here for the rest of my days. It truly has been magical and I feel very fortunate to be able to live this life down here. And so, I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for taking the risk and sharing your experience so that others could more comfortably walk down the same path and find their own little piece of paradise. Thanks for everything!”
“I have been watching your videos and reading your blog for the last six months or so, and wanted to say thank you. I am close to retirement, and looking for my first stop along the way. To that end, I have spent the last month in Colombia, which I love. Next time around, I will visit Cuenca, which I have visited three times. I learned Spanish in Quito, Cuenca, and Arequipa some time ago, and it is of course very helpful in Latin America. BTW, Banos is fantastic, isn’t it? Anyway, keep up the great work!”
“Me, my wife, and daughter are spending about a month here in Ecuador. I want to let you know how grateful we are for all the content you put out. Sometimes I feel people who create content mostly hear from people that are critics or complainers, and we want you to know how much we appreciate you both. Thank you!”
“I’m in Cuenca and I love it here so far…it’s only been a few days but the city is amazing! I would not have come here without you guys, thank you so much! Keep up the good work. Just thought that you would enjoy some positive feedback on what you are doing really matters!”
“I wanted to thank you two for getting me down here to Salinas, Ecuador. I decided to use two weeks of my PTO to get a feel for the area. I just finished my first week today. Loving it so far.”
