Back when I started traveling full-time at the beginning of 2013, I honestly had no plan to turn this into a never ending journey.
It was just supposed to be a year-long break.
But the life was great… I felt like I was really living, instead of living for the 9-to-5. I wasn’t counting down the days until the weekend or those 2x per year vacations.
When my year long sabbatical come to an end, I wasn’t ready to go back to working world, so I headed overseas where my dwindling dollars would go a little further (thanks, Colombia!).
Thankfully, long-term travel was much cheaper than I ever imagined it would be…
After a lot of bumbling around trying to figure things out for myself, I finally started to make a little bit of money online through this site and through freelancing. In those early days I didn’t really put much strategic thought or planning into what I was doing… I wish I had!
Today, I’m able to travel full-time and pay for it with my website income and freelance income, even managing to sock away money in my savings account, not just living hand to mouth.
But thinking back to those early days when I didn’t know what I was doing and was barely getting by, it was still pretty incredible to be able earn money regardless of where I am in the world. That first dollar you earn online is like the Red pill vs the Blue pill in the Matrix.
The Internet has opened up a whole new world to all of us.
How would your life change if you could travel everywhere and work from anywhere?
Behind the Laptop
There are thousands of people out there who are traveling the world and making a living online without being tied down to any particular place (unless they want to be, which is totally cool). My way to making a living online is only one of the many ways that people have found success online, and which has allowed them to travel the world on their own terms.
The fact is, what works for one person, may not work for another. We’ve all got to blaze our own paths, but that doesn’t mean you can’t shortcut your learning process by taking what works from another person and implementing it in your own life.
Even if you don’t have any idea how you could do it, I’d encourage you to pick up the free guide Behind the Laptop which shares 10 different case studies of 10 different people utilizing 10 different ways to earn money online while traveling the world. Check it out! Something might click with you.
Introducing the Paradise Pack
If this idea of a location independent lifestyle appeals to you, then you’re not going to want to miss the once-a-year Paradise Pack – a world-class bundle of resources that have been proven to help you travel more, spend less, and earn money from anywhere in the world (even if that’s just from home).
That’s kind of what I’m all about!
Don’t miss out. This bundle is available for one week only and then it’ll be gone forever.
The Paradise Pack sale officially begins on
Tuesday May 29th at 3am PST and runs until
Monday June 4th at 11:59pm PST.
What’s inside the Paradise Pack?
So, we’re talking about 20+ courses, books, and resources which will help you get started earning money online and living a location independent lifestyle. Keep in mind, this is all stuff you can do from the comfort of your computer and the internet, no immediate travel plans required (indeed, you could/should get started before setting out).
Here’s what you’ll get in this year’s Paradise Pack:
How can The Paradise Pack change your life?
I’ve picked up the Paradise Pack for each of the past few years (every year’s bundle contains a completely different set of products) and it has had a HUGE impact on my long-term travels, my blogging and social media reach, my freelance success, and so much more.
I’ve used many aspects of what is taught in the Paradise Pack throughout my travels. The material in these courses is absolutely why I have been able to travel for more than five years straight and am still keeping right along with no plans to stop.
From travel hacking and airline miles taught in Travis Sherry’s course, the same principles which allowed me to easily save at least $2,200 in airfare the past few years, including a First Class flight between Colombia and the USA which cost me a little over $100… Round trip!
To the concepts of geo-arbitrage whereby I make money in dollars (via the Internet) while living in the amazing country of Colombia which has a high standard of living at way less than half the price of the States.
To give you some perspective: I paid about $315 per month for a large three-bedroom apartment in a nice neighborhood. Eating out down the street for a full meal costs only about $3 (including soup, big entree and fruit juice).
I even got a top-notch porcelain dental crown done down there for only about $250–which would have cost me a staggering $1,000 or more in the States.
On our drive through Latin America, Andrea and I also got into the world of house sitting where you can drastically reduce your travel overhead, travel more like a local, and extend the length of your travels dramatically.
I’ve driven from Seattle all the way to Ushuaia, Argentina (the southernmost city in the world)… During this most recent year-long leg through South America, not only have I managed to keep my savings intact, but actually start growing them.
Are you buying it with your own money?
Yep, planning to! Like I said, I’ve gotten my hands on the Paradise Pack the last few years and it’s an absolute no-brainer. Almost any ONE product is worth the purchase of the bundle… You just get a bunch more incredible info for basically the same price.
If you’re at all interested in learning more about this lifestyle and setting yourself up for success, I consider this a must purchase. Every year, I learn a great deal and find incredible value from at least a few products.
Why are you buying it if you’re already an experienced travel blogger?
Because like I said, it’s so worth it and I always learn something new. My freelance and online blogging success is what I would consider decent, but there are plenty of people doing WAY better than me, so why not continue my education so I can improve every month?
This way I can pick up a whole bundle of new information, pick through what is currently useful to me and take my business to the next level… All while saving 90% compared to if I bought it all one-by-one.
Do you make a commission on it?
Yes, I do receive a commission. I’ll receive 30% if you click through my link and decide to buy it. This, of course, costs nothing extra to you and the Paradise Pack is driven entirely by affiliate promotions.
I make a healthy share of my income through affiliate income. But I only promote products that I know and use and that I feel 100% comfortable recommending to my readers.
I know the incredible value these once a year bundles provide. I don’t want you to miss out. It really is only for one-week.
Last year people were emailing me asking me to help them out because they missed the deadline… Sorry, once it’s gone, it’s gone.
It is worth the money?
Yeah, it’s kind of expensive at $497. But with everything you get in this year’s bundle (worth more than $7,500 if sold separately), you’re almost assured of either being able to save that much thanks to travel hacking tips learned in the bundle, or earn that much through what you learn.
It’s a bundle about BOTH traveling cheaper and earning money. If you apply what you learn and work hard, you will earn back the investment many times over.
I know I have from the previous bundles.
3 Products I’m Excited About this Year
My personal situation is different from yours, and there are some products that I’m more interested in than others. Yours may be completely different. But here’s what I’ll be digging into first this year:
Build Your Own Content Machine
Content is king for a blogger, but sometimes it is tough to not only find the ideas for new content, but to do so in a way that will be liked by Google and end up ranking on the first page, which means lots more clicks and more traffic.
Pinterest for Bloggers
You might not know this, but Pinterest has been a huge success for this site. In terms of driving traffic to this site, it is #2, behind Google, and it drives like 8x as much traffic as Facebook. For a blogger, Pinterest is way more valuable compared to Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. I’m looking forward to taking it up another notch.
SEO for Bloggers
Like I mentioned earlier, SEO has been my big push recently and it has paid off HUGE. Getting an article from Page 2 to Page 1 of Google is massive. Going from link #5 to link #1 can mean hundreds of additional clicks every day. SEO will continue to be my primary focus for the rest of 2018.
Those are just three products that I’m personally looking to dig into first… Sold separately they would cost more than $750, but thanks to the Paradise Pack I’ll be able to grab them for a fraction of that price… And get another 20-some products to pick through…
Some that might be of more interest to you include the Freelancer Start Up (the #1 to start earning more money now, not by blogging), Wantrepreneur to Entrepreneur Bootcamp, or the Frequent Flyer Bootcamp. Go check out the full offering of courses and info available this year:
It’s Your Turn To See The World
Ever wonder how on earth people can afford to quit their jobs, travel the world, and make a living while they are doing it?
Don’t worry! The experts in The Paradise Pack will teach you exactly how to do this, so you can become one of those traveling vagabonds you always wonder about.
The experts in the pack will show you how to travel affordably, start a business you love, AND earn money from anywhere.
You don’t need to be rich. You don’t need to be a business guru. It doesn’t even matter if you’ve never been on a plane before!
You don’t have to say “I wish I could do that too…” because that’s what I used to say, until I devoured all the information I could and just started taking action.
Whether you want to work from home and take just a few trips a year, travel long term, become a full-time digital nomad, or move to another country, they’ve got you covered.
