Work & Travel
Last week a very interesting proposition fell into my lap, from a very interesting person. When I first took the leap to travel in September 2015, the first thing that I thought about when I got home was. ‘Why am I back?’ and secondly… ‘I wonder if there is a way I could work & travel at the same time?’
So I did what any person does when confronted with such a question and I googled it.
Naturally, I clicked on Location Rebel, the first link, and top ranking post.
I was instantly gripped, this guy Sean Ogle had it completely figured out! Furthermore, he was running a business from his laptop and travelling to wherever he wanted, whenever he wanted and making a decent living at the same time. That day I poured through his blog and over the next few weeks an idea began to form in my mind.
Was it possible to work & travel at the same time? Could I do it? Could I be like this seemingly care-free individual and become a lifestyle entrepreneur myself?
Not far down the line, this inspired me to began my quest for location independence. Fast forward over a year and what was once a dream is very soon to become a reality. Consequently, It’s because of Sean why I’m writing this post to you now.
He was the person that invited me by email to ‘The Paradise Pack’.
The Paradise Pack
To give you some context the Paradise Pack is a project master-planned by two very successful online entrepreneurs.
- Travis Sherry who is the founder of Extra Pack of Peanuts, one of the top travel hacking resources available online.
- Jason Moore who founded the Zero to Travel, where he teaches people to travel on their terms via his top-rated Podcast.
‘Like you, we absolutely love travelling and have a true passion for helping others discover different ways to explore the world.
But we’ve always had a hard time finding one place to get everything we needed to not only travel more but to create a model of sustainable travel through the creation of location independent businesses.
The Paradise Pack is jam-packed with all of the things we wish we had when we started out. We worked hard to bring together this wonderful group of experts to help you see as much of the planet as you desire.’
What the Paradise Pack provides is a hub of useful content aimed at helping you become location independent so that you can travel & work at the same time. Therefore the Paradise Pack includes a plethora of content to help you get the most of growing your own location independent business. It includes content from a collection of well established online gurus including:
- Sean Ogle, the Founder and Head Rebel of Location Rebel. Sean specializes in helping small businesses gain the flexibility and freedom to work anywhere in the world.
- Heath Armstrong, the gremlin smashing, fist-pumping creative maniac behind Fist Pumps, LLC! Founder of The Sweet Ass Journal to Develop Your Happiness Muscle in 100 days, this guy knows how to self-motivate.
- Tim Leffel, an award-winning travel writer, editor, and author of five books. A legend in his own right, numerous publications have quoted him as being a travel expert.
This pack was the push I needed to propel my dreams of location independence into a reality and would give me all the tools I needed to make the jump from talking about pursuing a life of travel and actually doing it!
The Paradise Pack Journal – This blog post series
This blog post will be the first in a series in which I will document my progress through the paradise pack! So as I explore what the courses have to offer I’ll be sharing what works for me, what I enjoyed and my mess-ups along the way.
(I mean there has to be some comedy value included right?)
Hopefully, the Paradise Pack Journal series will inspire you to get involved in your own projects or inspire you to be able to work & travel. Personally, I believe this series will help me by holding myself accountable to you guys so that I can get as much out of the Paradise Pack as possible!
I’ll be posting the next entry every Friday morning at 9 am BST (British Summer Time). If you guys want to keep updated, come back to this page or get subscribed!
Can everyone who reads this please put a little comment on where they’re based and let me know if your part of the paradise pack. I want to know what challenges you’ve started with!
As always feel free to make fun of some of my more hilarious failings (we all love a little banter).
That’s part of the fun!!
