Vocation: Where the world’s deep gladness and your deep passion meet.
I studied abroad in college and you can read more about that here if you’d like, but the basic gist is that, after I returned, all I could think about was traveling again. The problem was that it didn’t seem like a possibility.
Financially, I didn’t even have enough money in my bank account for a meal (I literally bounced a check for $7) let alone to travel the world. I even seriously considered just going abroad and ditching my $30,000 student loan debt at one point, but I didn’t have the guts.
I knew there had to be a way to make money while traveling, whether by working on farms, teaching English, working in a restaurant, or by any other means (most of which I’ve done). But, none of these paid what I needed to see all of the areas of the world I wanted to see.
Plus, after I graduated from college, I got a good job, had a long term partner and a cat, and even bought a house.
But, it was NOT the life I wanted.
I had a very deep desire to be free, to escape, to travel, to be when I wanted, where I wanted, for how long I wanted.
I had listened to everyone else and followed the path of people I didn’t even aspire to live up to, but I wasn’t being true to myself. My conformity and dependence were leading to unhappiness and a future that didn’t excite me to the core.
It was then that I drew a line in the sand and it was also then when real change began. I made a plan, got rid of everything I had, bought a plane ticket, and finally unshackled myself from my chains that had bound me for far too long.
I’ve lived in and traveled to over 25 countries on 4 continents and I can assure you it’s possible.
I don’t claim to know everything, but I can tell you that what I’ve learned and what I continue to learn, I am more than willing to share. That I can promise.
My goal is to help people live and work from anywhere by giving resources, experiences, and anecdotes on LiveWorkAnywhere.com, Anywhere Startups, and Anywhere Passport (AnyPass) —the three places you will find all of the information you need to help give you a profitable revenue stream and ease the transition of making the leap.
My passion it to help unchain people from their normal lives, from their perceived obstacles, from their desk jobs and corporate jail cells, to be free to travel the world, and to be able to live and work from anywhere.
My approach to life and business is simple: the more you venture out, the more you experience, and the more you accomplish. Don’t let anything limit you and don’t let anyone dictate your life or enslave you. Make a commitment to live intentionally.
Here’s to your journey and staying your path! I’m with you every step of the way…
