I’m probably working from an airport or cafe and it is quite possible that I could be answering your email while on the top of a mountain during a 4-hour hike.
I like to prove that an address doesn’t make you settled and a career doesn’t mean 4 grey cubical walls. Success is always related to the mindset- results naturally come after.
Why do I travel? I am obsessed with learning things in a different way. Whether it’s a story from a Bedouin in the Wadi Rum Desert, a tip from a local surfer in Mexico, or simply how to live off the contents of a small backpack for four months and not feel entitled to more than I need. Travelling is an intense way to learn and it makes you very comfortable with the thought that anything is possible.
I’m an advocate of ditching the 9-5 and creating the life you want. I started making an income online when I was 18 years old in my second year of university. I got the job by making my (still current) client laugh so hard he was nearly crying on the phone. I’ve also learned it’s all about authentic connections, no matter where you find them.
When I’m not working, I’m usually travelling and visiting with family and friends. When I travel I’m usually surfing, cooking, meeting people – especially locals. I also stay active by hiking and doing yoga, and of course all of the experiences that come with travelling. I am planning to start my project of helping local businesses in Latin America, so that will be my next big trip. I’ll be living in Europe for the next year beforehand.
I’m extremely grateful for the privileges I have, being able to work and travel. When someone is grateful for something, they do all that they can to keep it in their life. I’d also like to enable more people to do so.
I was lucky enough to do some travelling in 2017…
And this is where I am currently:
