“Wouldn’t it be cool to shoot a video around everything that Location Rebel Academy embodies??” “Yeah, that’d be amazing. Why can’t we do it?” “Well…I guess we can!” And as simple as that, The Desk became a thing. If you haven’t seen it yet, here it is in all it’s glory! And now that you’ve seen […]
Lifestyle Design: How to Create the Life You Want
Lifestyle design is a catch-all buzzword that was made famous by Tim Ferriss around 2007.
The concepts of outsourcing your life, working for yourself, and creating a "4 hour work week" might be a little cliche these days, but the reality is that fundamentally they're all things we should be thinking about.
So many of us are in jobs we hate, routines that are dis-enchanting and we're not able to do the things we like to do on a regular basis.
So "designing our lives" to figure out how to integrate more of those things is a really valuable proposition and something we should do more of.
At Location Rebel our lifestyle design posts cover a broad range of topics like travel, blogging, productivity, and bucket lists.
Here are some of our most popular lifestyle design posts, followed by all of our posts in this category:

I still remember the first time I ever met Matt Kepnes. It was outside a club in Bangkok, and as a mutual friend connected us he walked up, stuck out his hand and said “hi, I’m Nomadic Matt.” He was a minor celebrity in my world, where I’d just spent the last year doing research […]
Last week I was sitting in the lobby of the Hoxton Hotel in London, settling into answer some emails after a crazy two weeks of traveling. Normally I’m pretty good at getting work done on the road, but this trip with my wife and various friends through Paris, London, and Amsterdam had taken its toll […]
Seven years. It’s been seven years since I first launched Location Rebel Academy. The whole reason for launching the course was because I’d taken a bit of a unique path in my own life, learned a few things, and thought perhaps it might work for other people as well. I still remember the moment on […]
Note: this post has been updated as of March 2019 to maintain accuracy. I still vividly remember the days before Location Rebel (then Location 180) where I’d sit in my cubicle reading blog posts about location independence from Chris Guillebeau. The office building I worked at had an outdoor garden patio, where I used to […]
Over the last 9 years I’ve had the privilege of getting to know, hundreds, if not thousands of budding entrepreneurs who are set on creating a lifestyle brand. In that time, I’ve seen an equal number of “lifestyle design” blogs that have come and gone (can we ditch that term yet?) There’s a harsh reality […]
Let’s face it, the internet has evolved. Making money online, passive income, lifestyle business – whatever you want to call it – it’s more difficult than it used to be. It’s still entirely possible to build, but the things that worked 5 years ago, aren’t necessarily working quite as well as they are now. Affiliate […]
If you’ve followed this site for awhile, you know one of the biggest aspects of it is my quest to check off items on my bucket list. Well, one of those items is to spend a day shooting video with Peter McKinnon. Peter is my favorite YouTuber, and I’m continually impressed by the quality of […]
Unfortunately for me, I have expensive tastes. This is reflective in my very odd, and slightly pretentious quests of visiting the best golf courses in the world, the best bars in the world, and continuing to make progress on my bucket list as much as I can. For the average person, you’d look at these […]
Here’s a reality of life: we all get stuck in a rut occasionally. Sometimes the ruts are deeper than others. Sometimes they take longer to climb out of. But no matter where you are in life, how successful you are, or how great things seem on the surface, we all have our moments. Those moments where nothing […]
