Note: this post has been updated as of October 2018 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 […]
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.

The year was 2012, and I woke up one August morning to an email from a friend that said: “Want to fly to NYC for free and go to a bunch of fashion week events?” If you know me, you know I don’t belong within 100 yards of any type of “fashion” event, but how […]
It’s always fun having new members pop up in the LR forums and make their first introductions. Usually, it goes something like this: “Hey, I’m Liz from Boston. I’ve been working in an office job in finance. It’s fine, the pay is ok, but I have so much more I want to do with my […]
Over the years I’ve made a lot of stupid travel mistakes. There was the time I was supposed to have a meeting in Ubud (the center of the island in Bali) and after two hours of riding my motorbike, I ended up at the ocean. There’s the time I almost lost my laptop at Boston […]
Last week in partnership with Canadian Rockies Golf, I took an epic 7 day trip to Alberta to see the best of what the area had to offer in terms of golf and the outdoors. To put it bluntly, the Candian Rockies were even more breathtaking and spectacular than I could have expected. Arriving in […]
Once upon a time I lived in Bangkok. When I landed in the City, I honestly knew nothing about it. I didn’t know what the neighborhoods were. I didn’t know which areas were touristy or not. I didn’t know which spots were “safe” and which ones weren’t. I just showed up. I had a hostel booked for […]
It usually hits around 3:30 or 4 in the morning. There’s no telling when it’s going to come, but when it does, it can make small problems feel like the world is collapsing down on top of your bed. I’m talking about the early morning panic spiral. I have no idea if this is a […]
I still remember the single most life changing email I’ve ever received. I got it on October 22nd, 2009, which was the same day I wrote about leaving my day job. The email was from Dan Andrews, the Founder of the Tropical MBA. Here it is: Now the TropicalMBA is one of the best business […]
When I was in college, my friend Ryan and I used to joke that we really only learned one thing in school: That people are flaky. A person can have their stuff together, but as a whole, people are generally flaky. This month I’ve talked quite a bit about how managing multiple businesses has left me a […]
Well I’ve been back in Portland for about 12 hours, and for as much fun as I had in Alberta – it’s really time to get back down to work. I have a stack of emails in my inbox, a dozen posts that need to be written, and lest we not forget, I’m only halfway […]
