Quit your job, move to Hawaii. That’s the dream. How many times have you sat in your day job and dreamt about white sand beaches, crystal clear waters and sipping mai-tais day in and day out? Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? Well way back in 2009, my best friend Ryan did just that. While I […]
Lifestyle Design: How to Create the Life You Want
Lifestyle design is a catch-all buzz word 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:
- My Bucket List

- Businesses You Can Run from Anywhere - 10 perfect location independent jobs.

These are just a handful of dozens of posts on lifestyle design, so cruise through them below and start creating the life you really want.
I’m going to venture a guess, and say that you don’t actually want to be a digital nomad. Sure you’d love to travel more, see exciting new places, and be able to take your work with you – but it’s that nomadic part, that most of us (including myself, don’t actually want). We do however want a digital hybrid […]
The single best business and lifestyle decision I’ve ever made is starting a blog. I say that with absolutely no hyperbole or exaggeration. Because I started this blog in 2009, I’ve been afforded so many incredible opportunities and experiences. Why blog? It’s allowed me to… Here are just a few of the benefits of starting a blog. […]
I recently read this post again for the first time in nearly eight years. (It was originally published in August of 2010). It was fascinating to reflect back on, as it was originally written just two weeks after I’d returned from my big stint in Thailand. At the time I know I was terrified of peaking, and that […]
Note from Sean: This is a guest post from Dan Pierson. I love what Dan is doing with Bolt Collective. and we share a lot of similar interests when it comes to building businesses around things we love. I was pumped when he asked if he could share some tips and stories from his own experiences, so […]
Our whole lives we’ve been trained to think that gaining knowledge, building skills, and simply learning how to do stuff takes a lot of time. The traditional education system for most people lasts about 16 years. Sure much of that is spent in your younger years learning the essentials of communication, math, basic history – […]
Note: this post has been updated as of February 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 […]
It’s 1:23 pm on a cloudy Monday afternoon in New York City. You’ve just hopped off the NJ Transit train to Newark Liberty International and you’re excited to get back home after 10 days of networking, socializing and business meetings. As you’re on the AirTrain you pull up Tripit to figure out which terminal you’re supposed to […]
For the last two weeks, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sat down to write my annual review and just stared at a blank screen. Or clicked away to YouTube. Or gotten up to play my shiny new Nintendo Switch. Writing this review and taking a deep dive into what went well in […]
There’s no doubt you’ve heard of a bucket list. In fact, here at Location Rebel, we’re kinda obsessed with them (see here, and here, and here). There’s a reason for that, and no it’s not to humblebrag. Well…most of the time. We love bucket lists because there are so many positive things associated with them. […]
