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 […]
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.

If you’re a new blogger or niche site owner, you might think traffic is the be-all-end-all most important part of your new business? And you’re right…kind of. Without people visiting your blog, you won’t have a business. Simple as that. But there’s a BIG mistake most new bloggers make: they don’t know what to do with that […]
It was 2 am on Saturday morning. Most of my friends were grabbing their final drink of the evening at the bars in Portland. But, my friend Brian and I were 3 hours away – just waking up at a cabin on the McKenzie River. It would be about a 90 minute drive to get […]
When I was in 7th grade I edited my very first movie. It was on a flashy new turquoise iMac. Don’t lie, you totally remember when those first came out. At the time, video editing to me was something that could only be done in giant million dollar editing suites. The idea of being able to shoot […]
I did it. 20,000 subscribers. Although I’m not sure why I just said “I did it” like 20k was some big magical end goal. Realistically it’s just one milestone on a journey that doesn’t really have an end. But it’s an exciting milestone nonetheless! It took me 8 years to hit 10k subscribers, and just […]
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 go during my breaks to sit and daydream about someplace more exotic. I’d […]
Let’s face it, life as we know it is gone…for the time being. Flights have been suspended from Europe. Essentially every major (and not so major) sporting event has been canceled. Bars and restaurants are shutting down. Even Disney World is closed. The Coronavirus is officially a pandemic, and things are going to get worse […]
Updated as of March 2020 to include video and 4, 3, 2 productivity hack. When it comes to wasting time in front of a computer, I’m a triple black belt. Over the last 10 years of working for myself, I’ve wasted not just hours or even days in front of a computer, but weeks, if […]
If you work online, no matter what you do, at some point you’ll come across haters. You’ll get people who want to put you down. You’ll get people who don’t think you’ll be able to make it. And sometimes, you’ll get people who simply see things a different way than you do. And that’s all fine. It comes […]
As I sit here on a ferry from Koh Phi Phi, Thailand to Railay Beach (one of my favorite places on Earth), I can’t help but reflect upon what’s led me here – to the Andaman Sea in the middle of a Wednesday. The same Wednesday that used to be spent in an office, dreaming of the […]
