7. 7 sales. After our initial beta launch (which went really well), I decided for the main event, the official launch of Location Rebel Academy, I was going to do it the right way. I was going to pick a really exotic location, and prove that yes, you can build and run a successful business from […]
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.

Becoming a digital nomad and working for yourself always like a combination of unicorns, glitter, and mint chocolate chip ice cream – don’t believe anyone that tells you otherwise. Ok. That’s a lie. I’ll be totally honest, sometimes being a digital nomad and solopreneur totally sucks. I mean, usually it doesn’t, but nothing is ever all glitter and […]
So, you need to know how to make $100 fast, huh? I get it. Sometimes we get in a bind and need to come up with some extra dough as quickly as possible. We’ve all heard it said so many times, that money can’t buy happiness. But in the wise words of the 90s alternative […]
There are a ton of Bluehost reviews out there. 100s. Probably thousands. And here’s the deal, in the end, every single one has the same goal: To get you to buy hosting. Most Bluehost reviews? They will be overwhelmingly positive. Why? Because they pay some of the best affiliate marketing commissions in the hosting world. A handful […]
“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 […]
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 […]
2007 might have been my most important year ever. The stock market was at an all time high. I was graduating college and entering the real world. And the Four Hour Workweek was published by Tim Ferriss. For myself (and many others), this was the beginning of a perfect storm of circumstances that would forever […]
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 […]
