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 […]
Product Reviews: Essential Tools for Business and Life
At Location Rebel, we come across a lot of products every single day. Tools that can help you run your business, tools we know and love, products that are great for travel, you name it.
We do deep dives on some of our favorites to help you decide what's best for your business. And so the product reviews category was born.
Each post in this category is a product review of a specific tool, service, or product that we've actually used and recommend.
We review everything from tools and resources that are essential for running a business to cool things that can help you travel better.
Here are a few of our favorite product reviews at Location Rebel:
My First Mentor I’ve told this story a lot on the blog, but given the circumstances, I feel it’s worth telling again. It was March of 2009. I was out of vacation days (already) for the year, so during my first meeting with Chris Guillebeau I was at a “doctor’s appointment” – which in some […]
Originally published in October 2017, updated with reviews of new styles, and a “one year in” checkup in January 2019. When I think of travel pants, the first thing that comes to mind is an older gentleman in cargo pants that zip off into shorts. It’s the ultimate kiss of death when it comes to […]
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 […]

Sign up for Sumo and take the marketing on your website to another level. A couple years ago I found myself in a blog rut. Traffic was steady, our content was good, and we had a solid stream of new members joining Location Rebel Academy. But there was one thing missing. There was one big […]
Well, I finally did it. I switched my email provider from Aweber to ConvertKit. I’ve been on Aweber for over 5 years – pretty much ever since I started blogging. And while it’s been good to me up until this point, I don’t feel like it’s evolving with the times very well. I feel like […]
Check out the Rainmaker Platform here. About 4 years ago I began creating my first full-fledged, massive membership site. I’d created a pretty basic one already, but I hadn’t done anything that was going to involve an elaborate marketing funnel, forums, different membership levels, and affiliates. Back then, and even to this day, the process […]
There are 24 hours left on our 48 hour sale which ends at 8am PST January 3rd. This is the best deal you’ll ever see on Location Rebel, as the price goes up after this! Check it out! In January of this year I was introduced to a service called Epic Mix while skiing at […]
This post was inspired by something my buddy Max wrote last week. I am in no way affiliated with Dwolla, and don’t get anything for writing this post. By now I think there’s pretty widespread consensus that it’s time for a legitimate competitor to Paypal to emerge. In 2000 when Paypal saw a huge rise […]
