I got a text this morning
“Dude, sorry for the delay in getting back to you, I was in Ecuador, then Panama and now I am Greece and I am heading to Portugal. I love this life. Where are you? ”
You can live ANYwhere
You can live NOwhere and EVERYwhere.
There is a growing community of people who have given up the traditional concept on living in one place and choose to make the world their playground.
Ever since I was a boy, I would look through the NatGeo magazines and fantasize about these journalist who lived in remote parts of the world going places few people get to see. I always wanted to do that. Now I am.
The dot in this photo, that’s Medellin Colombia and thats where I live now for 6 months a year. The other 6 just outside NYC in Connecticut. And a few weeks here and there in some other place as the opportunity presents itself. (Continue reading below photo)
It is hard for me to believe that I get to live this way. But everyday I am so freakin’ happy that I can. And that is what everyone one of my traveling friends say.
Frankly, I am surprised that more people don’t do it. Maybe not travel the world or live in another country, but live life as an adventure.
“Life is a daring adventure or it is nothing at all.”
– Helen Keller
Instead of making excuses of why you can’t, make excuses of why you can. Then make plans and make it happen.
This didn’t happen overnight for me. This took planning and purposeful choices to make this a reality. It wasn’t particularly hard, but it was different.
I’ve changed my business so that I can live like this. I have added additional streams of income. And I am strategically working towards total financial freedom. This means, I make money even when I am sleeping and traveling or vacationing with my kids.
Most people are shy about having a “side hustle.” They hide in the shadows and pretend a regular job is enough. But the fact is that every truly success person has multiple streams of income. Think about it, most every wealthy person you know has many types of income. It what the smart money does.
A regular job usually is not enough. And it certainly won’t give you the freedom to take weeks off or even years off to travel or raise your kids or be home with them in the summer.
A side hustle is necessary into todays world. And if you choose the right side hustle, it will replace you regular income and give you automated cash flow and total financial freedom.
My only regret, is why didn’t I do this sooner.
Hit me up if you want know what I am up to and how you can be on my Dream Big Team doing the same thing and creating a life of true freedom.
