This is a blog about walking the walk, chasing dreams and creating your perfect lifestyle. I’m going to blog about my journey to becoming a Digital Nomad, a serial startup, a Gorilla Entrepreneur. Even just saying it gets me worked up!
Some of the things I will blog about are Business, Travel, Technology, Money, Photography, Martial Arts, and Books. This might sound overly ambitious but these are things I am passionate about and I have been interested in each for over ten years.
For a long time I have talked about my firm belief that there are many ways a person can lead any life they want, be it from becoming a professional poker player to disappearing off into China to become a Wushu master. I’ve learnt from experience that the best way to make things happen, is to talk yourself into doing it, and then doing it!
There is a popular saying in some circles, “those who can’t, teach“. Variations on this theme are vocalised, especially by people who trade for a living, and it implies (very cynically) that most people who teach or write about success, are people who aren’t successful themselves.
Well that ain’t gonna be me buddy! My blog will document my progress in becoming one of those enviable serial entrepreneurs and Digital Nomads; someone who has used technology to separate their ability to earn an income from being location dependent, so that they can live anywhere and achieve their own dream lifestyle. Two things I have already done; talked myself into doing it, and going nomadic, so I’m halfway there!
As well as tracking my progress, I will also be writing about the experiences I’ve learnt most from in the last 15 years. Especially the interesting places I have seen or lived, and a list of every book I have ever read, to which I will gradually add reviews of the best and most influential ones.
Some of the people I envy most for their lifestyle are travel writers, literary critics, photo-journalists and profitable bloggers – and they all started somewhere.
I know it’s a privilege for me to be able to try this, unlike many people, but it’s also my attitude and self-belief that make it possible. You’ve got to be in it, to win it.
