Thinking of moving to Vietnam to work remotely, start a business, or grow an existing one? You’ve come to the right place.

$25K in 4 Months Outline

Featured picture is from my book outline. Guess who finally found a product to sell? And no, I’m not selling bananas. You may recall that back in 2014, I paid off $25,000 of debt in 4 months. This was accomplished through a combination of some pretty extreme tactics: I slept in the woods and under my office desk for… Continue Reading

Beach Office

I’m writing this from the island of Gili Trawangan in Indonesia. Like my beach office? BIG NEWS: I’ve pre-sold a book, begun writing it, and will be publishing it on Amazon this month. Huge turnaround from our last check-in, eh?! Current working title: $25K in 4 Months: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Debt Elimination, Incredible Profitability, and Achieving… Continue Reading

Business Roadmap

This update marks the end of the fifth month of the Create a Business Challenge. We’re almost halfway through the year, which means I have about 7 months left to build, launch, and sell a product. It’s terrifying, especially since I had planned on being much farther along at this point, but as you’ll see below… Continue Reading

Digital Nomad in Malaysia

Over the past few weeks I’ve heard from a number of people who are interested in the digital nomad lifestyle but aren’t sure exactly what to expect.

Location independence backfire

After years of talking about, thinking about, and reading about lifestyle design and location independence, one week ago I left my comfortable life in the U.S. and moved to the island of Borneo to join the digital nomad movement. Sitting poolside with my laptop I thought, I’ve finally done it. I’ve gone “location independent.” I was finally free to… Continue Reading

April Site Traffic

How the heck is it already the end of April? This year is shooting by too fast… April saw an uptick in traffic on WorldwideWantrepreneur.com, but as I’ll share with you in a second, I’m in a frustrating spot when it comes to creating a profitable business. Website Re-Design I’ve made a number of changes… Continue Reading

Travel Hacking

Do you take a round trip flight every year, for free? If not, you’re missing out. Thanks to the ubiquity of frequent flyer programs, rewards networks, and credit card promotions, it’s easier than ever to set yourself up to earn a free trip annually. And most people are able to earn two free round trip flights each year. So why… Continue Reading

  Think you’re a slave to your cell phone plan just because you want to use GPS and maps on your phone while traveling? Think again. You may have heard that your cell phone’s built-in GPS will work offline, but what does this really mean in the context of traveling? It means that you do not need an internet… Continue Reading

WordPress Feature Box

Is a 500% increase in email subscribers worth a few minutes of your time? Over the past few days I’ve spent 10+ hours figuring out how to add the perfect WordPress feature box to my website when I should have been applying for remote jobs. That’s right, we’re talking about the full-width email opt-in box above the content and sidebar of a… Continue Reading
