Or as my favorite band puts it, out of the jar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jThi78NzKC8
I have a bit of money saved up. I am about to quit my job, thereby losing my recurring income, but hopefully the amount I have saved is enough to pull of this plan:
First, I'm going to start traveling the world. I plan to leave for Thailand in mid-April and never come back. Well, I'll stop by the States on occasion (I have two different weddings to attend in July, if nothing else). On my way around the world I want to build a lifestyle business that can make this exploration continue indefinitely. I have basically no practical skills, but a high IQ, I'm pretty darn personable and handsome and all that jazz (former porn star, competitive dancer, youngest ever invited lecturer at the Worldwide Center of Mathematics), and when I'm under pressure, I shine like the sun. Right now I'm working a bullshit personal assistant/executive director of a philanthropic fund job that requires basically no effort or intelligence, so I'm not under any pressure, and so I feel like a lump of coal rather than the diamond I know I can be. I'm hoping that by traveling I'll be able to douse myself in that wonderful eustress that gets me to actually get shit done, and then get some shit done and build that lifestyle business that I'll need, before I'll actually need it. And all from a beachhouse in Thailand or what have you.
My current idea for a practical lifestyle business is basically what Tim Ferriss talks about in 4HWW: finding something during my travels that people don't have in the USA that an adwords campaign confirms they would want, setting up a shopify, and getting a fulfillment company to ship it out. I'm totally open to new ideas, though.
So what do you think?
The formatting is a little odd because I wrote this as an email to you, then went to your website to find your email address, and then noticed that hey SETT is up so I can just post this instead! Copying it over included the formatting, unfortunately.
Hey here's a question: I just started a blog,
Read any entry other than the most recent one, which is shit.
I have no attachment to its current format or anything. How do I go about setting up my own SETT blog? I've been poking around the website for a while now and haven't actually found that, to my chagrin.
