2010 Survey Results

After a long day in the sun at the 2010 Crossfit Games in LA, I've flopped into my Aeron in the RV, which is parked near my old stomping grounds in Hollywood. I found an amazing parking spot right near the Farmer's Market that has no street cleaning and is always empty at night. You'd be surprised how important things like street cleaning become when you live in an RV. Anyway, I don't have enough energy left to pull myself out of my chair, so it's time to tally up the survey results from a couple weeks ago and share what I learned.

Life Nomadic

This one was totally unexpected. Around a third of the people who responded said that they want more Life Nomadic. To be totally honest, I didn't know people were that interested in it. The site, when it was separate, never developed the same sort of following this site has.

If you could live in major world capital for one month, what would you do?

About two months ago, I was in Spain (read my previous blog post) giving graffiti workshops to Belgian teenagers. This sparked an idea in my head. If somebody is paying me right now to be in another part of the world to do what I do best. Then I can replicate that and move all around the world while people pay me for it. Genius!

Here's the plan. I pick a destination that I would love to explore. By exploring I mean, living in that area for a period of three to four weeks so I know all the ins and outs. Once I picked my mark it's time for research. I google for potential clients, lay down a database of contact information and contact them. This technique is called shotgunning, I approach a huge amount of people, hoping that a few fish will bite. Once I've gathered a few customers I can start calculating and measuring my budget. If I reach a certain amount of revenue, I'm able to buy the plain tickets,book a room somewhere and off I go!

My favorite big city at the moment is Stockholm. But since it is fall right now and I'm planning to leave in a few months, Stockholm'll be freezing cold! So I pick a more sunny destination. Within seconds, Cape Town pops into my head. It's almost one of the most distant destinations I could pick! I hear my head thinking . 'Dream big, or stay home.' So I start working on it.
