"[one of the] Top 25 Best Bloggers"
Hi! I'm Tynan and I believe in making deliberate decisions and breaking away from the herd mentality. I like learning new things, building habits, exploring the world, connecting with awesome people, and creating good work. I also like great tea. Below are some of the things I'm best known for.
I love cruising and typically spend 30-60 days at sea every year. In my quest to find the best cruise deals I ended up starting a cruise agency called CruiseSheet. The site started because I wanted to be able to compare cruises by price per day including tax, and no other sites allowed you to see or sort by that information. Since then it has grown to be the best site for finding and booking cruises.
I have written seven books, many which became #1 Amazon Bestellers in their categories. The two that I am best known for are Superhuman by Habit and Superhuman Social Skills. You can see all of them on my Amazon page.
Coaching and Live Events
I do a limited amount of one on one monthly coaching, and I host 1-3 live events per year. My main goal is to use my unique set of experiences and skills to help people build the habits and systems to reach their goals. Having done this for several years now I've gotten to see excellent results with nearly everyone, and my live events consistently get rated around 9.5/10.
Worldwide Property Purchases including an Island
With my friends I have purchased apartments in Hawaii, Budapest, and Tokyo, as well as an island near Halifax, Canada and 12 units in a neighborhood in Las Vegas. This sounds extravagant, but my combined cost for all of these things is under $100k.
This blog is hosted on a blogging platform called Sett, which I began building with my co-founder in 2011. Sett was ahead of its time in many ways and (in my opinion) is still the best blogging platform available. I maintain it and keep it running just because I can't get myself to switch to any other ones.
Pick Up Artist
From embarrassingly humble beginnings, I rose to become one of the most famous pickup artists in the world.
I'm Herbal, one of the main characters in the New York Times Bestseller, The Game. Pickup helped me get over crippling introversion with girls and led me down a path of honest self-assessment and continuous pushing of my comfort zone. I'm not actively involved anymore, but it remains one of the best influences in my life.
In 2008 I sold everything I owned and went on an extended world trip for the first time with my friend Todd. We each packed a 28L backpack and made no advance plans, arriving in Panama on the first day with nowhere to stay and knowing no one. Throughout the year we got lost in the jungles of Panama, experienced the Cherry Blossom Festival in Japan, rode cross country on the roof of the slowest train in the world in Cambodia, rode 4x4s in the sand dunes of Qatar, ran with the bulls in Pamplona, and explored the miles of catacombs beneath Paris.
I ended up writing for the leading travel blog Gadling, becoming a fervent minimalist, and writing a book on lightweight nomadic travel called Life Nomadic. Since that time my backpack has shrunk to 19 liters and less than 10 pounds, and I continue to travel for a few months each year.
More than ten years later I still travel constantly. In 2018 I wrote a book called Forever Nomad, which is a sequel to Life Nomadic.
I lived in an RV for around 10 years. My second RV was a 1996 Winnebago Rialta, which I customized extensively. Some of the changes include:
Other cool things inside the RV include a 100 year old Persian rug, an original David Choe painting, and the Aeron chair that belonged to the CEO of Design Within Reach. As you might have guessed by now, I also wrote a book about living in a nice small RV, called The Tiniest Mansion.
