30 Day Blog Challenge Day 3

Once you make the decision on what you want to do and where you want to be, it becomes a whole lot easier to make bigger decisions – like building a business – especially if you’re already on the road.

That being said, there are definitely some critical elements that you’ve got to understand before you start traveling and building your business.

First off you can absolutely start your business while traveling. The key difference between whether this is going to succeed or not is where you’re really clear on your vision for your ideal lifestyle.

30 Day Blog Challenge Day 3

In Chapter 2 of my book I talk about reclaiming your childhood dreams on what you really wanted your life to look like. If you’ve abandoned that dream as you entered adult hood then it’s time to get it back and focus on what you really want out of life and business.

In the recommended resources below my video you’ll find an inspiring video from Randy Pausch that will help you on that one – it’s a MUST watch.

The next thing to consider, and we will cover this more during this series is understanding all that comes with working from anywhere and the fun challenges you’re going to come up against.

If you’re not techie it can be more difficult, but not impossible, and I talk to this in this video.

And with the right pieces in place, you can accomplish pretty much work from anywhere in the world doing what you love – even if this is your first time branching out from the 9-5 lifestyle.

In this video, you’ll learn:

  • Whether or not you need a firm, established business before you travel
  • My top tips for staying disciplined and focused on the road
  • What you should do as a business owner if you’re not techie
