6 Lessons From 6 Years On The Road.

Have I been traveling to find myself or lose myself? This story is my attempt at making sense of the last 6 years. What I’ve learned, what it’s meant to me, and where I hope the story goes from here.

The 80 Rules Of Wealth

I’m sharing them with you now, not to dictate or to preach, but to learn more about them for myself. I’ve spent months writing this, 100s of hours, and I’m still insecure about posting it. I want your feedback. I want you to prove me wrong where I’m wrong. I want you to bring better ideas to the table. I basically want you to edit it for me for free, so that I can then turn it into a book, self publish, and sell 100,000,000 copies.

My Long Overdue Love Letter To Tim Ferriss.

In the fall of 2008, I was 18 and starting my first and last “real job.” A third shift gig at a factory that would hopefully allow me to live comfortably enough while I started college and figured out what I wanted to do with my life. Day 1 and Day 2 was supervised training. Day 3 I was on my own.

An Introduction To Breath Work: How I Accidentally Cured My Anxiety And Cyclical Depression By Breathing

Being in a perpetual state of stress and anxiety is lame. I tried it for years. An ongoing cycle of run run run, followed by a crash and depression. No structure. Just stress. I'd go until I couldn't handle it anymore, and then I'd breakdown. I'd go days and weeks without checking any of my accounts or my phone. I'd just vanish and be depressed. This would make me more stressed out. I'd procrastinate. Blow off commitments. Avoid everyone. I would simply hide. Then I learned how to breathe. Then all that stuff magically went away.

Vice in Vientiane: A Slightly Darker Guide To The Capital Of Laos

Why am I writing about illicit activities in Laos? If you've traveled around SE Asia then you already know the reputation of the countries. Thailand is the best: anything you want to experience can be had in Thailand. Malaysia kind of sucks but Kuala Lumpur is awesome. Singapore is very nice and high end, also quite expensive. Cambodia is on the rise. Vietnam has a lot of great stuff to explore, good mix of activity, great food.

A Guide To Medellin, Colombia

I cannot say enough good things about Medellin, Colombia! I am head over heels in love. I had been hearing some buzz about Medellin ever since I started traveling and that buzz is very well deserved. I can absolutely see this become a top travel destination in South America over the next decade and it's definitely a place I'll be coming back to over and over again. It's only a 3 hour flight from Miami and it's serviced by Spirit Air now, meaning cheap flights are easy to get.

The Ultimate Hangover Cure: How To Survive A Day Of Pure Misery

I think it's important to begin my musings on boozing by addressing the inevitable repercussion that we all face from time to time after indulging too enthusiastically in spirits, the dreaded hangover. Before I  instill in everyone a dipsomaniacal disposition to drink, I feel obligated to share with you my painfully researched (I mean that literally) hangover cure. As I strive to become s more serious and practical drinker,  I continue to learn a variety of tactics to help avoid this pitfall. However, anyone that drinks even occasionally is bound to have a night where their imbibing gets a bit out of hand and that will predicate a morning (and better part of the following day) of misery and suffering. Just in case you find yourself in that sordid state of affairs right now, I will get down to business.
