Just 4 years ago, I was literally sleeping on the couch for a year in a small apartment that I shared with Parker, just watching all these YouTube videos, DREAMING of being a digital nomad. At the very lease, just to be able to get up when I want, go to a Starbucks, and get my work done on my own time. Now, I’m literally writing this from a Starbucks in Thailand. 😅
My YouTube channel started just as a way to save my ‘vacation videos’, but as it’s grown into a community, my goal now is to help as many people as possible ‘break free’ – to get to where they want to go.
Because if there’s anything that my journey shows, it’s that a regular guy can figure something out and make money online – transition into a ‘remote career’. You don’t have to be a computer genius! And with an ‘online career’, not just is it a great career option if you love to travel and have freedom of schedule, but there’s also big opporunity to make MILLIONS on the internet. In the big picture, the internet is still BRAND NEW!
So whether it’s with Freelancing, Amazon FBA (what I do), Drop shipping, Affiliate marketing, Kindle publishing, Personal coaching, or fucking teaching english online – I wanna provide my tips, thoughts, experiences & advice to help you break free from your J.O.B. (just over broke)
Because we all have the same goal – to start living life on our own terms, and start making some passive income, so we can have more time to spend on our passions. And once we have lots of time to work on our passion projects, we can eventually can figure out a way to make money doing what we love – then we never have to ‘work’ again.
My vision is to create a questionnaire that will pick your brain and spit out my best suggestions for what kind of online business might be viable for you. That’s coming soon, so in the meantime feel free to join the email list, and/or post any questions in the LivinThatLife Community Facebook Group.

CashCowPro – Amazon Sales Data / Email software – We use CashCowPro for our personal FBA biz. We’ve also tried others, this seems to be the best and most comprehensive by far. It even includes Auto-Email setup, which is $29/mo alone on other platforms. So at $50/mo, CashCow is actually a deal. We bought the yearly plan cuz, ya know, #BossShit.
