I wrote this while en route from Medellin, Colombia to Budapest, Hungary. If you’ve never been to Medellin, I highly, highly recommend visiting.

Travel Update:

So far this year I’ve lived in South Lake Tahoe, USA; Miami, USA; and Medellin, Colombia. Spending time in the U.S. was challenging because my outlook on life and what’s important is now very different than most Americans that I interacted with. My favorite place so far this year has been Medellin. Medellin is an incredibly fun and exciting city with a cost of living that’s a fraction of U.S. cities. And because many people have already asked, I always felt safe during my time there.

This summer I’ll be living in Budapest, Hungary and Belgrade, Serbia. And then in the fall, I’ll live in Bali, Indonesia and Chiang Mai, Thailand. If you’re planning to travel to Europe this summer or Asia this fall, please let me know! Would love to meet up.

Business Update:

At the beginning of this year, I officially announced the parent company to our businesses, Nomad Impact Ventures.The core concept is that we’re focused on building e-commerce businesses while traveling the world and funneling the majority of our profits into an impact fund that will invest in businesses focused on solving issues in education, climate change, and healthcare.

Currently, our public facing businesses are Bill Slasher and FanBump. We recently re-launched the Bill Slasher website, and it was just featured in Forbes. We also have a couple of other businesses that we aren’t ready to announce publicly. Overall things are going very well and the future is promising!

Life Update:

On a personal level, I’m loving being outside of the U.S. again. I’ve learned that I learn and grow at a much faster rate internationally because of the exposure to new cultures, experiences and more diverse sets of people. I haven’t been blogging as much as I’d like to because I’ve been working hard on new businesses, but I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting and will have much to share soon.

If you’ve missed my best blog posts from this year then here are two links: The Six Key Lessons I Learned From Conquering Depression and The Six Reasons Why 2017 Was The Happiest Year of My Life.

I've been building digital businesses, wandering the world, and writing about optimizing life for freedom since early 2017. My mission is to lower the barrier for people who want to live with more freedom: whether that be as an entrepreneur, a digital nomad, an early retiree, or just as someone who wants to live a happiness-driven life.
