My name is Craig and I’m a regular person like you. I got caught up in the rat race and have spent nearly the past 10 year studying for and working a job which I don’t enjoy. I qualified as a chartered accountant and realised I get no enjoyment out of working for someone for the majority of my life and having to deal with stress every day.
After working in New York city for a few months and getting paid a lot I decided to leave and travel South America for 5 months. It was one of the best decisions I could have made. It completely opened my eyes to the world and made me realise that travel and freedom is what I need to thrive.
Before this I would travel but it would be the typical corporate life of working for 48 weeks of the year then going away for 2/3 weeks of holiday and starting again. I came to the decision that life doesn’t have to be this way.
My aim is to live a nomadic lifestyle of traveling for a few months at time and then coming back to home for a few months to see family and friends.
I want to travel to Europe or Canada and spend a season snowboarding everyday.
I want to return to Brazil and continue learning Portuguese, BJJ and spending my days relaxing on the beach.
I want to travel to Indonesia and spend weeks surfing and diving on a liveaboard boat.
There are so many places and things I still want to experience in the near future and if I had a normal job with only 3 weeks holiday a year this would take me years.
My goal is to earn enough income online that it allows me to travel full time and be location independent. I want to be able to wake up each day and decide what to do as opposed to being told what to do.
This is why earning passive income online is so important as it will allow me to work anywhere in the world as long as I have my laptop and an internet connection.
