Hi, I’m Adam.

I’ve been on the move for . . . a while.

When I was 20, I remember reading a story about a guy who quit his job, got rid of his stuff, packed two saddlebags of necessities, and took off on his bicycle to the other side of the planet.

He rode from Oregon to Patagonia — almost 7,000 miles…

So you can live a summer adventure you always dreamed of.

Vacation planning time is here and it means that you need to think about booking yours.

Being in the throes of winter can encourage you to be miserable: dull sky = dull mood. However, once you get yourself online and start looking for vacations, pricing them up, and researching locations, your mood is going to lift no matter the color of the sky outside.

With thoughts turning to what to do once the sunshine hits, you can be overwhelmed with the options in front of you.

You’ve got beach breaks, all-inclusive adventure vacations, flight and hotel packages, self-catering long-haul destinations…

Content is king — until burnout hits.

If you’re a creator or have an entrepreneurial mindset of any kind, you’ve likely been stuck in the idea phase before.

The point in which you’d love to pursue a project — whether it be for-profit or for passion — but you just don’t have the time, resources, motivation, etc. for all the extra work you’d have to put in; whether that be keeping track of finances, balancing your work-life schedule, or having a dedicated team to go about it with.

We all have certain aspects of project creation that hang us up. For me, it’s social media. I hate…

Travel Tips.

Workaway is the platform for budget travelers

It was the spring of 2016. I spent the whole season — from the late winter snow through to the April showers — in the medieval architectural-inspired country of Belgium. It may be a small country, but it packs a strong cultural punch. With several of its largest cities no more than an arm’s length away from each other, it seemed like the perfect place to stay awhile.

I was backpacking through Europe but was ready to settle down and take it easy. I had enough of all the hostel-jumping and tourist havens; I wanted to travel in a different…

A simple decision to go to community college would have made all the difference. Here’s why.

For my freshman year of college, I shelled out $27,000 on tuition and housing to go to a 4-year state school. I was 17-years-old when I made that decision.

After I realized I had no idea what I wanted to study, I opted to go to community college in my sophomore year. That saved me quite a bit of money. It only cost me a little over $2,500.

That’s a difference of $24,500.

In my sophomore year, I was lucky enough to live with my parents which saved me big time on rent. While not living the traditional college experience…

Why travel is the answer to an exciting, unpredictable life.

Many people ask me why I travel. For me, that’s a simple question.

I travel because I don’t want life to pass me by. I’m twenty-three-years-old and have seen more of the world than a majority of the people on this planet will ever see. I’m grateful for that and I don’t take it for granted.

I travel to avoid the routine life that I see the rest of my peers living. The pattern society tells us to follow is very simple:

We’re supposed to graduate high school. After that, we are told to pick a career at the age…

And all you penny-pinchers will wish you saw this coming earlier.

About two years ago is when I first heard about the Financial Independence, Retire Early movement (F.I.R.E).

I was making $20k per year as a freelancer with about 100% of my annual income saved in a brick-and-mortar bank.

Although financial experts say having 100% of your income saved at 24-years-old is ahead of the game, I felt F.I.R.E. was out of my league.

Regardless, I started investing my savings and adhering to the movement’s principles. I liked the idea of saving intentionally and having a goal for this seemingly endless career circle. …

Don’t force your subject
