I really love to find blogs that really connect with my goal of combining work and love. There are many bloggers out there that do it but do it in so many different ways. Finding these bloggers is like a treasure map leading me from one clue to another on the way to everything I want.
I was listening to the Smart Passive Income podcast while on an elliptical machine while vacationing in Taipei, he was talking to Corbett Barr who has created two blogs that is generating six figures. His first blog was Freepursuits.com, which started when he was burned out with his office job and went on a six month sabbatical with his wife to Mexico. He turned that blog and his other venture, Think Traffic, into a mobile lifestyle that brings him a six figure income, freedom to work anywhere, and happiness. It’s where I want to be.
On his blog I saw a post titled “18 months, 2 blogs, six figures”. How can I resist such a title? From his success he decided to create a manifesto to pay back what he has learned. It’s completely free and a gold mine of information.
His free report talks about how he got started and the lessons he has learned on this journey. It’s an easy read. Instructional and motivational. I just keep thinking to myself that freedom to be your own boss, be able to work from anywhere and make more money than my old job is possible when I learn about people like Corbett. Our parents and friends might not think it’s possible or typical but it’s possible to have the work and life balance I am looking for.
So take the time to read his report. I know I’m grateful I came across it and his blog.
