Why YOU should read this blog

This is a simple question every blog author should be able to answer. So take a few minutes and find out, why exactly you are going to benefit from reading this blog!

The purpose of this blog is to give you tips and pointers on how to live the lifestyle Tim Ferris promoted in his book “The 4-hour workweek“. What makes this book different from all the other “get rich” books is that it doesn’t promote getting rich, but instead it promotes making enough money to realize your own dreams whilst having enough time to do the things you want to do.

What are your dreams and goals?

Successfully pursuing your dreams requires you to know your dreams and goals. But finding and setting goals alone is enough for a complete blog post or even a post series on its own (believe me I wrote about it in my bachelor thesis). In this blog I will tell you about my goals and show you how you will find out about your goals and dreams and how you can reach them. For your motivation I will keep you updated on the progress of my goals.

One of my biggest goals is to travel the world, more specifically, I want to see all locations of the book “1000 places to see before you die“. In this blog I will not only give you the travelling reports of my adventures, but also I will show you, how you can achieve your dreams (if it’s travelling, a big house, spending more time with your kids or whatever) through a steady flow of passive income. Instead of limiting myself to selling stuff online, I will try all kinds of streams of passive income.

If you want to live the lifestyle you always dreamed of, keep on reading this blog and you will find a way to do it.

What you will get from this blog

In this blog you will…

  • …learn how to make money online.
  • …read about fascinating destinations in the world.
  • …learn how to travel the world with less money.

This blog is different from other blogs, because…

  • … I will post my own failures and success stories. You will not get a censored version of the success, but also learn about the struggles I will have.
  • … I will post income statements, so you can see how much I earned each month.
  • … the travel reports are not only simple descriptions of various destinations, but each travel report will be one step of my way to see all 1000 places.

I hope that I cought your interest.

Let the journey begin

What am I going to write? Is anyone going to read it? What can I offer that nobody else can offer?

These are all questions that postponed the start of this blog. The truth is, these questions are nothing more than the the little kid’s “What-if-nobody-likes-me”-anxiety before its first day in a new school. Well I finally decided not to let it bother me and start writing.

I will start this blog as my own personal diary on my way to be a successfully self employed lifestyle designer. I’m new to blogging, so please be patient with my blogs. I still need to learn to write for a broad audience.

Also, be patient with my spelling and grammar mistakes. I am not a native speaker. As you can read in my “About this blog”-page I am German. Actually I am even a German with a Russian background, so please don’t judge the quality of my blogging by grammar and maybe uncommon use of the english language.

I still have to use LEO (btw the best online English-German dictionary) from time to time, so if I write something that just doesn’t make sense, just leave a comment and I will try to make it clear. 🙂

So much for the start. Now…

… let the journey beginn!
