Nicole has transformed her life and business to live the ultimate travel fantasy - and she knows you can do the same!
I spent too many years of my life working 60-80 hour weeks doing a job that brought me zero fulfillment or happiness. I hated being stuck in the same old routine day after day. I hated working within the same four walls and not having any freedom at all to do anything I wanted. Hell, I had no free time at all to do anything fun – minus the few vacations weeks each year.
I lived for those weeks away that felt more like moments. It was the only time I ever really felt happy or even alive. The day I made the decision to leave it all behind and travel full time was truly a life-changing event. I’ve now been traveling the world for four years and I’ve set up “office” in 45 countries…and I couldn’t be happier! I’m finally living my life for me and I report to no one!
I have worked from just about every fantasy scene you can think of. I’ve taken my laptop to the beach. I’ve “worked” from the comfort of luxury hotels while feasting on room service. I’ve dined in world-class restaurants while casually clicking ideas into my computer while sipping Mai Tais. I knew when I Quit the Cubicle it would change my life forever but living this life of freedom is even more amazing that I ever dreamed it would be! I’m living out my fantasies day after day and sometimes I actually have to pinch myself as a reminder that it’s real.
I’m not telling you all this to make you jealous – I’m sharing my story with you because I want this for you all, too! We always have these dreams of what we want our lives to be someday. We dream of retiring early and traveling the world or being well off enough to only work part time so we can spend more time with the family. The thing is though – you don’t have to wait. Do it now. As long as you have a laptop and can get online, you have everything you need!
The Best Part of the Freedom Lifestyle: The Freedom!
Once you make that leap and figure out what you want to do with your free time, you will actually have the time to do it! Do you want to live your life as I do, traveling the globe year-round? Would you prefer to only travel a few times a year and spend your free time with your family? Maybe you want to sit on the couch all day watching bad soap operas – no judgement here! The options are unlimited and you make all the decisions about what you want your life to look like.
The Bounty of Online Business
Being the entrepreneur of an online business (or multiple businesses!) is an amazing way to set up sources of income that really only require a one-time investment in the beginning. And the best part is anyone can start an online business! These days there are courses you can take, books you can read, and people that can help you along the way.
Can you imagine sitting in your favorite café working for a few hours a day? Or perhaps you prefer to work in your home office in the mornings then spend the afternoons going shopping, visiting friends or playing with the kids in the yard.
A lot of people are jumping on the ‘online business’ bandwagon these days, a revolution Tim Ferris started with the 4 Hour Work Week book. And why not, if you have the opportunity to work part time, while earning a 6 figure income, would you do it? Of course you would!
And that’s the good thing, this kind of lifestyle is possible for anyone! You can do absolutely anything you want with your life, you just need to believe you can and then take action!
So stop waiting for the right time, that perfect moment when life gives you a sign. You may not get a sign. You might miss the sign! The sign you need might be living in your heart and you just have to stop and listen.
