This whole trip, this freedom, adventure and way of life are only possible because I started blogging!

I am am a firm believer that understanding how to create and market your own website will contribute to the majority of important projects, businesses and adventures in your life and will open more doors than you ever thought possible.

Learning these skills have completely changed our lives and I love sharing what I have learned with other people looking for a life change.

Once a year I run a Website Launchpad course with only 30 places, it is a live, web-based course that you can attend from anywhere you have a good internet connection.

If you want something completely different in your life and you are looking for a sign – this is it!
