This blog could not be made possible without all of the valuable resources that I use to make this a place you love and want to stay. Here I provided you with a comprehensive list of products that I use daily to make this a place you can enjoy. These products are ones that I currently use or have used in the past and still recommend. Life is about being nomadic, and this list of products has helped me in this pursuit and I hope they can help you too.

Website, eCommerce, & Digital Marketing Tools
They have been my hosting service for the last 5 years. Their customer service is amazing and their hosting is extremely affordable! I have hosted every website I have ever created with them, and I think it is THE best hosting for someone that wants to get started quickly and easily. Set up is easy, and I made a tutorial to help you set up your very own blog within minutes!
Instapage is one of my most used tools for digital marketing. When it comes down to crunch time, I need to be able to create beautiful landing pages in almost no time flat. This tool allows me to do so without worrying about code and yucky integrations. I would highly recommend this to ANY digital marketer or blogger.
Whenever doing online research for blogs, websites, and products to create I always turn to keyword research to validate it. Long Tail Pro is the best program to get in-depth competitive research data on keywords instantly.
When I first started in the eCommerce world, I relied on Shopify as my all-in-one website and shopping cart solution. That was 3 years ago, and now they have made even more advancements in the eCommerce space. If you want to get your business up and running today, use Shopify and try it out for 14 days free!
Ever since I discovered Themeforest many years ago, I have never looked back. Themeforest offers the best selection of affordable but professionally designed and highly editable themes. I have tried other themes from other companies and have never been as happy with the quality as I have with Themeforest.
Well. It is hard to explain how in love I am with this product. FreshBooks has been a tool that I use every day. As a freelancer, managing money, invoices, and expenses can go over my head quickly. With this cloud accounting I can easily manage all of this in minutes and see it in a visually easily digestive way. Try it free for a month and I am sure you will see what I mean.
My Creative Tools
I use this for almost all of the creative photography for my clients and this blog. I have had it for five years and it still works well. This is a great intro camera for anyone looking to to begin their life in photography. If you are looking for some additional tips for beginners, check out this photography article.
This thing ROCKS! The GoPro line is small, but shoots some really great footage when I am traveling and flying! I would highly recommend this if you do any type of travel or action nomading.
I purchased this mic back when I was teenager first getting into podcasting. Little did I know that I would get the most utility and compliments out of having just one thing. Ever since I have used this as my all-in-one affordable but remarkable solution to recording podcast episodes, professional voice overs, and even music videos. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for just plain old awesome audio quality for a very reasonable price.
I own two of these microphones for use when I have a guest in-studio for podcast episodes. For the price, this mic produces pro level audio and am very happy with what it produces.
This book was with me for many bus rides from home to work when I had a 7-7 day job at an advertising agency. Every morning and evening on my bus ride I would read this. It is a book that helps you in discovering what your “life quest” is. I didn’t even fully finish it before it gave me the final straw motivation to quit my job for good. Thanks Chris, this book was amazing.
This book is a huge inspiration for me and my online presence. Chris gives real life example, after example, after example. He gives some of the most tangible and real advice on starting a solopreneur start-up for cheap and setting it up for real success. I would HIGHLY recommend you picking up a copy of this book and reading it cover to cover. Let me know what you think of the book when you’re done 🙂
Odds are you have probably heard of this book before if you have any interest in entrepreneurship or extreme lifestyle design. I love this book (I have the audiobook of it). As with everything in life, you need to be your own judge of what works for you. Tim Ferris recommends a ton of things in this book to help you streamline your work so you can spend less times on stuff that isn’t what you want to do. In all, I have found that my productivity has increased EXTREMELY and my lifestyle and happiness levels are through the roof.
