Greetings from Michigan! I’ll be here for short stopover practicing what I preach. But I have something important to share …
I’m going to tell you right now, up front, that if you’re looking for a magic pill, this is not for you. I believe in honesty in marketing and don’t want to waste your time.
A brief synopsis of what’s inside How To Live Anywhere …
How to get started with a niche business that you can run from anywhere using my 90 Day Action Plan.
The logistics of true live anywhere, do anything, freedom. How to actually find apartments, meet new people, and how to work from any country you choose.
The Not-enough-alitis cure to help you hone in and get exactly what you want out of life.
And much more, but first …
A brief story of Ridiculously Extraordinary Freedom …
This is the true story of 2 personal friends. Both are regular guys who know what I do and have had total access to my knowledge over the past 10 years I’ve worked online.
I taught the first friend everything I know about running an online business. I would answer questions when asked and I left him to his own devices.
I taught the second friend everything I know about running an online business. I gave him guidance when asked and left him to his own devices as well.
So what happened?
Friend One didn’t do anything with what I taught him. Friend Two took what I taught him and in less than a year pulled in job replacing income in a few hours/week.
There is no magic pill. Friend One didn’t do anything with what I taught him and he got nothing out of it. Friend Two took action and changed his life.
Here’s the thing: Friend Two likes his job and doesn’t want to quit. He runs his Freedom business on the side.
Ridiculously Extraordinary Freedom and learning How To Live Anywhere is about options. If you don’t want to travel you don’t have to. If want to travel you can. If you want to sell everything and live like a vagabond (like me) you can do that too.
No matter what your situation in life there is a way to make your dreams happen.
Turning Dreams Into Reality
I started working for myself at age 19, 10 years ago. I was a University student, but was not a fan of University. Mostly, the classes were easy, boring, and only taught me how to become a number. A cog in the machine of society.
It’s very difficult to keep the Freedom Mindset when everybody around you is pounding home the get a “good” job and settle down mindset.
The first year or so of my entrepreneurial existence wasn’t particularly successful. But I was learning a lot from my mistakes.
Slowly, I started to see success. By the time I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in 2003 I was pulling in more income online than the average US citizen was making in their day jobs. It was then that I decided I would never use my degree or work a day job for a single day in my life.
2 years later I had a 2,500 square foot home, a BMW (paid for in cash), and all the trappings of the “good life.”
But I was miserable.
My businesses were doing better than ever before but it didn’t matter. I went through a long dark period.
Can Money Really Buy Happiness?
It wasn’t until about 2 years ago that I finally began to turn my life around. I realized that money doesn’t directly buy happiness.
Living paycheck to paycheck is not a fun way to live and I’m not advocating poverty.
What I mean is that once you have your needs met, striving to earn more and more will not make you happier. In fact, like me, it might make you miserable.
Money Is No Longer The Goal, It Just Lets Me Do What I Want
Instead of using money as the end goal, I use it as a means to doing the fun things I want to do, like learning how to hand build guitars in India …
Building a guitar in Goa, India (The finished product is amazing!)
Or learning how to cook awesome vegan food in Thailand …
Vegan cooking class in Chiang Mai, Thailand
Or staying in a decommissioned Jail house in Christchurch, New Zealand …
Jailhouse Hostel in Christchurch, NZ (No smiling allowed in jail!)
And going to the most beautiful place I have ever seen on this earth, Lake Tekapo, New Zealand …
The most beautiful place on earth. Lake Tekapo, NZ
Over the past 2 years I’ve developed a new course based on what I call Ridiculously Extraordinary Freedom. It’s about working hard, working smart, and maybe most importantly, working happy.
I call this course How To Live Anywhere: The Official Guide To Ridiculously Extraordinary Freedom. This isn’t just an eBook. It’s a complete immediately-downloadable method for life transformation based on 10 years of living and working online.
How To Live Anywhere Core Training
The core training in How To Live Anywhere is split into 3 modules covering Philosophy, Travel & Living, and Money.
In the Philosophy module you will learn:
3 unique ways to Live Anywhere. Living anywhere doesn’t mean you have to leave your roots. You can still have a home base.
How you can live anywhere even if you have a family. Small kids? A dog? A house with a mortgage? It’s all possible. I blow away the myths and I can’ts of living anywhere.
How to conquer your limiting beliefs.
Why a backup plan is toxic to your success. Here’s how to change your world by having a plan and rocking it hard.
How to dream big and dream weird, including a personal story about the Rollercoaster Tour of the USA.
In the Travel & Living module you will learn:
How I fly international Business Class for almost free using frequent flier miles that I acquire without flying.
What free Web site do I use to keep track of frequent flier miles so I can see them at a glance? It’s on page 21.
My favorite Web sites for searching flight deals (when I don’t have frequent flier miles or for short haul flights). I use the little known international Web site on page 23 and absolutely love it.
How to make friends if you’re traveling solo.
The quick process for finding out exactly which vaccinations you need in your selected destination. It’s a quick process and some countries have vaccination requirements. That is, they won’t let you inside their borders without having a certain vaccination. Find out ahead of time so you’re not stuck in an airport and sent back home.
The one simple Web site that will help you with visas to whichever country you plan on visiting. Sometimes you won’t need a visa. Sometimes it’s a pain in the ass to get a visa. Sometimes you have to leave a country every 30 days (known as a Visa run), which is what I had to do in Thailand. Pages 19-20 have your answer.
How to connect with locals and other travelers anywhere in the world. There is nothing like plopping into a new city where you don’t know anybody and immediately being whisked away for an all-night backyard birthday party. :)
How to get backpacker discounts whether you’re 18 or 88, and whether you’re a backpacker or not. Check page 23 for the details.
In the Money module you will learn:
In this module we get into how to fund your lifestyle with a Freedom Business.
How to determine what you really want out of life with the Not Enough-alitis Cure. Do you to stay in your current city/country, but just want to quit your job? Or maybe you want to own a luxury car (BMWs are nice, just not for me anymore). Or is your goal is to travel to far reaching corners of Earth? And hey, even if you want something in between, this will help.
Why Freedom allows you do do exactly what you want whenever you want. I once happily spent $1915 on a premium plane ticket (before I knew how to get free flights with frequent flier miles) and then stayed on people’s couches and in dorm rooms while traveling around Australia/New Zealand. (Again, Freedom allows me to do what I want. Sometimes that means spending a lot of money, sometimes that means hanging with awesome people for free.)
How to determine which Freedom business is right for you. There are many options, there is no right way for everybody. There is a right way for you.
How to quickly research and launch an infoproduct. Most importantly, you’ll figure out if what you want to launch is a good niche.
The focused, 90 day massive action plan to getting your first Freedom business launched.
The secrets to Pruning, Planning, and Doing. If you follow these steps you’ll put yourself on the track to Freedom.
How to create small niche Web sites that you simply sell every few months. I’ve sold sites that were making very little money ($50/month) for $700. They’re easy to create and easier to sell. But there are some rules you have to follow to make sure you do this right.
I even cover why I don’t like the create/sell strategy and what you should do instead!
How to outsource your work so you can multiply your efforts. I’ve been involved in outsourcing for 6 years and I can tell you that without it I would never have reached the level of success I have.
A little technique called Hubpages on Steroids. With this I show you how you don’t even need a Web site to pull in cash. I include screen shots because proof is important.
How to get other people to pay for your Ridiculously Extraordinary Life. This is a really cool strategy that I don’t currently use, but have used successfully in the past, and there are lots of people who use it today.
The Anatomy of a $1,542.24 Profit In 24 Hours Affiliate Promotion
Take a look at 3 real life examples of affiliate promotions in the 12 page guide, Anatomy of a 4 Figure Affiliate Promotion (or Why You Don’t Need A Massive Audience To Make Massive Cash).
All 3 of these affiliate promotions were done to the exact same small audience …
Promo #1 results: $78.00
Promo #2 results: $387.60
Promo #3 results: $1,542.24 in 24 hours
Again, these were all done to the exact same audience via my RidiculouslyExtraordinary.com blog, which is not a very large blog by any means. At the time of Promo #3 I only had 383 newsletter subscribers!
I explain it all in detail in the guide, but I approached each promotion quite differently. And obviously saw completely different results.
You will learn:
How to write product reviews that rock and sell by being ethical and honest. This is important. I don’t believe in selling anything I don’t feel good about.
The simple secret to Priming your list. Use this and your results will explode.
The honest truth about list size. You really do not need a huge list or massive audience to make lots of cash. I sure didn’t.
How To Live Anywhere Audio Series
The Long Haul HTLA audio series consists of 8 mp3s and we cover:
How to sell without selling by only selling to buyers. There is no sense in trying to sell to someone who doesn’t want what you’re selling. This will help you figure that out.
Why seeking knowledge is one of the most important aspects of running a Freedom Business. I’ve spent upwards of $40,000 on non-University education. That is how important seeking knowledge truly is.
How to build an empire. We’ll talk about the core strategies you need to build a sustainable freedom business that will grow year in and year out.
2 ways to get what you want. There really are only 2 ways to get whatever you want out of life. I cover them here.
3 ways to live anywhere. Living anywhere means different things to different people. These are the 3 possibilities for living anywhere.
The anatomy of a 4 figure affiliate promotion. This is the accompaniment to the 12 page report and goes into extra detail into why I made so much money with a such a small audience. (This audio is part of the Long Haul version of How To Live Anywhere.)
How To Live Anywhere Interview Series
I found some of the best and brightest people making a living online and interviewed them in 10-20 minute focused audio interviews.
Leo Babauta from ZenHabits.net – Leo, who runs one of the biggest blogs online, is moving his family (wife and 6 kids) from Guam to San Francisco, California all due to his Freedom business. We discuss the importance of focus and how it has allowed him to create a truly Free lifestyle.
Everett Bogue from FarBeyondTheStars.com – Everett quit his day job with just $3,000 in the bank and figured out how to make a living online in less than a year. We talk about how he made it happen and how you can follow in his footsteps.
Benny Lewis from FluentIn3Months.com – Benny is a language hacker. But after interviewing him I learned he’s also a job hacker. If you need to work a job while traveling the world Benny has the tips to make it happen. He’s been traveling non-stop for 7 years!
JimCockrum from SilentJim.com – Jim talks about a simple affiliate promotion that pulled in almost 6 figures. When it comes to building trust with an audience, Jim knows his stuff.
Brian Evans from DailyConversions.com – Brian is a list building genius. His goals are about building trust and providing value while making money. (This is the only text interview in the series.)
Henri Junttila from WakeUpCloud.com – Henri built up a blog of over 1,000 readers in 101 days. Now his blog is about double that size. We talk about the importance of hard work and focusing on one niche to truly make money.
Jonathan Mead from IlluminatedMind.net – Jonathan quit his day job in 2009 and has been making a living in what he calls the “zero hour workweek” since then. Why zero hour? When you love what you do, it’s not work. We discuss how to figure out when to quit your day job and how to find your passions.
Grace Gardner, who runs a Freedom business without a Web site! – Grace is an amazing story. When I put the word out I was looking to interview rock stars who can live and work anywhere she contacted me and asked why I’m only focusing on people who have Web sites. :) We discuss how you can run a business from your computer without owning a Web site.
Lisa Sonora Beam from LisaSonoraBeam.com – Lisa is a published author who started a design business in San Francisco in 2003 … without office space! All of her employees worked from home, from various cities/states/countries. A truly location independent business in a traditionally non location independent niche.

What Others Are Saying
- Charley Forness from YouSimplified.net
Charley is an awesome guy with a wife and triplets. Hear HIS version of freedom in this video.
“For those who want to break free from the corporate rut and do what they really want to do in life, go places, meet people, whatever, this guide is solid gold.” – Nathan Marley
I’ve been following Karol’s blog for a few months when I first heard about HTLA, and I jumped at the opportunity to get a copy.
For those who want to break free from the corporate rut and do what they really want to do in life, go places, meet people, whatever, this guide is solid gold. It’s got advice on how to find a place in a new city/country (long or short term), how to meet locals, as well as (probably the most important thing on everyone’s mind) how to finance your new life. I say “new life”, because at its core it’s really about creating a new lifestyle for yourself in which you do the shit you love to do. Anyway, he’s even put in a step-by-step guide on how to make money through the internet.
For people who’ve never left their country (probably most Americans), it has info on visas (not the credit card) — what are they, how to get them, why are they necessary as well as info on vaccinations, other international travel advice.
The use-value of this guide is worth more than a bottle of awesome sauce (which is made from unicorn tears and diamonds), so you know you’re getting a good deal.
Simply purchasing this guide won’t give you the life you want in the country you want – you have to get off your ass and make it happen. But if you have the drive, determination, willpower to make the change, this will show you step-by-step how to start living the life you want, wherever in the world that may be.
- Nathan Marley
How To Live Anywhere rocked my world. The book is loaded with practical tips and advice. Karol is open, honest and shares amazing information. Pick it up today. You won’t be sorry.
- Tammy Strobel from RowdyKittens.com
How to Live Anywhere reminded me of the kid selling candy bars for a quarter cheaper than the snack bar in 1st grade. Sure, you knew some of the basic principles and you knew the kid was making profits, but you didn’t put in the effort to learn the game and capitalize on your own. By purchasing How to Live Anywhere, you will gain the knowledge to not only free your life from the constraints of mediocrity, but develop the skills to become as successful as that first grader’s candy business and then some. I highly recommend picking up a copy of How to Live Anywhere if you want to start controlling your own future today.
- David Damron from TheMinimalistPath.com
