November 25th, 2007 — Traveling tips I use
I’m sitting in Kuala Lumpur International Airport writing this post and thought it appropriate to write about flying cheaply. I’ve met a fellow surfer from the Gold Coast and he has paid almost 3 times the price of the same ticket that I’ve got.
He paid $2515 for his round-trip from the same airport I left from, same plane class. same everything. I paid $985 inc taxes. That’s for a round-trip ticket from The Gold Coast in Australia, via KL, Malaysia, over to Manila, Philippines, back to KL and back to Australia!

Had a few shark attacks here in Byron Bay over the last month.
My probability of being attacked is low even though the longfin Mako’s speed has been recorded at over 60 mph in short bursts, its full-grown length is over 4 m (13 ft) and they can jump up to 6 m (20 ft) in the air. On my end I have a very sharp spare car key in my leggy and can move pretty quickly when motivated.
November 21st, 2007 — Earn while you travel, Internet marketing, Productivity, Tools I use
I don’t normally review new IM products so quickly but this one has saved me about a days work on my adwords campaigns over the last two hours. Now I only purchased it 3 hours ago so the learning curve is not steep. In fact its the opposite. Its downright easy as pie…
A new PPC tool I’ve tested for the last 6 hours is Google Assassin. It has a dashboard called the Affiliates Den which is stacked with heaps of very powerful, easy to use and time saving tools for Pay-Per-Click advertisers (especially Clickbank Affiliates although I don’t really use it for that).
November 17th, 2007 — Earn while you travel, Outsourcing
“Delegate Yourself” – I’ve been doing some research for a new eBook about ‘Serious Remote Working’ and came across Ryan Norbauer. He has written a tight and punchy 2 part piece on the 43folders blog about personal productivity and enlightened outsourcing after he read “The 4-Hour Workweek” by best selling author, Tim Ferriss.
He humorously explains his transformation, over several months, from being an obsessively micro-managing, perfectionist entrepreneur who reserved even the most miniscule tasks for himself, to someone who gets assistance on an almost daily basis from no fewer than fourteen outside sources, from New Delhi to New York.

Work from Palawan, Penang or Paris – with Pat O’Bryan’s “Portable Empire” Solution.
The thing about becoming a successful online marketer is knowing what the happening dudes are doing (and their blueprint), and then trialling, testing and actively deploying their methods.
So many people just keep buying all the latest courses but don’t follow through. The thing is if you apply yourself 100% with many of the better courses which I’m compiling on this blog you will actually make money after 2-6 months
Easy for me to say as I have 150 staff with my own outsourcing company. That wasn’t always the case though…

For starters its fun to be somewhere else in the world, traveling and working. Look at Tim Ferriss and his number 1 bestseller – the 4 hour work week – this guy is living the dream. I’m talking scuba diving, rock climbing, cage fighting, mountain bike riding or best of all surfing in somewhere like Cloud 9 (Siargao or ‘Sugars’) in The Southern Philippines where I’ll be in late November 2007 (2 weeks to be exact;)
Here is one of my favorite ‘Work Abroad Sites’ that’s loaded with info about working overseas, investing abroad, jobs for expats and heaps of other miscellaneous stuff for the serious perpetual traveler – www.escapeartist.com

WarriorForum.com runs off Snit2 software and the forum has a coolass GUI stripped out in a simple red and black skin.

This got my lungs thinking for themselves finally.
I’d been practicing my breathing (deeply) whilst surfing after being recently dumped by a 10 foot wave in ByronBay but never really thought about breathing properly working on the computer. I’ve also noticed now I breathe differently in the countries I go to and realized that’s a mixture of pollution, air quality and most importantly how I breathe in the different environments I work in.
Breathing supplies over 99% of your entire oxygen and energy supply.

One of my mates owns a really cool hotel called NigiNigiToo’s on Boracay Island in The Philppines, where I lived for 6 months in 06 (my personal Boracay Island photo gallery is here).
Anyway I had work in Manila at the office and everything was crazy so the only answer was a week in Boracay Island about 500 klms south of the capital where a few of us were going diving.

I’ve been traveling a lot lately and have just got back to my shack on the beach in Byron Bay Australia (my photo site – not an ad). I digg it here so much. Endless surfing, warm, peaceful, clean, friendly, happy and loose.
I was catching a few waves this afternoon this afternoon with a bunch of dolphins and 3 whales that we’re breaching in what was either a feeding frenzy or some other kind of weird-ass whale love tryst. Sometimes I can’t believe I can leave my home office and be in the surf in about 4 minutes without going through one traffic light but it’s true.
