“Sorry sir, your credit card transaction failed”
“Please try again”, I asked the cashier in a nervous voice.
“I’m sorry, it seems your credit card is still declined”
This was real. I had no money left, absolutely zilch.
The date was April 14th, 2008. My credit card was maxed out at $33,598. My bank account completely overdrawn. I had officially hit a all-time financial rock bottom and the prospect of a day without being able to pay the rent loomed like a dark storm cloud on the horizon.
Exactly a year later, I was trekking the highest mountains on earth in Nepal, breathing in fresh air, feeling freedom in every cell of my body.
It was April 2009, and I was on the first leg of my non-stop round the world trip. A trip which had lasted nearly four brilliant years and extended from the island world of Southeast Asia to the remote corners of south America.
No, I did not win the lottery or inherit a fortune that year, nor did I start channeling the power of positive thinking to get checks in the mail.
What I did do, however, was use the power of decision.
On that fateful day of April 14th, 2008, when on all the financial chips were down, I decided to turn my life around and create financial freedom for myself, step-by-step, from the ground up.
I gave myself exactly one year.
It worked, and in a little bit less than a year, I was financially and location independent.
This new freedom meant that I didn’t need to look for a job upon my return home to Australia. In fact, I didn’t even have to go back to Australia. I could choose to go wherever and do whatever I wanted on any given day….
What EXACTLY happened that year? How was I able to achieve complete financial freedom from excessive debt in less than a year?
I’m planning to write a book about it, titled One Year to FREEDOM: A life-changing roadmap for creating financial & location independence in one year.
The book will shed light on what I believe is be the best way to achieve financial freedom. It will take you step-by-step through the process of setting such an ambitious goal in such a short time span, the necessary mindset shifts you’d need, the habits you’d have to adopt, and the relationships you’d want to create.
I will outline a framework for escaping the modern rat race and creating multiple online income streams, a framework that helped me to travel the world non-stop for close to four years.
But to make it happen I need your help.
There is no point writing a full-length page book if nobody reads it so I decided to reverse the process and approach things a little bit differently.
Here’s the deal: if you think you might be interested to read a book about obtaining financial & location independence in one year, type in your email address below and click “Yes, I’d be interested!”
For every 50 people that show interest and sign up their email above, I’ll commit to writing another chapter. When this post generates at least 500 people who are genuinely interested, I’ll write the book and share with you my backstory for the launch.
PLUS, as a token of my appreciation for those who enter their email above, I’ll also throw in a few extra perks along with the purchase of the book. Valuable gifts that will give you the extra edge on your freedom journey.
Oh, one more thing… if you want me to write the book faster, simply share this link with your friends and help me get your life-changing roadmap in your hands as fast as I can type.
Well, this is going to be fun, let’s see what happens!
* UPDATE: It has been decided. I'm writing the book. ~500 of you voted YES with their email (Thank YOU!) so there is no way around it. The book wants to be written 🙂
Plan is to finish it before my birthday in September, make it available a few months later to those who subscribed to my list, rewrite if needed, and then self-publish again around the end of the 2016 year.
Not too long to go. Wish me luck!
