NOTE: Info has been updated for the 2017 Paradise Pack sale!
Ditching the 9-to-5 in order to travel the world is something many cubicle-dwellers dream about. (I should know, because I used to be one of them!)
While I am a firm believer that you don't HAVE to quit your job in order to travel, I know that it's still a goal for a lot of people.
I can't tell you how often I get emails and comments and messages from people telling me they wish they could do what I do. I won't lie: it's taken years and a lot of work (and quite a bit of luck) to get to where I am now — but it's certainly not unachievable for other people.
If you dream of ditching the 9-to-5 in favor of working for yourself and traveling the world, I'm here to tell you that it's not easy, but it's also not impossible.
You may be wondering where the heck to start, though. Making a huge lifestyle shift takes time, after all, and sometimes requires you to hone/learn new skills. This can be incredibly daunting – but doesn't have to be if you know where to start.
The Paradise Pack
Enter the Paradise Pack.
If you've followed my blog for a while, you may have heard me talk about the Paradise Pack before. This resource bundle goes on sale for one week each year, and one week only. The items included in the Paradise Pack are different each year, but two things always remain the same: it's always a great deal, and the resources are always top-notch.
Valued at $2,600 this year, this bundle of ebooks and online courses is designed to help you travel more and become location independent – a perfect stepping stone on your way to that dream lifestyle!
And the best part? It's all available for just $197.
The resources included are in the Paradise Pack all written/developed by people who have been there, done that, and become very successful – meaning they're excellent people to learn from.

Is it really worth it?
All told, this pack is worth more than $2400. But, like I said, you can get EVERYTHING for just $197. That's a ridiculously good deal – which is why I'm sharing it with you.
And, after promoting this annual pack for the last three years, I really do feel like this year's Paradise Pack is one of the most diverse and valuable ones I've seen so far. The resources are solid and the authors/instructors are legit.
Buying this resource pack won't automatically mean you can quit your job to travel, but it should definitely inspire you and get those creative juices flowing.
Get your Paradise Pack
The sale ONLY runs through the end of the day on June 5, 2017, so you'll need to act fast if you want to take advantage (and, believe me, you do!).
AND, to sweeten the deal, 10% of sales will go to two different charities: Pencils of Promise, which helps builds schools for children in developing countries, and Travel Access Project, which promotes travel as education. Feels great to give back, right?
