There’s one question I get asked more than all the other questions combined. No, it’s not a question about travels, although I do get asked those fairly often, too. That question is: “James, how do you fund your travels around the world?”
It’s a great question. Obviously, as you can already guess, I don’t have a regular 9-5 job. I don’t freelance remotely. I don’t work for anyone else. I don’t have a boss that I report to.
Answer: I work for myself. I run multiple online businesses. Although you’ve learned about me through this site—Maverick Traveler—that is actually just one of the many sites/brands I run. Each of these sites provides me with certain value and sells a certain product or service, giving me a certain income every month.
The income allows me to live anywhere in the world, while pursuing my interests and passions such as practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Brazil, sunbathing out in beautiful Southern Thai beaches, or surfing on the amazing beaches in Bali.
Once upon a time this type of life was a mere dream, a fantasy, something that I thought would be impossible to achieve. Now it’s a life that I’m living every second of every hour of every day of my life. It’s very real. As real as it gets.
In order to live the life you want—an unconventional life—you must do unconventional things. That means you have switch away from the 9-5 mindset and internalize the location-independent mindset. It’s a mindset where you work as much as you need, a mindset where you’re building your own dream instead of helping someone else build theirs.
In fact, there has never been a better time to start a location-independent business. We’re living in the most open society in the history of mankind. Everyone has access to the Internet and the unlimited information and knowledge that comes with it. Everyone can register a domain on the Internet for a couple of bucks, get hosting and build out a business for free.
Starting a business shouldn’t be hard, yet people stumble on it all the time.
Okay, so how do you actually build a viable business?
The keyword is value.
Do something interesting and useful, and then package it in a way that’s useful to others. In exchange for this value, you get something called money. Everybody wins.
Of course, the above is far easier said than done. Part of that is because there’re a bunch of “minor” things I’m omitting from the discussion, things like coming up with a great idea, zeroing in on your unique value proposition (UVP), marketing, selling, user acquisition, and a bunch of other things you must master to succeed.
A profitable business is like a finely tuned engine, where all the pistons are firing perfectly and all components are working in symphony with each other.
Beyond the 9-5
This is my story. Ever since quitting my lucrative and high-paying Silicon Valley job about ten years ago, I’ve been traveling around the world full time while running a series of location independent businesses. I’ve been fortunate enough that my travels have taken me to over 85 countries. (I’m currently writing this from Kiev, Ukraine).
I failed and succeeded. Then failed again. And then ultimately succeeded. Over time, through lots and lots of trial and error, I managed to learn what works.
For the past five years, I’ve been mentoring lots of guys on building their own location-independent businesses. Each time, we sat down, focused on their experience, knowledge and passion. Then, we designed a business model that enables them to do what they love, while adding immense value to other people’s lives. It’s a win/win for everyone.
All in all, I’ve helped hundreds of guys transform their passions and interests into a viable and very profitable businesses.
The result is this course. It’s a course I started working on in the beginning of this year while living in Bali, Indonesia. I continued working on it while living in Chiang Mai, aka the Digital Nomad Capital of the World. There, I connected with many digital nomads, learned their struggles and challenges, and then integrated everything that I’ve learned back into the course.
For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been putting in 16-hour days, trying to finish and tidy everything up.
Maverick Entrepreneur Bootcamp Video Course
The Maverick Entrepreneur Bootcamp Video Course covers everything you need to build a location-independent business tailored to your passions and interests from scratch.
There are hours of video footage that covers stuff like:
- Brainstorming the perfect idea
- Finding your unique value proposition
- Building a bulletproof brand
- The science of marketing to the masses
- Building products and services that people crave
- Monetizing those products and services
- Selling like a pro
- And much, much more…
Of course, there are all kinds of courses on building your independent business. This course is different. The objective of this course is to focus in on your passions and interests and leverage them towards building a viable business. It’s the complete opposite of doing anything just to make some money. That’s what your miserable 9-5 job was for, remember?
This course is an interactive video course, where each module covers a crucial part of the business-building process. At the end of each module, there’s a summary of what you’ve learned and exercises that you need to complete before you go to the next module.
This course is my most monumental work yet. It’s bigger in scope than anything I’ve done in the past. It embodies absolutely everything that I learned about running location-independent businesses while traveling the world for 10 years, right after quitting the dreaded rat race. To say that I’m extremely proud of this work would be a huge understatement.
But that’s not all…

Let me ask you something: how would you feel if you had the blueprint to turn your passion and interests into an extra $500/month, $1,000/month, $2,000/month or more? My students are easily making that much.
I can tell you from experience that such income is more than enough to live comfortably in many of the great places around the world such as Kiev, Ukraine; Medellin, Colombia; Bali, Indonesia; and Chiang Mai, Thailand. Not to mention many other fantastic destinations.
And earning an extra $500 or $1,000/mo is extremely doable thanks to the Internet which provides you with an insatiable audience that’s hungry for your products and services.
