15 Characteristics to Look for in Remote Teams

Note from Sean: More and more people are working in remote teams now. But, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t things you need to understand in order to get your remote teams working together smoothly. This post from Kayla shows you how to get it done.  Take it away, Kayla! — Working remotely from home is a dream for many people.

What I Learned from Doing a Daily Video Blog

I remember the first time I watched one of Casey Neistat’s daily vlogs. All I could think was “this guy is crazy.” I mean who on earth can come up with an interesting story, shoot the story, edit it, and post it every single day – while not sacrificing on quality and entertainment. Yet, day in and day out he did it – and I was transfixed. And the more I watched, the more I became intrigued. I started by creating a weekly vlog, which I did for about 4 months – and had a little bit of success with. And the more I thought about a daily vlog, the scarier the thought became. Until finally, one day, I decided to actually

How to Make Your First Dollar Online

How’s that for a generic title, huh?

How to Get Everything You Want in Life

Pretty bold statement in that headline, right? Well I think I can back it up. Yesterday I turned 31. I look at that number and while it’s a little bit scary, I can’t help feel good about everything I’ve accomplished over the last 7 years since leaving my job and setting out on my own. As I was reflecting back on the years and thinking about what to write for this post, I came to a pretty humbling realization. Up to this point in my life, I’ve pretty much gotten everything I’ve wanted in life – or at least the things I’d hoped to have up to this point. I have an incredible wife, amazing family and friends, a fantastic

Vlog 17 – What to Do Before You Move Abroad

Last summer my good friend and Location Rebel member Colin Pomeroy quit his job and moved to Thailand to pursue his own business. He came back this month for a wedding and I got a chance to ask him a few questions about his move and some of the things he wished he had done before he left. The place we were at was pretty loud, but I did my best to decipher the message 🙂 Also, I’m thinking about doing a daily video blog for 31 days to celebrate my 31st birthday. The thought of doing it it is terrifying, but is it something you’d actually be interested in? Let me know, and maybe we’ll make it happen 🙂
