Vlog #14: How to Get Over Your Fear of Sales

Recently I’ve been working with my buddy David Anderson, to put together a couple new blueprints on selling for our Location Rebel members. When it comes to talking to people on the phone, this guy is the man. This past week we were skiing together in Vail, Colorado – and rather than just showing nothing but gratuitous shots of us busting backflips in the terrain park, and plowing through acres of fresh powder – I figured I’d try and shoot something that might actually be useful to you. So in this week’s vlog, along with a few shots of us on the slopes – David, our friend Madi, and I, each share our best tip for getting over your fear

The Rocky Road to Creating Your First iOS App

Today, anyone with a great idea, involved in a startup, freelancing or a part of a small business is considered an entrepreneur. Yet, millions of entrepreneurs fail because they’re unable to get connected with the necessary resources to flourish. My name is Vincent Vitale.

Location 180 Digs Episode 6: Shangri-La Maldives Treehouse Villa

So my plan for the vlog this week got thrown out the window for two reasons. The first, was the day I was going to shoot most of it turned out to be whiteout conditions in the morning here in Vail. The second reason was that when I arrived here my tripod had been snapped in half on the flight. I’m not even sure how that happens, but the fact remains, it was going to be tough to shoot either of the videos I had in mind. So I moved to the next best thing: Location 180 Digs. I still hadn’t edited one of the videos from the Maldives, so I put that together with a few shots from Vail

8 Alternatives to the 9 to 5 Schedule that Cater to the Solopreneur

Over the years my preferred work hours have continuously evolved. I’ve gone from the traditional 9 to 5 (or in my case 7:30 to 5), to being a night owl, morning person, and just about everything in between. I’ve found each of these different work hours to have it’s pros and cons, and each has served me well for different purposes. For instance, while living in Bangkok and working on my first product, Overcoming the Fear of Uncertainty, I’d often start writing around 9:00 at night with a gin and tonic in hand, and finish in the early hours of the morning. These days my preferred workday shifts depending on what I’m working on and where I am, but most often it

Why Thousands of Digital Nomads Failed to Sustain the Lifestyle

2007 might have been my most important year ever. The stock market was at an all time high. I was graduating college and entering the real world. And the Four Hour Workweek was published by Tim Ferriss. For myself (and many others), this was the beginning of a perfect storm of circumstances that would forever change the direction of our lives. While I was in college the terms “lifestyle business,” “solopreneur,” and “digital nomad” didn’t exist – or at least not in the widely used ways they are today. I studied finance and learned all sorts of things that would help my dreams of travel and entrepreneurship. Things such as the Black-Scholes options model, how to read balance sheets for
