As well as the book he has a magazine and podcast about lifestyle design, entrepreneurship, and travel and lifestyle hacking and that’s at OpenWorld Magazine.

The book, podcast, and magazine are based on his international adventures over the last 4 years in which he’s travelled to over 30 countries.

Danny‘s favourite quote:

“There are many who find a good alibi far more attractive than an achievement. For an achievement does not settle anything permanently. We still have to prove our worth anew each day; we have to prove that we are as good today as we were yesterday. But when we have a valid alibi for not achieving anything we are fixed, so to speak, for life.” — Eric Hoffer
