Lifestyle Hacks, Travel Hacks and Business Hacks | Danny Flood | Episode 58

  • How do you design your dream lifestyle and then actually live it?
  • In other words, how do you fit your business around your incredible life rather than doing what so many entrepreneurs do, which is work super hard and have lifestyle come a distant second?

That’s what we’re going to talk about today as we discuss lifestyle hacks, travel hacks and entrepreneur hacks with Danny Flood – author of the book ‘Buy Your Own Island’.

Danny Flood

Danny FloodDanny Flood is the author of a very exciting sounding book: ‘Buy Your Own Island’ – which is a lifestyle and travel “hacking” book.

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.

And, during that time, Danny has also started starting three location-independent businesses so he’s truly someone who’s living the laptop lifestyle so I’m really looking forward to learning how he’s doing it.

An online business resource Danny loves is…

  • Listening to interviews with entrepreneurs (like those on this podcast), learning their lessons and insights and realising that you’re not alone on your entrepreneurial journey.

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

Maria’s business generates multiple six figures with very low overheads and yet it allows her tremendous freedom – after a lot of hard work she is truly able to live life and do business on her own terms. Way to go Maria!

In this show Maria shares how she did this and talks about some of the key strategies she uses such as high-level networking, working with high value clients and building powerful JV (joint venture) relationships.
