Want to know the specific tools we use to create our best life?
Glad you asked! You know us as testers, people who vet our choices and learn from our experiences. That extends to the products we use to create a lifestyle and business we love. Below are our favorites, those resources we use on a regular basis to enjoy our life to the fullest. These all come with the An Uncluttered Life seal of approval, and we’ve written a short note about why we like each product so you can decide if it fits your needs.
Eagle Creek Packing Cubes: We didn’t have these for the first few years of our travel. We just thought it was overkill, too much prep for the free lifestyle we wanted to live. But once you’ve packed and unpacked a dozen or a hundred times, you’ll appreciate the convenience of quickly locating what you need.We were given these as a gift two years ago and now wonder how we traveled without them for so long. These are the best things in our packs now to help us get and stay organized. We can pack and unpack quickly, and if we stay in a place with limited storage we can still keep our clothes tidy – an important thing to remember when you don’t have everyday access to a washing machine or hangers.
Starting a Business
Freedom Plan: People ask us all the time how we created our income to live this lifestyle. Other than our savings plan, which we wrote about in Dream Save Do, we honestly did not have a plan for making money. If we had, we’ve have made it a lot faster! That’s why we love our friend Natalie Sisson’s program. She is far more savvy than us at teaching what it takes to make a location-independent business work, and her coaching program is the best around. We recommend it without hesitation (and wish it had been around when we were stumbling through the steps to create our own business, delaying our success by YEARS due to just not having any kind of guideline).
In truth, we kinda hate her for not having this available back when we needed it. But we try not to get petty about it. 🙂
If you want to be able to live and work anywhere in the world, make more money, work less and have more freedom all while making an impact in the world then THIS is the program that will give you the action plan for making it happen. Click here to get started with the Freedom Plan™.
Regardless of what type of business you will be starting, one of the first actions you will need to take is what domain you will want to purchase and where to host it. For us, we have been using Bluehost for the last several years for each new business we’ve started. They provide good customer service, a great price, and you can be up and running with your new site in just a few minutes.
We recommend going with their Plus package as it gives you more options long-term and the ability to host multiple domains on a single hosting account. If you are struggling with where to host your new idea we highly recommend checking out Bluehost’s solutions as we are sure they are going to suit your new startup’s needs.
