Almost Fearless

Holiday Survival Kit


If you’re faced with awkward family gatherings this year, it’s possible you’re thinking: I wonder if I could just move to Spain and be done with it. Or how do I find a nice quiet beach to hide out on for the next four years?


I feel ya. For this week only, we’re giving away a few things to get you started:

European Residency for Americans– the country by country guide on getting a long-term residency permit in European countries – specifically aimed at freelancers and the self-employed. (PDF)

The Wireless Generation
– the documentary we filmed in 2010 about people who work online to travel the world. One hour long. (video)


30 Ways in 30 Days to Redesign Your Life + Travel the World– How to get started when it comes to downsizing your life, saving money and planning long-term travel. (PDF)

Over at We Create, we’re also offering some of our courses at a discount:


Building a Thriving Blog– My blogging course is relaunching (it relaunches twice a year) and all members get “forever” access, which means they get regularly updated materials every year. It’s a 12-week blogging course that people have graduated from to go on to get book deals, make a full-time living blogging and even started traveling around the world. Use code “launchyourblog” to get an extra 10% off.


Learn to Draw– My husband Drew teaches you how to draw in this 30 day course that will literally turn you into a proficient sketchbook artist.


Selling Your Art with Print-on-Demand– Also taught by Drew, he’s been selling tons of art and illustrations on t-shirts, posters, stickers, and various other products for years, and in this course he teaches you how to leverage platforms like Redbubble and Society6 (and even Zazzle) to make a passive income selling your art online.

Or you can join me during on of these free webinars next week:

Hopefully you’re not faced with a holiday you have to survive, but if so, I find the best way to get through any tough spots is to look towards the future, and create things. That’s what I’m doing right now.

Of course, I can’t give all this stuff away forever, so I’ll be taking down the links by December 1st. Hope you enjoy and if you do end up on that beach, working under a thatch roof, wearing a sarong – then I want to hear about it!

I’ve been dragging my husband around the world since 2008 always with the promise that, “Yes, Drew there will definitely be hammocks there.”
