Being a Location Rebel with Sean Ogle


“Forget about building a business around your passion. Focus on the things that enable you to do things you are passionate about” – Sean Ogle

Sean Ogle is a great example of someone who has reinvented himself with his own online business. After following the normal path and getting a job in finance he had what he calls a “quarter life crisis” where he decided to completely change his path. He took off to Bali where he started his own blog and internet business. Surprisingly within a few months he had a sustainable income from his business that he could take with him anywhere. Since then he has been concentrating on accomplishing all of the things on his bucket list while traveling the world.
