We can’t thank you enough for checking out The Paradise Pack and coming here to learn more about who is behind all of this.
(We always check out the ‘About’ pages on websites too!)
Like you, we absolutely love traveling, and have a true passion for helping others discover different ways to explore the world.
But we’ve always had a hard time finding one place to get everything we needed to not only travel more, but to create a model of sustainable travel through the creation of location independent businesses.
The Paradise Pack is jam-packed with all of the things we wish we had when we started out. We worked hard to bring together this wonderful group of experts to help you see as much of the planet as you desire.
To top it off, 10% from each sale will be split between two awesome charities – Pencils of Promise to help build a school for kids and The Travel Access Project to help fund education through travel. These are two world-class organizations and we encourage you to check them out. So far, we’ve raised over $50,000 for Pencils of Promise through this project. Thanks to your support, we’ve been able to build two schools for Pencils of Promise – one of which was recently finished.

Jason got psyched on Pencils of Promise when he hitchhiked all of Scotland to raise money for the organization.
He spent well over a decade living and working on the road managing events, tour managing a band and even a short stint as an adventure travel tour guide. It’s safe to say he is addicted to travel.
After taking a couple of years to live and work in Boulder, Colorado, he decided to build a location independent lifestyle and get back out on the road.
He first went Location Indie while freelancing as a business development consultant which lead to his first online business servicing the event marketing industry.
He currently teaches people how to travel the world on their terms on his top-rated podcast (2+ million downloads in 195 countries) and website Zero To Travel, and is the co-founder of Location Indie – a community of people helping each other kick ass in business and travel. He also co-hosts the Location Indie podcast with Travis.
Jason is based in Oslo, Norway and is doing his best to speak Norwegian without making too much of a fool out of himself around town. 🙂
Four years ago, Travis was living in Japan and knew he wanted to travel more. But there was no way he could travel as much as he wanted to on a teacher’s salary.
Plus, having “only” summers off wasn’t conducive to a schedule of constant travel!
So he started learning about all the ways to travel for less, including the golden goose: frequent flyer miles.
In three short years, he was able to earn over 2 million frequent flyer miles and travel to over 25 countries, all for much less than he ever dreamed.
He started Extra Pack of Peanuts to share this knowledge with the world as well as create an online business that he could run from anywhere, including the beach in Thailand.
In 2013, he added a podcast for those people too lazy to read, which has now become one of the top-rated travel podcasts on iTunes!
He’s ridden camels in the desert in India, scuba dived on the Great Barrier Reef, and drunk (lots of) wine in Tuscany – all made possible by the fact that they fly anywhere in the world for under $100.
He’s figured out how to run his six-figure online business successfully from a beachfront bungalow in Thailand, an inn in Prague, the rice fields of Bali, and a farmhouse in Florence and how to run it unsuccessfully from the internet-deprived country of Myanmar.
