I am KerryAnn and I am an Australian in my late 50’s who travels our great land for work and play. I like to do things in my own way. I started this blog 12 months ago, and it needs work so I aim at being more about teaching, rather than just rambling about me.
My aim is to learn how to, as well as help others be able to, live a life of freedom with enough money to make life pleasant. As I find things to try I will be sharing with you. I have started putting together a membership website with lots of helpful information as well.
I am a bit of a note taker and have for many years kept an informal journal of my life and my feelings and actions at the time. I always noted my financial situation and how I tried to overcome debt, or at least live with it, as well as live cheaply.
Eventually, we sold our business and house, cleared all debt, bought a motorhome and hit the road. We now travel throughout Australia all year, with a business selling goods, and I want to share my experiences and finds with others. I aim to slow down and move towards an online business.
I am happy not to have a house to clean and maintain with a garden to tend and lawn to mow. Been there, got the T-shirt. It was a lot of work. I want the freedom to choose where I go and when.
Over the years I have spent thousands of hours researching, reading, watching TV shows and attending programs learning how to do everything better. This past year that has been turned towards online pursuits. In particular, how to make money online so that I can choose to slow down a little and smell the roses.
I have simplified my life and am a lot happier although I have put on too much weight over the years and have started to make some changes to ensure my total happiness into the future.
I travel across Australia in a motorhome with an 8m x 2.5m living space. We tow a car behind us. This means that we can stop in one place and use the smaller vehicle to run around in.
As I have had no passive income, I have worked more and had less time to enjoy life. My aim in 2018 is to work towards less face to face selling, less information overload, and more forward action in my online world. I need to eat, so can’t give up my day job -yet.
I wrote about my history in my first blog post, which is here. Rather than repeat myself you can see details of how I was always into travel and moving around. I owned businesses which I sold to get where I am today.
I am still writing notes as well as attending lots of webinars and watching youtube, trying to make a plan of action. For most of 2017, I just stumbled along trying to put things together. This website is the one thing that I have got up and running, although it is not great. I plan to build my online presence in 2018 and will record it as I go.
As part of my online research I have been continuing to look at ways to earn money online not just in Australia, but around the world. Amazon is still on the cards, and I have booked a trip to China in the near future looking for product ideas.
My original goals do need a little updating and I will be working on revisiting this over the next week so that I can make some New Year’s Resolutions to focus on heading into 2018.
I have started to build a social media following and will continue doing so in 2018. I will be writing about what actions I am taking as I go. I hope this will help others as well as give me some focus.
Please feel free to comment on my posts, nice ones always welcome….
