Curious how we make money while traveling the world? One of my biggest passions is helping people become Digital Nomads. I’ve covered my Income Streams on my Podcast and Media Interviews quite extensively. However, for those who missed those resources, it’s been a combination of 4 major ingredients: 1) SAVING – we have used up a lot of our savings on our current Daddy Blogger World Tour. We do have some Emergency Money set aside as well as we consistently put money into all 3 of our Kids Education Funds every single month (this is non-negotiable). However, if you rely on savings alone, it will soon run out! 2) SELLING – before we left our hometown of Vancouver, BC, Canada we sold the majority of our stuff including our house, our car, our furniture, our electronics, our books, our event production gear, and much more! In fact, we only have about 5 boxes of sentimental stuff at my mom’s place. We have everything we need with us now! 3) SPONSORSHIPS – getting sponsored hotels, sightseeing, food, and transport has been extremely helpful on this trip as accommodation is usually the biggest expense when traveling. We have got sponsorships in the Philippines, Hong Kong, Dubai, South Africa, and for several places and sights in South and Central America 4) SALARY – I have now created 7 streams of consistent active and passive Online Income Streams including my Coaching Programs, Mastermind Groups, Online Courses, Podcasts, Virtual Summits, Travel Blogging, Affiliate Marketing, Kindle Book Sales, and YouTube Ad Revenue. I will be cutting back and focus on just the main ones. For those of you who love numbers and stats, YouTube has an overwhelming amount of data that they provide to their Content Creator Partners (like myself). I’m impressed that they keep such a detailed record of every view, every subscriber, every comment as well as graphs showing you major upward and downward trends. I don’t understand a lot of the specifics but you can clearly see the main numbers on a high level on the Screen Shots below: January 2018 Income Our Top 10 Money-Making Videos 2017 Quarter 4 Income  2017 Full Year Income

On this exclusive interview on Daddy Blogger TV, the founder of Full Name Change, Mike McCarthy, shares some of the steps involved with changing your name. Mike shares his back story as an entrepreneur and business owner. It was great to hear about some of Mike’s business failures and successes as entrepreneurship definitely has plenty of peaks and valleys. We also talk about his favourite Travel Destinations around the world (we ask all of our Podcast Guests about Travel and Business)! I was actually in Copan, Honduras during this interview so I am grateful the wifi held up for the entire interview! We cover a lot of ground in this content-rich and highly practical interview including the 3 times you may have to change your name (Marriage, Divorce, Court Order), changing your different IDs and documentation (Passport, Driver’s License, Social Insurance Card, Work ID, Banking Details, Mailing Addresses, Email Addresses, Social Media Profiles), differences between countries and between states, circumstances surrounding Destination Weddings, requirements for Business Name Changes, how to get a Full Name Change Certification, and much more. In our case, my amazing wife Anne changed her last name from “Davis” to “Shetty” after we got married but even now, she has a few of her documents and email addresses with her Maiden Name. It’s definitely a long and lengthy process and it can get confusing and overwhelming if you don’t do your research and due diligence. Full Name Change has some awesome blog posts and resources to support people going through the process. If you are about to get married or know someone who is going through a divorce and has to go through the process of changing your name, make sure you share this blog post with them! It will help them answer some of the FAQ involved with changing your name. You can also get a Full Name Change Digital Gift Card as a Birthday or Engagement or Wedding Gift too! What a unique, creative, and practical idea for a present! Check out the informative interview here: We have an awesome offer for all of our Daddy Blogger readers, followers, and supporters!

3 Success Strategies for Dads in 2018 Written by guest blogger Joel Gardner It is a new year – a time to create positive changes. In this blog post, I share how to improve your own success as a father (or mother). With my incredible wife, I have used these strategies to help our family grow, to perform as a professional, and even write a book on how to get the most important things done in life. 3 Success Strategies Here are three key strategies you can use to be a great dad. 1) Choose Your Focus A great dad focuses on his family. This means working to support that family, and providing opportunities to work, teach, and play with your children each day. Now, dads, this does not mean that you have to stop all other activities – Skyrim, civil war reenacting, karate, or volunteer work all have their place. It simply means that to be a great dad, you must give your family first priority. Choose to focus on your family, and you have made the right choice. 2) Eliminate Distractions A great dad eliminates distracting people, media, and clutter from his life. This means limiting social media time, avoiding violent or salacious media, and staying away from the people and circumstances that distract you from being a great dad. I know many dads who have given away their greatness to addictions, excessive habits, and negative relationships. You do not want to join that group. Consider the following: What habits do you have in your life that limit your ability to be a great dad? What individual or group of people interferes with your fatherly greatness? All worthwhile endeavors require sacrifice. Resolve to eliminate the most distracting obstacle from your life now. 3) Optimize Yourself A great dad takes care of his own health. If you do not care for your body, mind, and spirit, you cannot be a great dad. What should you do to optimize yourself as a dad? Consider the following. Sleep. 7 to 9 hours is recommended. Nutrition. No junk food – eat whole foods. Exercise. Weightlifting, cardio, sports – whatever keeps you active. Spirituality. Read scripture, attend worship services, meditate, or pray – whatever keeps you spiritually grounded. Personal rejuvenation. Date nights, time with your friends, hobbies – be sure to do what restores and rejuvenates you. Start Now Imagine yourself as the father […]

We just completed an amazing 3 week overland journey from Mexico City to the Yucatan. On this blog post, I’ll give a summary of the top 10 places we visited in Mexico. We also had the opportunity to spend Christmas and New Years in the Yucatan (our second year in a row spending winter in a Tropical Country….last year, we were in the Philippines). It’s also our 6th year in a row being away from Vancouver for the Winter Holidays (Whistler, Abbotsford, Salt Spring Island, Tofino, Philippines, Mexico). It’s become an annual tradition to get away from the cold of our home city of Vancouver in search of the sun! We loved Mexico overall but found the Yucatan area to be much too touristy. We preferred the overland journey from Mexico City to Oaxaca to San Cristobal de Las Casas to Palenque to Campeche to Merida. Once we hit Cancun, there were thousands of tourists, prices were much higher, everyone was speaking English, and the locals were trying to rip us off because they are so used to rich tourists. As you know from this blog, we are passionate immersive travellers and tend to avoid mass tourism destinations. Looking forward to exploring the rest of Central America after we are done with Mexico. So, here’s our Top 10 Destinations in chronological order based on date of visit: 1) MEXICO CITY  We spent 1 week in Mexico City at an Airbnb that was only 10 mins walk from the historical centre. We filled ourselves up with tacos almost every day (how can you not with 5 Tacos for 15 Pesos/$1 USD) as well as Quesadillas, Gorditas, Enchiladas, Tortas, Sopas, and more! The kids loved going to a local Wrestling Match (called “Lucha Libre” – “Free Fighting”). They even got matching Yellow and Pink Masks for the Main Fight of the Night (Caristico vs Mistico). We also did a day trip to the Aztec Ruins at Teotihuacan visiting the Pyramid of the Sun (the 3rd biggest pyramid in the world). We even got to see “The Last Jedi” on Opening Night in Mexico City! 2) OAXACA  Our first destination outside of Mexico City brought us to Oaxaca City (about 7 hours by bus). We absolutely loved Oaxaca as it’s rich in culture and history. We even got to experience a local Parade from the main church to the town square with families, […]

Argentina is definitely alluring. Just the thought of it makes you want to come and visit! Argentina has been on our MUST-VISIT LIST for years so we were super grateful to be able to visit Argentina not only once but twice during our #DaddyBloggeWorldTour of South America. Our first visit was to Iguazu Falls when we crossed over from Brazil and our second visit was when we crossed over from Chile visiting Mendoza, Cordoba, Buenos Aires, and Tigre before heading to Uruguay (our final country and destination in South America). Here’s our reflections of Argentina: 1) IGUAZU FALLS Iguazu Falls has been one of the most amazing attractions in our entire travels. Even though I have now been to 70+ countries on 6 continents, I’m still astonished when I stand in front of places like Iguazu. It’s really the incredible work of God: His Masterpiece for all the world to look at with awe and wonder. We did a Day Trip from Brazil to see both the Argentinian and the Brazilian sides of Iguazu and we did Boat Trips on both sides too. Definitely the Argentinian side is more impressive as it has 80% of the Falls. If you just do the Brazilian side you will have only seen 20% of the Falls so I highly recommend checking out both sides to really grasp how big Iguazu is. 2) MENDOZA We crossed over from Valparaiso to Mendoza on a Night Bus which was quite difficult as we had to do Border Crossings & Customs in the middle of the night. Definitely won’t be doing that again as it’s quite tough with young kids. We will be doing all of our overland border crossings during the day from now on. Mendoza is a beautiful city with a massive park to explore, a nice historical downtown area, and of course lots of surrounding wineries as Mendoza is home to some of the most famous Argentinian Wines! 3) CORDOBA We stayed only a block away from the bus station as we only had one night to spend in Cordoba before heading to Buenos Aires. However, we spent 3-4 hours exploring the historical parts of Cordoba which is a very lively and energetic college city. In fact, we met several University Students who spoke perfect English. One of the them was an enormous help as we could not find our Booking.com Hotel as we […]

This is a guest post by Tim Chan, a cheerful pessimist who is always thinking. He is the principal and marketing strategist at Coracle Marketing. Tim and his wife, Olive, blog together at www.timandolive.com and live with their 2 daughters near Vancouver, Canada. Tim is excited to be part of the team launching the Veego Stand, a light, portable, attachable laptop stand, available on Kickstarter now. — Travelling has many rewards, but it comes with its unique set of challenges. I’ve had the privilege to travel to France, Spain, Morocco, Israel, India, Thailand, Singapore, China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Japan, Panama, Mexico, and across North America. And as my very travel-seasoned friend Ricky Shetty of Daddy Blogger will tell you, travelling well is a skill that is developed with practice. When it comes to travelling, I’m grateful for designers and inventors among us who create new products to help us out. Kickstarter is a great place to find innovative ideas and helpful gadgets that make travelling easier. If you travel frequently or are often on-the-go, you’ll want to check out these new products currently available on Kickstarter: PAXTER | Smart Travel / Gym Container For Hygiene Products When I travel, I like to bring my own shampoo, soap, and conditioner, because you never know what’s available where you’re staying (especially if you’ll be staying in multiple locations). But it’s a hassle having multiple bottles to carry around. The PAXTER is a compact way to transport your personal hygiene needs. It includes three refillable compartments for liquids, ideal for products such as soap, shampoo, and conditioner, as well as one waterproof compartment and one special toothbrush compartment. Instead of having to carry around multiple bottles and bags, the PAXTER makes it easy to take everything you need when you travel. MYMUG | The Last Mug You’ll Ever Need. 100 Year  Guarantee! I always bring a travel mug with me, because sometimes it’s hard to find a place to get a drink. When travelling I need a travel mug that’s spill proof, doesn’t break, and keeps my hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. And it would be nice if it’s microwaveable and dishwasher safe. MYMUG is all these things. MYMUG is a sleek looking travel mug that feels like ceramic but is made with a composite material that is virtually unbreakable. They’re so confident in the design and material that it’s guaranteed for a century! […]

Argentina is alluring, Bolivia is beautiful, and Chile is charming! We had the chance to spend 3 weeks in Chile visiting San Pedro de Atacama, Santiago, and Valparaiso traveling overland from Bolivia into Chile and then into Argentina. Chile is a loooong country so it takes a loooong time to get from North to South so plan for really loooong bus rides or be prepared for some flights. We love travelling fully overland as much as possible but we had to bear with some night buses to get to our destinations. I managed to get a lot of work done for our upcoming Digital Nomad Mastery – Virtual Summit on the bus rides plus got to listen to some inspiring podcasts! 1) SAN PEDRO DE ATACAMA  San Pedro de Atacama was a beautiful town although quite expensive (especially when you come from dirt-cheap Bolivia)…it’s quite touristy so you have to get away from the 5 blocks of tourist-craziness to appreciate the town. We did the free walking tour from the Main Square. The stars are spectacular at night and a lot of the tour companies offer Astronomy Tours in the evening as well as Desert Tours to the surrounding Hot Springs and Steaming Geysers. Chile also has a weird 3 prong electric outlets so be prepared to buy an adaptor when you arrive (even our international multi-plug did not have the 3 prongs). From San Pedro, it was a long 23 hour bus ride into Santiago 2) SANTIAGO What an amazing city! We stayed at a beautiful Airbnb right in the centre of the city. It was only 2 blocks walk from Plaza de Armes (the main city square in Santiago) and had an amazing view of Santiago…plus some spectacular sunsets! Santiago has some talented Street Performers and Buskers (we especially loved the Drummers)! Check out all the videos below of the Santiago Street Performers! Santiago also has the tallest building in all of South America as well as some cool Cable Cars and Funiculars. Plus, we got to celebrate Halloween (Rianne as Minnie and Ryan as Iron Man) and Ryan’s 4th Birthday in Santiago (at Happy Land). Great memories of one of the most dynamic cities in South America! 3) VALPARAISO Valparaiso was a gorgeous city aesthetically with 40 plus hills. They call it the cultural capital of Chile. To get around you can ride one of the 15+ funiculars. To really appreciate the city, […]
