What I've Been Up To?

Payatas, Philippines

What's up guys! =) 

I know that I haven't been blogging as much as usual, but I assure you that I am still here! =) I am currently in the Philippines working on some video projects, and I will most likely be in Asia for a total of 4-5 months.

So what am I doing here for that long you ask?

Well, I pretty much travel all year long filming obstacle course race events and at the end of the year, I really try to focus more on filming cause- related projects such as mission trips, charities and even adventure tours focused on getting people active. The donations that I have received from my OCRTUBE media pursuits go 100% straight into these great causes, and it just makes what I do much more meaningful =).

 So far the toughest challenge for me has been getting on a consistent workout plan because lately I've just been on the go all the time, I mean all the time. Most days I find myself just going out for a run and doing push ups and burpees along the way. When I finally slow down, I love to use my Beachbody on Demand app and really get in a good workout. Sometimes I will try to find a nearby gym or outdoor park to workout in, but it's just been too crazy, I would much rather workout at my hotel or airbnb.

How to Find Your Vehicle to Success

Become an Entrepreneur, Find Your Vehicle to Success, Become a Beachbody Coach, Beachbody Coach Success Story, Beachbody Coach Tips, Beachbody Coach Opportunity, Network Marketing Benefits


Define SUCCESS?

For me, success is happiness, and being able to live life on my own terms. Success is not about monetary goals, it's more about knowing that the more wealth that you create, the more you can ultimately make a big impact whether it be giving back to a charity, church, your family, or even yourself.

Do you want to make an impact?

Making a difference in this world is not for everyone, but making a difference for you....well, most people would agree on that. But how do you do that right?

Through my years "on the job", I was always searching for the BEST business opportunity, the best way to make money, and even the fastest way to earn it. I learned a lot, what not to do, what works for me etc. Now, I cannot say that I am an expert, but what I can do is share with you what I've done and how it can benefit you.

Network Marketing. Yeah, let's go straight to the point. This is my sole source of income, and I believe that it is the best type of residual income out there, other than buying into a franchise which most people rarely even have the income to make a half million dollar investment to succeed.

The first time that I was introduced into the network marketing industry was through a company that developed consumable products such as soap and laundry detergent. They were a great company, and I loved the people and the camaraderie, but I just wasn't passionate about the products. Yes, the products were amazing, but not enough for me to get excited to share them with my friends.

Many years passed by, and I kept searching for other business opportunities, not necessarily network marketing businesses, but just anything that I can try my luck at. I've dabbled in online casinos, travel concierge services, nightlife marketing, eCommerce, affiliate marketing, and even day trading. But guess what I went back to? Network Marketing! Why? Because it works! And here's why:

It's all about finding a product or service that you love and use. It's not about the selling, it's about the belief. Is it something that you would share with your family and friends? If not, then it's not a product or service that is right for you. Do you believe in the company's ethics code? That's very important too! It's also about educating yourself about the Network Marketing industry itself, and how it works, what makes it legit etc. There is a reason why network marketing is a WHOPPING billion dollar industry, and why it also creates more millionaires than any other industry out there. Do you know why?

Because it's a PEOPLE BUSINESS. It's about people helping people. It's about building relationships, making friends, camaraderie, helping people because you love doing it, not because you can make money from them. That's where people fail in this industry.....they make it all about money, and that's the worst thing that you can do. People aren't stupid, they know if they are trying to be sold to, that's where most people fail, they're doing it all wrong!

The people who are successful in network marketing are true professionals who came from nothing and learned the ropes, and the one's that you see flooding your Facebook feed with annoying products and fake posts, well......those are the amateurs.

We were born to network and meet new friends

Ok, for all of you who are not "people persons", trust me, I know where you are coming from. I can be anti-social at times (well maybe a lot ha ha), but we're human, we need human interaction, I know...it sucks lol =). But what I've found in what I do with network marketing is that, you can impact lives without even talking to people. I have learned many ways to do this, but one of my best avenues for success have been from blogging, and I am not even a writer, I'm actually terrible at it, but it is the best way that I've learned how to express myself and connect with others. Do you relate? Trust me, there's something for everyone in this industry, and I'm here to help you find what works best for you!

With technology these days, you can potentially build a multi-million dollar business from your smartphone or laptop. Training systems are at your finger tips 24/7! There are so many ways to connect with people without doing the traditional old way of home meetings and using a white board....yuck! This may be great for people who love being in front of people, but I've met a lot of people like me (hates being a salesman), and it's all about finding your strength and running with it. As technology changes, so does the network marketing industry, and mind you, for the better!!!

So how can you use this as a vehicle to success? Here are my success points to using today's Network Marketing business concepts as a vehicle to your success in anything that you want to do:

-  Find a company that has products and services that you love
-  Make sure that the company has integrity and has good ratings with the Better Business Bureau
-  Start small by just learning about the industry, the long term benefits, and incorporate the business into your lifestyle
-  Don't sell, do share
-  Start a blog about anything that you love, and incorporate online banners and links from the products that you love and use from the company that you have chosen to partner with.
-  Don't change who you are (NO, NO, NO!!!), use the products and services to enhance your life and share it
-  Be consistent. If you make it part of your life on a daily basis, it will be organic with your network of friends. Don't do "sudden burst" business posts, like all of a sudden you're a business consultant yeah right, that's fake....just be upfront with people and let them know that you are testing the waters and don't be afraid to get their opinions.
-  Your job is still a priority while you are just getting started with a new business, but treat your business like a business, and it will be a business. Treat it like a hobby, and it will always be a hobby.
-  Believe in what you do, get rid of toxic people in your life. Find true supporters and surround yourself with people who want "REAL" (and I quote) real success for you.

All the above is what I've personally done with my network marketing business and it has allowed me to expand my ideas into other business projects that I am passionate about. You may not like the idea of network marketing as a financial vehicle, and that's ok, this was the vehicle that I used and love and what has taken me to the next journey in my life. If you choose network marketing, or you are on the fence about it, feel free to message me, I can help. If you decide to go another route and choose a different vehicle to help you with your success, then that's great too! It's all about respecting and supporting each other, and I'll be honest, there just aren't enough people doing this. Keep moving forward, and I hope to see you somewhere around this beautiful planet =)

Thanks to Network Marketing, I am able to travel the world and pursue my passion in filming 
obstacle course racing events, it's been a blessing!

How to Stay Awake and In Shape During Road Trips

Road Trip Workout, Stay Awake and In Shape During Road Trips, Road Trip Exercises, Beachbody Coach Travel, Beachbody on Demand


I'm going to make this post really quick, but I am almost finished with my 2+ month road trip from the east coast of the USA to the west coast, to the Blue Mountains in Canada and back to Florida. When I'm done, I will have driven over 13,000+ road miles!

One of the things that I've found that most people struggle with during long road trips of one week or more is how to stay awake and active on the road, and so I just wanted to share what I did during my 2+ month road trip.

1.  When you stop at a rest area to take a potty break, try parking at one of the parking spaces furthest away from the restrooms. From your car, jog or even lunge all the way to the restrooms, do your business, and jog or lunge back to your car. Once you get back to your car, do 15-30 burpees, or 50 jumping jacks. Stretch if you have time.

2.  When you stop at a gas station to pump gas, this can be the "burn out round". When you are filling up, choose an exercise and do it for as many reps as you can until your gas tank is filled up. Ideal exercises would be: push ups, squats, jump squats, pulsing squats, pulsing lunges, plank holds etc. (choose one) Try going for as many reps as you can, or even holding a plank for the whole duration, which isn't that long at all, but it's all about staying active on the road =) *Please note that you may have some people looking at you like you are weird, but guess what, you will probably never, ever see them again. But also, you never know, you may inspire someone to get back into shape too =)

3. When you stop by a gas station for a potty break. Go ahead and do your business, find a parking spot and do a Inch Worms around your car. If you have time to do extras, grab a backpack and do some squat thrusts, or open up your car door, stick your feet up on one seats and do decline push ups to failure, that will wake you up!! =)

So this is just some of the things that I did that didn't take a very long time, but it kept me awake and of course kept me active. You can always do more, but the key is to get to your next destination, so these small things can help you get there safely while keeping the blood flowing! =)

Sometimes I enjoy taking my time and I will even do full workouts at a rest area. I especially enjoy getting on my smartphone, finding a good spot around a picnic area and logging on to my Beachbody on Demand fitness app and doing a quick T25 or Insanity Max 30 Workout, I'm always wide awake after a full workout.

Over $6,000 worth of online streaming workouts anytime, anywhere!

I challenge you to film yourself doing these road trip workouts, and tag me on Facebook. =)

My Top 7 Single Guy Tips for Staying Happy

Single Guy Tips, Single Life Tips, Single Men Tips, Being Single and Happy, Happy Tips for Single Guys


Just for the record, I am not an expert on this topic, I merely would like to give you tips that have worked for me, as well as for some of my friends who are living the single life by choice. What I mean "by choice", this simply means not relying on another person to make me or my single friends happy, and truly understanding that in order to be happy, again in my opinion...one must learn how to create happiness within themselves first.

SO LET'S DIG IN SHALL WE!

1.  Read Books - Now I know that this may seem unusual for some of you, and trust me when I say this, I was not the type of person that enjoyed reading as a child, but from my experience, this is something that always kept me busy, meaning it kept my mind occupied and at the same time, I was able to gain knowledge that help me towards my future projects and social skills. I do recommend only reading books that interest you, and believe me, you will know which books are for you or not. Start with 10 minutes or 10 pages a day, and then eventually one book a month =)

2.  Exercise - You're like, "I know this already", and I bet you do, but most people don't do what they already know which is why most single men are not happy. We all know what we have to do, but are we doing these things? From the beginning, I was always a self-motivated person, especially if I have a goal set, but if you are the type of guy that needs constant motivation, or you easily get bored, I would encourage you to find a workout partner, or join a gym. Unlike me, some people need that social environment to workout, and that's okay, just as long as you are working out and being active. There are a lot of free group fitness classes from Crossfit, to P90X, to Dance and even obstacle race training if that's what you're into. Just like reading, exercise will keep your mind occupied and also get you in shape and looking good just in case you end up finding your soul mate.

3.  Find a Hobby - I know that sometimes we get all wrapped up into work and business that we forget about the things that we really love doing. Finding a hobby and doing this every week is something that always helped me get my mind off of the fact that I was single =). As long as your hobby isn't taking over your life or your business, and affecting your work life, then I highly recommend being consistent with it. Sometimes we get bored too, I know, so this is when it might be a good idea to bring  some friends into the mix, or find online groups or meet ups to mingle with others who have the same interests as you.


4.  Socialize - Now I wouldn't get too crazy with this one! I think the last thing that any single guy who is trying to be happy should be doing is bar hopping and "pretending" they are happy. Social drinks are always ok in my book, but once you get to the point where you feel that alcohol and drugs is the only way to make you feel happy, you will end up making it worse, and trust me......you will never achieve your goal of happiness as a single guy by going that route. I enjoy occasional drinks especially when I am traveling to different countries, and celebrating success of any kind with some adult beverages is awesome, but once it gets addictive, it will be much more difficult to become truly happy. If you think that you are not fun without alcohol, then maybe you need to find some new friends, just saying =)

5.  Eat Healthier - I found that the more crap that I put into my body, the more I felt like crap. Once I began to eat healthier along with daily exercise, something magical happened, I just organically started feeling better and really appreciating things a lot more. Of course if you are not used to eating healthy, it may take some time to adjust and learn, just like any change of lifestyle, it will be tough, but ask yourself this question, "how important is it for you to be happy?" Eating healthy helped me learn to be more creative, and what I mean by this, I had to learn how to budget more, and learn how to make certain ingredients taste good. Once my body adjusted, it was like a whole new world. There are a ton of clean eating and fitness groups to join to help you get started, that's what I did. I know that there are a lot of diet plans and nutrition information out there to easily get you overwhelmed, I recommend starting off by cutting down on your fat and sugar intake, and just take it from there.


6.  Travel - I cannot begin to tell you what independent solo travel has done for me! I think I have learned 100X more by traveling over all of my years in public and financial education institutions. I learned so much about who I am, my talents, and what I am capable of just by traveling and exploring on my own. So many people think that solo travel is scary and boring, but let me tell you from my experience that the people that you meet will be some of your closest friends. I have met so many people from different parts of the world that I can literally call this planet my home. Now I know that solo travel is not for everyone, but how will you know if you don't give it a try?

7.  Start a Business on the Side - I know what you're thinking, "I don't have the money to start a business!!!", well I'm here to tell you that you're wrong. 7 years ago, I started my business with only a $40 investment, and at the time, I only had maybe less than $50 in my bank account. Starting a business can be scary, but it can also be a fun way for you to turn your hobby into a paycheck. Creating an extra income on the side is a lot easier than most people think because get this,  you are in total control of the time that you spend building it. I remember working 3 jobs and starting my online business, I would go on my bathroom breaks and do email follow ups. If I only had 10 minutes to work my business, I simply took full advantage of those 10 minutes. For me, being happy has to do a lot about living life on my own terms. Some people can work a job for 40+ years, I just wasn't that type of person. If you're reading this, just know that you can do more than you think, and starting a small business is VERY possible, you just have to stretch your mind just a bit more. As with all of the above, starting a business will keep your mind sharp and active, and you never know, you may find that special someone.

------------------------------------------------------------------

So I hope that some of my tips will help some of you. And technically, I guess these tips could also work for some females, so feel free to soak it in girls =). And again, although I am not an expert by any means, and I am still single as I am writing this post, I will have you know that I am super happy and living my life! Yes, I do have my bad days, but the key is to try to stay consistent with the things that I mentioned above, along with surrounding yourself with positive and uplifting people.

There is nothing wrong with the single life. Whether you are single or taken, we are all still human, and it is up to us to create happiness, no one will do this for us, NOT EVEN A SOUL MATE. So go out and live your life!

Hiking Camelback Mountain - Phoenix, Arizona

Hiking Camelback Mountain, Echo Canyon Trail, Cholla Trail Camelback, Hiking Phoenix Arizona
Watch Video Below

So Camelback Mountain in Phoenix AZ was such an amazing hike. I met up with some friends who live in the Tempe area and they were pretty much my mountain tour guides for the day =)

The one thing about Camelback is that even though it is considered a very difficult double black diamond trail, there is a lot of foot traffic, especially on the weekends. If you don't like a lot of crowds, it might be best to hike it during the week.

The route that we took was going up the Echo Canyon Trail to the top, and down the Cholla Trail. And for some reason we still had enough energy to do it again, so we went up Cholla then back down the Echo Canyon Trail which totaled about 5.5 miles. Most people go up the Echo Canyon Trail and back down.

(Free 14 Day Trial of Beachbody on Demand)

I highly recommend that you try to get there as early as you can because the parking at the trail head is very limited. I had to actually circle the neighborhood for about 10 minutes before a parking spot was available. Here is the address to the Echo Canyon Trailhead:

Aspiring Entrepreneurs Wanted

Aspiring Entrepreneurs Wanted, Become an Entrepreneur, Entrepreneur Tips, Start an Online Business Today, Digital Nomad Opportunity, Entrepreneur Opportunity


Before I get into this post, I just wanted to share this one point. As an Entrepreneur, I firmly believe that anyone who is thinking about being in business for themselves must be open-minded. Forget about what you know now, and start new. What you've always known in the past has changed, and will continue to evolve, the question is....will you?

ASPIRING

What does this mean? It's about having ambitions to achieve something great!

I am looking for people who aspire to do great things. With that, it will take courage, determination, commitment, persistence, and making goals non-negotiable. If you are someone like that, then please continue to read, if not, go back to your life, this is not for you.

ENTREPRENUER

What do you think about when you think of the word "entrepreneur?" According to the dictionary, an entrepreneur is a person who organizes and operates a business or businesses, taking on a greater than normal financial risk in order to do so.

So secondly, since you've made it this far, the next question is, are you willing to take risks? Are you willing to make a financial and time investment to create an empire? If you are not willing to invest any money (we're not talking about thousands or millions here, so relax guys) or time into creating something that will leave a legacy for you, then I encourage you to discontinue reading. From here on out, I will be talking only to the serious people.

WANTED

And what I mean by this, I mean I will consider people based on their goals. As an entrepreneur, you have to be selective on who you partner or do business with. You must be selective in who you mentor, and share your ideas and secrets of success with. Am I successful? Depends on what you call success.

I don't have a job, haven't had one in almost 5 years. I travel around the world on my own terms and can spend time with my family any time that I want. My decisions are based on what I want, and not based on an employer. I have total control over my life, so does that make me successful? I guess so.

What does success mean to you?

If you are money-driven, you probably won't last long because what I will share with you is based on passion, what you truly want to do, and how you can turn that into a paycheck. Paychecks that you can only get by helping people. So if at this point you are not willing to help people on your path to success, then please discontinue reading, becoming an entrepreneur is definitely not for you.

Helping people regardless if you benefit or not is a SUCCESS trait, do you have it?
Aspiring Entrepreneurs Wanted, Become an Entrepreneur, Entrepreneur Tips, Start an Online Business Today, Digital Nomad Opportunity, Entrepreneur Opportunity


CONGRATULATIONS

Now that you aspire to be great, let's talk.

First of all, what I would like to do is introduce you to a financial vehicle that you can use to lead you on your path to success. This is the same vehicle that I started using about 7 years ago, and I still continue to use this today. With this opportunity, it will help you become more happy, healthy, and will teach you the basic steps to become a leader and entrepreneur. I am talking about an affiliation with a company where they will literally spend over $120 million on advertising dollars per year on your behalf, just to make your life easier.

It starts with learning the basics of networking, social media, the benefits of staying active, eating clean, and not caring about what people think. So if you can't handle the fact that not everyone will understand what you are doing, and that your friends might frown upon what you are doing, or the fact that your family might not even support you, then you might as well quit now.

Remember, you have gone this far, there are more obstacles to endure as an entrepreneur. Here's the bright side to this opportunity: if you work hard for 2-5 years, you won't have to work hard for the rest of your life. Now of course this is based on what you are willing to put in, and numbers are always different for many people, but in a nutshell, you have the opportunity to create an empire from the convenience of your own smartphone or laptop, with virtually no employees at all. I will never promise you success (that's your responsibility), I can only give you the very same tools that I have used, and help you on your journey, that I can promise you!

ARE YOU DOWN?

Again, I want to be honest with you. Becoming an entrepreneur is tough. If you are willing to take some hits from life, your friends, and even your family, then I would like to welcome you to a new world of opportunity. Most people will never see past their current lifestyle right now, it's only because they do no want to. So if you have read this far, then we should talk, because you are a rare breed.

YOUR NEXT STEP

Now this part is crucial, because a lot of people get to this point even though they were not qualified too, are you one of them? If you were just curious, but not really serious, please stop reading now, you are wasting your time.

But if you have read this far, and you think that you have what it takes to really make big things happen in your life, then your next step is to message me directly. And keep in mind, I am a very busy person. I'm not even sure where I will be when I respond back to you, so please do not waste my time, and I promise that I will not waste your time as well.

THE TIME IS NOW

So let's summarize everything.

You aspire to become in business for yourself. You understand that becoming an entrepreneur takes an investment of some of your hard earned cash, and of course your time. You understand the importance of being active and eating healthy, if not, you are willing to start. You understand that in order to become an entrepreneur, you have to be willing to help people. You understand that having an open-mind and not caring what others think is very crucial to your success. You understand that this is not an illegal business and it will take anywhere from 2-5 years to become successful depending on what your goals are. And lastly, you understand that I will respect your time just like I would encourage you to respect my time.

LET'S DO IT

I look forward to meeting you. Please email me here, and I will get back with you asap to set up a personal one on one free video call with you. I'm excited for you =)

WHY PEOPLE GIVE UP

Why People Give Up, Never Give Up, Never Give Up Tips, Top Ways Not To Give Up, Beachbody Coach Success, Beachbody Business Transformation, Filipino Beachbody Coach
You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with


If there is ONE THING that I know, it's that most of us humans would like to be more happy, healthy and successful in whatever we decide to do.

It really brings us back to our childhood when we were all so innocent. We didn't know anything about hardships, paying bills, relationships, negativity, jealousy etc. All we wanted to do was explore! If we wanted to do something, we would do it. As kids, we were very persistent. We didn't stop until we were able to walk, run, and cry until we ultimately got what we wanted. I remember as a child how much I loved Cocoa Puffs Cereal. My mom knew this, and she would hide the cereal and strategically slide it on the highest shelf in the kitchen, but I always found a way to get to it. It didn't matter if it was on top of the Empire State Building, I was going to get it!! I know all of you have a similar story on how you acheived some of the most impossible feats as a child. We just had NO FEAR!

AND THEN WE GREW UP

Or at least some of us did =). Growing up was tough! Our parents started trying to tell is what to do even though we already knew everything!! =) We couldn't get what we wanted anymore because our parents didn't have enough money, we had to start doing chores around the house, and school....we had to start a learning structure, people started trying to control us.

As we matured, we learned more about being hurt, relationships, jealousy amongst people we thought we were friends with. People started to lie to us, take advantage of us, make fun of us, and it just wasn't the world that we expected it to be. We started to grow up and learn about what life was really all about.

AND IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT SUNSHINE AND RAINBOWS

We learned about who our real and/or fake friends were. Sometimes the support from our family just became non-existent, or was never there to begin with. Our boss at work showed favoritism towards another employee, or your supervisor became an A-hole just because you were making more money then he or she was. Some of us unfortunately had to take on multiple jobs just to make ends meet, and even then, we couldn't pay our bills. For most of us, vacation time was just not part of the equation anymore. Happiness and relaxation just vanished like a fart in the wind!!

LIFE JUST BECAME TOUGH, so we just shut down and started to GIVE UP!

Some of us started setting goals based on the income that was currently coming in. We couldn't see passed our current situation, and for a lot of us, the question was, "why should we?"

You see, I'm no expert on this topic, but I'm sure that most of you would agree that LIFE just got in the way of everything. People just began to get bombarded with stress, and distractions from other people or things that really didn't matter. People stopped believing in themselves, and started listening to the negativity that was going on in their lives. It just became a world of SUCK!

The bottom line is that people quit because TIMES GOT TOUGH.

People quit because they listen to what others say, and not what's in their heart. People started to care about what others (people who had no bearing on your success) think, and not focus on who's putting the food on the table. People quit because they lack the income they deserve. People quit because they haven't found anything worth fighting for. And sometimes people quit because their decisions lead them to a life of drugs and alcohol.

I was a borderline alcoholic before starting my fitness journey back in 2010

I don't want to be the A-hole and be the one to say that GIVING UP is not going to make things better, so I'll just let you to ask yourself that question. Is it?

I have given up plenty of times in my life, so I am far from being perfect myself. But there comes a moment when enough is enough. When are you going to start LIVING YOUR LIFE? It took me many years to get out of a financial and mental rut. I know that many of you reading this right now may be going through a really tough time in your life right now, I understand. I've been there, and I still fight my daily battles. All I can say is that what you're going through doesn't have to be that way. It took a lot for me to come out of my hole and see the sunshine, but I somehow made it, and if you let me, I would like to share with you some of the things that helped me get through the tough times, and how that lead me to stop giving up on me.

Find someone or something that you will NEVER give up on!

My daughter is the most important person and the best thing that ever happened to me


This is how I learned HOW TO NOT GIVE UP:

- I started to workout and eat healthier on a budget because I had no money
- I started to surround myself with positive people who had vision and supported my goals
- I found my WHY. Someone or something that I would never give up on. She, my daughter was always more important than my struggles, and I made sure that she was in front of me every single day. When I wanted to quit, I would take my wallet out and look at a photo of my daughter as a reminder why I would never quit on her.
- I found an accountability partner that no matter what, would never let me quit. If I was upset, or didn't want to workout, my partner would simply kick my ass back in gear, we all need that.
- I wrote down my goals, and shared it with people. I even made a cheesy vision board which I was never a believer, until I saw it actually working and started checking things off my bucket list!
- I learned about time management. Time with family, time with business, time with myself, and time with God.
- I learned that travel was my escape. Find your passion that will help you become more creative in helping you reach your goals, not a passion that will distract you.

In my opinion, World Travel is the BEST investment in eduation

Preparing for my Overlanding Trip

Preparing for my Overlanding Trip, Minimalist Beachbody Coach, Off Road Camping Beachbody Coach, Beachbody coach Success, Full time Beachbody Coach, Overlander, Overlanding
But first.....spend time with my Princess!

It's so funny that I just now heard of the term "overlanding", which is word used to describe off-road camping. I've been doing this for years now, and are you telling me that it's cool now?? =) I thought it was pretty cool before! =)

I was introduced to this concept of "roughing it" when I started to travel a lot on the road to film various obstacle course racing events in North America. I was looking for the most economical way to travel without spending a lot of my hard earned cash on fancy hotels. I was at a race one weekend, and someone asked me where I was staying, and I told him that I'm not sure yet, I haven't booked anything, and he said why book when you have an SUV like what you have here?

I was like, sleep in my truck? Are you crazy!!! 

The funny thing is that I couldn't find any accommodations that was within my budget, and that was near the event site, so I ended up sleeping in my truck that night.

I woke up and said, wow, that wasn't that bad, and I saved some money, now I can eat a steak ha ha!! From that point forward, I ended up getting more creative and learning about really using the resources that I had to save me the most money to take me to the next destination. I bought camping supplies, a cooler, some workout equipment, and I officially became an OVERLANDER! A minimalist now for almost 3 years, this way of travel was just right up my alley, and I loved it.

OVER TWO YEARS LATER

I'm still traveling the roads as a nomad, saving money, and enjoying the outdoors. My overland vehicle (which is a lender vehicle mind you) is not all decked out with a TEMPUI tent on the roof, but I am keeping things simple. I occasionally book rooms at budget hotels, hostels and Airbnb's when I need to get some work done with some fast internet, but you will mostly find me at camp sites.

The fact that I love working out with nature as well, just makes this lifestyle perfect for me. Thanks to my Beachbody on Demand Digital library, my gym comes with me everywhere!!


THE NEXT THREE MONTHS

I will be on the road starting from Florida (tomorrow), and heading to the west coast as far as California, and then up to Canada, and then back to Florida before heading to Asia mid-November. The plan is to visit various state and national parks during the week, and then work on film projects on the weekend. I will also be working my online coaching business because heck, without that, I would not be able to travel all the time =). Besides, being able to help people while I am going through my own life journey is priceless! I still can't believe that I help people get fit for a living by using my smartphone, it's so surreal!

Anyways, my trip begins tomorrow morning after I spend some quality time with my daughter today! She is still in class as I am writing this post =) I will also be stopping by north west Florida to see my parents for a day, but after that, the adventure begins, so excited!! =)

So if you see me on the road, camp site, working out, race event etc., feel free to hop on and hop off with me. Life is not so much about the places that you visit, but the people that you meet along the way.

How to Help Houston, 5 Days of Hard Labor Online Test Group, American Red Cross Disaster Relief and Beachbody, Workout and Give Back, Beachbody on Demand Free Trial


So I just came back from a trip in South America and I heard about all of the things that were going on with Houston Texas. I was like WHOA, how can I help, and is it safe for me to go to Texas for my next film project in Mountain Home, TX?

I don't watch the news too often, because heck I don't even own a TV, so when the news hits social media, you know it's big! The amazing thing is that once there is a natural disaster, the options for helping is in the hundreds. SO HOW DO YOU GIVE BACK RIGHT?

And it doesn't matter what you do, everything counts! Whether you are making a trip to help out hands on, donating food and/or supplies to your favorite charity, or giving through monetary ways, it's whatever you can do to help.

How cool is that!!! In fact, up to $100,000 will be donated. One of the coolest things about what I do, there are always wonderful ways to giving back to the community =)

Hiking Up Machu Picchu on a Budget

Hiking Up Machu Picchu, Machu Picchu on a Budget, Train for Machu Picchu, Machu Picchu on the cheap, Cheap Machu Picchu, Buy Machu Picchu Tickets
Watch my video below!

So there are a lot of ways to visit the Sacred Valley, and although I feel that the best way to experience Machu Picchu is by partaking in one of the 1-11 day treks, there are far easier ways for the non-hikers. If you are the adventurous kind like myself, there are about 6 off the beaten treks to take, anywhere from the Inca Trail (1-4 days), to the Salcantay Route - 5 to 8 days (Mount Salcantay reaches up to 20,500 feet high), to even the Lodge Trek where you rough it during the day, and sleep in lodges at night (7 to 11 days). I didn't have that much time unfortunately, but I just wanted share with you my little journey on how I visited the Sacred Valley, and how I did it on a budget. If you're rich with FAT POCKETS, then that's great, take me with you because I would love to go back! One day I plan go back and do the Salcantay Route!

I arrived in Lima, Peru via bus from Guayaquil, Ecuador. Of course you can fly, but like I said before, I do things on a budget so that I can travel 7+ months out of the year. You can of course fly straight into Lima which I will do next time, but I actually had a film project in Ecuador, so that is why I was there. Ecuador was amazing btw, if you ever go there, you must visit Banos!

From Lima, you can either fly or take a bus to Cusco, which was once the capital of the Inca Empire, and now the main hub to Machu Picchu. I took the bus and it ran me only about $28 USD, which I booked via a website called Busbud.com. It took 21 hours, so if you don't have much time, you may want to fly. You will find various bus companies, but I chose CIVA because it was much cheaper, but still had good reviews, and it ended up beating my expectations. CIVA also has different categories of buses such as ECONO, SUPER, and if you have a little bit of extra money to spend, EXCLUCIVA is where it's at! Just FYI, the buses in Peru are known to sometimes be better than a lot of the airlines! I mean, the buses will feed you up to 3-4 meals depending on the distance. You'll be lucky to get pretzels from an airline these days! I don't mind taking the buses because you are able to see more of the country, and I really enjoy seeing different parts of the places I visit. With flying, you miss out on a lot of amazing scenery.

Cusco ended up being a lot bigger than I expected, which I really didn't like. I gravitate towards the smaller towns and villages. Although I didn't care for Cusco as much, there is still plenty to do, and activities to book prior to visiting Machu Picchu. One thing that I wasn't able to do, but wished I did was visit Rainbow Mountain. It's about 2-3 hours outside of Cusco, but definitely worth the trip if you have the time. Just to warn you, the trek is about 6 days if you want to do it the right way, and get this, some people say the level of difficulty is MUCH higher than trekking up Machu Picchu! There are also one day treks to Rainbow Mountain, but I only recommend that if you have limited time.

GETTING BACK ON TRACK

From Cusco, the goal is to get to Aguas Calientes, which is the main town at the bottom of Machu Picchu. Yes, it is that tough to reach Machu Picchu, that's why it's one of those places that you have to visit. There is NO DIRECT way to visit the Sacred Valley, it's a journey, and one that you can customize yourself.

I recommend buying your Machu Picchu Tickets at least a week in advanced!

Okay, so prior to Cusco, I originally purchased a train ticket to get me from Cusco to Aguas Calientes, but come to find out, the train station that I booked with (Inca Rail) was about 2 hours away in a place called Ollantaytambo. I think there is a rail company in Cusco (Peru Rail) that goes from Cusco to Ollantaytambo, but not sure, if there is one, it is definitely going to be pricey, because the train option is not cheap, unless of course you're rich =).

Ollantaytambo is where most of the 4 day treks start from. The best way to get to Ollantaytambo if you are on a budget is to take one of the combi buses (local passenger mini vans) from Cusco. Yes, you can take a taxi, but you will get ripped off. Even if you find a good deal with a taxi ($20-40), it WILL NOT beat the price of only 10 soles ($3 USD) if you take the local mini van. Again, the ride from Cusco to Ollantaytambo is about 2 hours. There is also a bus that can take you from Cusco to a stop called "Hydroelectrica" just a bit before Aguas Calientes for about $30+ R/T (you can probably find cheaper rate at $20 I heard), but you still have to trek about 2 hours to get to Aguas Calientes, the trek isn't that difficult, mostly flat dirt and gravel road.

To get to the combi mini buses in Cusco, they are located at the corner of Ave Grau and Calle Pavitos. There is no specific time they leave, they try to fill up the buses to make more bang for the buck. The mini buses leave as early as 2:30 am daily, no reservations needed, just show up with your 10 soles!

From Ollantaytambo, I took the Inca Rail to Aguas Calientes, and this was the most expensive part of my journey, it was about $116 R/T, and that was the cheapest (Executive Ticket). Inca Rail does provide a complimentary beverage, snack, and a piece of chocolate for the 55 minute or so journey. If you chose a different ticket such as the Presidential, I think you get a fancy meal, and some cocktails.

Ollantaytambo is a really cool place, I would stay here over Cusco, they even have their own National Park (costs 70 soles, about $20 USD) and various hikes.

The Inca Rail dropped me off right in the middle of Aguas Calientes, where it was only a 5 minute walk to my guesthouse that I stayed at which set me back only $17 per night (Don Andre). Yes, there are some fancier places to stay, but my ass isn't going to be in the hotel, my plan was to explore, not to admire my bed linens.

Have a better Machu Picchu Experience, get in shape before hiking up!

Now if you read this far, you saw that I recommended that you purchase your Machu Tickets at least one week in advanced right, well I didn't ha ha. I actually purchased mine the day before. Here's the reason why. The main website (see above) that you purchase the tickets from is really crappy, and what I mean by that, it is very difficult to navigate, and if you are not spanish, the website does not work very well in english. I even tried to book my ticket in spanish format, but it still didn't work. Come to find out, it was my Visa Card. They only take certain visa cards, and mine happened to be the wrong one =) At that point, I tried booking with a ticket agency just to get it over, but even they were horrible to deal with, and charged outrageous booking fees, up to $20 more than what the original tickets cost. So what did I do? As soon as I arrived to Aguas Clientes, I went straight to the offices of the Regional Directorate of Culture, and I bought my ticket directly from them, with no fees! Just FYI, they only take cash, so make sure that you have some SOLES, or get some at an ATM which is near the main plaza. There is also an office in Cusco where you can purchase your tickets directly as well, that is if you are having issues with the website. But again, please do not do what I did, because you might not be so lucky. Get your tickets at least one week in advance =).

I recommend getting the Machu Picchu + Mountain Ticket, it only costs $61
There are two mountains to choose from, either one is great! 
The mountain views are amazing, and you get some serious extreme exercise!

I recommend spending at least two nights in Aguas Calientes because depending on how you make it to Machu Picchu, you may need some time to recover.

SO YOU FINALLY MADE IT TO AGUAS CLIENTES!

Aguas Calientes is where most of the 4 day treks end up before heading up to the hike up to Machu Picchu. If you are doing the same thing that I did, you can start hiking up from Aguas Calientes (the hike from Aguas Clientes to the entrance of Machu Picchu is FREE). The hike is about 1 1/2 hours on average if you are taking your time, or you are out of shape. It is pretty much straight vertical with some flats that crossover some of the shuttle bus double tracks. If you do not want to do the hike up from Aguas Calientes, you can take the shuttle bus which is about $10-12 each way. Be warned though, there is a long line for the shuttle buses no matter if you have a shuttle ticket or not. Let's put it this way, it was faster for me to hike up and down versus waiting in line for a shuttle.

I purchased the Machu Picchu + Mountain Ticket (Montana Mountain or "Old Mountain") because the more popular one "Huayna Mountain" was all booked up way before I started looking at tickets.  If I am not mistaken, the Huayna Mountain is shorter but steeper, and has some actual ruins, versus the "Old Mountain" is longer, still very treacherous, but without any ruins atop the mountain. The average hike time to the top of the "Old Mountain" is about 2-3 hours. If you are in pretty good condition, you can do it in far less time, my buddy and I did it in exactly one hour.

If you are not doing a multi-day trek to Machu Picchu, I recommend doing the hike up from Machu Picchu, then one of the mountain peaks, the Inca Bridge, the village, and then hike back down to Aguas Calientes. After that, you'll be craving a CusQuena Beer, maybe a few of them!

And that's how I did Machu Picchu on a budget. You don't have to spend a lot of money to see this "Wonder of the World", you just have to be adventurous, do a little bit of research, and be willing to be independent of tour companies to save some cash. If you have any questions, feel free to message me, but most of all, go out and explore, it's a beautiful world out there! =)
