If it’s so you can travel the world, then then listen up!
Travis Sherry wants to share how to live location independent.
Travis and his wife, Heather, started Extra Pack of Peanuts to share their travel secrets with the rest of us and now it funds their location independent lifestyle.
I met Travis while we were both traveling this summer! We accidentally met in Victoria, BC through our mutual friend Mike Vardy of the Productivityist, but we weren’t supposed to meet until the following weekend in Oregon at the home of another awesome mutual friend Vanessa Tharp, who also happens to be the Camp Director of Camp Indie. Then we all hung out at the World Domination Summit in Portland
As you can see your world can get very small and interconnected when you start living location independent!
Lot of great lessons in our conversation including:
- How Travis and his wife have been able to travel for a fraction of the cost for an average traveler.
- Why he can’t imagine being a parent and working a regular 9 – 5 job.
- What he does about his family’s healthcare when he travels.
- Why he recommends getting your business started before worrying about planning things like taxes and retirement savings.

How do you find more time to do what it is that you really want to do? Travis had this advice:
1) Set non-negotiable time when you know you can get good work done and stick to it.
2) You may end up putting more time in, but make your non-negotiable time the minimum.
