Sell Everything and Become The World's Best Travel Blogger

January 16, 2024

We've all daydreamed about quitting our job, selling everything and then ruthlessly following our passion.  

Well, Gary Arndt (@everythingeverywhere) did it.

He cashed out and went island hopping through the South Pacific to follow his passion for photography and now he's known as one of the best photographers in the world.

In this week’s interview Gary Arndt tells us about how he made this dream a reality as a self taught photographer who went on to become Travel Photographer of the Year, one of the world’s top travel bloggers, and a podcast host for CBS.

Gary has gone on to visit over 170 countries around the world and all 7 continents. Some of the highlights from his travels include:

  • Visiting an active war zone in Cambodia
  • Being kicked out of the nation of Kiribati
  • Been spelunking in Borneo
  • Swimming with whale sharks in Australia
  • And many more adventures you need to read about on his popular travel blog, Everything Everywhere.

I had the amazing opportunity to pick Gary’s brain about what he’s learned about the world, business, blogging, and stepping up our Instagram game.

His big takeaway?  Do something interesting and do something unique.

If you find yourself just copying what other successful people are doing, you’ll never find the blueprint for success you are looking for.
