I've been on a hiatus from blogging at Rock Your Genius for the past couple of months (more on that later), but this story was just too important to wait. Here goes.
These are my friends Betsy and Warren.
Wait, no, those are some penguins in Antartica that were photographed by my friends Betsy and Warren.
That's Betsy and Warren . . . in Antartica.
Here they are in England.
And, in Scotland.
In Argentina. I don't think they were drunk here, but I guess it's possible.
Here's Warren in Scotland taking over a bar. See what I mean?
All jokes aside, Betsy and Warren are living a pretty good life.
They've been all over the world - to Ecuador, Columbia, Peru, Argentina, Ushuaia, Antarctica, across the Atlantic on a 37-day cruise to Norway then England, to Scotland, Belgium, Germany, house-sitting on a boat in Amsterdam in the Netherlands, to France, and to Thailand - all in one year!
Not long ago, it was an entirely different story - in their words, "climbing the corporate ladder, getting married, buying a house, getting divorced, climbing the ladder some more, getting married again, accumulating more crap, and keeping repeating the process like hamsters on a wheel."
Then, after a serious wakeup call and several margaritas, Betsy and Warren decided to jump off the hamster wheel and embark on an open-ended trip around the world. They originally set a goal of traveling for a year, but ended up accumulating enough cash for five!
But, here's the best part.
They're sharing their strategy so that you, too, can live your dream life!
Dream. Save. Do.
Imagine waking up every day knowing that you are living the life you always wanted. Your bills are paid off, you are living where and how you want, and pursuing the work or activities that bring you the most satisfaction.
Betsy and Warren have just released Dream, Save, Do: A Step-by-Step Guide to Amass the Cash to Live Your Dream, which shares their proven strategy for saving big bucks in a short period of time for your own specific dream: travel, starting a business, creating something like a book or an invention, or even buying a house or starting a family.
Take my word for it. As Betsy's accountability partner for five years, I've personally witnessed this entire dream come to life, from the Monday morning after their margarita-filled dreamfest when they decided to travel the world, to this very day when their new book is released showing you how to do it, too.
If you're ready to live the good life, it's waiting for you. Dream. Save. Do.
