After getting fired from his job in 2009, John Crestani picked up a book that introduced him to a different perspective in regard to having a career. “The 4-Hour Work Week” by Tim Ferriss teaches people how to work from anywhere.
“There were so many case studies and so many people were doing this and I said this is exactly what I want to do,” Crestani explained. “I want to be able to travel the world, experience life, build skills, and also have a business that contributes and runs.”
Now he makes $250,000 to $500,000 a month — but it didn’t happen overnight. He tried building a bunch of businesses over the years but didn’t find success or sustainability.
“All of these business, some would make a little bit of money and they’d only work for like, a little bit,” he said. “I did affiliate marketing and I could never get something that was, like, sustainable.”
He also experienced roadblocks on the way like self-doubt and information overload. But Crestani eventually found success with online marketing. And since a business of his has finally taken off, he has traveled everywhere. Though he had to work hard along the way, he says he travels and experiences are all worth the struggles.
