Almost Fearless - 30 Day Ebook - Review

Not too long about I read the 30 Day Ebook by Christine at Almost Fearless and I'm not sure why it has taken me so long to write a review.  The book is great if you're looking to make a change in your life, this book is for you!  Even if you haven't considered a change, this book will make you.   While it's geared around travel, it's not only about travel and it has a lot of valuable information.  It's also very action oriented.

The book starts with changing your way of thinking - set a time frame.  Then asking the hard questions - you know, the ones with the easy excuses but hard answers.  But the answers are there, and this book will help you find them. 

I've read a lot and seen a lot about saving money but this book takes a different look at saving money then most others do - do you really need someone else to tell you to stop going to Starbucks?  This topic is covered in a couple different sections, so if you don't see any pearls of wisdom at the start, keep reading, it's there. 

Christine then goes into turning your job digital.  I have mixed feelings about this because my job is 90% being at work, but I know for a lot of people that's not the case.  For a lot of people working at home might seem like a stretch, but really isn't, they just have to figure out how to make it happen. 

What types of careers are out there for digital nomads?  The list is endless and only restricted by your own imagination.  But the book goes into much more detail on this.

The rest of the book is about travel - planning, accomodations, budgeting, homeschooling, airfare, paying bills on the road, health insurance, dealing with family and friends - it's all there.  The section on budgeting is another place where a lot of the same concepts are put out by everyone, but Christine uses a totally different method thats simple and easy.  And even though Christine only has a baby now she talks about educating children in great depth. 

I highly recommend this book to everyone, it's well written and full of great information.  And at $10 it's a steal!

And no, I'm not making any money from this book, I just think it's that good.
