There’s one thing that I cherish above all. No, it’s not money. Money is just pieces of paper with dead presidents. It comes and goes. Earn today, spend tomorrow. Actually, it’s time. After all, time is something that we have in limited supply and can’t really get back once we’ve used it up. If you […]
The post How To Convert Your Free Time Into A Profitable Side Hustle appeared first on Maverick Traveler.
I was having a conversation with a friend the other day. We were enjoying a beautiful summer day in one of Kiev’s outside restaurant terraces. “You, know”, he said. “Ukraine is one of the freest countries on this planet.” “What do you mean?” I asked him. “Well, you can do pretty much anything you want […]
Travel has always been in my blood. Perhaps it was something about learning about the exotic far away worlds via first-hand experience instead of reading about them from some books. Maybe it was the perennial desire to explore coupled with imagination and curiosity. Most likely a combination of the two. In any case, here’s an […]
It’s summertime here in Eastern Europe, and after suffering through a freezing winter with lots of snow, it’s nice to finally not needing to wear 20 layers of clothing just to throw out the trash. Summers are also the perfect time for catching up on some overdue reading. Here are some books I’ve been reading […]
I was recently seeing off a good friend in Kiev’s international airport. As I was exiting the newly built terminal, I stopped for a moment to think how much I enjoy airports. I’ve probably been to over 50 airports around the world, but one of the most memorable experiences I had was back in 2005 when […]
The post As The World Interconnects, Experience Becomes A Commodity appeared first on Maverick Traveler.
One of the reasons I left America back in 2009 and have been living abroad ever since is because I always knew there was something wrong with the environment I found myself in. Since I hadn’t yet developed a deeper understanding of the underlying issues, I couldn’t exactly pinpoint as to what exactly was wrong; I couldn’t […]
If you’ve been around the “making money online” theme long enough (and that’s also why you’re probably reading this amazing blog), you’ve probably heard of the following quote at some point: “If you want to make money, don’t start a blog—build a business.” There’s a lot of truth there. Blogging is a collection of articles, […]
The post Crowdfunding Is Forever Revolutionizing The Creator Economy appeared first on Maverick Traveler.
The Internet is swamped with productivity advice about how you can work for less while being more productive than ever. The problem with most of this advice is that it’s not only misleading but counterproductive and even harmful. Productivity advice is as old as the concept of work itself, but the current mass craze can […]

In order to build anything lasting, you must always start with a careful examination of the foundation. If you plan to build a skyscraper that will stretch deep into the sky, you must first construct a resilient base that will support its enormous mass. But even before that, you need to have stable landmass underneath […]
I’ve been taking Uber here in Kiev, Ukraine pretty much everywhere. I really like Uber. Not only is it super cheap (a drive around the city costs about the same as a NYC subway ticket), but it’s also super convenient. It’s one of the easiest services I’ve ever used in my life. One thing I didn’t […]
It’s been around ten years since I quit my job and decided to go on my own. Since then I’ve traveled around the world while building all kinds of different online businesses. I won’t lie and say that things have been easy because they haven’t. The correct word is challenging. Specialization The biggest change—and the […]

Although I’ve known to veer off topic every now and then, the core of my writing has been the nexus of travel and self-improvement. After living abroad for ten years, I’ve come to the conclusion there’s absolutely nothing that helps you to improve as a person as extensively living abroad. First, there are obvious benefits. Traveling […]
The post The Underrated But Crucial Link Between Travel and Self-Improvement appeared first on Maverick Traveler.
Although they’re virtually unlimited ways of making money—both offline and online—all of them can be condensed into two basic models. The first model is the product-first model. That’s where you start with a particular product or service you want to sell. It can be pretty much anything: mattresses, power tools, toys, tables or chandeliers. It […]
