About me


Hi, I’m Edwin. I’m 26 years old, from California who decided to leave the country and figure it out later.

I enjoy trying new food, volunteering and good conversation. One time, I was able to talk myself out of a robbery, with the guy returning me the cell phones before he left. 

I like showing people that it is possible to make a living doing what they want and getting started on being digital nomads, if that’s their thing.

“I thought there was something wrong with me for refusing to live the 9-5 job lifestyle. My friends, my family, they all looked at me with that look that says ‘I’m worried about you.'”

How I Made My First Dollar Online

In 2014, I left California to go to Mexico, and eventually ended up in South America, where I am now.

See, I had been studying and working up until 2013 when I decided to build my own business selling notebooks, after reading a book by Chris Guillebeau called “The $100 Startup” (you can find it on my Resources page).

And I was terrified.

Charging for a product I made myself was easily the scariest thing in the world. Either way, it had to be done. I set up the website, and waited. The next morning, I had an email from PayPal saying that I had earned $7.14 from a sale.

Since then, I’ve learned about creating digital product, about affiliate marketing, and how to create a passive income online while traveling around. I’ve sold a blog, sold links and ad space. I’ve translated languages for money in Peru, unloaded a small truck for pizza at a restaurant in Chile, and taught Spanish here in Ecuador.  

It works and I didn’t think I could do it at first. Now I am working on growing an online business that will help me live anywhere, and let time be my own again.
