TraveLiving: Creating Your Own Portable Lifestyle

Tuesday 31st, March 2009


Dear Friends & Fellow Travelers,

Wow, Spring is here and we can see that a lot more people are traveling (and even more positive about the economy, a recent poll shows). We have a slew of trips coming up before we make a big international splash in late April.

It's a PERFECT time to get yourself moving toward this wonderful, mobile life. We suggest doing so with at least a weekend trip somewhere.

This life can get you into motion, breaking any inertia of being in a rut so that you can move forward. You are, in effect, aiding the Universe in bringing new stuff into your life. No longer will it be the same old, same old.

If you have felt stuck, The Portable Lifestyle™ is a great way to let in the new: new experiences, a new standard of living, new excitement and of course, NEW revenues! We have noticed that as we have progressed, our lifestyle has gotten better than ever and so has our income.

Use the feeling of new hope that Spring brings to take a step toward your own Portable Lifestyle, even if it's something as simple as buying a new bathing suit or bookmarking a few travel websites.

We can't wait to hear about your OWN travels, too, and LOVE when we hear what some of you are doing!

Abundant Travels,
            Jon & Kathryn

Free & Handy Backup

Kathryn has been having some PC challenges as she's discovered she's not a fan of Windows Vista (apparently few people are). Jon uses a Mac. As she's been experimenting with different systems and computers, Kathryn has found a great way to park info she needs on the web.

She used her Yahoo! account to put her calendar, contacts, notes, links and to file emails. We had never needed it before, but Kathryn has been very grateful at how much she'd already put on Yahoo! She's decided that from now on, she will keep some backup data on Yahoo! It's FREE, easy to access if you have internet and can save you if you have a data crash.

No doubt, you, too, store more than you used to on the web. We recommend stashing some key info you need on your email account. Most of them include functions like calendar, notes and address book. If something happens, you'll be glad you did!

TRAVEL: Refunds & Changes

We have gotten so-called impossible (we don't believe that word) refunds for things like prepaid, disappointing lodging (a few times).

We also had to change a flight in South Africa when our youngest, Julian got a fever and the airline not only did this at about an hour's notice but only charged us a $10 change fee for FOUR air tickets.

How? We used the "flat tire" informal refund policy. We throw ourselves at their mercy and jot down a few things to support our case. We don't whine or scream but offer a logical and friendly reason, then ask for what we want. Always at least TRY this -- you'd be surprised how often it can get you what you need. The travel industry really does WANT you to be happy!

If this is a problem for you -- like Jon, who can be timid about speaking up -- this article will help: http://tinyurl.com/RDcustserv.

What Is Your Biggest Block to Travel?

Since we launched The Portable Lifestyle™ last November we have had an amazing time TraveLiving and have learned just how to immerse ourselves in a life we love. Still, we have heard from many of you out there that you just aren't ready to embark on such a lifestyle. We want to make sure that ALL OF YOU are getting what YOU need to travel the way YOU WANT.

Our next FREE TELESEMINAR (tentatively scheduled 1 month from now) is being designed to focus on the issues that tend to "hold people back" from traveling and living a portable life. And to support you the best we can, we want to know what YOUR BIGGEST BLOCK is to traveling in, let's say, the next six months. What is keeping you from achieving The Portable Lifestyle™ of YOUR dreams?

Please email us any of your issues, blocks, or fears to travel so that we can make the best of the discussion and support you in overcoming your specific issues and open you up to the unbelievable and amazing opportunities that surround us all!

This truly IS the BEST TIME EVER to set yourself up for a portable life and we look forward to seeing you out there in the world. The time is NOW.


And if you haven't yet listened to our introductory teleseminar, "Planting the Seeds to Your Portable Lifestyle", please do it NOW. Double-check your old emails for the link to download it for free or register here.

Or better yet, purchase The Portable Lifestyle™ Primer and find yourself up and about in no time. The Primer has already helped dozens of people "just like you" get started on moving into a new and awesome portable life.

We look forward to hearing from you and addressing all of your concerns!
