Dear Fellow Traveler,

Sometimes when we're super busy traveling, we forget to write you, but it seems appropos to do so during a summer of heavy movement. We have been everywhere from the tropics to Alaska this summer, and hope you are finding time for a vacation, too.

We wanted to let you know a few tips we've picked up lately as we continue our Portable Lifestyle -- new ways to make money virtually (it gets easier & easier!) as well as our secrets to flying First Class.

Also, in honor of vacation season, we are doing a FREE teleseminar Permanent Vacation - When Going Virtual Gets FUN! in mid-August to show you ways of making your life an Endless Vacation sooner rather than later. To sign up, go to our Events Page.

Talk to you soon!

The Value of Information Purveying

Backyard PlaysetInformation is worth more than ever. So much out there that people have made billions these days off of streamlining, presenting things in an easily accessible, digestible and sortable way. Making things available and easy-to-find is worth much to folks, particularly if you offer them ways to make money, ways to save money or anything that helps them dissolve pain (a highly motivating market factor) and get to a better place.


Even if you are in a location-specific field, there are ways to parlay this into a virtual business. Ex: the tennis coach who put together an interactive series of ebooks that not only taught technique but also mental game and demonstrated methods that the coach taught for improving the game. AND the realtor who began luxury listing services around the globe adding in features like local buying guidelines, 360 video views and more. If you can take something like a realtor business virtual, you KNOW anything can be made into a lucrative virtual business.

To find out some of the latest ways to go virtual and begin living your endless vacation, don't miss our upcoming free teleseminar.

First Class Air Travel: Easier than Ever

FirstClass In our Portable Lifestyle Primer, we show you how to book first class travel -- 5 star hotels, luxury experiences and flying in luxury -- all at a budget price.

The fact is that it has become easier than ever to fly First or Business Class for little or no extra expense-- without putting yourself at the mercy of the airline, hoping to get upgraded.

Here are some tips on how to fly First Class easily without spending as much as the price of a new car!

1.   When you are using miles to pay for a flight, always pick the First Class option and see how many more miles it will be. Sometimes, you can get first or business class for only a few thousand miles more and when you factor in free bags, food and drink, not to mention the luxury experience, it is easily worth it.

2.   While booking economy class, check to see how much an upgrade to First or Business may be. Sometimes, airlines offer special deals on upgrading that are much less than paying full fare for these tickets.

3.   Every time you book, make a note of when upgrade sales become available. Most airlines will try to squeeze out a bit of money for any unsold higher class seats. A day or two before your flight, you can pay as little as $40 per flight to upgrade. It is worthwhile to make a note on your calendar and check in for these deals.

4.   The website Flyfirstclass.com will search for you to find higher level flight seats at a 40-70% discount off of full fare.

5.   Try the “first class/business” option with consolidators like Expedia.com and Kayak.com. Fares are often surprisingly low.

6.   The cheapest days to fly are Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday, so plan your flights to include those days when possible. The savings can make First & Business Class flying more in range.
