Howdy, IAmDanElson, Founder of IAmDanElson.com & this is my life story so far.
IAmDanElson The Story So Far
I’ve done what society says you should do, notice the word should. I went through school, college and then straight into University. Don’t get me wrong it was all good, and then I eventually got the 9 to 5 job I wanted in Digital Marketing working for one of the UK’s leading Search Marketing Agency’s (Epiphany Search) and gradually I went up the corporate ladder, got myself a city center apartment and loved every minute!
But at 26, deep down I knew this couldn’t be it. Was this really what I wanted? Did I just get bored? Were my silly years in my “twenties” running out? I’m not sure what actually pushed me to do, most likely a lot of reason but I did I booked my Round The World Trip and I never looked back…
I’ve had some amazing experiences, seen places I never thought I’d see and met super cool people from all walks of life…
What am I doing now? I moved back in with my parents back in Jan 2016, got a 9 to 5 job again, this time for another of the big players in Digital Marketing iProspect, worked on this very website, saved like a madman (no fancy dinners out yo!), sold things I didn’t need or want any more on Ebay and once I hit my saving goal of £7000 (find out exactly how I did this so quickly here!) I was off again to explore more of South East Asia!
Now….I’m sat in Sydney Australia with a working holiday visa living it up at the other side of the world. At the moment this is where life has lead, live in the moment and enjoy every minute of it because we just don’t know how long we have. Honestly, you really don’t know where this journey called life will take you once you take that very first step! Opportunities are everywhere you just need to start seeing them!
My mission through this website is to inspire YOU to improve your life through travel, just like I’m doing. I honestly believe you can do this too, I’m not made from a different cloth. If you want to travel the world and leave your 9 to 5 job you really can. I want to inspire you with amazing experiences, stories, images and videos of just what you can expect once you make that first step. As well as showing you how I saved and make money along the way to fund my ongoing travels.
Put all doubts a side because as soon as you get out and experience the world you won’t want to come back. Fact!
Just do it. Get that first flight booked and see where it takes you. This is now my life, my life has changed I’d say for the better and without that first step I wouldn’t have seen, experienced, tasted, smelt so much that the world has to offer!
My experiences through travel and working for two of the biggest Digital Marketing agencies in the UK puts me in the perfect position to show you just how this is possible, heck I’ve done it myself twice and now I’m living and working in Sydney!
Travel and Digital Marketing are my life passions and I want to share what I’ve learnt and experienced with you to inspire you to become the best version of your self through travelling the world.
You Have One Life, That Is It. What Are You Going To Do With Yours?
