About

This website is the domain of John Venture.

You read many blogs online from those who slate the modern world. The ‘9-5 grind’. The office death. They advocate living on $50 a day, taking off with no plan and nowhere to go, eating every food, drinking and partying, living every day as if it your last (I have to say I love most of these sites and agree with parts of all of them – see recommended reading for the inspired).

My beliefs can be summarised in one word… FREEDOM.

What do you want to do?

Travel? Build a business? Maintain trains? Design air conditioning systems? Work your way up the traditional way to be CEO? Work from the beach sipping Pina Coladas?

I AM NOT HERE TO JUDGE YOU.

I am here to let you know that you can do any of these things.

BUT…

What does everyone need for this.

FINANCIAL SECURITY, SCALABILITY and SOME LOCATIONAL FREEDOM.

When I have to make a major decision i ask myself the same question - does this choice increase my freedom?

BACKGROUND

John started life as as an Engineer out of University in the UK. He quickly tired of being stuck at a desk, charged out to clients at exorbitant rates and worrying about money.

At 25 he decided to take the skills that he was being sold for and offer them directly to his contacts as a consultant. This opened his eyes to the fact that not everyone has the will or the desire to take this step.

After another year of this John was still not satisfied and so started to experiment with online businesses. Through many experiments he has found the strategies that work and knows that there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to making it online.
