I make Nomad List, Remote OK, Places to Work, Colive and am now learning 3D to launch my first VR apps. I travel to work from anywhere, bootstrap companies and only own what fits in my backpack. I also made 12 startups in 12 months. Before, I made a YouTube w/ 100+ mln views. Follow me on Twitter, Instagram or read my posts. You can pre-order my book MAKE now.
