I've been traveling around the world for 3 years non-stop while running my online business, which is my sole source of income. Ask me anything!
Happy thanksgiving Reddit!
Right after graduating from university, I decided to sell my possessions and hit the road with a big backpack that doubles as my portable office. I started my company Postertext (you may have heard about it over at r/books) while still in school, and have been growing it ever since.
My company designs and sells art prints for book lovers. The illustrations are made entirely out of text. No lines, no edges, only words! They make great presents for the bibliophiles in your lives.
I roughly used Tim Ferriss' 4-Hour Workweek model for the business. I've traveled to over 30 countries in my lifetime (and still growing).
Ask me anything!
EDIT1 You guys have been great! It's currently 3:20AM where I am. I have nothing to do tomorrow so I'll try to answer as many questions as I can but I may become more and more delirious. Bear with me :)
EDIT2 This IAMA has gotten way more attention than anticipated, and my business is slowly being hugged to death. Thanks!...and pardon the slowness of the site.
EDIT3 Your gentle hug has now become a fiery punch from the depths of hell. I think the website might just go down anytime now. If it does, and you feel like you have nothing to do, feel free to visit our Facebook page and be our friends. You like to have friends don't you?
EDIT4 It's now 4:41AM -- 5 hours into the IAMA -- and my fingers are about to fly off if I type any more. Thank you all for asking such interesting and thoughtful questions. This has truly been a blast!
Good night, good morning, and good afternoon wherever you are in the world :)
EDIT5 I'm back! There are some really good questions that I thought I would answer. Not going to do too much though since my fingers still hurt from yesterday!
