[Book Teaser] The Art Of Authority

JoshBlog8 Comments

Some of you might already be aware that we're in the process of writing a book which is due to launch in one month today – on May 20th, 2013.

We're calling it “The Art Of Authority” and it's designed to help you take what you're either passionate about or know really well and turn it into a successful authority site and lifestyle business.

This isn't going to be just another one of those “hey here's a bunch of shit that sounds great, but we don't actually use” kind of guides.

Instead, it will be the exact process we use to build high end authority sites that result in LONG TERM, passive income.

The kind that will get you out of the nine to five and into a whole new life of unimaginable possibility.

We decided to set a launch date to hold ourselves accountable to you guys. Plus, to prove we're actually doing this, we wanted to give you a little teaser which also happens to be the preface to the book. It's still a work in progress and has a long way to go, but we were just to damn excited to keep it to ourselves!

This Book Is A Gift

I hate hearing the word “free”, don't you? Whenever I hear it, I immediately think the opposite is actually the case.

In this circumstance however, it's the freakin' truth. You won't have to pay for this book.

We only ask that you think of us the next time one of your friends mentions how much they hate their job. This book is designed implicitly for that situation and we want anyone and everyone to know about it.

Anyway, enough procrastinating, we've only got a month until the deadline so we better get back to it!

    Proud of you guys!

      Thanks so much Stace 🙂

    Thank you for doing what you do and sharing your life with us. I am self-employed in Toronto but have to admit the best experiences of my life were in Thailand. I would give anything to be able to pack my possessions in a 40L backpack and leave Toronto for Borneo, Thailand, Philippines….anywhere with a warm ocean, beach, and good eats. It is not that easy for me since I work in health care however that doesn’t matter. What you manage to inspire is the fact that we have the power and ability to do what we want, when we want…if we want. Thank you for sharing this book and inspiring us all. Keep doing the good.

      I cannot possibly thank you enough for that message, you truly made our day! We appreciate it more than you know!!

      And I am absolutely sure there are a TON of opportunities to turn your expertise in the health care industry into a profitable online business for yourself if you would want that kinda life 🙂

      You just have to do what’s right for you!

      And on a travel note – where in Thailand were you?

        Hi Jill

        I’ve been to Thailand twice. The first was just for 2 weeks after spending some time in New Dehli, India. My boyfriend and I travelled to Koh Samui for a day but spent most of our time on Koh Tao. It was such a magical place. This was back in 2008. When we returned for a 6 week trip in 2010 Koh Tao had changed drastically. The tiny little guest houses run by the locals had been knocked down and turned into giant resorts. We finally found a little place at the south end of the island overlooking Shark Bay. One day we snorkelled with about 20 reef sharks. Here is a video of us snorkelling with them and my mind being blown. https://vimeo.com/10101405

        We didn’t stay on Koh Tao for long and ventured south coming across the amazing island of Koh Lipe. If you get a chance to travel to the south of Thailand, take it. The water is even warmer and the ocean life is much better preserved. We took a boat across the border to Malaysia, staying in Langkawi for a few day (horrible place) and then went to Kuala Lumpur – one of my favourite cities in the world. From there we flew to Vietnam and travelled for a bit but it was Tet (Vietnamese New Year) so it was mad crazy and every train and hotel was booked so we hauled it back to Thailand.

        I miss travelling so friggen much and I’m so happy I came across your blog and instagram so I can live vicariously through you for now until I can hop on a plane.

        Have a great day guys!


        P.S. Loved the Koh Tao Mafia story!

          Oh my gosh we loved Shark Bay!! Cool video…how crazy is it snorkelling with sharks? I swear, for the first two minutes I was having heart palpitations! lol 😉

          As for your Malaysian adventures…yeah I wasn’t a huge fan of Langkawi either but it was pretty to look at lol. And I have to ask, why is KL your favourite city in the world? I don’t mind it but it definitely isn’t my favourite…however I did LOVE Penang and we have two really great friends in KL so it makes it more tolerable for me lol!!

          Do you think you will start travelling again or are you settled back home for now?

          Thanks for the kind words about the blog…you’re makin’ us blush 🙂

            Have you guys tried scuba diving? I learned to dive on Koh Tao and got my advanced diving in Koh Lipe. Breathing underwater is one of the most relaxed experiences I have ever had. If you’re ever having a bad day all you have to do is strap on your gear and dive in and all your stresses melt away.

            I never made it to Penang (although I should have since Penang curry is one of most favourite dishes). I’m not sure why I love KL so much. It may have just been my state of mind when I was there. It was just such a tropical city with warm and friendly people. It was also very easy for me to eat there (eating vegetarian is challenging in Asia) and travelling around on the light rail transit was so easy and fun. I just fell in love with the city. There was one day where we walked around for almost 8 hours (in Havaianas of all footwear) but it felt like less than an hour.

            We will travel again but I’m not sure when. I’m self employed in health care and book patients up to 2 months in advanced so I can’t just take off unless it is well planned. My BF is self employed working in film and TV so he is always hesitant to book a trip in advance for fear he may be offered a job. Your blog post about money not being everything summed it up really well. Thankfully we are both happy and love what we do as tiring as it can be. However, I feel that some time away from home and work is therapeutic and needed from time to time so hopefully we will book a trip soon.

            Fun fact that I learned on the way to Penang – Penang curry is actually not named after the island Penang! It’s actually a Thai curry! Is your mind blown as much as mine was?! I was floored! lol

            As for the food in KL…oh my gosh Malaysian food has to be one of my favourite cuisines in the world! SO many amazing dishes. Whenever we go there we meet up with two friends of ours who just love trying new places and new dishes so they always take us somewhere new which we always end up loving.

            Also, I wish I could pump Sambal into my veins I love it so much! hahaha 😉

            As for Koh Lipe, we may just have to see it for ourselves…it looks absolutely stunning! We’re not divers but we’re a couple of snorkelling fiends! lol I actually think we were probably the only people living on Koh Tao who weren’t there for diving.
