Introducing The January – June 2015 Interns

Posted by | Entrepreneur, internship, travel blog boot camp | 6 Comments

When I first had the idea for the brand boot camps in 2012, I ran a test group of interns through the program for three months. Peter went on to launch his own series of adult websites, while Paulette landed a job at the university where she finished her Masters. Gabe went on to apply it to his music career, launching his own YouTube channel.

Since then, the brand boot camps have been where I spend a good portion of my time, helping others to build up their brands and launch their online careers. But not everyone can afford the price tag of coming to Mexico to train alongside Cris and myself. Devlin was our live-in assistant from June of 2013 until August of 2014, and since then we’ve seen a couple of other interns working with us…which led us to launch the full intern program kicking off in January of 2015 with an international array of seven bloggers.

Posted by | adventure tours, Mexico, travel blog boot camp | 2 Comments

There are few places in the world which manage to stir my heart-strings as much as Chiapas, Mexico. There is a reason Cristina and I are looking to put down permanent roots somewhere in the state, and there is a reason why we are hosting our travel blog boot camps in Palenque, and running our adventure tours here in the same region.

With registration now open for the next boot camp in Palenque from January 12th – 16th 2015, we wanted to share with you some of the highlights of the region in and around Palenque, and what you will see when you come down to join us for our week-long course on blogging, brand-building, social media management, Internet marketing and beyond.  Read More

Posted by | adventure tours, Entrepreneur, Social Media, travel blog boot camp | 2 Comments

After the downtime between Cristina’s surgery March 2014 and our travel blog boot camp in August, and then TBEX in September, I’m happy to say that we are back with a vengeance. The rest of 2014 is already filled out, and 2015 is starting to fill up as well.

One of the biggest changes coming to the blog will be happening in early 2015, but in order to prepare our readers for that eventuality, I’m going to give you a run-down of what we have been leading up to. Read More

Travel Blog Boot Camp in Palenque, Chiapas – Day Five

Posted by | adventure tours, Mexico, Palenque, travel blog boot camp | 4 Comments

The past week was an adventure-packed, back-to-back series of days as part of our adventure tour/travel blog boot camp here in Palenque, Mexico in the beautiful state of Chiapas. From the ancient Maya ruins of Palenque itself to the waterfalls at Misol Ha and Agua Azul, down the Usumacinta River to the ruins of Yaxchilan, back to the ruins of Bonampak and the jungle surrounding, it’s been an exciting time along with our most recent graduate, Amelia from The Everyday Journey.

From here, we’ve only got a few more days until we head to TBEX in Cancun on September 9th, where I’ll be presenting on advanced Facebook marketing and advertising solutions. In the meantime, let’s take a look at what we’ve been up to during our tour and class with an in-depth series of photos and videos. Read More
