YouTuber, Traveler & Entrepreneur

I'm Annette. In 2017, I sold all of my stuff and quit my job to travel full-time. I now own three companies, and have a community of 130,000 that also want to squeeze the juice out of life. Join us below.

But Let's Back it Up For a Quick Sec...

Before the full-time traveling. Before the digital nomad lifestyle. Before the community of 130,000+ loyal subscribers and millions of views... there was a girl that wanted nothing more than to travel the world.

I used to have this ridiculous belief that travel was something reserved only for the rich and "special". And that somehow, my life's destiny was to be miserable, grinding away at 9-5 job that made me feel overworked, and underappreciated, instead of living a life I loved.

But then I thought to myself...
Why not me?

And So The Journey Began...

The night after my wedding, was a night I will never forget.

After the happiest day of our lives, my husband, Daniel, and I decided we couldn't live grinding away anymore.

We bought one-way tickets and set off on the journey of a lifetime. 

A 5-year journey to every country in the world. 

We bought one way tickets to Bangkok, Thailand, jumped on with our $15,000 in savings, and crossed our fingers.

But 8-months into our trip, we started to run out of money and realized we had to think fast, or risk going home.

That's when we boarded a one-way flight to Australia for working holiday.

When we arrived, we were so broke we had to sleep on the floor for 4 months. Not exactly the highlight of my career.
But I made a promise to myself that I would never be in that position again - leveling up my skills to be the best version of me for myself and for others. 

And by January of 2019, I had made my first $1,000 from my laptop.

The rest was history.
