Hi, I’m Greg, and I’ll be your instructor.
A little bit about me… I’ve been traveling the world since I was fourteen years-old. I began my career hitchhiking the country, hopping on random buses to wherever, and eventually graduated to plane fare. I now hold the Guinness World Record for Longest Journey by Car in a Single Country, host the Vagabond Secrets Podcast, wrote a couple books, and have contributed to various media publications as a travel writer.
My adventures have been featured in many places, some of them listed below…
Okay enough about me… I’m here to break down a few false beliefs that have plagued the media industry for years. The myth is this:
You have to know people = WRONG
You need a portfolio = WRONG
You need a degree = WRONG
When I started I knew nobody, I had no portfolio (just a blog that nobody was reading), and I never even graduated high school. All I had were my experiences and stories to tell…
And I’ll tell you this: That was enough.
That’s all you need, and I’m going to show you how this all works.
Course Objectives & Outcomes
How to Sell Your Travel Stories to Major Media Outlets
You want to be able to cash in on all the adventures you’re taking, but there’s a method to the madness. That’s what you’ll learn inside the course.
PICKING THE RIGHT ADVENTURE
Where should you go? What should you do? These questions play an important part in your travel writing career.
Pitching the media
You’ll learn how to find the right editors to pitch, and what to say when you email them for the first time.
How to negotiate your fees
You need to get paid—and get paid well. That’s why you need a system to negotiate with clients and editors to always get a fair fee.
Scheduling Your Trips
Don’t just set off on your next adventure until you learn WHEN the optimal time to leave actually is…

Ready to go?
By the way…
How long have you wanted to travel the world and nothing has happened? There’s probably a trip that’s been on your to-do list for the last decade and now time is slipping by and nothing is happening.
Well, one of the biggest hurdles to traveling the world is time and money. You have no time and have no money. What if there was a way to get both time AND money? Not only that, what if that solution REQUIRED you to have fun and travel the globe whenever you wanted?
Not a bad pre-requisite, right?
The Secret to Travel Writing is a 9-module writing intensive that’ll walk you through our secret— but proven—step-by-step method for how to travel the world and make money while doing it; writing stories about your journey and taking photos along the way (for money).
Maybe you’re ALREADY traveling, or have no desire to necessarily travel more… but you’re spinning your wheels and your content is going to waste.
…churning out art, articles, blog posts, podcasts, social media posts, freelance gigs, SEO tactics, marketing stuff, sponsorships… ahhh! It’s so exhausting!
Creativity needs to be loud and seen. Are you taking great photographs with nobody looking at them? Writing fantastic blog posts without any recognition? Podcasting with no listeners? Holding workshops with few attendees?
That’s because in order to become known in your business you need to establish a brand that NOBODY can ignore.
Your brand name needs to not only be in demand, but revered. This has absolutely NOTHING to do with social media. The secret art of self-promotion is done by grabbing the spotlight all on your own with one simple idea.
That’s what the Secret to Travel Writing is all about. You MUST get your portfolio out of obscurity and into the public eye today.
Not to mention…
Missing the fun in your life? Glued to your phone? We can all relate… and it’s not only not fun, but it’s addictive and seriously depressing. Travel is the best way to break away from that.
The Secret to Travel Writing is a system to get you off your phone and out into the world, one adventure at a time THEN getting paid to write about it!
The best part is you can do this whether you’re a ski instructor, yoga teacher, park ranger, blogger, fashion influencer, artist, model, musician… anything you love to do, here is how to travel and write about it. Build a life you can be proud of.
If you’re feeling like your career is at a standstill and you’re focusing on too many things… If you’re worried about a million moving parts, stop. That can be VERY stressful and eventually, you’ll burn out.
But what if you could stop worrying about affiliate marketing, building an email list, SEO, social media, followers, likes, posts, ads, and all that marketing stuff that really gets in the way of writing about what you truly love?
The Secret to Travel Writing will get you closer to the life you’ve always dreamt of having. It’s based on the premise that there’s no time to be self-critical, judge others, or be envious of the life you truly want. Get it now.
