I’ve Been Featured on Richard Branson’s Virgin Blog

January 13, 2016



One of the most stupid, idiotic and dingbatish things I’ve done as an entrepreneur is to *not* tell folks when I was featured on prominent blogs.


Call it a mental block.


Or call it moronic behavior.




Lesson learned.


Now I tell everybody and their brother about being featured on top blogs.


I attempted to relay this exciting โ€œcreature featureโ€ (me being the creature) message to a red headed iguana at the beach in Dominicalito here in Costa Rica a few hours ago. He gazed into my eyes with a vacant stare.


Anyway, when I told the lady at the local pulperia she looked at me like this gringo just got off of the Weirdmobile from Mars.


If I am telling iguanas and ticas in Costa Rica about being featured on one of the top entrepreneur blogs on earth you just knew I had to tell ya.


Virgin Appearance….


I am so excited, appreciative and floored to announce that……


I have been featured on Richard Branson’s Virgin Entrepreneur Blog!


I shared my biggest digital nomad failure. Important message here for travelers and hell, for any human being, and I feel you’d be interested in my feedback/take on my biggest failure on the road. Note; it is related to my recent torturous and enlightening house sit in Buena Vista, Costa Rica.

OK….I’ve had a….


Banner Month


This Virgin appearance comes on the heels of being featured on Forbes and also on Neil Patel’s blog.


What a whirlwind month! And I barely worked. I was stranded in a jungle hut with an outhouse, no electricity, no internet, and hell….not much of anything, 3 miles deep into the wilderness of Costa Rica.


Talk about the power of surrender, eh?


Team Effort


Without you I am writing a diary here at Blogging from Paradise.


I love you. I appreciate you. I know you made these sensational features possible.


No way I’m making an appearance on Richard Branson’s blog unless you’re:


  • reading my blog
  • tweeting my posts
  • sharing my posts on Facebook, G Plus, LinkedIn and….everywhere
  • buying my eBooks
  • buying my audio course
  • hiring me
  • being brand advocates/rabid fans


This has been a team effort so this celebration post is about you and me, because YOU made this possible.


Call to Action


That’s it my lovelies.

  1. I hope Grandma’s feeling better Tara!

  2. Hi Ryan! Congrats on the feature! I’ve stopped by a few times lately, but got interrupted before I was able to leave you a decent comment (I went from traveling full time to (temporarily) caring for my grandmother full time, so lots of interruptions, haha).
    Thank you for consistently providing honest, helpful advice. And for admitting your mistakes and helping us learn from them.
    Through inspiration from some of your posts, and a chat with a fellow blogging buddy from TBEX, I decided I needed to change lanes with Hippie Hits The Road to focus more on things I am really passionate about, and that are not as well covered by other travel bloggers, like involvement in social justice, squatting vs CouchSurfing, volunteering, and dumpster diving and hitchhiking tips as opposed to the typical styles of budget travel covered on most blogs.
    I am really excited for this new direction. Thanks for being a part of that inspiration to just follow what is right for me.

  3. Luke appreciate it buddy!
