Well not quite dead but it’s been dying for a long time now.
I’m not particularly excited to make a TV show. I am however quite excited on the internet platform. Mainly because of the creative freedom and the pick and choose nature of it.
Right so to cut to the chase I feel you should watch the video first!
Right so if you’re into the outdoors or know someone who is then get in touch. I’ve already started filming so it’s underway. I want variety, action and good times. This is a really good opportunity for someone who wants to cross promote their platform or just want to see how much of a pain in the ass it is to film everything haha.
Please share this around if it sounds like a bit of you!
If you want to get in touch then email me firstname.lastname@example.org or one of the other hundred ways to contact me.
When Round 4 of this years Nationals came around everyone was still in a little bit of shock from the day before. We were greeted with windy and much flatter conditions than the previous day at Whangamata.
What would happen to the points table in this round? Would someone get run over and pop their boat? Watch the video to find out!
And some pictures for your viewing pleasure
Think Ladder 3rd on the day and adding to their Bronze medal collection
Waikato Sandblasting took out second place.
And Protech Design for the Round 4 win!
What a round it as with some casualties making for a tight points table.
Producing a series about living is ironically hard to do when you’re so busy out and about living.
I remember Winter vividly as it feels about twenty minutes ago. It was fun, long and I chose to start the move into a van. In this episode there’s a couple of months crammed into one episodea s a lot of my time was ties up with a van build. Heeeeere you go
As for what’s coming well I can assure you the weather and action turned on from November which is where I’m up to.
The road to self employment is a piece of cake and everyone should do it.
Now that I have your attention I will come clean, That first line isn’t true. For most anyway.
Self employment for me is about a dream. Not just a boring business that I copy and paste a how to from others. It’s about creating what I view is my dream life and living each day as I want to. This isn’t at all easy.
Last week we shot to the Far North to help my parents with their little slice of rocky roaded self eployment. You can find Saturday here
They have had easily enough of their own problems incl that big shed burning down but boy, what an amazing process for the produce.
Sunday morning we were up and looking to score a feed (thumbnail hints as to how it went)
Back to self employment. As far as my dream goes, in my mind I want to go skim, surf, spear, run my brand and shoot content all day.
The complications arise when you actually have to make a few bucks from these things because life is expensive. One thing I’ve always had from the start is product to sell and I’m always looking to expand this. Selling is hard but when it’s your own product but boy, it’s satisfying. Anytime someone wants to fork out their hard earned cash on something I made makes the pursuit of the dream worth it!
Producing content is much harder than selling product as it requires far more of my time invested, for much less income. If I wasn’t so passionate about it, I wouldn’t be doing it. For some reason I love it!
Oh and on a sales orientated pitch you can sign up to my mailing list here.
About 95% of what I do I find quite fulfilling. My work is certainly that, my hobbies (which I’m trying to make into work) are fulfilling and the people I spend time with add to all this.
I don’t buy into the fact that we all need to go to uni and have boring careers all our lives. The race to “get ahead” when no one knows what they’re getting ahead of.
As a country our mental health statistics are shocking and you only have to look around to see how our physical health is looking. Divorce is what… 50% or so?
Basically what I’m getting at is fulfillment is what makes me tick. Am I a great example? Probably not. Do I reaaaaally enjoy what I do and want to do it more? Yes! Below is an example
I will target a group here for an example but if you’re into your 30’s and doing nothing but working, eating pies and drinking every weekend away…. You. Need. To. Go. Find. Fulfillment.
Put a list together of all those things you’ve always wanted to do. You need to get your own physical and mental wellbeing into a good place where you want to get up. Your social circle needs to add to this. Your partner, if you have one, needs to encourage this. YOU need to.
If you don’t you’ll be let wondering what could’ve been and no one wants that.
Anyway, I’m off to the Far North in a few hours and if you’re looking to sign up to a mailing list then sign up to mine here.
Sunday the 29th of October was my first night out in the wild. By out in the wild I mean not living in a conventional house.
The van build has gone pretty well for a first attempt and it’s turning into one of those “shoulda done it years ago things”. As far as what I’ve learnt so far is that there’s no real drawbacks. There’s some mild inconveniences, but nothing I would consider a drawback. I’m writing this parked up by the Omaha Boat Ramp in fact.
Last Saturday was a great day. I got back out in the water after a injury and moving stint! No solid fish but was a cracker of a day!
Sunday we awoke by the water and set about competing with each other
So far the van is warm, dry and has been more rewarding than I thought it would be. I’m going to be uploading some New Zealand specific videos on the campervan/ tiny home/ mobile living scene regarding showering, biodegradable soaps and chemicals, general living and a full van build (when it’s actually finished).
