TRS 009: How to Build a Business & Travel The World for Free with Travis Sherry

Today on the podcast I am super pumped to be speaking with Travis Sherry the founder of Extra Pack of Peanuts, a blog and podcast that teaches you how to travel more while spending less. Since starting the Extra Pack of Peanuts podcast in 2013 it has gone on to have millions of downloads and become one of the top travel podcasts on iTunes. Travis is also the founder of Location Indie, an online community for location independent entrepreneurs, and The Paradise Pack, an annual bundle sale of the top travel and business courses.

This was seriously one of the most information packed interviews to date. We talked about how Travis started Extra Pack of Peanuts and how he went from a struggling blogger to a 6 figure earner in just a couple of years and we also talked about some of the trials that many online entrepreneurs experience but few talk about. We also dove into Travis’ huge bank of knowledge when it comes to travel miles. You’ll learn all about how they work, how to start earning miles and fly for free, and a list of some of the best credit cards to start with.
