Best of + Personal Update

Photo by Steve Evans has been live for 4 months and my deepest gratitude goes out to everyone who’s graced me with your readership and amazing support. I love you guys, seriously.

I wanted to personally thank all of you for your insights and feedback in your comments. Thank you for your kind emails. Thank you for helping me realize my dream of contributing to the personal development field.

This is a quick announcement post. Part announcement and part love letter to my readers. :)

A Journey to India

In a few hours. I will be leaving for a 3 months adventure to India. It’s my attempt to test out the concept of mini-retirements, introduced by Tim Ferriss. I view it as a spiritual and creative sabbatical, and I can’t wait.  I am a little nervous though. Perhaps, it is my ego afraid of the unknowns in the weeks to come.

If you’re interested, you can follow my travel blog here. I will do my best to document everything of interest, including hotels, routes, sights and tips. Please let me know if you have any must visit places in India, in the comments.

Over the past week, I’ve written a personal guest post for Darren of ProBlogger, and have been featured in a couple interviews. I’ve linked them here if you’re interested.

  1. Hi Tina – have a wonderful time. I’m looking forward to hearing how it goes. You’re the first person I know of who’s trying a mini retirement after reading the four hour work week. And if it goes well, I bet you’ll inspire others to do the same.

  2. Congrats Tina. Have a great time in India! :)


  3. Hi Tina,
    I really appreciate the emails that you sent me with your help. I will definitely follow your adventure in India. Be good and take care.


  4. Congratulations! I’m happy for you. My husband and I spent 13 months in Europe when I was in my mid-twenties. We spent our weekends and long vacations traveling around, and at the end we came back to the U.S. the long way, via Egypt, East Africa, India, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand. We still have wonderful memories of that time and are so glad we did it. Good for you!

    Hi.. am from India… been in US for 3 years now.
    Where exactly are you going to be during your visit to India… ? Have a cup of chai for me please… missing home :))
    and oh if I can suggest one place to visit… put jaislmer on your list !

  6. What a great opportunity–have a fun time!

  7. Neat concept! Reminds me of “Holiday” with Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn. Enjoy.


  8. Tina,

    Have a great trip. I’ve only just found your blog a few days ago and have been enjoying your posts.

    Passionately fulfill your purpose.

  9. Hey Tina, welcome to India!
    You are coming to a beautiful country!! Hope you will enjoy a lot.
    The great places in India are Keral, Goa, Rajastan and many more… I assume you have the whole trip plan now and any travel agent might have suggested the spots.

    One thing to enjoy India trip: Forget about the formalities and be true Indian ;-)

  10. Hi, Tina! I read EVERY one of your posts because I know that they will be thoughtful, interesting, and extremely helpful to my life. So thank YOU for all that you pour into this site and your readers.

  11. Hi Tina,

    I have learnt many things from your blog and all articles are very interesting to read.

    Have a nice journey!

  12. Dan

    Way to go, Tina! Have an incredible journey, and congratulations on taking the mini-retirement plunge!

  13. Best of luck Tina! I look forward to tracking your adventures in India. I would love to go there someday :)

    Mini-retirement – I love it! I think that takes personal development to a whole new level! Have a great time.

    Hey Tina,
    India is intense! But if you can handle India, you can do any country on earth. = )

    As you progress through your holiday… the temperatures are going to get hot. Most places having no A/C makes this a problem. I guess this is just a heads up.

    Make effort to follow Indian traditions. Women and men don’t touch in public and don’t mix openly. Tina, also its vice to cover up as much as you can, like Indian women.

    Some parts of your journey are going to be awesome. Others are going to be giddy, frustrating and sometimes a third world experience.

    I am sure being into P.D., you will come away with great and positive perspectives and experience from this trip.

    Good Luck!

    Tina – I liked your article on problogger. It’s thoughtful and precise. I agree with your point on goals. When folks ask me how to blog, I tell them to first figure out their purpose. I also liked your point on massive action. As Robbins would say, nature leads by example taking massive action in the form of many seeds to start a single tree.

  19. I loved your article on increasing subscribers! Have a wonderful time!

    The site is phenomenal. I check it from time to time and am surprised to hear that it has only been live for 4 months. The breadth of it led me to believe that I had been missing out on it for quite some time and I was excited to discover it.

  21. SD

    Good luck in your new journey!!!

  22. Much love and blessing to you as you journey on the adventure that is life. Love, lisa

  23. i spotted on your blog, and i find it so helpful.

    goodluck on your trip with adam.

  24. i really envy you in the sense you have achieved what many find it impossible.

    Thanks for giving me your friendship and as your friend in Singapore, I will be sending you my blessings and praying for your safety.

    enjoy your trip and tell us more about your adventure =)
