What You Can Learn Discover  Find Explore Share 


We want to help you discover your best life.

For us we needed away to make money that didn’t take up all our time.

Online business not only gave us an opportunity to make a living It allowed us to find a way to really make a change in the world.

We offer the same basic training that gave us our foundation then offer insight and personal development for anyone brave enough to challenge what the rest of their life will look like.

Most frequent questions and answers

We “Affiliate Market” products we truly believe help people achieve a better life.

That means we recommend products that we believe provide value or a relevant to the interests of our subscribers.

The links are personalised to us. If someone clicks on them and makes a purchase then we get a commission. i.e. I just brought one of these so we could get dynamic footage and I love it, I would highly recommend it:

We love this as we are not tied to a single product, We don’t have to “sell” anything.

People find our posts because they are  searching for advice and guidance.

Any thing from:

“What’s a good gift for someone outdoorsy”

We might have a post like Top 10 gifts for outdoor Dads and recommend products like this

(trust me these are a life saver)


“How do I change my life”

That might take them to one of our pages with video explaining why we do what we do:

Either way we provide the advice and guidance that’s within our knowledge and experience.

If we feel we that there’s a product or service that’s truly relevant we will recommend it.

Not all of our links are “Affiliate links”, sometimes we might link to another website that provides value. It is far more important for us to provide value and grow our community and trust.

Think about it. Are you more likely to come back if we send you to a site that answered your question or tried to push a useless irrelevant product on you.

For some people what we offer will be relevant for others it won’t. The more relevance and value our content and recommendations have the more our reputation and community grows, for this reason we will never recommend a bad product, pressure or lie to “sell” something. 

In short we think developing your own online business is the best way to gain time, financial and geographical freedom.  

You can then spend your life how you see fit. That could be traveling, being there for your friends and family, really giving to your community or just living the high life. 

For us we missed being outdoors and wanted more time as a family. 

This website started purely as resource for families, like us who wanted to make the most out of there weekends and were looking for ways to spend time outdoors as families. 

We used our experience running outdoor centres to put together session plans and risk assessments so families could feel confident on different adventures. 

However we struggled to create content around normal 9-5 jobs and raising a young family. We realised that the issue, both we and our subscribers had, was not willingness or knowledge around getting outdoors. It was having the time, money and geographical freedom to do it.

We then got serious around trying to create that freedom for ourselves by developing to provide an income.

We also changed our focus to help others who wanted to build that freedom.

But we had no idea how to start or why some websites were successful and others weren’t.

One of our Primary affiliate products is SFM. This was the training provider we used to learn the skills we were lacking when we started. It’s step by step training about how to build a business online. As much as you here about people becoming overnight millionaires this isn’t really the case unless you have thousands to invest.

When you subscribe to the mailing list, the first thing we send you is a free four part online training from SFM. This gives you a broad view of how different online business models work and how you might scale depending on your time budget and commitment.

Simply put, SFM can do it far better. The trainers are all successful experts in there fields and we’re still figuring things out.

SFM have resources that are essential like access to specific of training videos like “how to track what’s working”. 24/7 tech support for when your website doesn’t work, webinars led by some of the best experts. 

Also your business will be an extension of yourself.

You might want to design a type of bike or jacket and sell it though amazon or your own online store. 

You might want to provide online counseling.

You may have a traditional business that you want to market or even transition online.

You may want to develop a web based training series on a specific skill you have like gardening, yoga or photography.

Any online business is like having a shop in the desert, It can be the most amazing shop in the world: beautifully designed, the most amazing products and amazing service. It doesn’t matter no one knows it’s there. There’s some simple ways of getting people there but one simple mistake can mean the difference between a business that essentially runs it’s self and a business that just sits on a server.

These will require different skills and resources that Keri and I couldn’t even begin to provide enough value on.

One of the other things we like is that SFM isn’t focused on making loads of money. It’s in keeping with our own values that you should be working towards making everyday count. If your everyday is best spent building a business then that’s fine. If your everyday is about having enough financial freedom to spend time with family then it will teach you how to automate your business. If you feel like you have a higher calling and want to make a change in the world then there’s the resources to really get clarity in on what that vision is and the most effective and personally aligned way of doing it.

Our business is predominantly around guiding people to this solution and finding out if it’s right for them by sharing our experience and providing guidance from the perspective of people who are in the trenches with you.

Absolutely not. Our mission is to help people take a life of alignment. Alignment with their values, alignment with the passions. 

As long as you are (Or working towards being) excited by each day and you will look back on your life knowing you have achieved what you set out to then we fully support you. 

If you’ve found an employer that gives you that and you just want to work on your personal development then welcome.

If you have your own more traditional business that you love and are passionate about then perhaps you will find resources that will help you promote it or bring it more inline with your values or even give you more freedom.

We will still be providing lot’s of lifestyle resources so if your looking for activities or products then it’s worth popping in every so often.

That’s the beauty of a website it costs us very little to run so you can use it however you see fit.
