CHRIS ‘TARZAN’ CLEMENS
No, my mom did not give me the middle name Tarzan, I got it on the Appalachian Trail. I grew up in rural Indiana, was employee of the month at McDonald’s in 2001, graduated with a business degree, was the youngest President of the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara, and tried to be a successful ‘young professional’. In 2012 I quit my job, hiked the Appalachian Trail, decided I didn’t want to go back to being ‘normal’, moved into my car, built a freelance marketing income, and set out in 2015 to travel the world as a homeless digital nomad.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
– Mark Twain
