Hello and welcome! My name is Sam Priestley and I am a lifestyle entrepreneur.
I spend my time trying to build businesses that I find fun and interesting while making enough money to live the life I want.
I have spent the past couple of weeks combing through 178 brilliant entrepreneurship grant applications. Trying to choose just three to award a $1,000 no-strings-attached grant to grow or start their business. It has been really tough and I really want to thank...read more

Applications for all entrepreneurship grants have now closed. Congratulations to all the winners! Between March 2017 and March 2018 I awarded 12 entrepreneurship grants of $1,000 each to help budding business owners launch or grow their dream. This page is the...read more
I have been selling online through an Amazon FBA business since 2013, but I haven't really spoken about it much on this blog. I hesitate because to a reader I think it sounds too easy. There are a lot of the articles written about Amazon FBA and they too often just...read more
Well, the most obvious con of being a digital nomad is having to call yourself a digital nomad... can someone please come up with a less nerdy sounding name?! A digital nomad is someone who is officially homeless. They roam around the world staying in hostels, hotels,...read more
