My guest today is a young man named Tucker Ballister.
Last week, I was cruising around the internet and I came across Tucker’s website. Tucker is the owner and founder of The Backpack Guide. He writes and publishes really excellent articles all about different backpacking gear such as packs, tents, water bottles, filtration systems and more.
In speaking to Tucker, it’s very obvious how much passion he has for backpacking, and how much he enjoys what he does. In our conversation, we get into how hiking has played such a huge role in his life and it is inspiring to come across someone who has such a passion and sense of purpose behind what they do.
Tucker is living the dream. He’s doing what he loves and finding a way to get paid for it.
Let’s jump into the interview. Please help me welcome, Tucker Ballister.
In this episode we talk about…
- How to build an income off of something you love
- People falling off of ledges taking selfies
- How Tucker got hooked up with brands and products for his site
- Why Tucker isn’t concerned with reaching millions of people and why that has helped him succeed.
