The Write to Roam TV: Episode 1

No, it’s definitely not a real TV show. Just a good excuse for me to get away from my desk once a day or so, get down to the kitchen, and cook a good meal. One part Random Show, one part Wine About It, with a little Ask Gary Vee mixed in, this is me standing in front of the camera cooking, and talking about some of the more interesting ideas, articles, and resources I’ve come across throughout the day.

Links to everything can be found below. Some are affiliate Amazon links, which definitely help to keep this ship afloat. If you’re thinking of buying any of the books I mention (and I won’t mention them unless I’d truly recommend them) it’d mean a lot if you’d do it by clicking the links here.


  • Check out Wine About It, The Random Show, and Ask Gary Vee, next time you’re bored. You won’t regret it.
  • If you’re a note-taking freak like me, check out the 180-Artbook from Canson. Comes in a few sizes, and I carry the 3.5″ x 5.5″ for day-to-day notes, and keep a 5.5″ x 8.5″ for my travel journal.
  • Tim Ferriss’ The 4-Hour Workweek has been a heavy influence on my life, and you’ll hear his stuff referenced in much of what I talk or write about.
  • You can travel for free, or very close to free by making use of, Trusted House Sitters, or Worldwide Opportunities for Organic Farmers (WWOOF).
  • Square Appointments is a cool tool for setting up bookable services which I’ll be testing over the course of the next few weeks.
  • Charity competition video
  • Skype Subscriptions has been absolutely vital for meeting with clients, team members, and keeping in touch with folks back home.
  • Simpleology My go-to day-planning tool for the last two years and without a doubt the most important tool in learning to prioritize my activity for the day.
  • I mentioned a shocking video that chronicled the inhumane slaughter of beef cattle, however I won’t link to it here. I’m serious when I say that that video unnerved me to my core, and I don’t want it around the rest of my content. If you want a look at some of the problems we face with our modern food system, go watch Food Inc (also available on NetFlix), then remember you vote on this issue three times a day with every meal you buy.
  • Here is one of my favorite Alton Brown cookbooks
