Making the World More Awesome


My name is Travis Hellstrom and I’m the creator and writer here. I currently live in Vermont (previously in Mongolia), I’m a proud former Peace Corps Volunteer, an international consultant and an aspiring humanitarian.

Here I write about living simply, creating a life and work you love, advancing humanity, changing the world and sometimes cream soda.
