    How It All Began:

    My name is Walt Goodridge. On Feb 9, 2006, I sent the following email to a few friends, customers and clients

    hi All,

    As you may have surmised, and as was hinted at in several of my recent Friday Life Rhymes (specifically #437 entitled Freedom Song), something's been brewing in "Walt World" for the past few months.

    Ever since leaving corporate America in the fall of 1995, I've been executing a plan to create the lifestyle of a modern, minimalist, nomadic, passionpreneur based on a passive-residual income stream!

    Now that I've cut all the tethers and structured a turnkey, self-sustaining, internet-based business that doesn't require my physical presence in any one location......

    (drum roll, please)

    ...I've bought a one way ticket to the island of Saipan in the South Pacific!

    So amid sea, sand and sun I'll be living my dream in a clime that resonates with who I wish to be.

    Since this is simply the first step in a journey of a thousand smiles, I didn't want to make a big deal about it until I got there and surveyed the lay of the land. But, I wanted to tell a few friends and contacts who I felt deserve a little advanced notice...

    You can still reach me at and I'll set up a Skype account and MSN Messenger for IMs for anyone who'd like to keep in touch, and share the experience!


    p.s. I leave next Wed Feb 15 for Las Vegas, and then to Japan--my first stop on the way to Saipan! If you know of anyone there in Tokyo I might call who might be kind enough to show me around, please let me know. And in case you didn't receive Life Rhyme #437, here it is again... (read more at the Life Rhyme Archives)

    Freedom Song

    One day you'll think about me:
    Haven't seen him in a while
    You'll make a note to find me
    or a number you can dial

    One day you'll ask about me:
    Where on earth can he be found?
    And learn at last I've set my sail
    where sun and sea abound

    One day you'll say about me:
    Goes the nomad on his way
    To live the life's adventure
    that he said he would some day

    One day you'll write about me:
    There's the man who lived his dream
    Cut loose the oars and left the boat
    to swim a different stream

    And then one day amid the noise
    and hustle of the throng
    You'll hear a tune first faintly
    that's been playing all along

    You'll know the singer instantly
    you'll recognize my voice
    A heart-felt freedom song
    of life lived not by chance but choice...

    And so began my escape from America.
