Escape From the Rat Race

By Empowering Yourself with the EpicEscape CourseTM

Rat Race Escape Course

Quitting a job to travel takes guts. It isn’t easy. But if you’re willing to do what other people won’t, you can live how other people can’t.

Want to Quit a Job to Travel?

If you’re happy with your current job and life setup, no need to continue.

If any of these sound familiar, consider reading on:

  • No matter how hard you work there’s never enough time or money.
  • You’re spending valuable years making someone else a fortune.
  • You crave more adventure and life experience.
  • You deserve friendships and romances that are deeper and more fulfilling.
  • You want to reinvent yourself.

Independent travel won’t solve all your problems, but it does provide a catalyst for growth, a way to escape the current environment and start over.

The neuroscience is clear: our environment shapes and influences our personal reality every day.

In many ways, we’re designed to keep doing the same things over and over, which means we get the same results (e.g., unable to escape the Rat Race to travel).

Breaking the loop with willpower alone is extremely difficult. Sometimes the best way forward is to firebomb the current environment, reboot, and rebuild.

How to Escape

Two years in the making, the EpicEscape Course leverages knowledge from neuroscientists, psychologists, and successful digital nomads to help you succeed in creating location independence.

I made a lot of mistakes and spent too much money while trying to quit my job to travel. Like everyone, I incorrectly thought I had to be wealthy or at least in business for myself before starting out. I learned the myth isn’t true.

After 15 years as a digital nomad, I created this course to weaponize my experience and help anyone looking to escape from the Rat Race to live on their own terms. Walking out of IBM forever was one of the best feelings of my life.

In no way am I becoming wealthy by selling this course. In fact, breaking even will take a long time. This isn’t how I fund my travels. But after experiencing how much location independence has changed my life for the better, I want to share it with others. I want my legacy to be all the people I helped escape the corporate world to pursue their dreams.

Greg Rodgers journal


Yes, you need money to live and travel. But I guarantee money isn’t what’s stopping you — it’s a primitive, biological fear of leaving stability and going into the unknown.

Time and Money

Choosing inexpensive places to live, work, and travel can lower daily costs to less than you spend at home. This isn’t the same as vacation where money gets spent freely.

Love and Loneliness

You’ll probably experience both on the road at some point. But you’ll rarely be alone. Whether shy and introverted or not, travelers bond quickly while on the road.

Personal Safety

Traveling the world isn’t as dangerous as we’re led to believe. As for injuries, healthcare in many other countries is often better and more affordable than in the U.S.

Life Experience

Solo travel is proven to build resilience, self efficacy, and self reliance. The skills you learn on the road carry over into all areas of life.


Many unhappy corporate employees say they plan to travel more after retiring in their “golden years.” Why not spread the enjoyment of retirement throughout life?

Escaping to Travel

How Does the Included Coaching Work?

Whenever you’re ready, we schedule a 20-minute block to chat. We can talk before, during, or after you have completed the EpicEscape Course — up to you!

I don’t end productive conversations. If we go over the time allotment, not a big deal.

Video is completely optional, depending on your whim and our quality of connection. We can use WhatsApp, Zoom, Signal, or Skype.

Topics range from health and safety concerns to how much money I needed to escape. Our conversation will be informal and friendly, so ask whatever you like!

Why Did You Create This?

I have earned a living since 2007 as a travel writer and photographer. I didn't earn my escape money by selling online products. In fact, from an hourly perspective, I took quite a loss creating EpicEscape. I'm OK with that.

After experiencing such joy and life transformation through independent travel, I knew I had to help others do the same. Before traveling, I was an introverted, uncultured, unhappy cubicle dweller. I didn't visit my first foreign country until age 30. Now, the positive effects of growing myself and meeting new people have spread throughout all areas of my life.

Happier people make the world a better place -- and that is what I want.
