Monocle Coast aspires to be your go-to destination for beach travel and living. This site is a quickly-growing collective of entrepreneurs and explorers from across the world. If you’re looking to explore the world’s beaches [and maybe even find one call one home?!], you’ve come to the right place. Here, we chat about tried and tested techniques that help the everyday nine-to-fiver leave the workforce for a life of travel… specifically beach travel. We offer an ever-growing series on the best beaches around the world for both short-term vacation /and/ long-term relocation.

If you…

  • Hop in the car every morning to fight the bumper-to-bumper commute to the office and find yourself spending more time than not fighting the urge to just keep driving
  • Are restless and feel isolated at work – wishing more people in your life understood your desire to just escape it all
  • Have an incurable case of wanderlust

This is the site for you.

Monocle Coast found its beginning probably in the same way you found this page – a longing to escape the 9-5 and live the freedom lifestyle.

Picture this…

  • Waking up every morning to the sound of waves crashing against the shore
  • Working for yourself – building something that is yours
  • Shredding that feeling of longing for something more once and for all.

I know what you’re thinking – you can’t really leave the workforce and be a professional beach bum… Right?


Thanks to the wonderful invent of the internet – you can now live anywhere and still be connected. And that’s all you need – connection. With wi-fi at your fingertips, it’s never been easier to start your freedom journey.

And we’re here to help guide you through every step from that first spark of an idea to landing your dream life on the sandy shores of your favorite coastline.

How did I get here?

I’ve always been drawn to unconventional careers. From cruise ships to theme parks, I’ve been exceptionally lucky in the roles I’ve played and experience I’ve gained. But no matter how incredible a position was, there was always a small voice in my mind that spoke words of independence, freedom, and nomadic inclinations. Even when I called this place home!

Simply put – no matter where I was or what I was doing, that voice told me I was never whole. It led me to believe that there was something missing from my life, no matter how grand things looked on paper (or in photo). The longer the voice stayed, the louder it got.

Cue the tiny violins

In 2013, it finally became too loud to ignore. Why should I have to live out my life just going through the motions? Why should I have to spend the only life I have earning someone else’s company a bigger profit? It was time for a change – and a big one at that.

That’s when I found direct sales. As an independent consultant in direct sales, I began to find the lifestyle of which I dreamed. I was able to work my own hours, build my own business, and earn the funds I needed to take my dream to the next level here on Monocle Coast. It was in that role as an independent consultant that my eyes really opened to the work-from-home lifestyle.

But I wanted something grander than just a home studio… I wanted a home studio with a view. And I wanted others to have one, too. It was time to create something for my fellow nomads… I wanted to teach those of us that are inexplicably drawn to the coast that the life we dream of can be our reality.
