Johny Ward, owner of the travel blog onestep4ward, got the best of both worlds. He gets the opportunity to go on epic adventures and make $ 1 million at the same time.

But how exactly did a man who comes from a poor Irish family accomplish what most of us can only hope for?

According to the 31-year-old businessman, he held several jobs including signing up for medical experiments in the past. In 2009, Ward landed a sales job in Australia that paid him $20,000 a month. While his job was secure and high-paying, Ward decided to quit his job after six months.

“I felt like it wasn’t fulfilling in any way, and I wasn’t free, having to ask for permission for take time off — and I don’t do well with authority,” he told Business Insider.

Realizing that he only had one life to live, Ward decided to create a travel blog despite having little tech experience. The blog step4ward was transformed into a media company called step4wardmedia as soon as it began generating revenue.

Over the past three years, Ward has visited more than 152 countries while earning $1,000 a day on the average. He works with four other people virtually for a few hours a week despite his busy travel schedule. And if you’re still not insanely envious of this guy, well, he even managed to score a gorgeous flight attendant girlfriend.

“Not having had much growing up, I’m careful with money. I have anxiety about not being broke again.”
