  1. A great year for Conversion XL. You guys are the best. Keep up tge good work.

  2. Hey Peep, really nice articles, especially on your beliefs. I also traveled after my business gave me a bit of location independence, and this was a huge eye opener for me. As you wrote you were one in Central America, I now wonder if I may have seen you in Costa Rica :D

    Important question — how do you handle the kids with all the travelling you do? My wife and I want to have kids soon, so I’m wondering what’s the best approach.

    Lots of love from Taiwan!
