30 Cool Things For Successful Entrepreneurs To Do

By:     Topics: Get Inspired     More posts about:

The best bit about being a successful Internet Entrepreneur is the wonderful Internet lifestyle and freedom that goes with it. You set your own hours for working, vacation when you want and if you wish, work from anywhere you can get an Internet connection. Many internet entrepreneurs travel for as much as 6 months at a time – just logging in for an hour or two every day or so to keep on top of things. (count their earnings!)

Some of these experiences are relatively in expensive – getting there will not be. Check out the list below for some possibilities – which of these adventures inspires you? Or perhaps we are missing some adventures you would like to recommend?

    Amazing list! Ill have to give a few of these ago when I generate the funds!

    Not sure about the Baja Racing though, not with all this swine flu business going about! Maybe when it’s died out like everything else!

  3. Barry Dunlop says:

    And I am of to Necker Island in 2 weeks!! πŸ˜‰

  4. Wayne Liew says:

    Or heli-skiing in New Zealand, that has to be amazing!

  18. Nikolai says:

    Some really rad stuff here! I personally would love to do the HALO skydive – must be such an awesome experience πŸ™‚

  19. Danny Cooper says:

    really cool list btw!

  21. Yanik Silver says:

    Nice job putting together a list with stuff I even have not done yet πŸ˜‰

    Cage diving with Crocs. Might have to add to my South Africa trip for next year. Great ideas you put here to inspire some wild entrepreneurs to add to their Life lists.


    • Michael says:

      Hey Yanik,

      Thanks, glad you enjoyed the list. Haha… no problem, you inspire most of us with your wild Internet lifestyle.


  22. Great list and really beautiful pictures. Thank you for sharing that with us Michael.

  23. Mike CJ says:

    Great list Michael. There’s a strange error in the text not matching the pictures though, on the Baja driving and the Gumball Rally.

    I was quite chuffed to see that I’ve already done ten of those! Benefit of being a “Not young” entrepreneur I guess!

    Virgin Galactic is my next objective.

    • Michael says:

      Thanks for spotting that Mike πŸ™‚ Glad you have been able to do 10 of those, not many people have even done any. Let us know how Space was πŸ˜‰

  24. Caden Grant says:

    Wow those all look like fun. Wish I could do those!

  25. I was watching videos of the gumball rally yesterday!

    I didn’t think this list was going to be very good, sorry! But one look at it and I have to say I want to do every single thing on there!

  26. TradeProfits says:

    Reading this list is a good way to start the day πŸ™‚ Now I know some of the upcomming events I the following years.

  27. Nice list. Dont forget the 8th wonder of the world in Kenya the wilderbeest migration. An experience of a lifetime

  28. Harish | Blogging Kid says:

    AW ! Never done even one of those. So sad of me Hope to do some of those πŸ™‚

  29. World Headlines says:

    I can do many of those on the profits I make, the ones like private island and gumball I can’t without sinking everything I have into it lol. The private island looks better than the gumball one though.

  30. markdomingo says:

    looking forward to be go to that places! hope my blog can make a living

  31. Anne Holland says:

    Blech! Wish this was named things for a “male” entrepreneur to do… because I for one would not want to do any of them. Yanik’s a great guy, he’s just really a Guy. Maybe I need to post a blog about the things a female entrepreneur gets to do. Like buying houses. And shoes. And that carpenter to do stuff my husband will put off for ages. And planting my new fruit tree orchard. And donating computers and Internet access to orphanages. And helping our favorite rural church build a new roof. etc etc. I do not want to go near a fast car/plane/bungee/boat..etc ever. If only Yanik had mentioned Nordstroms shoe department!

  32. Ryan Adami says:

    Awesome list! You should submit this to the travel channel, and have them foot the bill. I leave the show theme and pitch up to you πŸ™‚

  33. Stuart Wooster says:

    I agree with Anne, there are many other things in the world I would do, but that is the beauty of each person being different.

    I know I would seek a home abroad and some creature comforts (such as the Β£2500 rocking chair I saw Saturday in Libertys, London) before I spent on the above, if any at all.

  34. Hopefully I’ll be successful enough to be able to take all those trips. I’m just starting to plan my first trip out of the country- maybe I’ll try the Costa Rica zipline…

  35. SEO Consultant says:

    Really cool things we can do if I have extra money! Just wonder how you compile this comprehensive list, is a lot of efforts!

  36. I have got to say you have the best list posts on the internet I have ever read. All of these are awesome and I hope I get to do just half of them. My favorites would have to be Pebble Beach, Zero G flight and the zip line sounds pretty cool as well. Thanks

  37. Espree Devora says:

    This makes me want to travel again and not sit in front of my computer.

  38. Helps a great deal in working on a concrete plan.

  39. Simon | Teenius says:

    If anyone here has ever done duneboarding, I hate you. I want to try it sooooo bad…. πŸ˜€ I love snowboarding, but duneboarding just looks like something else :O

  40. Fazal Mayar says:

    those are cool things but I like sports more then travelling or stuff like this. I would go to lots of hockey games if I had the money I dreamed of.
