Living in an RV, and running events for Hackers with Taylor Banks

Living in an RV, and running events for Hackers with Taylor Banks

July 18, 2019

Taylor is a fascinating guy. He’s a hacker who used his skills to become a well-paid consultant, helping governments and companies protect their systems. He’s a regular at Def con, which is an annual conference in Vegas for hackers everywhere. I’ve personally been and it’s an amazing event and at a huge scale. Even more interesting is that the conference is cash only and no pre-registration…. so they have no idea about how many people will turn up. Taylor partnered with Defcon to run local meetups and other events relating to security and Infosec, which we discuss in detail.

What is really interesting about Taylor is that he runs his business empire from an RV (recreational Vehicle) and he travels full time across the US with his wife!

Running residential retreats for entrepreneurs across the world with Chris Reynolds

Running residential retreats for entrepreneurs across the world with Chris Reynolds

July 11, 2019

Chris ran charity projects in Costa Rica, Peru, and Africa where he got a taste for running live events. This led him to run ‘The Entrepreneur House’, a productivity-focused residential retreat in multiple cities including Barcelona and Chiang Mai. Chris started off running his events over two months which is a pretty herculean feat!... but has now reduced it down to 10 days.

Chris travels full time with his girlfriend although he likes to stay in one place for several months at a time and told me the term ‘slowmad’ which I hadn’t heard before to describe this lifestyle.

Chris is a Podcasting machine and he’s produced close to 400 podcast episodes that I can find! Podcasting is a major sales funnel for his events but we discussed how this is a long term proposition and you need to really enjoy it. The second major sales funnel is posting in forms and groups that Chris is a part of. Chris shares his content widely on social media (Reddit, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and this also helps with attendees but no one platform worked especially well for him.

Along with the events, Chris runs productivity coaching and the podcast also helps him get new clients for this.

In terms of the logistics of the events, Chris makes it a super casual format with fixed sessions then free time in between and the attendees often organize trips, etc by themselves. Chris gets involved to make sure everyone is having a good time and to keep the group dynamic good, although with the kind of people he attracts it’s always a friendly crowd.
