Travel Hackers On Nightline

Last month, my wife and I attended a fantastic seminar on reward travel.  The focus was on the best ways to earn and spend frequent flier miles, hotel points, and anything that allows you to travel for free. It was held in Chicago and it was extremely interesting and a ton of fun.

During the event, a crew from ABC's Nightline was filming for a piece that airs tonight. I am not featured in it, but you might catch a glimpse of me here or there. Nevertheless, this might open your eyes to this world of extreme travel rewards enthusiasts that most people don't know exist.

The segment aired November 22, 2011, here is the link.

Steele On The Radio

On Saturday, November 26, I was a guest on the Consumer Talk program hosted by Michael Finney, which airs on News Talk 810 in San Francisco.

I am scheduled to be on a segment that begins at approximately 5:00 PM Pacific time, 6 PM Mountain, and 8 PM  on the east coast.

You can listen live or download the podcast.

I will be discussing an article I wrote recently for Money Talks News, 5 Reasons Not to Apply for a Department Store Credit Card.

This should be fun!

Steele On Television

Another great thing about working for Stacy Johnson is the opportunity to appear on his television reports that are syndicated and broadcast on local news reports around the country on all the stations seen on the map above. In this clip, I am giving advice on how to travel for free over the holidays using frequent flier miles. 

Give me an Emmy!

Steele On Business Insider

One of the great things about writing for some amazing sites, such as Money Talks News, is that my work is constantly being picked up by other outstanding sites, such as Business Insider. In fact, they seemed to have picked up five of my articles in the last two weeks alone.

Steele Is Now A Full Time Freelancer

Free: Not obligated to work for any one company. No longer needing to show up and put in "face time" in a cubicle during set hours for no reason.

Lance: If the pen is mightier than the sword, the blog beats them both.

This marks the first week of my full time career as a freelance writer. I have lined up my clients, figured out my benefits, and even rented out some space in a real office building. My writing career is indeed taking off as I focus on travel, credit cards, and other aspects of personal finance.

On a personal note, this is really the fulfillment of a life long dream. I come from a family of people who generally own their own business or practice of some sort. Working for others has never been a great fit for me, and being my own boss gives me limitless possibilities for travel, recreation, and unscheduled slacking off. Or so it would seem as find myself working at 5 AM this morning.
