We’re Alejo and Andrea, and we’ve been traveling full-time and living life to the fullest for the past five years (since we were 26 and 24). But aside from sailing the world, kitesurfing paradisiac locations and scuba diving remote reefs, we also like to work hard as digital entrepreneurs and YouTubers because we have some BIG DREAMS for the future. (Read our story…)
If you’re here, you probably want to know how we’re able to live like this, the details of what we do, and the good and bad about our lifestyle. And we’re going to share all that and more with you – our journey, what we’ve learned, and what we would do if we had to start all over again.
Here’s the truth though, although enjoy helping you get one step closer to the life you dream about, we’re also doing this because it helps us get one step closer to our personal goals of growth and development. It’s a win-win!
We openly and honestly share with you what has worked for us to get to the place we are now. By identifying the core areas of life, we can develop and work on a strategy that keeps a balance between our body, mind, and soul, helping us achieve an extraordinary life.

We can’t build the life of our dreams if we don’t set a solid structure of it first. At the very base of the triangle of life is our health, our beliefs and our emotions, and these need as much work and development (if not more) as our business or career. Ever heard the saying “money doesn’t buy you happiness”? It’s true and that’s because money can’t buy us mental or physical health, it can’t buy us positive thoughts or a determined mindset, and it sure can’t buy us fulfilling emotions. This is all work that we have to put in by ourselves, every single day.
It’s so easy to take our mental and physical health for granted, when in reality not prioritizing our health and well-being can be stop us from achieving our daily goals. Our body is the boat that carries us where we need to go, and our mind is the power that drives us to become the best version of ourselves.
It’s funny how the scariest day of our lives was also the best day of our lives: the day we both left our 9-5 jobs. We truly had no idea how much this decision was going to impact our lives forever, but it did, and we wouldn’t be here had we not taken that leap of faith in our selves and in our dreams.
We were working non-fulfilling jobs and for a few weeks (which seemed like eternity), living on auto-pilot. We were desperate for a change. After weeks of research, audiobooks, courses, and podcasts, we decided to build an online business that generated income no matter where we were and when we were working on it. MOKAI, our e-commerce business, gave us the freedom we desired to have a real work-life balance, a business that we’re passionate about, and one that challenged our professional growth in every way.
We think that with the right type of guidance and a good training program, you too can start a business that gives you the time and freedom you desire. Private labeling or selling physical products on Amazon has the potential of becoming an eight-figure business that can become a passive income stream.
Whether you dream of traveling the world, living on an RV or living on a sailboat, there will probably NEVER BE A PERFECT MOMENT to make your dream happen, sometimes you just have to risk it.
We had never owned a boat before, we didn’t have any sailing experience, and we didn’t have the money to purchase our dream catamaran. Needless to say, it was a challenge to learn how to operate a 42ft vessel, find insurance for two inexperienced operators, and get $300,000 when we didn’t even have half of it.
Here’s the thing… You don’t have to wait until you’re 65, retired, and have millions in the bank to do what you love and dream about! And no matter how big a dream may seem, you can achieve it with hard work, perseverance, and dedication.
On our guide for sailboat buyers we share all the details about our experience and how we overcame all the obstacles to get to where we are.
By giving back, we’re able to improve the lives of those around us and leave our planet better than we found it. But it doesn’t only benefit others, giving back can actually give us a sense of purpose and meaning to life.
WHY? Why do you do what you do? Why are you driven to make it happen? We had a hard time answering this question but once we did, it changed everything.
What we do, how we choose to do it, and when and where we do it are all variables. But our why will always remain intact as it’s part of who we are. It helps us stay focused, gives us clarity, keeps us passionate about our goal, and makes us live with integrity.
When we found our why, we realized we needed to modify our business to align with our values and beliefs. It gave us purpose: we didn’t want to just make money through our business, we wanted to truly help and impact the life of pets, specially those with health problems like our girl Echo. The motivation to share and post about our lifestyle on social media platforms also changed. We’re not sharing because we want to be famous or rich. We’re sharing it because it can inspire someone to live life on their terms. If we were all happy and doing what we love, the world would be a much better place.
