I started doing this a few years ago. I would email my favorite podcasters to let them know where I was reading, viewing, or listening to their stuff.
I just thought it was so cool to visualize the crazy connections that were being made. Anyway, I thought I’d make it a little more official with a page on the blog. I’ll start to take pictures of me as I’m going around as a little homage to some of my favorite podcasters/writers/crazy internet people.
If you’d like to submit yours, please email me! dan at tropical mba dot com. Doesn’t need to be a pic of you listening to our podcast, but that’s cool of course!
(NOTE: Our primary podcast used to be called “Lifestyle Business Podcast,” that’s why there are so many references below to it and “LBP.”)

I’m a huge fan of your podcast and listen to it every week. Thanks for all the good info and tips you’ve given us over the years. I’ve attached a photo of me listening to the podcast while on my way to New York in my private jet. Feel free to post it to your listeners page.
“Started listening to the show a few months ago. Usually Iisten in my apartment after my 9 to 6 or sometimes, like in the picture, when I’m listening to you guys instead of studying for the GRE that I’m taking soon! I used to travel and be a vagabond myself but gave it up for the life I have now… thanks for doing the show, it’s great!” – Elizabeth

The Lifestyle Business Podcast is a wealth of information. Even though I don’t keep up on the oversees jargon (as a health practitioner) or run in the same circles as these crazy cats, my business understanding has increased exponentially since becoming a regular listener of the LBP.
Added your several of your podcast’s to my iPhone. Recent 12 hour drive to New York decided to give it a listen. Listened to them the entire rest of the drive. Updating some product info and product images. Keep up the good work.
Just thought I’d send you a quick shot of my office for the night, of course while listening to the LBP while I work on my biz, The Dynamic Design Group. The rest of the house is a little too loud tonight!
Check out the pictures of my pad at http://www.sugarranchmaui.com. I bought the land next to the beach in Maui in 2000, camped on it for a while, and now I’ve got a place that fits my family and many guests. I designed the place on my computer and supervised the construction.
This is us, Tanya and Andrew Davis of Magic Travel Blog fame listening to the LBP on a supposed VIP bus from Luang Prabang to Vang Vieng at the start of April in 2012.
I thought I’d do something to help you in your quest to build an ever improving, quality program. So I did some graffiti……….(sidewalk chalk ads) to spread the word about the LBP on the University of Montana campus in Missoula. In addition to this one, I chalked the business building and some other high traffic areas including the the oval which receives massive foot traffic on a daily basis. – Bob Malloy
I’m still working to cross the chasm, but starting slow with a number of Mac & iOS apps. That cable in the pic is a Sony Ericsson MW600 bluetooth headset+FM Radio combo.
Dan and Ian … So here is the deal…
On my daily commute to work, my lunch break, and during my commute home, I always listen to good stuff, like The Lifestyle Business Podcast. In fact, I just finished listening to all of the episodes. (Episode #51 on) On one of the most recent episodes that I listened to, it said if I sign up for the mailing list, that I would get the first 50 episodes for free! So I finally signed up, downloaded the first 50 episodes, and just put them on my iPod two days ago…
Today I am at Taco Bell for my lunch break from the 9 to 5 job that I HATE!!! Earlier in the day, I had already listened to episode 1 & 2 on the way to work. I pull up at Taco Bell and park my car, grab my iPod, and started playing episode #3 titled ” 10 Unexpected Benefits of Quitting Your Job”…
After placing my order, (I got the $2 lunch box, that is a taco, bag of Doritos, and a drink… just in case Ian was wondering how much money I was wasting) and then went over to fill my drink cup, get some napkins, and some taco sauce. And look what I picked up!.. (Picture below)
One could call it ironic, a coincidence, or a sign. I will just say, to me, that it is justification that I am on the right path!

P.S. I look much better in shorts and a t-shirt. See you in Bali soon!
I walked away from my computer for a few minutes today and the random screen saver came on, looks like the Lifestyle Business Podcast is the only thing in my iTunes these days. – Todd Giannattasio from Tresnic Media
Hey guys, My name is is Cary and I’m a lifestyle designer who listens to the podcast, follows the blog etc. I’m currently living on a cruise ship, playing acoustic guitar. I have my days free to explore the ports all over the world and work on my location independent business during the day, which is a wide array of affiliate, adsense, e-book sites. Just wanted to drop you a line and say hi. I’ll be joining the DC as soon as I get back to the US. I’m kind of halfway location independent because I still have to go where the ship goes. Currently in Honduras and all over the caribbean.~Cheers,Cary
