<span “>First and foremost, happy holidays.<br ” /><br ” /><span “>This time of year is always special – there is some sort of electricity that happens for the two weeks between Christmas and New Year’s Day that seems to light up everyone who feels it. Maybe it’s just because I grew up in the cold Northeast corner of the USA, but I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for a white snowfall and soft lights peppered throughout the trees. All my stress and all the “problems” I think I may have go away. It reminds me that life is about more than downloads, revenue, and Facebook likes. So, so much more.<br ” /> <br ” /><span “>As some of you may know, I’m currently traveling around the world. In fact, I’m in the Maldives right now. THE MALDIVES. Are you kidding me?! I remember back in college when my friend told me he was going there on a family holiday and I thought “wow, that must be amazing to go to a place so exotic.” I never, in a million years, pictured myself going there. And yet here I am. One of the most humbling realizations I’ve ever had.<br ” /> <br ” /><span “>This trip is a celebration of sorts. I’m with my brother and two friends, hopping from country to country in a month long sprint that spans the globe. We’re all doing it for different reasons. Some we talk about openly, like how I made an app to share the travel experiences, but some we don’t talk about so openly, and that’s cool. Everyone’s got their reasons to do stuff, and I dig that. For me, I’ve always tried to be open and honest, but this trip is deeply personal. I didn’t even know it until I landed in Hong Kong for the first real kickoff. I woke up in a small apartment in Wang Chai and almost lost it (in a good way).<br ” /> <br ” /><span “>I realized that I’m finally living my dreams. Like, really living it. I worked hard, figured some shit out, and made some money. Awesome. But what is infinitely more awesome is the self awareness that the past two years has given me. If nothing else, I’ve realized the importance of balance in my life. Being someone who is borderline maniacal in my desire to produce and grow in business, I have learned that I need to give back with an equal fire. Without that release back to the world, I’ll never be happy. Apps have brought me riches and popularity….but with that karma comes responsibility. I’d rather share a small home filled with people I love than have an empty mansion. That applies to virtually everything in my life.<br ” /> <br ” /><span “>And that brings me to why you’re reading this. I’m sitting here on the other side of the world enjoying the ultimate apex of success (in my mind) and have realized that it will not be complete without a gift to match. So I want to give you something special this holiday season, something that will help all of you as much as you have all helped me. I don’t care if I leave this world without a penny to my name – if I am proud of my life, that’s all that matters.<br ” /> <br ” /><span “>Over the next few weeks I’m going to send out a series of discounts on source codes. Massive discounts. Like, fire sale type prices. I’m going to release stuff that I’ve never shown anyone before. I’m going to do all the codes I can, both new and old, and provide solutions for any price point or experience level. I just want to make this holiday season special for all of you, to thank you for being part of this community and being in the app business with me.<br ” /> <br ” /><span “> I’m going to blast this out in the hopes that the sheer amount of gratitude I feel can spread across the world. I’ve reached over a million people on my blog from virtually every country. As I move across the wonderful world we live in, I am realizing how widespread of an impact we can all make if we just try. We just need to try.<br ” /> <br ” /><span “>So, as you all toast to 2013, know that I am sending some positive vibrations (and low priced source code) your way. Here’s to 2014 and all your dreams coming true.<br ” /> <br ” /><span “>Life is short. Make something happen.
