Welcome To Dreams Around The World – The Home of Dan Johnston

Time For A New Approach

I’m Dan. I’m a former entrepreneur turned ​Freelancer turned ​Author and ​Coach. I value freedom and experiences over money and things and I believe we’re all capable of designing our own lives.

So far mine has included living in 7 countries, publishing 12 books, and working hard to achieve my dream of being time and location independent. Along the way I’ve shared my experiences and helped 1000s of people start designing their own lives as well.

I write about psychology, personal development, life design, and anything else I think you’ll find useful and inspiring. I do my best to be uplifting, funny, entertaining, and at least 96% guru free.

On a Mission

​​My mission is to help you become the best version of yourself, all while creating an awesome life for you and those you love.

​I believe that people are at their best when they understand themselves and actively work to design a life ​uniquely suited for them. When people love what they do, they can't help but contribute to others and shape the world for the better. 

​Imagine if more people pursued their calling, woke up excited, and actually did work that mattered?

​That's the world I'm working to create. Want to join me on the journey?
