What’s Up World! I’m Libby Tucker.
Sometimes I go by LibTuck.
I create startups while I travel. I call these Anywhere Startups. I like going Anywhere with just a backpack and a laptop.
I do not consider myself a writer, but I do minimal blogging on LiveWorkAnywhere.
When I was 20 I took my first trip abroad, to Spain. At that time I discovered my lifelong passion – living and working in other countries, learning languages and cultures.
See my Ignite talk in Chile introducing the concept of an Anywhere Startup and my personal journey.
Some of my Anywhere Startups have included Beer2Buds, which came out of my experience living in Spain, and wanting to reconnect with my friends. PromoBomb, a SaaS spinoff from Beer2Buds which has helped pay for my continuous travel while I support my clients remotely. HoldAccountable.me , a weekend project based on WordPress, Gravity Forms, and Infusionsoft that I use to hold weekly accountability meetings.
I like digital problem solving. I don’t like to be stuck in one place.
Though I cannot sing or play guitar well – I sure love to try! I picked up a ukelele while traveling on StartupBus and learned Somewhere over the Rainbow by Brudda Iz.
I love to snowboard on my LibTech (nope, libtuck came from my name and not the snowboard brand or niptuck). My happiest place is in my red dagger kayak on the ocean. I love anything water, maybe because I’m a Cancer – born on the 4th of July.
For my birthday I like to remind myself of the real reason we celebrate birthdays – for being alive. I’ve gone cliff diving in Croatia, skydiving in Hawaii, Paragliding, zip lining, hang gliding, and more.
I am fluent in Spanish and can speak or understand a few different dialects, I’m intermediate level in German, and I still plan to study French, Russian, and Mandarin.
I like to take a lot of photos and have several travel photos on picasa.
Give me a call!
