So you want to know how I traveled from Newark, New Jersey to Chicago, Illinois, then Phoenix, Sedona, Flagstaff & Page Arizona for a TOTAL cost of $633(includes all food, folks, flights and fun)

Here's the breakdown of my 7-days away:

Chicago & Arizona: A LIVE RICHER Adventure...

- My new client flew me to the Chi to speak to a rowdy group of actors. I had the best time! My client also paid for my flight and 1 night accommodations. Cost: $0 (I made money!)

- I extended my stay in Chicago to visit friends & family, as well as to  explore the city. I stayed with my sister. Cost: $30 (for food when I hung-out)

- I asked my client to fly me to Arizona instead of back home to New Jersey. It was over $100 cheaper for them. Cost: $0

- Before I got to Arizona, I reserved a car online ( it's cheaper this way), and I used a coupon code and saved over $100! I even got a free upgrade to an SUV. Cost: $250 for a week via Dollar Express. (including all taxes, fees and insurance)

- I stayed in 2 different hostels vs. hotels. I love hostels. I've met some awesome people who've invited me to visit them around the world. My favorite hostel on this trip was in Phoenix. It was brand new and called CamelBackpackers. They even had an awesome and FREE, 4th of July BBQ for their guests.  Cost: $100 (for 4 nights at both hostels)
