Who among us didn’t think Tree Houses were cool when we were kids. Well Treehouses are still cool and for some passionate individuals, Tree Houses are a way of life. We had the pleasure of meeting our Adventurer and now converted Itchy Nomad, Damon Bishop, while touring the famous TreeHouse Point treehouse collection in Fall City, Washington. What struck us was Damon’s commitment to his love of Tree Houses and how he changed his entire life to follow his dream. His enthusiasm is infectious and his philosophy is refreshing and life affirming.
We hope you enjoyed meeting Damon and learning about his journey, the challenges he has overcome and the tips, lessons and strategies that he shared. Below is a list of these for your quick reference. Also, we are providing a link to Treehouse Point and Instructions on the Secret Way to Get Info. There are links to both the Book and Calendar that Damon mentioned, should you wish to buy those.
If you could do anything, what would you do?
What’s stopping you?
Once you ask the question, you’ll be surprised how the path around the obstacles reveals itself.
Here are Damon’s Tips and Strategies for listening to your heart and making your dreams come true:
1. Concentrate on changing your “vibe” from negative to positive.
2. Don’t concentrate on the “How”, instead focus on what you want and how that feels.
3. Hold what you desire in gratitude.
4. Act as if “The Thing” you desire already exists.
5. Pay yourself 1st. His rule is 10% or the first hour of work whichever is the greater and that you can afford.
6. Stay out of debt + Savings = Flexibility
7. Build in giving as a part of your money life.

Fun interview! I sure would love to see those tree houses. The pictures are great too.
Thank you CiCi. The camera sure loves Damon. So glad you liked the interview. Hope you are spotting lots of Whales! Your compliment about the pictures coming from someone like yourself with professional camera talents.
What a fabulous interview! Damon presents both himself and his journey so well! I love your bravery Damon, both in leaving NY to begin a new chapter and in your ability to maintain a healthy relationship from a distance. The treehouses go without saying…they’re amazing!
Thank you Marcia for your wonderful endorsement. We totally agree that Damon is a wonderful communicator and it took courage for him to step out of his comfort zone and start his new chapter. We love you participating and look forward to hearing more from you. So glad to have you on the Caravan!
