Meet the Author

Ian Usher was born in 1963 in Darlington in the north-east of England. He grew up in the small northern market town of Barnard Castle, and went to college in Liverpool, gaining a teaching degree in Outdoor Education.


A varied and chaotic career followed, involving many jobs, locations and businesses. From 1992 to 1996 he ran Scarborough Jet Skiing in partnership with long-time best friend Bruce. It was on the beach during this time that he met his wife-to-be.


Laura and Ian married in 2000, and they moved together to Perth in Western Australia. The marriage ended five years later, and in 2008 Ian put his life up for sale on eBay!


Two years of travel followed, in which he tackled a list of 100 goals, aiming to achieve them all in a period of 100 weeks.


He currently lives in Whitehorse in Canada.

    Finding Love

    We have all experienced the sometimes dramatic twists and turns of life. Ian Usher is a fine example of a man capable of using creativity and ingenuity to face unexpected events. Many of us have found connection and inspiration through the adventures and travels of Ian.
    I first heard of Ian on CBC radio, at the time he was auctioning his life on E-Bay. I contacted him, congratulating him on his fantastic idea. He had plans to set his 100 Goals in 100Weeks project in motion and I promptly encouraged him to add dog sledding to his list, inviting him to achieve this goal at my kennel in the Yukon Territory. After several months ongoing contact, he arrived at my place, accomplishing goal #25 in fine style.
    We stayed in contact and met up again a year and a half later, at which time I accompanied Ian in achieving four more goals.
    I am very excited to have a personal appearance in Ian's book, as do all the other wonderful people he met during his travels.
    I have watched Ian work extremely hard over the past several months to produce this book. I have also had the incredible honor of editing Ian's book, a job made easy by Ian's quality writing style. His descriptive ability inspires one to leap onto the next available plane headed for Spain, or Rio, or Peru, or China.
    This is a fabulous read for anyone who has ever fallen in love, out of love, or dreamed of making a life change. Ian has proved that adventure is just around the corner for anyone who chooses to take a peek!
