One of the main questions I’m asked on social media or after talking events, is how much do I get sponsored or ‘how do I get sponsored’
So I thought it easier if I wrote a little blog about it
Simple answer is you don’t, Unless you’re a name like Ben Fogle. Companies will not be willing to pay for your holidays.
Me and many others have all gone down the self funded route, even Levison Woods recent trip to the Middle East was self funded.
But is it worth it?
Do you really want to be sponsored? I know I don’t, I get a lot of offers from brands asking me to wear this or carry that. In return for pictures.
But taking thousands of pictures of a branded Tshirt just gets tiring! And your followers just get sick of you endorsing this brand every five minutes.
Then you have the added problem of all this free gear, which you’ve never worn or tested before!
JUST STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF
Remember it is your adventure, do you really want to lose your adventure to a brand selling stuff?
I use my reliable kit I’ve had for years, my trusty boots and then pick up cheap clothes in the country.
