[E4C27] Hack Your Body & Mind for Optimal Health, Naturally – Alexis Shields

It’s amazing how many traditional, brick and mortar businesses you can actually take completely offline. For example, the growing practice of telemedicine is relieving congestion in the health care system, saving clients the time it takes to get to an appointment in a physical location, and allowing providers the ability to serve more people across geographic locations and time zones. Naturopathic medicine is one of those fields that is well-suited for telemedicine. Alexis Shields is a naturopathic doctor who sold her brick and mortar practice, and recreated her business as a

[E4C25] Travel the World for Years While Your Remote Team Does All the Work – Trinity de Guzman

Have you ever had an experience of seeing a total stranger, and feeling a sense of recognition that compels you to want to talk to them? While I was celebrating the end of the Mayan Calendar - December 2012 - in Mexico, I had the privilege of meeting a digital nomad kindred spirit while I was on my way to Cozumel for a scuba diving holiday. We actually crossed paths weeks before at El Castillo, an ancient Mayan archaeological site in Tulum. Somehow, something clicked between us in passing – he laughed at a joke I made to my friends, but we didn't talk, so when I ran into him again,

[E4C24] How to Build a Passive Income Empire – Empire Flippers

Ever wish business was easy? Every entrepreneur I’ve spoken to has told me that starting a business and growing it, was a lot of hard work, that really involves busting through your fears, and persevering beyond the point where most people give up. Typically, along this entrepreneurial journey, you might stumble upon this concept, which has become a bit of a “holy grail” in the online world. That’s the idea of “passive income.” However, passive income, is rarely ever “passive”. It may be residual, recurring income, that is to say that revenues come in 24/7, even if you are offline and on

Sales Funnels Demystified - FusionHQ

Today I made a momentous decision – I have decided to stay in Chiang Mai indefinitely. I’ve spent a lot of time assessing my optimal lifestyle design scenario. One scenario that I explored was spending 6 months in the SF Bay Area, 6 months elsewhere. I have to admit, I miss my tribe – and SF has a unique subculture that is a  blend of technology innovation, sustainability, social enterprise, spirituality, personal growth, music and art, that I find wonderfully expressed by the Burning Man community, that simply cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Not in New York, not in London, not in

I finally finished the Suitcase Entrepreneur, a book written by the woman who inspires me the most to live a digital nomad lifestyle – Natalie Sisson. The last couple chapters of her book explores the pros and cons of location independence, with the purpose of helping you decide whether this lifestyle is for you at all. And if so, how you might want to consider designing your life of continuous travel. There are so many ways to do location independence. For some it involves being constantly on the move. For others, it looks like slow travel – establishing a place as a long-term base from

[E4C20] How Entrepreneurs Can Stay Productive & Inspired During Challenging Times – Dominate Depression

Entrepreneurs for a Change on iTunes

Today we are going to talk about a taboo subject in the world of business – depression. It’s taboo because in the business world, you are not allowed to be depressed, let alone show it. If you even talk about being sad or bummed out, people kind of give you a funny look, back away slowly, avoid you, or in the very least, might give you a pat on the back and say, “Buck up champ, turn the page! You’ll get through this, tomorrow’s a new day.” Which, while being well meaning, may not necessarily do much to improve your mood. In business, you are supposed to be a go-getter, a mind hacker, and

The Art of Visionary Leadership & Authority Marketing - Till Carlos

The topic of visionary leadership is fascinating to me – what inspires people to follow one person, over another? What motivates masses of people to follow a single person? What does it take to inspire the people who work for you to do it joyfully and enthusiastically? I’m thrilled to have Till Carlos on this interview because he’s been trying to crack the code to visionary leadership, and he and I have many rewarding conversations about what it takes to be a leader. Till is a software developer who interviews successful entrepreneurs on this very topic for his podcast – Leadership

I’ve met all kinds of cool, inspiring, and super smart entrepreneurs as a digital nomad these past 16 months. One internet entrepreneur whose footsteps I’m inspired to follow is Anton Kraly. Anton is a 29 year old guy from New York who has been making a full-time income online for the past eight years while being 100% location independent.  He got started after purchasing an offline business in 2006, which he quickly transformed into an e-commerce company. He’s been creating profitable online businesses ever since. Another colleague from the Dynamite Circle community – Johnny FD, the

One of the most inspiring and enthusiastic Internet marketers I have met here is a man named AJ Silvers, the founder of Conversions.io. In the IM community, AJ is a well known conversions geek, analytics addict and split testing fanatic. In 2013, he spent months working behind the scenes running the tracking, split testing and conversion optimization on Internet marketing product launches that generated over $832,000 in sales. What I love about this interview is that AJ shares examples related to product launches in the LOHAS market – the Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability Market -

WordPress Essentials for Small Business - Efficient WP

Today we’re joining Doug Yuen, a location independent WordPress developer who runs a managed WordPress hosting service called Efficient WP. Doug is one of my old friends from the Dynamite Circle community. A pod of us, roughly 35 digital nomads migrated up to Chiang Mai after the first Dynamite Circle conference in Bangkok in 2012. We took over half of a full service luxury condo and proceeded to co-work from various wifi cafes in the neighborhood. Now I’ve helped a number of clients with creating WordPress sites for their business and even though WordPress is considered to be one of the
