I'm going to teach you how I afford to travel the world.
When you research how to work for yourself you will surely be bombarded with 1000s of ideas, as well as 1000s of people trying to sell you some B.S. "business in a box" or "magic solution".
The fastest way to work for yourself is to become a freelancer, a coach, or a consultant. In this video I'll share my own experiences working for myself as a freelancing and coaching others.
You'll learn exactly how you can get started working for yourself and the right ways to think about what to actually do.
I'll give you a hint, there is no magic here. It's all about giving real value and actually helping people. When you do, you'll get more freedom and be able to keep working for yourself and living life on your own terms. Oh, and you'll also get to keep your soul. Cool?
I also share my own experience as a digital nomad and talk about how I started working for myself as a freelance copywriter and how this enabled me to live abroad and really design my dream life.
In this video, I also want to actually teach and break down how it could be possible for them, because most of the time when you explain to someone that you have this life where you can live wherever you want, you earn money regardless of the local economy of where you are, and you have pretty much total freedom in terms of where you live and when you work, they're interested in how they could do that as well. I've wanted to make this video, this video right now for years where I break down the best way to do it and how it can be done.
Now, if you're wondering who am I to talk about this stuff, well, I've been location independent for over four years now. I started off leaving my hometown of Vancouver, Canada in 2012.
I was working as a freelance copywriter and was broke. I'm not going to use some curse words to tell you how broke I was, but I was as broke as you can get.
I made this decision to kind of follow through regardless, on my dream of living around the world and managed to not only make it work, but really increase my business and turn things around to the point, where we're at a really nice profitable freelancing business, where I was able to go from Costa Rica to New York, where I was able to surprise my brother with a flight to visit me, and I was able to do all this while working as a freelancer on my own hours with the freedom to live where I wanted.
Since then, I've grown my business to include writing my own books, teaching online courses as well as doing coaching. So I have a fair share of experience not only through my own life, but also working one-on-one with other people as they went through this journey of becoming a freelancer, and then designing their own life around that.
Now I hope you don't mind me talking about myself a bit, I've been told I have to put that in these videos because people want to know, "Who is this guy? Why should I listen to him?"
So, now that we have that out of the way, I want to go back to our original premise, which is that conversation that comes up time and time again, where I run into someone who says, "I want your life. How can I have that kind of freedom, and work for myself?"
I want to go through what I would tell them, what I do tell them in that conversation.
The first thing I would say, and I want to say about working for yourself is, don't over-complicate it. It doesn't have to be this crazy complicated thing.
Now, I think the best way to get started, in terms of working for yourself and having the freedom to set your own schedule is freelancing, consulting or coaching. There's a bunch of reasons why I think this is by far the best way to get started. I'll go through that later on in the video, but for now, just roll with me here.
So within this area, you don't need to over-complicate things. A lot of people, myself included, especially myself, we have an instinct of making things more complicated than they need to be. Ultimately, what a good freelancer does, is they provide value.
