I met Erik when we were both living in Chiang Mai, Thailand. It had to be CM, of course. The epicenter of small creative digital entrepreneurs. He told me that one day he asked himself that famous question, “If he had enough money to stop working, what would he do?”. And he realized he would travel the world to eat delicious food.
He noticed his most precious “eating and cultural” experiences had happened when grandmas were in charge. So he started a youtube channel called “cookin with grandmas” just for the fun of it, to share these experiences with his friends. And now, not only he has thousands of followers, he got a contract for his own TV show!
I’m sure his story will inspire you, to go after your exciting career!
Johnny is a personal transformation blogger, who is constantly living and sharing his journey. He founded “Nomad Summit”, for example, which is a conference held in Chiang Mai, Thailand, each year, that attracts hundreds of people interested in the digital nomad life. He has podcasts, various online courses, he does coaching, blogging, writes books, among many other interesting projects.
I admire him for his hard work, for always sharing all that he learns and for constantly trying to be achieve a better version of himself. This way, he’s been helping thousands of people to do the same.
I first met him in Chiang Mai in 2015, while working at Punspace, my favorite coworking there. I was just starting this podcast when I attended “Nomad Summit” conference with around a hundred people (last year it was over 400 people) and I really enjoyed it. So I wanted to hear from him the story behind it all. And here you’ll have it. We talk about all the “sides” of Johnny and you can see how humble and giving he is.
It’s interesting to notice how he likes inspiring and challenging those who approach him. When I invited him to participate in the podcast, he asked me how many interviews I had already done. When I said that he’d be my third interviewee, he asked me to invite him again when I had five. So I did. We recorded this 18 months ago, when he made a new challenge.
I told him that I was taking around six months to publish each new episode because of my work as a business coach and because of my delaying perfectionism. I told him how much I wanted to be more like him to just put it out there, no matter how good it was. So he challenged me again to publish this episode in 30 days, but it took me 18 whole months!! Oh man!
I guess I owe him and my followers my apologies for taking so long and for keeping this great material all to myself. Shame on me! The truth is that I had to prioritize some other projects before I could come back to this podcast that I love producing. But the good news is that I did it now, rather than never. Right? So enjoy!
We talk about:
* Why Johny “FD"
* the reason he went to Thailand
* the difference between Koh tao and koh lanta for diving
* the many “sides" of him (Fighting, diving, podcasting, coaching, events, drop shipping, udemy courses, amazon books, etc)
* why he shares his income
* experience coaching groups to drop shipping
* instant x perfect
* How he approaches his projects - ex “friday nomad coffees”
* Good Karma
* what is “retirement” for him
* Nomad Summit evolution - from free event to a few people to 400 people
* CTA for those looking to make a career transition
“I think a lot of people spend too much time focusing on how to do it perfectly versus just getting started”
“Good Karma exists. The easiest way to make 1MM dollars is to help 1MM people”
“not everyone was meant to be an entrepreneur”
"even if I had to start over, I could do this again”
"if you have a job now, spend 2 months mastering it, and if you still don’t like it, change it!"
"Ter pessoas experientes ao seu lado é o que vai ajudar você realizar seus sonhos"
"O importante não é a Faculdade ou curso técnico, o importante é uma boa ORIENTAÇÃO para ajudar a tomar uma boa decisão para onde a gente quiser ir. Isso se encontra na Universidade, num Coach, na família, nas pessoas mais experientes, um mentor"
"Busque e contate essas pessoas que sirvam de inspiração e orientação, sem ego, sem vergonha"
"Confiança é tudo na vida. Você pode ser divertido, um fanfarrão, mas na hora de trabalhar deve ser serio. Você não precisa ser o melhor, mas as pessoas devem poder contar com você"
I met Eduard a couple of years ago at my first Digital Nomad event in Barcelona. I had just learned this term "digital nomad" a few months before through a website called www.nomadlist.com. I saw they organized events in various cities around the world, and I saw there would be one in Barcelona, so I got excited to go meet some like minded world traveling digital entrepreneurs like me, for the first time.
When I got there, I sat next to this young man, in his early twenties, who gave me a class on how to register a business in Hong Kong. He had done it years before and had already lived in several countries. I could not stop talking and learning from him. And I am still learning. Since then we’ve become friends and are always exchanging ideas on different struggles we go through. I’m sure you, too, will enjoy meeting Eduard and keeping up with what he is constantly learning and sharing.
Some time after that, he invited me to join his Coworking, where we had the most amazing view of Barcelona to work from. That’s where we recorded this talk for you.
And a few months after we recorded, he published a great article called "What I Learned Starting Lumumba And Fucking It Up". It’s a must read after you listen to this conversation we had. Hope you enjoy!
