Rank #2: Ep 97: Guide to International Airbnb Investments with Jasper Ribbers

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode I'm joined by Jasper Ribbers author of Get Paid for Your Pad and The Traveling Dutchman.

After years of being a financial trader he decided to try renting his own house on Airbnb. He soon learned that this alone gave him the money he needed to travel full time. He then dug in deep to short term-rental optimization and wrote the book Get Paid for Your Pad which was one of the first books on the topic. He now is a sought after expert and speaker.

Not only did we speak about vacation rentals, but his life on the road and many of the other ways that he has been making money while living a location independent lifestyle.

I hope you enjoy it!

Rank #3: Ep 86: Expat or Digital Nomad

Podcast cover
Read more

Sitting in on the beach with your toes in the sand, sipping a Mai-Tai and coding the next ground breaking app. Does that sounds too good to be true? Well, that's because it usually is.

Search #digitalnomad on social media and you will see an onslaught of pictures with people in all kinds of strange positions with their laptops in locations that would be pretty inappropriate to concentrate on any kind of serious task.

That does not mean that it is all smoke an mirrors however. There was a very interesting Harvard Study done about the reality of the self-proclaimed digital nomads, the results of which were written about in an article entitled Globetrotting Digital Nomads: The Future Of Work Or Too Good To Be True? I think it's one of the best articles written on the topic. It turns out there are very few people who have staying power as a digital nomad.

So is being a digital nomad a viable long term path or a risky career gamble?

To answer that question Brian David Crane gave a talk entitled The Hidden Downsides of Being A Digital Nomad in which went over many of the unrealistic aspects of the digital nomad lifestyle. I thought it was well thought out and he made some interesting points to consider.

Three things that he says are essential in order to have staying power as a digital nomad are:

  1. A plan
  2. An in-demand skill
  3. Self-discipline

Some of the drawbacks that he points out are:

  • Undeveloped "Plate Discipline" which is knowing what to spend your time on once you are free from an office.
  • Lack of mentorship.
  • Your appearance can cause envy or perceptions that could jeopardize your career.
  • Lack of sustainable momentum.
  • Road fatigue.
  • Lack of stability.
  • An unhealthy mix of friendship and business.

However, that does not mean that working abroad is a bad option. He recommends to stop thinking of yourself as a nomad and more of an expat. Expats stay longer than a few months in at least one base where they have some kind of roots established.

After listening to this talk I realized that I am an expat and not a digital nomad, even though I have described myself as such in the past. This is a good realization because these bases could also be described as flags for which to apply PT Theory.

Much of what he recommends is similar to what I recommended in my recent video How to make money in Latin America.

At the end of the day the distinction may seem like we are splitting hairs but I think there are some important things to consider.

Please take a listen to my conversation with Brian David Crane on this topic, especially if you are thinking about taking the digital nomad plunge.

On this 98th episode of the Borderless Podcast I spoke to Rich Holman, founder and president of FAR international. He first came down to Medellin, Colombia in 2006 and quickly realized that it was the place that he wanted to live. He also realized that there were no English speaking real state offices in the whole city. He decided to take the leap and at over 60 years old and with very limited Spanish he moved to Medellin and started his own real estate company. Now 12 years later, not only is his real estate company, FAR International, thriving with 4 offices and over 100 employees, but he has many other successful business ventures as well. He 's able to do all of this in a place that he considers to be the best city on earth.

Unfortunately, due to a computer problem only  half the interview was recorded. Even so, I think there is some great information there for those thinking of being tail-blazers themselves.

Richard Chapois a lawyer that has been practicing on the front lines of internet law for decades. I was able to speak to him about some of the recent regulation and what that will mean for small business and the world.

According to Richard, there is a global trend of governments fighting back against the tech companies. He believes this will result in what he calls "The Splinternet" where the internet will be drastically different depending on where you are geographically.

In addition we talk about what internet business owners need to keep in mind to stay in compliance with current and upcoming legislation. I found the interview to be fascinating and I think you probably will as well.

Many entrepreneurs are not as aware of business credit as they should be. Business credit works almost exactly like personal credit but is based on your companies EIN (Tax ID) number instead of your personal Social Security Number. Getting credit through your business has many benefits. In fact, almost all businesses today are run with business credit and not using it will disadvantage you greatly. Business credit is available to non-US citizens and can be built in all countries where you can incorporate.

During the interview we thoroughly go over most of the important things you need to know when building business credit.

Rank #20: Ep 101: From the Nation State to Stateless Nations with Tom W. Bell

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode I spoke to Tom W. Bell.

Governments across the globe have begun evolving from lumbering bureaucracies into smaller, more agile special jurisdictions - common-interest developments, special economic zones, and proprietary cites. Private providers increasingly deliver services that political authorities formerly monopolized, inspiring greater competition and efficiency, to the satisfaction of citizens-qua-consumers. These trends suggest that new networks of special jurisdictions will soon surpass nation states in the same way that networked computers replaced mainframes. In his groundbreaking work Your Next Government?: From the Nation State to Stateless Nations, Tom W. Bell describes the quiet revolution transforming governments from the bottom up, inside-out, worldwide, and how it will fulfill its potential to bring more freedom, peace, and prosperity to people everywhere.
