BN 081: How Travel Changes When You Build a Startup (Part 2 of ep 078)
When business commitments start increasing, can you still live a nomadic lifestyle? And if yes, how does it differ from a freelance or purely nomadic lifestyle?
In this episode, we continue the conversation from episode 078... But instead of focusing on "what it's like to build a startup while nomading," Eli explains "what it's like to nomad -- while building a startup."
By the end, we surprise ourselves with some candidly open reflections on the nomadic pursuit and what it means for a fulfilling life. What else would you expect from a BN pod??
Our conversation mentions startup ecosystems and StartupBlink's work in tracking them. Check out the map & ranking system here to see what we're talking about!
