    Amazon FBA, Remote Year and Life in Saigon with Kai Law

    Amazon FBA, Remote Year and Life in Saigon with Kai Law

    Today’s guest is Kai Law. Being tired of 12 hour working days back in New Zealand he looked for an alternative and started to work on ways to make money online. He got to know about the digital nomad hub in Chiang Mai and not much later in 2014 he took the leap and bought a one-way plane ticket to Thailand. After trying drop shipping he got sucked into the newly developing scene of Amazon FBA. He quickly killed it and soon was able to follow his passion to travel. A program called Remote Year, 12 month 12 countries, caught his attention and he decided to apply. He got accepted and spent 4 month in 4 different countries across Europe before he dropped out and got back to work in Chiang Mai and later Saigon. We talk about the reasons why he dropped the program, the lessons he learned throughout those years, what he is working on now and the incredible lifestyle he enjoys today. I really enjoyed this talk and learned a lot form it and I hope you will too.

    NYC Rat Race, Living in a Car, Finding Lifes Spark and Taking Action with Digital Nomad Anthony Rigogliosi

    NYC Rat Race, Living in a Car, Finding Lifes Spark and Taking Action with Digital Nomad Anthony Rigogliosi

    Today’s guest is Anthony Rigogliosi. We’ve met a couple of times before and always ended up having deep conversations about the big questions of life. I was really keen to have him on the show and so he came and visited me. He tells us about his fascinating and inspiring story from being a manager and living the unfulfilled life in the rat race to become a digital Nomad living in Chiang Mai. Things started to fall apart when his ex girlfriend cheated on him which drove him towards alcohol as a pain killer. Soon he realized and reflected on his situation and took action. He was living in his car, in a wall mart parking lot to finish his studies and then took a big step towards a better life. He flew out to Asia where he cycled across Thailand, Laos ,Cambodia and Vietnam. During that time he had countless local interactions and finally found his spark. To not spoil it I leave it like this and you will understand when you listen to him. After turning off the mic we kept talking for another 3 hours and WE wished we would’ve recorded it. We definitely need to go for a second episode to really dive into what excites US the most. Deep thoughts and the big questions of life. Nevertheless it’s been a great chat and I hope you enjoy it.

    Adventures in Rwanda and Tanzania, 100 Year Old Cargo Ship and Dangerous Busses (Story of My Life Part 2)

    I recall one of the most adventurous and memorable experiences while traveling Rwanda and Tanzania. This covers 3 days on a 100 year old German cargo ship (felt like Titanic) and surviving a few mad bus journeys.

    The ship is called MV Liemba and crosses Lake Tanganyika every week. Amazing adventure!

    Chiang Mai Digital Nomad Pioneer, Better Me Boardgame and Solution Based Thinking with Dan O’Donnell

    Chiang Mai Digital Nomad Pioneer, Better Me Boardgame and Solution Based Thinking with Dan O’Donnell

    Today’s guest is Dan O’Donnell. He’s been an entrepreneur since he was young and became one of the pioneers of the digital nomad movement in Thailand. He started the Chiang Mai Digital Nomad Facebook Group which by now has over 10.000 members as well as the Positive Thinking Facebook Page with over One Million likes. With his passion for self development mixed with his entrepreneurial instinct he went down the road less traveled and created a self-development board game called Better Me – The Game of Growth. Today the game is becoming more and more successful by the day but the journey to reach this point was troublesome and filled with failures which I like to call lessons. Despite that we also talk about positive and solution based thinking, being prepared for the worst case, from dreaming to taking action and learning from other peoples mistakes. I really enjoyed this talk and learned a lot and I hope you will enjoy it too.

    Best and Toughest Decision I Ever Made (Story of My Life Part 1)

    Best and Toughest Decision I Ever Made (Story of My Life Part 1)

    I started following up with one of my dreams which is writing my first book. Simultaneously I decided to record an audio version to get my mind and memory going. In this episode I talk about how a 6 week backpacking trip in Thailand in 2011 changed my life, how I made my final decision to leave everything behind and the adventure of the first 5 month traveling/ living in Africa.

    And here is the beginning of my book (First Draft):


    It was late summer 2011 when I decided to go backpacking in Thailand. For the first time in my life I decided to go by myself abroad without having any plans or bookings. A few weeks earlier I came across the word backpacking the first time and started to research it. Quickly Thailand landed on my radar as the number one spot as easy entry for backpacking. I read countless blogs and travel sites and fell in love with the idea of an adventure. I always felt drawn to real adventures but would’ve never imagined I could actually do it. And here it was. The opportunity to live an adventure. I checked my working schedule and decided to take 4 week off in October/ November 2011. My shift system had one week off every 5 weeks. Together with one week before and one week after those 4 weeks I got 6 weeks in total. Awesome.

    Once that was set I booked a flight and that was it. I bought all the fancy backpacking equipment starting with a 65L backpack, daypack, mosquito net and so on. The day came quick and off I was. I didn’t speak much English at that time but I felt confident enough to go without any plans or bookings. Once arrived in Bangkok I made my way to the famous Khao San road and here my new life started to unfold. Today I don’t like this area anymore. Too much hustle and all those backpackers (ha!) but back then it felt like home away from home. So many people to meet and socialize.

    I quickly booked my ticket to get south to the islands starting with Koh Tao. Once down there I took a diving course and got my advanced license within a week. Absolute amazing and well worth the money. From now on I was able to dive anywhere in the world and I did.

    Again I met so many people and made many new friends. Some of whom I’m still in touch today. I remember meeting 2 guys who told me they’ve been traveling since 3 years. 3 years!! I couldn’t warp my head around that. The longer I traveled the more of such people I met. One to two years seemed to be normal and money was never a big issue. Life out here was cheap. After about 3 weeks I was on Koh Phangan and I must have read a book at that time that printed one quote into my mind. Till today I live by this quote. “Everything happens for a reason”. At that time I was just starting out to think about the bigger questions of life but that quote became the foundation of my future. Thinking back I’m actually impressed with myself knowing what journey it took to become who I am today and remembering that even back than as a newbie in life I already realized the value of those words without knowing their deeper meaning.

    The night I wanted to leave Koh Phangan with a night boat has become one of the strong memories of that trip. It was like 10 PM when the ferry was supposed to leave and I went to the port on time. But the crew was asleep and the watchman told me that the boat isn’t gonna go tonight. It was late and most shops were closed. The little port town was almost like a ghost town. I remember thinking, okay, there is reason I’m in this situation. Instead of being worried I just took it with a pinch of salt and walked across the dark streets until a guy in a pub called for me. He was actually German and funny enough, he had a guest room for me upstairs. The next day I took the day ferry and made friends with a group of 4 guys. We became good friends and stayed together for the next 2 weeks. There was the reason I was looking for. If

    Wall Street Burnout, Ayahuasca, Digital Nomad and Life Coach in Thailand with Christopher Chiu

    Wall Street Burnout, Ayahuasca, Digital Nomad and Life Coach in Thailand with Christopher Chiu

    Today’s guest is Christopher Chiu. He started his career in new york city and quickly got sucked into the stressful and unfulfilling lifestyle of wall street.  His physical and mental health started to suffer dramatically. A turning point came when his lung collapsed twice in the age of 28. Now seeking a better life he came across the term digital nomad. On deeper research he got sucked into a world of freedom, happiness and endless possibilities. Without wasting much time he took a 6 week vacation and flew out to Thailand where he found fulfillment in training Muay Thai and enjoying the easy lifestyle. After returning home he knew that he wanted a different life and as soon as he was done with his MBA he took immediate action, quit his job and got a one way ticket to Thailand. 3 years later he has become a serial entrepreneur with several businesses and also coaches clients who are stuck in similar situation then he was how to create the life they want. He also tells me about his disrupted childhood and how he found healing through Ayahuasca in South America. I really enjoyed this talk. It’s been truly inspiring and I hope you enjoy it too.

Great Stuff by Toto

Cool insights and noteworthy anecdotes by the global nomad himself! Tune in to hear the lastest adventures and stories from around the world.

@CRWNYC ,

Toto is the real deal

I actually met Toto last year along with other entrepreneurs and digital nomads in Lithuania. When I asked Toto what he did, he described himself as a "dreamer". After knowing and following Toto for more than a year now, I've found that he is far more than a dreamer but a "doer". He has a "live anywhere", "learn from anyone", "challenge yourself and others to be better people" mentality. Toto is a true inspiration and resource to me and he has a lot to offer the world - so listen in!

jrcrocks ,

Loving the Toto Experience!

Torsten really gives some valuable insight, both through what he talks about and the great guests he has on, would highly recommend giving this a listen!
