    Ep103 Started Her Digital Nomad Life With $12K. This Expert Shares Her Secrets to a Life of Freedom – Amy Scott 🌎

    Ep103 Started Her Digital Nomad Life With $12K. This Expert Shares Her Secrets to a Life of Freedom – Amy Scott 🌎

    Digital Nomad Amy Scott figured out 14 years ago that her normal 9-to-5 job and normal life wasn’t for her. She was an Editor in San Francisco for a travel guide publishing company commuting into the city and squeezing out her own travel experiences around her vacation time.
    That wasn’t good enough for her so she started the process of planning her escape but it took her longer than expected to save up what she needed. 2 ½ years actually of planning, saving and most importantly keeping her dream secret from her employer until she was ready launch. The day finally came, she left her job and started traveling but her nest-egg that she felt was enough to get her going was just $12,000.
    🎙Listen on Apple Podcasts🎙 She is now a veteran at living the location independent lifestyle and her life now reads like the travel guide books that she was once editing. But what’s interesting is that she’s got the same career as an Editor but just in a different industry.
    She figured out the formula to create her career around her lifestyle versus restricting her lifestyle around her career. In this episode we discuss... Quitting her 9-to-5 with only $12,00o to start her digital nomad life. Crying at the curb at the airport when her friends dropped her off for her first flight out. Relying on her existing skills as a copy editor to recreate her career and be location independent. Her first years of non-stop travel. Transitioning to 'slow travel' and staying in one place for months at a time. My conversation with Amy Scott of Nomadtopia is coming up next.
    Why she now helps coach people through the transition of 9-to-5 to digital nomad. ----Show Notes---

    Ep102 Bumfuzzle Family of 4 Adventures the World by Land and by Sea - Pat Schulte ⛵️🚙

    Ep102 Bumfuzzle Family of 4 Adventures the World by Land and by Sea - Pat Schulte ⛵️🚙

    Pat Schulte, his wife Ali and 2 kids are officially the Bumfuzzle family adventuring the world for the last 15 years by land and by sea. They pulled the ripcord on their normal life 15 years ago. Back then, Pat was a stocks and commodities trader in Chicago working the trading pits and living the normal urban life in downtown Chicago but things started to change. Their friends started to move in the direction of buying a house in the suburbs and having kids but they weren't ready for that.
    So instead this Midwest couple came up with the idea to buy a sail boat and sail around the world. The problem was that neither one of them had ever step foot on a sail boat.
    🎙Listen on Apple Podcasts🎙 They took Sailing 101 on Lake Michigan and launched to sail around the world. From that point 15 years have gone by and they have traveled by land and by sea all over the world and along the way added 2 kids to the journey.
    This family of 4 is still moving and Pat is still a stocks and commodities trader. He’s figured out how to continue his profession and make money from literally anywhere in the world. And they don’t even own a cell phone.
    They are also helping others follow in their wake by posting pics, tips and life hacks on their site, Bumfuzzle. Thanks to Cordel McNarland for introducing me Pat’s story.
    If you like Pat’s story of selling it all to jump on a sailboat, check out epsisode #58. Bobby White was a corporate pilot when a brain hemorrhage ended his career so he bought a sailboat and is now a Marketing Influencer on Youtube with over 100,000 subscribers to his channel.

    Ep101 TV News Reporter Quits and Buys an Airstream to Chase Down the Greatest of US - Caleb James

    Ep101 TV News Reporter Quits and Buys an Airstream to Chase Down the Greatest of US - Caleb James

    Caleb James was a TV news reporter in Albuquerque NM chasing down stories in front of the camera, had a very public career and it was the job that he had always dreamed of. But the reality of the job was that the stories he found himself exploring were really just him chasing down bad people demanding that they tell him why they were so bad. One day it occurred to him reliant on horrible things happening in his community for his own job security.
    So he decided to chase the good stories as a Documentary Film Maker but to do that everything in his life had to change. He had to quit his job, leave what was safe and the life that he had built behind and embark on a completely different path. He is now pulling an airstream trailer across the US in search of the good stories under his brand, The Greatest of US.
    🎙Listen on Apple Podcasts🎙 He’s stopping in a new city every week and creating a weekly documentary out of his experience but its not just any normal Youtube video, he is producing multi-layered stories beautifully and produced. and the stars are just normal people that he encounters along the way. One of those people that he meets is actually Abraham Lincoln. Yeah, I’m not freaking kidding. Honest Abe of my hometown in Springfield IL.
    Thank you to previous guest's Derek and Anna Morris for bringing Caleb's story to the podcast. Check out their story in episode #96 when they reached a point of facing their Fears of Doing Nothing and launched out on their around the world travels.

    Ep99 Gave Up the 9-to-5 Grind to Take a Shot at Being a Kayak Fishing YouTube Star – Robert Field 🎣 🐟

    Ep99 Gave Up the 9-to-5 Grind to Take a Shot at Being a Kayak Fishing YouTube Star – Robert Field 🎣 🐟

    3 years ago Robert Field was doing everything that society had told him would bring him happiness. He had earned a masters degree that enabled him to get a great job in finance making plenty of money and everything on paper was just fine when all of the sudden he had a really tragic 4 days.
    He was fired from the fishing rod startup where he was working in finance, he ended a serious relationship with his girlfriend which left him with nowhere to live and his uncle walked to a city park and committed suicide by shooting himself in the head.
    Everything in his life, his beliefs around happiness and his direction changed in those 4 days but he was left with the question,
    “What do I do now?” These experiences catapulted him into following his passion with a vengeance and that passion is kayak fishing and making YouTube videos about his adventures. His pursuit of following his dream and being a YouTube Star along the way had begun.
    🎙Listen on Apple Podcasts🎙 Now 3 years later, Robert is a marketing influencer and Youtube star with nearly 100,000 subscribers to his YakFishTV channel, 37,000 followers on Instagram at YakFishTV and the big one SPONSORSHIPS!
    But Robert doesn't consider himself a Professional Angler or a You Tube Star, he considers his real profession to be a Professional Videographer.
    We go through his evolution into his new profession and that moment during his journey when he absolutely knew that he was on the right path. That moment was brought to him by a 10 year old girl and an emotional call from her mom.
    Thank you to previous guest Mark Vlaskamp for introducing me to Robert. Mark also has a story from corporate grind to kayak fishing. You can check it out on episode #79, 15,482 Mile Road Trip Through 37 States With 1 Canoe and Endless Possibilities.
    If you or you know of someone that pulled the ripcord to completely reinvent their life, I’d love to know about it. You can reach me at gohuntlife.com
    I interviewed Robert from a concrete conference room at the Tercer Piso co-working space in downtown Guanajuato Mexico so any echo chamber noise is my fault. And with that, a shout-out and thank you to my editing crew at Castle Media Group in Austin.

    Ep98 Breaks Out of Silicon Valley to be an Award Winning Voice Actor - Cissy Jones 💪🎙

    Ep98 Breaks Out of Silicon Valley to be an Award Winning Voice Actor - Cissy Jones 💪🎙

    10 years ago Cissy Jones was living the Silicon Valley startup life of 100 hour work weeks, sleeping at the office and was smothered by the ‘what have you done for me lately’ mentality of that world when one day her aunt asked her, what would be your dream job.
    Her answer, "I want to be a voice on the Simpsons." 👈 🚀
    A lot has happened since answering that question 10 years ago.
    Cissy is a professional Voice Actor in LA, a massive voice in the Gaming world and just earned one of the highest awards in her industry by the BAFTA Games Awards that honors ‘outstanding creative achievement’ in the video game industry.
    🎙Listen on Apple Podcasts🎙 We discuss…
    How her Dad’s love of his profession and a simple question from her aunt would change her entire direction.
    How it is actually possible to fit in 100 hours of work when she was slogging it out in Silicon Valley just after college.
    How she fit in voice acting school and keept up with the pace of Silicon Valley.
    Moving to Los Angeles to start and build her voice acting career using the tools that she’d learned in Silicon Valley.
    Never having a doubt that she was meant to be on this Voice Acting path.
    The validation she felt winning the award for Performer at the BAFTA Games Awards.
    If you like this story of massive life & career reinvention, also check out my conversation with Steph Jagger. She quit her job to ski around the world for one year and in the process broke a downhill world record. Listen to episode #89 with Steph here.
    Thank you to Randall Ryan, fellow podcaster and friend back in Austin for introducing me to Cissy.
    If you or you know of someone that pulled the ripcord to completely reinvent their life, I’d love to know about it. You can reach me at gohuntlife.com
    I interviewed Cissy while I was sitting in a concrete conference room at TERC3R Piso coworking space in downtown Guanajuato Mexico so any background noise that you might hear is definitely on me. And on that note, a shout-out to my editing crew at Castle Media Group in Austin. Thank you Thomas Umstattd and the crew there for putting this episode together.

I was there the first time Todd and Allison pulled the ripcord and moved to Mexico. I am so close to doing it myself. Listening to their journey and that of others who have done the same, and not only survive but thrive is inspiring
