    Flourishing Abroad with Christine Job

    Flourishing Abroad with Christine Job

    To live—and really flourish—abroad, cultivating self-trust is critical in finding your footing in a new place. Living in another country can come with a range of difficulties, but that’s just part of the challenge. It’s not a balm to fix all your problems, but it does provide an opportunity for self-actualization.
    In this episode, I am joined by Christine Job, a business strategist currently living in Spain. We talk about how taking a different path gives you the space to choose what you really want, accountability as a form of self-care, and how living abroad can be a pathway to wellness. You’ll get her insight into what it’s really like living abroad and facing challenges with language differences, a new sense of identity, and learning to surrender. 
    In this episode:
    What brought Christine to Spain and kept her there How self-care and betting on yourself doesn’t always look the way you’d expect  The biggest benefits of living abroad and having an international experience How living abroad is a pathway to wellness How nomad living opens you to a sense of surrender  How this kind of lifestyle shifts your sense of identity The language barriers of living abroad The biggest surprises of living in Spain How you can hold joy and grief at the same time

    Adventures in Parenting and Business with Ami Dehne

    Adventures in Parenting and Business with Ami Dehne

    For many parents, reconciling that new role with our identity as adventurers and travelers can lead to a whole new kind of journey. It can take a while to find our travel legs as a parent and discover what “adventure” looks like for our family. But as I always say, there’s no “right” way to do any of this, and whatever works for you is perfect.  
    In this episode, I’m joined by mother and business owner Ami Dehne for a conversation all about the realities of our Nomadtopia with young children. We explore what it’s been like to incorporate children into our lives and travels, and Ami shares her thoughts on finding adventure closer to home. Plus, we chat about creating businesses that allow us to live our lives to the fullest.
     
    In this episode:
    Why traveling with kids, especially babies, is a major adjustment How to find adventure closer to home and adjust for your children Defining “Nomadtopia” for yourself and crafting a unique life for your family How to live, travel, and parent with intention How accepting your identity as a parent can open you up to new kinds of adventures Why you should focus on simplicity and consistency in your business How to build a business that lets you be location-independent

    Identity, Belonging, and Grief with Megan Norton

    Identity, Belonging, and Grief with Megan Norton

    Identity is often closely tied to our location: where we were born, where we grew up, where we live now. For those of us living nomadic lives, however, that sense of identity can feel out of reach. As we transition from place to place, we experience the grief of leaving our old selves behind and the excitement of stepping into a new world. But how can you find a sense of belonging when you don’t belong to any one place?
     
    In this episode, I’m joined by third culture kid educator and author Megan Norton. She’s sharing her experience as an adult third culture kid, how her identity informs her work, and how those of us living highly mobile lives can find belonging wherever we are in the world.
     
    In this episode:
    What a third culture kid is and how it affects people in adulthood How those of us living nomadic lives experience a similar blend of cultures and places The benefits and challenges that come with being a third culture kid How identity and diversity are shifting in our interconnected world Processing the grief and loss that comes with a nomadic or highly mobile lifestyle How to thrive in a nomadic lifestyle full of transition How “belonging” can mean different things to different people Using your multicultural experience as a strength in the professional world Building your own community as a nomad or third culture kid   For full show notes, resources, and links go to www.nomadtopia.com/187.

    Real Estate Investing with Sarah Weaver

    Real Estate Investing with Sarah Weaver

    When most of us think of real estate investing, we think of late-night phone calls from tenants, constant repairs, and huge price tags. But in reality, the barrier to entry in the real estate world is much lower than we think it is, and with the right systems in place, it can become a fantastic form of (mostly) passive income, even for full-time travelers.
     
    In this episode, I was joined by nomadic real estate investor Sarah Weaver who shared how she started a career in real estate investment while traveling the globe.
     
    In this episode:
    Buying your first property as a real estate investor How COVID-19 affected Sarah’s path  The benefits of creating passive income as a nomad Common misconceptions about real estate investing How the nomadic lifestyle can actually help your finances How to manage your properties from anywhere in the world What to consider and look for when investing in rental properties

Very solid pod

I get annoyed by a lot of other digital nomad podcasts, but not this one. Amy is a good interviewer who asks thoughtful questions and then sits back to listen. I’ll continue to listen.
