Ep 100: 100 Podcasts in 100 Days
Recording 100 podcasts in 100 days was more than just putting on a show for you. Hopefully you've been able to learn quite a bit from these episodes, but the part that excites me the most is due to my own challenge. After years of talking about doing a podcast, I finally decided to actually talk on a podcast, and publish it. Things have changed considerably since starting 3 months ago. Taking on this challenge was pretty difficult, but the reward you feel from actually accomplishing the goal. I didn't always feel like doing it, and there were a ton of complications. It would have been easy to walk away when things went wrong, but I'm the type of person who says they're going to do something, and it just happens. But it's still a challenge. Hear how I encourage myself to follow through with some discipline in order to complete tasks I wasn't even sure was possible. Hear what's coming next and why it's important to have the discipline to complete you

Life in Playa del Carmen for Digital Nomads
Playa del Carmen Mexico is one of the better digital nomad hotspots, and is where I am now. The wifi situation has not been ideal in my experience, but some people have found better connections. Playa is about 15–20% more expensive than it was for me in Bangkok, but I've been eating out at fancier places, and doing new stuff since I only just arrived. Listen to today's podcast to find out the rest of my thoughts on Playa and staying here long-term. Stay emPowered, Beck

Circling the Drain and How to Break the Cycle
Explaining yesterday's Pessimism episode (podcast episode? My own episode?) Yesterday a lot of my fears and insecurities were bubbling to the surface. I know we all do this to some degree or another, and I'm a believer in dealing with it, letting it out, and getting it handled. Almost every time it happens, it is related to comparing myself to others or something else I think I should be doing. Handling it will get you past it and back to normal, and I cover some of the ways I deal with these momentary lapses in today's podcast. Stay emPowered, Beck

The Pessimist and Self-Doubt
Does your brain make itself crazy too? Despite all evidence of past and current successes, our brains can find the flaws, make us feel weak and worthless, and fail to help us get things done. Today you can listen to a personal self-therapy session and hear how my brain is working as I record this episode, and how saying all this stuff out loud actually helps make it better to help me realize how silly our brains are. Hear how negative self-talk and general madness of that cycle can be dealt with so life can go on without interruption. Stay emPowered, Beck

Accountability for Fun & Profit
If you’re easily distracted from the things you were planning by the newer shinier thing that pops up, and the thing you were planning never ends up happening, you might need a way to stay accountable (like me). It’s why I started this public 100 podcasts in 100 days project. I could have kept it to myself as a personal goal, but knowing myself, I would have faffed it off at a much earlier episode than this one at 94. This one was a lot of work, and I would have easily quit or been distracted and felt the shame of quitting early had I kept my standard low on this, or kept it quiet. I announced it publically, and the quitshame would have been far worse if everyone else knew too. Listen to today’s podcast to hear how I’ve been dealing with my own accountability, and how you can get help with accountability of your own. Stay emPowered, Beck

Finding the Real You
Stuff can happen in life, and usually does. I made a video the other day with the intention of going into a totally different topic, ended up with a monologue about how I've had some of that stuff happen in my life recently.

Listen to how you too can get back to finding the real You, and where you want to be. Learn how my brain works, and yours might as well. Don't stay small and safe, when you can be the real you.

Busy-ness is not a Business
Making decisions and taking actions can be a good thing. A lot can be said for listening to all the things, reading all the things, and learning all the things…and even taking some initial actions. But very little gets said about that after the "getting started" phase of building a business. Things will get difficult, but it's part of the journey. There are a lot of aspects to a business, and there are tons of things that can keep you busy, but are merely distractions. Hear how it's showing up in my business life, and how I deal with it to get back on track with the important things (like making money!) Stay emPowered, Beck

The Facade
Talking with my friend Libby last night, we got into a chat about people who put up a facade. Usually online in various places (like Tinder) that only shows the best parts of their life and to make them look good, but isn't authentic Authenticity is a lot easier than pretending to be something you're not. It's best to just be yourself so that the you that people see is the real you. Be authentic from day one and don't give a crap what anyone thinks. Stay emPowered, Beck

Why Digital Nomads Travel
In talking with many other Digital Nomads, we seem to tend to all go to the same places, hang out in groups and packs, and general do the me too kind of travel. A friend asked me why I travel, and I tried to give my answer as to why I do it. I travel because it gives me the familiar feeling of being an outsider.

What is Imposter Syndrome and How to Overcome It
You haven't heard of Imposter Syndrome? You most likely have it, as most people seem to have it to some degree. It's that thing where you feel no matter how successful you are at something (often business), you don't really believe you're "good enough" and people are going to find out you're a fraud, and you'll be exposed as a charlatan, and you'll lose everything. Seems healthy enough? Ironically, the people who don't seem to have this issue are usually the ones who really should! Listen to today's podcast for ways to lessen this nonsense in your brain so you can figure out that you actually are good enough and deserving. Stay emPowered, Beck

Therapy is for All of Us
Today I wanted to talk about the necessity of therapy and having an outlet when living as a Digital Nomad or an entrepreneur and business owner. It's often a lonely life and no matter where you go, you go with you. Without an outlet or outside source of a place to get things sorted out with someone else rather than yourself alone is invaluable. I would encourage you to reach out to someone outside your normal sphere. Whatever works for you…whether a therapist, mentor, coach, or other kind of person who doesn't have a biased interest (such as a family member)…reach out to someone you can turn to for help sorting through "stuff" for optimal mental and emotional assistance. Even laying the thoughts out there and getting your stuff out can help you process that stuff and keep you on the right track. Stay emPowered, Beck

Simplicity in Your Business Offers
An impromptu episode from the beach in Playa del Carmen Mexico. Joined by previous NomadMe Podcast guest Mariza Montiero! (Episode 55: Cryptocurrency) Getting stuck doing the same thing the same way is a situation I've been keeping myself in with some of my businesses. I use NomadFly as an example of how I need to simplify the offer and strategy, rather than the complications I've been adding for a variety of reasons. Mindset and copywriting have a ton to do with this also, and you can hear in this episode how this new change has really lit the fire again after getting into too much of a routine back in Bangkok.

Finding Your People
This one took me a bit of time to figure out, but it is of priceless benefit to my life once I started to work it out. Being nomadic and moving from place to place makes building a typical local community difficult. Since your local changes from place to place, it certainly isn’t a traditional lifestyle. It is critically important to have a community of your people for the times when things won’t quite go your way and you just need support. I’ve been fortunate that I worked it out imperfectly, but have my group of friends (family), so that when this latest breakup happened, I had my people to go to rather than sitting alone in my room. Go out and make yourself approachable to be sure you build up your core group of your people before you really need to. Stay emPowered, Beck

Traveling as a Lesbian
Travel to most countries doesn’t really matter much, but when traveling as a lesbian, you do need to exercise a bit of caution in many cases. I would never discourage anyone from travel, but as a single female traveller, you will want to be wary of who you tell about your situation. Most regular people aren’t used to the idea of a woman traveling alone, and I get asked about my husband or boyfriend all the time. Sometime it doesn’t matter, but in most cases, a little extra discretion about who you tell is all you need to otherwise make this point of travel a non-issue. Stay emPowered, Beck

Creepy Men you Meet as a Digital Nomad
There’s a situation that comes up among female digital nomads. It’s a subject that gets talked about quite a bit, and that’s being approached by creepy men. Not all men, of course. But it happens quite a bit. It’s not something that should prevent you from traveling at all, but it is something that seems to happen more often than back at home.  It’s a conversation that needs to continue, as we continue to blend into different cultures and groups so that women can feel safer and respected, men can learn how not to be creepy, and even ways to offer up assistance, if needed.

Why Digital Nomads are Often Minimalist Travelers
Regular vacation travelers pack up and drag around luggage sometimes bigger than they are.  Doing all this then moving it all to the new place every couple of days is tiring, even for people only traveling only a few weeks.

Setting up a Bank Account in Thailand
When I first arrived in Thailand, I lost my bank card immediately. It was a huge problem. I just always thought I wouldn't be able to set up a Thai account, so I didn't for about two years. Now I have accounts in Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, the USA and the UK. And working on more! I think it's a lot easier to just have a local account for things so I set them up all the time. Honestly if you want something you will find a way to do it. And if you don't want it enough you will find a lot of excuses. But getting an account in Thailand is easy, it just takes persistence.

Being Specific
In all the digital nomad groups I'm in (and there are a lot of them) I find that most of the questions are super generic "how do I get started" "how do I make a shopify store" "what is the best place to go" etc. I mean come on, how vague can you get? It's obvious these people are doing NOTHING and just talking. Someone actually building a business would ask something super specific, like, I am getting $1.20 likes on m Facebook page, how do I bring that number down?" or "I've applied for a Thai visa, how long will it take to get approved?" --> they are actuall DOING something instead of just talking about it.

The Best Place to Start as a Digital Nomad
In today's episode, I'm going to talk about the best place to start your life as a Digital Nomad. For those people who are just starting out: just got a passport, never traveled long-term, or been far from home, there are some things you should consider. You probably shouldn't go far from "home" straight away, depending on the type of person you are. But if you're more adventurous than that and confident you'll manage, I recommend Thailand as a starting Nomad spot. 1- Thailand has some of the best tourist infrastructure in the world. This makes things like transportation super-easy and all over the place. The signs are often in English, the visa system is relatively easy (relatively). 2- It's also very cheap, which takes a lot of stress off of building up your business, especially if you're just starting out. The internet is fast and cheap. Food, accomodations, and they have just about anything you'd think you would only be able to get back home.

But that is not the way things work. You can become awesome at anything you choose. Find the thing you're interested in doing? What do you do when nobody's around, when no money is involved, and you're doing it because you love doing it? Do that thing. Put in the work, and you can get great at it. Listen to today's episode to learn more about making your own aptitudes. Stay emPowered, Beck

Ep 51: Goals and Realistic Strategies for them
What happens when you reach goals of your dream day is that you feel like you need write more of them. But after achieving my dream day as I'd written it down, I also wanted to careful about becoming complacent. The dream day is really great, but there are still issues. So I had to come up with new goals. Especially as a Digital Nomad spending a lot of time overseas, planning your dream day becomes more difficult. And often when you think you want something...maybe desperate for it...often, when you get it, it's not what you thought it would be. It's amazing, but at it's really important that you have goals at every stage. I really want to know what your dream day looks like. Give today's episode a listen to learn how you can work toward your goals, reach them, and make constant progress. Stay emPowered, Beck

Empowering Beliefs
I believe that every self help organization or religion in the world is just a framework for belief distribution. It doesn't matter what the teachings are, everyone is being primed for some sort of beliefs. It's up to you to choose which beliefs you want to support. It's your brain and you can fill it with whatever you want! For me I choose to believe in positivity and empowerment. Some people choose to believe the excuses that pop up. (Note, people who choose to believe the good stuff also get excuses that pop into our heads, we just choose to ignore them.) What will you choose? Stay emPowered, Beck

Keeping Funnels Simple
In this episode, I share an example I got from Scott Oldford about the most basic way you can structure a funnel.

Weakness --> Strength
I finished an interview and felt so awkward, I had to make an episode. I feel like I suck at talking to humans (I'm not saying I'm any better at talking to plants, animals or aliens just FYI) and I get really uncomfortable in interviews. Haha. That's why I started a podcast! If you suck at something, that's OK. There's no inherent meaning in that. You CAN get better. No one was born an expert. Keep learning, keep practicing, keep getting out of your comfort zone. At least... that's what I'm doing. Let's see if my 100th episode is any better than my first one. Stay emPowered, Beck

Organizing your funnel
I watched Scott Oldford talk about funnels, and I realized a lot of people make the mistake of adding loads of different upsells and overcomplicating everything in their funnel. Not only that -- they are doing multiple funnels in multiple niches at the same time, before one has even taken off. I am guilty of this myself. It's really fun to start new projects, and not as fun to keep pushing the ones that have outlived their excitement. But Russell Brunson said not to move on to a new funnel until the first one has made a million dollars. Tweak or offer, tweak your copy, tweak your funnel -- don't overcomplicate it or move on to something else. Stay emPowered, Beck

Sharing Your Vision
There are a few schools of thought on sharing your vision. Sometimes all people will do is talk about it, and never take any action. Some say to write it down and schedule it. I think it's also important to let the people around you know what's going to be happening. The reason you might be worried about telling people is simple (and there's only one reason.) It's that you might fail. What if I tell people my vision and then it doesn't happen? I'll look like an idiot. Well then, you better make it happen. These things aren't left to chance. YOU have the power to make it a reality. In this episode, I talk about sharing your vision with your team, the people who work for and with you, so they know what they're driving toward. Few people are excited about doing a spreadsheet. It's more exciting if they know that this spreadsheet is an integral part of your sponsorship strategy and that they are responsible for its success.

Yoga
On my recent trip to New York, we were walking a LOT. (Living in Bangkok it's hard to justify the Uber prices in NY! Just saying.) As we walked, I noticed that my back started to get really sore. Like really sore. I'd have to bend over or sit down to feel better. LAME! I mean I'm 33! (I know, I look good.) Anyways lately, I've been sore getting out of bed too. I figure it's all the working on the laptop and not exercising. And since I just heard Garrett White talk about his daily 4 parts of his morning routine, I figured, how the heck am I going to get myself to exercise? I figured a light yoga practice daily was the way to go. I feel much better when I do yoga. I'm by no means good at it or even that interested in yoga itself, but it makes me feel good and my back feels normal again, so here we are. If you're looking for something light to do, I recommend Adrien's Youtube 30 day challenge. I just randomly pick a day and do it. It's the perfect length and

Power of Systems
When I used to go to the gym (lol) I would go in, put my stuff in a locker and walk into the main workout area. I would stop, look around, and think "hmm what do I feel like doing..." Bad idea. As a result, I would run for 5 minutes (until I thought I was tired) do a few random weight exercises with no idea what I was doing, and feel good about a few leg presses. Finally, I would go somewhere and do 10 pushups. Or 7. Whatever I felt like before my will gave in. It wasn't until I had a personal trainer come to my condo in Bangkok and give me exactly the exercises I needed to do, and exactly how many times to do them, AND exactly what weight I should do them with, that I figured out how to actually work out properly. I'd walk in and know, I needed to do 3 sets of 8 of this arm thing, then the same of that arm thing. I knew exactly which weights to use. I knew what to do next at all times. And when it was all done, I could leave. I didn't have to wonder abou

Focusing on One Thing
There are so many things I got out of FHL. The biggest (well one of the biggest was to decide on one funnel and commit to it. Stop faffing around and give something a chance to work. It's alot like business ideas. I used to have millions and jump around between them, but there's no chance they'll work because I didn't give them enough time. Your first funnels will fail. Probably. So re-do them. Tweak them. Fix the traffic, the messaging, the offer. Chances are you can fix it. But don't run around looking for a home run right away.

30 Podcasts in 30 Days - What I've Learned
Just start. You’re never going to be ready so stop overthinking it. Perfection is not the goal, the goal is action and experience. Take imperfect actions and get data. I don’t love the idea of doing these for the next year. But I’d like to do one with different series. Like sessions. But I’ll do at least 100 of these and see where it takes me. I suck at talking to people. But I suck less now than I did 30 days ago. So, it’s improvement and I’m proud of that. When you decide that something is going to happen, and take action, it’s decided. There’s no going back or giving up. This means your ultimate goals can be guaranteed if you have a plan and make that decision to do it no matter what excuses come up. Some people are assholes. I’m not going to listen to them anymore. I’m going to do my own thing and stop worrying about what people think. 10 episodes were too many to launch with.

7 Day Startup By Dan Norris (Book Review)
This book is really important to me. Not because it holds inside it the secret of the universe - it doesn't. Instead, it simplified down all the things I had been thinking (literally for YEARS,) got me out of my own head and started me on the path to my own business. If you're like I was, and paralysed by inertia because you can't decide on what direction to take or what to do next, this book is a must read for anyone starting out. Stay in your head, you're dead.

Your Digital Nomad Value Ladder
Once you have built an audience, you basically have unlimited options of how to help them solve their problems. Everyone has problems, and ultimately you want your products and services to solve those pain points for them, so you become their go-to in your industry. Too many times I see nomads mad or upset because their ONE product isn’t selling. Try repurposing it, fool! What else could it be? For example if you have a video course. Could you sell a smaller, shorter “starter” version? Could you sell only the audios? Could you put it together with someone else’s product and sell it as a bundle? Could you perhaps sell a transcription, or upsell to people who already bought it with a 1-1 consultation, or maybe you could make 8 mini products that branch out from that course, addressing smaller problems that the audience still has. Perhaps you can interview people on the topic and add the interviews to the video course to add value? There are a

Meditation
One thing I’ve started doing lately is being mindful. I wouldn’t consider myself a stereotypical non meat eating lesbian who takes meditation seriously, but hey I guess that’s who I am. Practicing mindfulness is something that a lot of the people who I admire, set aside time for during the day. One of the reasons I like to meditate is because my days get pretty hectic. I’m “on” a lot of the day and my mind is going at a million miles an hour. It’s really helpful to set aside 5-10 minutes a couple of times a day just to sit and reset my brain. Literally I just sit somewhere quiet or put in headphones and pull my brain back from wherever it’s stretched out to. It’s kind of like a reset and it’s been really helpful for me. You can use the Calm app or headspace app or anything you want really, I find I still do need some direction while I meditate or I get super distracted. You can actually feel yourself come back to a center. What’s really important is that you clear your mind as much

Picking a Niche for your Digital Nomad Business
This is a fun episode because I remember when I first started my first project, NomadFly. In the previous podcast episode yesterday, I spoke about overthinking and this is one of the things I was overthinking for REAL. The problem was, I thought that I would have to marry my first topic. Like if I chose it I would have to be known as “the travel agent” forever, and I don’t want to be a travel agent. That’s why I stopped being one! What I didn’t understand is that there are so many angles to take in any niche, so many products and different ways to do something, that whatever I tried would just be the beginning, the first steps, which would just move me, kind of into the arena. Then I would be able to play. But if you don’t take those first few steps you just keep standing on the outside, never participating and always feeling that feeling, that you’re not involved, you’re not playing the game. So my advice is the same as Dan Norris’ advice in the book 7 day startup - t

Overthinking Your Nomadic Life
Digital nomads always overthink before they get started - so: Let’s talk overthinking, which is a concept near and dear to my heart. I honestly believed, when I was poor and had the cold sweats in my apartment in Bangkok a few years ago, that it mattered what I chose to start with and I had to get it right from day one or else I’d be a huge failure. In fact I think that the more I overthought, the more I overthought…. It got into kind of a downward spiral that made me scared to do anything at all in case it didn’t work. I am aware that doesn’t make much sense right now, it sounds crazy. But the saying is true - “Stay in your head, you’re dead” The ONLY thing to do is to take action. The ONLY thing that you can do to move forward, is take a step. Standing still and thinking will not work. Yes the future will be uncertain. But no amount of thinking is going to get you certain. All that will happen is you will waste precious time. Stay

Nomadic Proof of Onward Travel, For Free
When I first became nomadic, and some airline staff asked me for proof I was going to leave the country, I would buy a cheap ticket to a nearby country and then not use it. Ugh. As time went on, a few services popped up. Flyonward, Bestonwardticket, Returnflights.net... but they all had issues. They'd take to long to deliver (I was usually in a hurry) I couldn't open the ticket on my phone (who has time to get out their laptop and find internet when they're trying to check in?) The customer service wasn't responsive I had to pay every time I wanted a fake ticket! Some people recommend using Photoshop but I'm not photoshopically inclined... So I decided I'd get a small software product made, that would handle the problems I'd experienced with other sites. BOOM: Nomadproof was born. Digital nomads rejoice!

Talking vs Doing
What I'm about to tell you is 100% true, and I'm 100% not happy about it lol. I left New Zealand in 2013, to embark on my great nomadic journey. Of course I was going to Chiang Mai! I had no idea what I was doing, or what I would do for money, but I figured it would take care of itself. After all, I'd read the 4 hour work week, and it was easy enough, right? WRONG. I spent 4 months in Chiang Mai telling people all the stuff I wanted to do (start a coliving space, start remote work retreats, it went on and on) but I never actually DID anything. I talked a lot but the action wasn't there. Most people at least take SOME action even if it's not that much or it's the wrong action, but I was legit not doing ANYTHING. Haha.

Ep#17: What is a Winner?
We always worship winners. People who seem to be able to accomplish superhuman feats. People who beat out the competition to come first. Especially people who seem to turn everything they touch into gold. But we sell ourselves short. It doesn't matter what other people are doing, the experiences they have that are hidden from us so it looks as if they are magically able in some way that we are not. I think being a winner is about pushing through hard things. Not giving in to the thoughts that tell you to give up, that this will never work, that it's not for you, that this should be easier. The truth is it's not easy. It's such a mental game and if you can win that game, you're officially a winner. People who keep pushing are absolutely winners. People who see what's going on around them and refuse to give up, refuse to stop, refuse to be affected by drama, by bullshit, by self doubt. People who decide something, and then do it. Every day.

Are You a Morning Person?
Almost every morning (hey I'm not perfect) I get out of bed at 5:30. I wouldn't have called myself a morning person actually, but like anything, I'm no fixed way and I've taught myself to make it happen - here's why. I get all my morning routines done and get started working at about 7:30. When this all goes smoothly, I normally get en entire days work done by 10am. I then feel amazing and stop work at 1pm or 2pm so I can reward myself and enjoy the rest of the day. I have had to create systems for this, it's not easy to force myself to wake up at that time. One thing that helps is that I'm MOSTLY excited about what I'm going to work on that day - and if it's not that exciting, I reframe it. I look forward to finishing tasks so I can move on to the next task. Some people are adamant they work best late at night and like sleeping in, and that's OK!

The Magic of 10 Ideas a Day
I originally heard about this idea from James Altucher. (My fave author and probably one of my fave humans.) James says to write 10 ideas a day because it stretches your "idea muscle" - that is, it helps you be more creative and problem solve when you really need to problem solve. I used this practice and the practice of daily gratitude, to get out of the funk that I was in in the middle of 2016. Every night I'd go to sleep crying and every day I'd be sweating the "fear sweats" in my tiny Bangkok apartment. I had no money and as far as I could tell, no way of getting any. I kept telling myself that no one cared about me and that I was all alone in the world. For the last few months I had been contemplating if anyone would miss me if I disappeared. I started a small daily practice and things started to change. I was able to start thinking outside the box, take action on a few of the ideas and really realize that I was not stupid or useless or any of

The Easiest way to Make Money as a Digital Nomad
There are a metric crap ton of ways to make money as a digital nomad. One of the fastest ways and one of the easiest ways, I believe, is to sell information, that you already have in your head. (Or someone else has already provided.) Info products are good because you just need to package up the information you have on a topic (like indoor gardening for example, knitting cat costumes, or repairing a motorcycle.) Then you find people who are looking for that skill or information, and show them how your product solves their problem or is what they're looking for. Stay emPowered, Beck

In this episode, (recorded while driving from Pattaya to Bangkok via taxi) I talk about why people often put things off and off - I, for example, didn't start this podcast back in 2011 when I got the art done, then again in 2017 when I couldn't get the intro right. Starting is the key to success and here's a few minutes of me talking about that. Stay emPowered, Beck

Motivation
Motivating yourself should be a self generated practice -- not something you just wait for. You are in charge of putting yourself in the right state, the zone, whatever you call it -- to get done the things you need to do, when you need to do them. Make a calendar, and plan your days - then stick to the plan. Stay emPowered, Beck

Negative Self Talk
Like it or not, there's a voice in your head. Everyone has one. That voice is made up of all your experiences, neurons that fire when triggered by situations that remind you of something that happened before. That voice is not the truth - it's just thoughts that come and go like waves. Good mood, bad mood, offended, excited... it's all just neurons. Luckily, you have another voice. That voice is you. Choosing not to be offended, choosing to look on the bright side, choosing to work even though you don't feel like it. If we all listened to that first voice, we'd never get anything done and we'd be slaves to our own vices. Luckily, you're not a slave. You get to choose - so choose wisely. Stay emPowered, Beck
