MY LAST WEEK IN CHIANG MAI, THAILAND

APR 2 - APR 8

sickness & health

The week started with a reader reaching out to me on Facebook.

We met up for burgers and beers. She said she was interested in the digital nomad lifestyle.

Since she showed a talent for drawing and stated her passion for food, I recommended that she go around to her favorite Chiang Mai restaurants and offer to make them menus and/or fliers for FREE (for the first three clients) to build her experience and testimonials.

But I also pointed out that the digital nomad lifestyle might not be for her after she told me she doesn't like eating alone.

Being a digital nomad/freelancer can be lonelier than working in an office.

Plus she was graduating from college in a few weeks and I think it's generally a good idea to work for someone else before deciding to work for yourself.

And finally just because she gets a more traditional job doesn't mean she can't start making strides on the side.

During the week I attended a talk in the co-working space about "How to Become an Epic Freelancer".

I thought 90% of the information was common sense, but that's not a knock at the speaker. If anything it was comforting.

Effective immediately I will now offer digital marketing consultation (Email me at founder@livetochallenge.com if you want me to generate more revenue for your business).

I thought long and hard about what services I can offer businesses and here's what I realized...

I'm not a specialist.

I'm not the guy who will get your business to an A+ in any one digital department.

If you want the best graphic design - hire a graphic designer.

If you want the best website design - hire a website designer.

If you want the best SEO, email marketing, social media marketing, content blogging, etc... you can hire a specialist in each of these departments and run up a high bill.

But I'm the guy you go to if you want to take your overall online business presence to an A because I can do all-of-the-above and more.

On Friday, I introduced myself to a fellow digital nomad. It's always interesting to hear how a nomad makes his money because I have yet to meet any two digital nomads that earn it the same way.

For example, he built a site where consumers can buy exercise equipment directly from Australian suppliers and he takes a small percentage off each purchase.

We got drinks at the infamous Zoes. It’s like an outdoor shopping mall of bars with each bar playing a different type of music. When those bars closed we took his scooter to a nearby bar.

We played some pool and drunkenly argued about the existence of a god. I made the simulation argument.

We also met an english gypsy who was wanted for a crime back in England.

I asked, "Murder?"

He said he couldn't say.

He told me about how both his parents died in a car crash and how he grew up in a caravan of mobile homes where they never stayed in one location for more than 2 weeks at a time and had to rob just to get by.

I empathized with him because I've never lived in one place for more than 3 years and knowing how hard that can be as a kid I can't imagine how hard it was for him.

On Saturday, I flew to Cambodia where I'll be living for at least the next 30 days.
