Joining me today is someone who has lived in over 40 countries, who had a cat that had more Facebook likes than his company page, and who is known as the Nomad CEO, Eli David, co-founder of StartUpBlink.com & founder of BecomeNomad.com.
Today we get into the Startup Diaries. Fabian regales us of tales of working from the road in South America with his entire company while filming the stories of entrepreneurs along the way.
We discuss how to manage client expectations when you’re working from the road and the challenges that Fabian and his company faced while working from a Jeep throughout South America.
However working while traveling taught Fabian something extremely important, it’s better to work efficiently than to work a lot. You do, after all, have to have time to see things while you’re traveling! He’s even kind enough to share some of his tips for efficiency with us today.
While we may have spoiled his travel mishap in the first half of the show, Fabian brings up something else very important to talk about today.
Many of us chase the Location Independent lifestyle, but it’s important to realize why you’re doing it, and what you’re going to do with the freedom afforded when you get it.
Fabian Dittrich is well known for his awesome show, The Startup Diaries.
But how did he get there? What started the journey to the filming of such an awesome show?
Turns out, it’s not what you think.
He got Malaria.
And he’s thankful he did.
Today Fabian joins us to chat about how he went from Malaria to a series of life events that lead to him taking his entire company on a road trip through South America filming the Startup Diaries along the way.
On his journey, he heard the standard job advice (decided it wasn’t for him), and figured out that one of the best ways for him to make decisions was to base them on whether or not something would make a good story.
So, what do you think? Do YOU think it was a good story?
