Life As a Traveling Entrepreneur: Visiting More Than 85+ Countries
Hey there, it’s Mike Swigunski here and I’m the founder of global career and best-selling author of Global Career: How to Work Anywhere and Travel Forever.
Over the past ten years, I’ve been working and traveling in more than 85 different countries, and now I help others do the same thing.
My last position as a remote worker was flexible; I could work whatever hours I chose. However, I was still working for somebody else; I was still building somebody else’s wealth. At that point, I decided that the only way that I’m going to get my version of success is by being my own boss creating my own businesses. Now I have six different revenue streams for online businesses working online have for every drawback. There are ten positives as far as the positives. One of the biggest ones is geo arbitrage, which is essentially earning in u.s dollars and spending in local currency.
Because you’re able to take advantage of GEO arbitrage, you’re able to earn more money, save a more significant portion of that money, and increase your lifestyle while living overseas for a fraction of the price. The other significant benefit about working online living overseas is it’s just my passion like I love traveling I love being able to connect with people from other backgrounds different cultures, and living overseas provides me a much easier way to do that because I’m able to travel from specific hubs of the world.
Visit other countries that I would never have explored if I was living in the united states. It’s just given me a lot more freedom to kind of build a work-life balance that I’m looking to create every day, so I think if you want to become an online entrepreneur, there’s a lot of people that they don’t have the skills or they don’t have the revenue or income to make it happen so if you’re in that position finding a remote job can be one of the first stages to really kind of progressing towards entrepreneurship, and this is probably the best way because you can immediately see a job with a company that gives you the flexibility you’re able to kind of have a consistent income where you can build something on the side.
Try to find somebody who’s two to three years ahead of you like if you’re seeing somebody that’s 20 years earlier, it’s going to be too far off, so I think the right time is two to three years on of the direction and place that you kind of want to be in life with your business personally or professionally so find those people find a coach find somebody who’s going to help you get to that same spot and the thing is they’ll help you get there so much faster than if you try to do it on your own the main reason I decided to write it was to inspire others. I’m getting you to know screenshots and messages every other day and reviews from people who found inspiration by reading my book and decided to start their own global careers. That’s by far the most rewarding thing for me is helping other people.
