“Nomad Summit” is a conference held in Chiang Mai, Thailand, each year, that attracts hundreds of people interested in the digital nomad life. Johnny also founded the “Nomad Coffee” where dozens of digital entrepreneurs gather each Friday afternoon in Chiang Mai, to network and learn from each other. He has podcasts, various online courses, does coaching, blogging, writes books, among many other interesting projects.
I admire him for his hard work, for always sharing all that he learns and for constantly trying to be a better version of himself. This way, he’s been helping thousands of people to do the same.
I first met Johnny in Chiang Mai, Thailand, in 2015, while working at Punspace, my favorite coworking there. I was just starting this podcast when I attended “Nomad Summit” conference with around a hundred people (last year it was over 400 people) and I really enjoyed it. So I wanted to hear from him the story behind it all. And here you’ll have it. We talk about all the “sides” of Johnny and you can see how humble and giving he can be.
*It took me 18 months to publish this, I owe Johnny and my followers my apologies for taking so long. Shame on me! The truth is that I had to prioritize other projects before I could come back to the podcast that I love producing. But the good news is that it’s done. Right? So enjoy!
“I think a lot of people spend too much time focusing on how to do it perfectly versus just getting started”
“Good Karma exists. The easiest way to make 1MM dollars is to help 1MM people”
“Not everyone was meant to be an entrepreneur”
“Even if I had to start over, I could do this again”
“If you have a job now, spend 2 months mastering it, and if you still don’t like it, change it!”
We talk about:
* why Thailand?
* the difference between Koh tao and koh lanta for diving
* the many “sides” of him (Fighting, diving, podcasting, coaching, events, drop shipping, udemy courses, amazon books, etc)
* why share his income?
* experience coaching groups to drop shipping
* How he approaches his projects – ex “friday nomad coffees”
* Nomad Summit evolution – from free event to a few people to 400 people
