On today’s episode, we’re speaking with Nancy Vogel from Family on Bikes. Nancy started traveling 30 years ago as a peaceful volunteer in Honduras. Since then, she has backpacked around South America, spent years teaching on the Navajo Nation, as well as several stints in Ethiopia, Taiwan and Malaysia.
On this week’s episode, we’re speaking with Kimberly and Joe of Young Fulltimers. Kimberly and Joe began their journey the day after they were married, and they soon found out that it was harder to earn money on the road than they anticipated. One of the major ways that digital nomads earn money is through affiliate marketing, travel blogging and the writing industry in general. You’ll hear Kimberly and Joe talk all about the challenges of affiliate marketing and why it might not be right for everyone.
Today’s episode features an interview with a really crazy family. No, really. Craig and Bryanna Royal run a website called CrazyFamilyAdventure.com. Craig and Bryanna are parents to 4 young kids and 2 big dogs who sold their home and most of their possessions to travel full-time in an RV. On this week’s episode, you’ll hear the Royals talk all about what it means to live a “crazy family lifestyle”. They’ll also discuss freedom and flexibility, and how those two things are not necessarily one and the same.
On today’s podcast, you’re going to be hearing from Mike Cooney of CooneyWorldAdventures.com. Six years ago, Mike and his wife Catrell sold nearly everything they owned to take their three teenage sons on an adventure around the world. They wanted their sons to see the world and have a hands-on immersion education before heading off to college. This idea of taking a “Gap Year” to travel before beginning higher education isn’t new, but the Cooneys decision to do so as a family is a very unique and exciting way to do it.
This week’s episode is a little different for us, as we are going to be sharing two different interviews with digital nomads who have taken outside the box approaches to making money and living a nomadic lifestyle. First, you’ll be hearing from Reinder de Vries and his partner Geerjte, who will talk about their website LearnAppMaking.com, a resource for people who are aspiring to develop their own apps (which can be a great source of location-independent income). After that, you will hear from Marcela Fernandez, who will be talking about how she is using the techniques she has learned while operating her educational tour service, OnBoard to build a learning community for nomadic families.
