Tropical MBAIt is very difficult to be a U.S. citizen and stay in one place (abroad) for a long amount of time because of the visa situation.

People on the Internet need good people for customer service, for podcast editing, for Internet marketing.

Location independence is a mindset and a cash flow issue.

There is a difference between corporate people and entrepreneurs.

Get an apprenticeship with the owner of a business.

Optimize for yourself.

Part of spiritual balance is teaching people things.

Tropical MBAWhen you’re traveling set expectations with the people that are at your office.

In your office you want to feel needed.

After you figure out you’re not needed anymore you want to be wanted.

In the future people will understand a lot better than in the past what it means to be physically present.

The CEO has got to be the leader.

Own as much of your time as possible.

There are all kinds of opportunities out the door.

Try to own the creative hours.

If you feel like it is time to get out the door then get out the door.

If you haven’t been to a place yourself you’re not qualified or in the position to tell somebody else to go there.

Airlines can change their rewards without notice.

The complexity is the opportunity.

Do two to four rounds of credit card applications a year to build up a stack of miles.

The offers the banks are giving change a lot.

Maximize the points you get for every signup.

Website: Boarding Area

For most business class tickets you’re looking for 50,000 to 70,000 one-way and 100,000 to 120,000 round trip.

Go direct to the airline for info on their rewards program.

Just because you can buy a ticket for a particular flight it doesn’t mean you can use your miles for that flight.

There is no simple answer to fuel charges.

Award Wallet aggregates your balances.

Try to accumulate different types of points. Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket.

You don’t have to have a ton of spending to acquire a lot of miles.

Very few people are catering to the digital nomads.

Get out of the hamster wheel of time, money, time, money.

You need to have systems and people in place.

Offices are a thing of the past.

If you are a distributed team have meetups.

If you’re not interested in the journey you’re going to be disappointed.

If success is defined by the journey then you’re going to be okay.

There is a danger in trying to constantly transfer your new life back to your old friends.

You have to build a high power network around the practices that you’re doing.

If you want high value relationships you’ve got to invest a lot into that.

The business has to be independent of you.

Setup your business a little bit ahead of your lifestyle.

Reaching out to influencers online is not something you should have your virtual assistant do.
