If you're considering moving abroad and becoming a digital nomad, you may have thought of Bali as an ideal location. I wouldn't blame you. The cost of living here is very low, there are tropical beaches and rainforests making this a paradise on earth. There are islands with scuba and snorkeling and surfing available at your fingertips. The only downside of living in paradise is distractions. There is so much to see and do. There are a lot of bars, massage parlors, amazing restaurants, skate parks, coworking spaces, cafes, and not to mention all the beaches, rice terraces, and hidden spots all around this magical island. With so much to see and do, it can be difficult to nail down a work schedule and get your projects hammered out. 

In this episode, I discuss our month in Bali and all the lessons I learned about productivity and dealing with distractions, but also maintaining a good work-life balance with travel and adventure. I also talk about maintaining a healthy diet and staying sober as you travel so you can stay productive.

There are so many reasons why you should start an online store vs. a brick and mortar store. In this podcast, I talk about our experiences with starting a bike shop in 2014, the obstacles we ran into, the costs, the time involved, and why I would never suggest to anyone that they do a physical store if they want to travel and live the digital nomad lifestyle.

It’s important to see yourself as an architect and general contractor of your ecommerce business, not just as an entrepreneur. You should be the master planner and the one who hires specialists to get the important work done so you can focus on growing your business and living your life so you don’t have to work constantly to survive. The laptop lifestyle isn’t much of a lifestyle if you can’t put the laptop down for a while to relax and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

I’ve been doing ecommerce for about a decade now, starting with selling on eBay in 2008, and moving to Wordpress and woo commerce in 2012, then to Shopify in 2015. I’ve learned a lot in the process and I’ve assembled some secret weapons to my success that I share in this podcast.

My top 10 secret weapons in my eCom biz

1. Wife 2. Virtual assistants 3. Managed ecommerce platform 4. Google AdWords 5. Email marketing 6. Facebook ads 7. Influencers 8. Self-education 9. Work ethic 10. Passion for creating things


There is a lot to be said about each of these eCommerce platforms. While Amazon and eBay drive traffic and make sales for you, you don't get to build your own brand. Shopify allows you to create a comparable website to Amazon and eBay but doesn't take a huge fee and you can keep all your customer's data and build an email list, plus build a brand.

I recommend starting with Shopify, then choosing to scale by selling on multiple marketplaces like Amazon, eBay, or even Houzz.
