Find the Beat: Remote Living through the Eyes of Kia Orion of Beat School | TNN19

Aug 30, 2021
We all like music, one genre or the other. I don't believe there's a single person that actually dislikes all types of music. Some people love music to a concerning degree like it's the only thing they think about and want so constantly that it feels like an addiction. It's far more than a want, it's a need. Ultimately, music has changed our lives and still changes us every day. That same passion drove Kia Orion to where he is right now - running Beat School and teaching how to create cool music. In this episode, Kia joins us in exploring the world of beats and what it took to thrive in it. From making 10 years’ worth of mistakes and failed tries, Kia finally pursued his passion for music by creating and teaching his students good ole’ ground thumpin’ beats. Our trio of nomads also discussed the challenges in this niche and tips on how to be successful in it. This is a fun-filled (and music tips-filled) episode that you wouldn’t want to miss. Really.

For remote employees and digital nomads, organizational abilities can make or break offsite work experience. Without physical supervision, peer pressure, and the experience of walking into the office, even small tasks can seem daunting, and motivation can plummet. How you structure your remote workday has a huge impact on how you spend your day and thus, how much you get done. And that’s what Chase Warrington has been really passionate about - keeping a remote worker’s day organized and structured.

Whoever said that a community is a way of life could never be more correct. As human beings, we need a sense of belonging, and that sense of belonging is what connects us to the many relationships we develop. Communities are also rich in resources, that is where their collective aspect comes into play. No matter where you go, there will always be a group of people who share the same passion and interests. If there is none, build one! And that is exactly what Gonçalo Hall does. He builds communities and helps them thrive in remote work life.

Taking Action First as a Successful Remote Worker With Mitko Karshovski | TNN16

Aug 9, 2021
Balancing thought and action will always be a challenge for many people. When you spend too much time studying and picturing what a project is going to be like, too much time thinking about how awesome it will be, and too little time actually making the thing, you make no progress. It doesn’t hurt to research but is there a thing like too much research? Yes, there is. So just take the action and get your plans rolling. That’s just what Mitko Karshovski did. He majored in the fields of Microbiology, Biotechnology, Art History, Journalism, and Creative Writing then eventually put all the collective wisdom he gained into action.

What better way to appreciate what you have than giving back to those who are in need?

It is innate to us as humans to have this urge to be of service to others. That is exactly what David Richter did, as is still doing to this point.

FIRE: Financial Independence, Retire Early with Eric Richard | TNN13

Jul 19, 2021
Retirement has a synonym: financial independence. Both terms are used to define a financial status that, once reached, means you’re no longer dependent on outside sources of income. Eric Richard worked his way into a lucrative corporate job in supply chain management, but with that came long hours and a terrible commute. After realizing that frugality can go a long way, he saved $500k and traveled around the world.

Global Dexterity and Reach: Step Out of Comfort Zones with Andy Molinsky | TNN12

Jul 12, 2021
Would you willingly step out of your comfort zone? Staying inside our “comfort zone” can make us feel safe and in control, but is it truly the best thing for us? Being in the Zoom existence that Covid-19 brought, it’s easier to just stay where you are comfortable and not challenged. There are some people who help others develop the insights and courage necessary to act outside their personal and cultural comfort zones. Andy Molinsky, a Professor at Brandeis University’s International Business School, is one of them.

How do you really know a culture? Immerse yourself in it! Travelers are increasingly seeking these authentic, immersive experiences in new places. Being unfamiliar with the basics, like how to get around, how to speak the language, which restaurants serve the real deal, and which serve a touristy rendition of local food, can be very difficult to understand the bigger picture. But there’s no need to fear because immersing yourself in other cultures is the best thing you can do for yourself.

Do you have an idea how it feels to be a citizen of one country but raised in another? If you are one of the people who were raised in a culture other than their parents' or the culture of their country of nationality, and also live in a different environment during a significant part of their child development years, then you are a Third Culture Kid. Exposure to various cultures is a beneficial yet somehow traumatizing experience for children as they become confused with their “mirrors and anchors”.

When you think of remote work, you can almost always relate it to having a drink with a tiny umbrella on a beach somewhere exotic while tapping on your laptop or having a Zoom meeting in a cozy mountain lodge in front of a roaring fire. That is not always the case. For some, they work remotely just because they can. But for some, it is a necessity for the health of their child, family, and even theirs.
