Max Solomonyuk is a software developer and newly self-dubbed entrepreneur who believes that being playfully curious about yourself and your surroundings will help you find new dreams or goals. After his first stint with solo-travel back in 2016, Max dreamt of being location independent so that he could see the world while working from these remote places. In 2019, he took the leap and went through Asia with just a backpack filled with a handful of clothes and his laptop. From working on a farm in Japan, to learning the art of sound healing in the Nepali Himalayas, to plugging into and building out an ex-pat community in Da Nang, Vietnam, Max gained many insights into confidence, self-motivation, and building community that he shares in this episode.
After his travels were cut short due to the pandemic, Max and a few friends that he met in Bali, started an online video speed networking platform Hi Right Now that has recently gotten into a world-renowned accelerator Fast Track Malmo. He is now currently back in Bali where he is working full time on his current dream to make meeting people online less weird and more fun and effective.
