Sometimes it's not a job that ties us down and keeps us from living the freedom lifestyle, it's our own business! This was the case for Dai Manuel. He had spent years building up his fitness clothing company to the point where the job and responsibilities were weighing him down. Meanwhile, his wife, who was a world traveler prior to their marriage, was consistently dropping hints that she wanted to explore the world again — this time with their two children.
In today's episode, Dai shares the mental process it took for him to be open to traveling, because, as he admits, he was a bit negative about the idea from the beginning.
Dai and I talk about:
What it is like traveling while leaving family behind
Leaving a career that has become an identity
Creating an online brand
How to plan your life
How to overcome fears that keep you stuck such as thinking of the worst-case scenario
