How to build that financial freedom for yourself
Today is this season’s last podcast episode. You read that right, I am taking a break from podcasting for the summer and the show will be back in September with more inspiring interviews. I will nevertheless remain active on social media and have a couple of articles I will publish on the blog. I’d like to take the opportunity as well to thank you all for taking the time to listen, send in some questions, and share the episodes. I launched this as an experiment and I really enjoyed it and still learn from it but I couldn’t do it without your constant feedback, so thanks so much it means a lot to me!
In today’s episode, we will speak to my friend Sharon Tseung from Digital Nomad Quest.
Sharon left her corporate job in marketing in 2016, traveled for 2 years, and came back to the Bay Area (the area around San Francisco) where she is back into a marketing position and continues to develop her website and various income streams (which she teaches on her website).
Sharon will guide us through the process of how she left her job, how she built income streams all while traveling, and actually how she even managed to save money during those 2 years! Digital nomading may not be for everyone but building passive income streams to strengthen your financial future definitely is and Sharon will help us to get started! (Yaay!)
