Build up a nice little nest egg so you can travel internationally


The pandemic has made the economy weak; as a consequence, many people have lost their jobs or have to change their careers. If you are looking for career advice, you might want to take some notes today. How to build a nest egg as a freelancer: In my parents’ generation, an individual only had 1 job in their life.

A True Story about Life in Ukraine


I went to Ukraine years ago and I still vividly remember that fascinating experience in a beautiful country. I met good friends. When I visited Ukraine, I spent two weeks there at a retreat where like-minded people got together to learn meditation and personal development. Before that, I rarely met anyone that share my thoughts because most people aren’t really interested in self-help and personal development. Perhaps only 10% of the population are actually growth-driven because most people would pay for entertainment rather than education. But I value education and personal development. No wonder I couldn’t get along well with many [...]

Time & energy management for global travelers


As a business owner and world traveler, I’ve met a lot of entrepreneurs who run Internet businesses while traveling the world. As I’m very interested in time and energy management, I’ve summarized the best tips for time and energy management. Time is an asset. Many successful business owners who have achieved financial freedom are able to enjoy life – their businesses have been automated; they make money from investing success. The reason they hire managers and employees to automate their businesses is because they highly value their time. They make passive income from their investment because they want to make money [...]

A digital nomad’s global travel wisdom


As a digital nomad, I’ve been working for myself for a very long time. Since I run an online business, I don’t have to go to the office every day in order to get my work done – I can simply do everything on my laptop. Therefore, I’ve been a superfan of international travel for more than one decade. Get rid of low-leverage activities. As I am able to travel the world while doing remote work, I have decided not to do the following low-leverage activities: I don’t answer phone calls from unrecognized telephone numbers anymore. This type of phone calls [...]

Explore, enjoy and travel in East Asia


Talking about travelling in East Asia, my favorite activity is going to Muji while having fun in Japan. As to Muji’s opportunities, two important opportunities have been found: The first opportunity is international expansion. Sato (2010) maintains that the current domestic market in Japan is already saturated because Muji is a very popular and well-known brand in Japan. Meanwhile, the eco-friendly, no-brand trend looks very attractive and desirable globally. Thus, Muji can expand internationally. Now Muji also has many stores in Europe, North America, Asia, Australia and the Middle East. The second opportunity is launching new sustainable and environmentally friendly products. [...]
