40:48 | Download | Spotify| stapler | itunes | Comment

Some call it a ‘revenge ride’, others just call it ‘getting back on track’, but the folks in the location-independent community are, without a doubt, getting back on the road. On this week’s show, Y Y ian look at what factors fuel the creation of ‘digital nomad hotspots’ and the potential new emerging cities suggested by listeners of this podcast and members of the ‘Dynamite Circle’.

They also discuss how they are going to implement the systems in their newest business, ‘Dynamic Jobs’, the pros and cons of those prescribed by ‘Traction’ and ‘Scaling Up’, and why they chose to work with a facilitator:

‘We did some of the exercises wrong. It’s not that we didn’t understand them. But maybe we didn’t understand the intention and how they fit into the bigger part of the picture. So it was very helpful for me to do the exercises with someone because we were exposed to a lot of exercises, and now we can make choices based on how we complete it. So I felt, in many ways, that we condensed it by having a facilitator help us.’

Listen and learn:

  • The factors that contribute to a successful ‘digital nomad’ city
  • Why ‘Scaling Up’ vs ‘Traction’ is like Google vs Apple?
  • The advantages of hiring a systems facilitator
  • The power to systematize your business
