For the first time in a decade, Dan and Ian are recording a podcast from one of their favorite places in the world, the Philippines.
The Philippines has been an integral part of their business for many years, and it continues to have a strong influence on the lives of so many entrepreneurs in the location-independent community.
On today's podcast, they'll be discussing their history in the Philippines, what the country has meant to their business, and whether it still makes sense for entrepreneurs to build teams in the Philippines in 2019.
We've seen a lot of conversations recently in the location independent lifestyle space about something we like to call "The Digital Nomad Lie".
The general concept is that being location independent is not everything that it's cracked up to be, and that the idea that you can have it all while sipping coconuts on the beach is simply a myth.
It's not surprising then that we've seen a rise in blogs and think pieces by digital nomads that are exhausted from travel and yearning to settle down.
But why are people feeling this way? At the heart of it, there may be many misconceptions and mistakes that we can make in the way that we think about travel.
We've invited our good friend and esteemed author Kyla Gardner on to the show this week to share some of her experiences living a location independent lifestyle, her biggest travel mistakes, and whether the promise of the digital nomad lifestyle is fact or fiction.
So many people listening to this podcast are looking for the kind of freedom that allows them to travel the world.
It's no wonder then that Recreational Vehicles or "RVs" have become increasingly popular in the entrepreneurial space in recent years.
If you recall, last year we spoke to Ian's friend and mentor Corey Reueth on this podcast about his experiences buying and selling cars and recreational vehicles.
In today's episode, Corey and Ian are having an in-depth discussion about the RV lifestyle.
You'll hear about the different types of RVs on the market, the benefits and drawbacks to each of them, how much it costs to purchase an RV, and what RV living actually looks like.
In last week's episode, we took a look at the early days of Dan and Ian's relationship and the circumstances that led to their business partnership.
Today's podcast is the second part of that series, and it's all about the next chapter.
In this episode, you'll hear how Dan and Ian bought their business partner out of their product company, the origins of this podcast, how they started their membership community The Dynamite Circle, and much more.
In the ten years that Dan and Ian have been recording this podcast, the number one thing that they hear from listeners is that they want to know more about their story.
Today's episode is the first part of a two-part documentary series where Dan and Ian open up about their own personal history.
In this episode, you will hear why they each decided to move to San Diego, California, the circumstances that led to their meeting, how they became friends, and ultimately how they decided to become business partners.
