Brian traveled with his wife and 18 month old daughter to some of the major cities of the United States. They hope to make the move to Southeast Asia and parts of Europe. They loved the excitement and diversity of their trip. Each stop in Brian’s journey is like temporarily “setting up shop” and living as a local.   At the time of this recording they were in Asheville, North Carolina.

Brian discusses his travel plans with me and offers insight as to how he and his wife were able to make this happen.

Here are some things we discussed:

  • Brian’s tentative travel schedule
  • How Brian made arrangements ahead of time for their trip
  • How Brian runs his business while traveling
  • The benefits of “living like a local”
  • What is a “lifestyle business?”

Today’s episode is a great example of how nomadic business doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing thing. If you are interested in learning more about Brian visit casjam.com or audienceops.com. You can also follow Brian on Twitter @casjam.
