Welcome to the Cocoa Nomad podcast, a show about location independent entrepreneurship. I’ll discuss the techniques, tools and tips that can help you balance work and travel and share my experiences (and experiments) in trying to make both a living and a life.


My Job History and Salary Progression - Hourly Era

We are the summation of the experiences that we have. Many of them come from the jobs that we've worked. In each job, we are potentially exposed to new industries, skills, and styles of both working and running a business.

In this video, I review the early part of my work history and reminisce over when I discovered my voice, meeting the first of two Secretaries of State and why “Elevators” by Outkast is one of my favorite songs.
