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.


Do You Feel Guilty About Leaving the US?

In one of the FB ex-pat groups, I saw a question posted that made me reflect on how far I've come in my journey and what it took for me to get there:  

"Why do I feel guilty about leaving? Like not staying in the struggle to change America. Can anyone relate?"  

Although not everyone experiences it, Survivor's Guilt is a real thing. I felt it when I started doing better than my siblings and my peers. It was one of the reasons that I didn't leave and stay gone in 2002.   

In fact, I returned, settled down, and didn't leave again until 2016. 

But it took a lot for me to leave then.  And I've been gone ever since. 

If you'd like to talk about your journey and how I may be able to help, schedule a Discovery Call 

If you have a specific problem with remote work or travel and would like to strategize a solution, schedule a Consultation 

The Cocoa Nomad Newsletter is now available!  

With each issue, you’ll receive valuable information on working and living regardless of location.
