PH - 72 | Robert Botto | How A 28 Year Old Digital Nomad Started His Journey

How A 28-Year-Old Digital Nomad Started His Journey

Today’s guest I have a friend of mine that I met while traveling in Chiangmai Thailand.

We’ve become really good friends and connected instantly. Robert Botto a 28-year-old digital nomad traveling the world and building a lifestyle business. He shares so much of his insights. His journey, his favourite travel spots, his mindsets and tips on how to get started.

I just had to bring him onto the path hunters podcast and chat about all this.

Robert shares his story on his journey going from the corporate 9-5 world going through a partnership to helping his family business out to eventually starting his own business. What is really cool about Robert is that he’s still young, and going through all this in life has given him so much experience.

Robert and I agree on the fact that if you’re unhappy with what you’re doing now, you can change that.

Partnerships and the mentality 

Robert told a story about partnerships and how it works. They’re like marriages and the biggest thing he mentioned that communication is key when going into a business with a partner. Expressing what is going on, aligning the schedules, and always communicating is key.

The difference between Bali & Chiangmai and what the hype is all about. 

Bali is another spot for digital nomads to gather and do work, Robert mentioned that it’s a great place for established digital nomads with sustaining businesses, and not for someone who is just bootstrapping their business. You can easily get distracted with all the surfing and enjoy the weather. Chiangmai is a place where you’re able to bootstrap your business, the vibes there is amazing, everyone is on their laptops and doing some sort of entrepreneurial work.

How to get started 

Robert mentioned that a great way to start is by learning a new skill, and a great resource is going onto buy a course and learn a new skill set that will allow you to become a digital nomad. Being location independent.

Final Thoughts

I really enjoyed this interview as Robert is a young digital nomad that is following his love for travel, and built himself a business around that lifestyle. He shared some great points on how to get started, the mindset you need to have to get started, and what to expect.

Thank you, my friend, for coming onto the podcast!
