Make professional virtue your habit!

Guest Post by Biorn Tjallen

Make professional virtue your habit!
Perhaps it was the subtle swells of the Ionian Sea – gently rocking the ferry back from Greece – that inspired me to read about Aristotle’s disagreement with Socrates. My heartfelt accord with his point, however, was simply the result of painful personal experience. I had been unforgivably lazy, lying there in the Peleponesian sun. It had cost me a great assignment, damaged an important professional contact and broken the back of my already reeling finances. I could have screamed to the waves that Aristotle was right: The fact that you know what you ought to does not mean that you will actually do it!

Graphics Software to Increase Sales of Your Information Products and Services

As a TravelTrep, you know one thing for sure….
Having money come in on auto-pilot is what allows you to have a more care-free life and gives you the FREEDOM to explore the world.
One of the best ways to do this is to sell digital information. Sometimes it can be a tough sell if you aren’t able to properly explain or “show” a prospect what they will be getting. This online program that makes info product graphics is what I (JSE) have used to dramatically increase my sales. It lets you tell your story in a much more compelling way.

Teaching and Training in Thailand

Guest Post by Cameron Conaway

My fiancée Maggie and I were at a Thai restaurant in Charlottesville, Virginia. We didn’t know it at the time, but we were two burnt out teachers and we were only in our mid-twenties. She was finishing her second year working at a boarding school for kids with learning disabilities – a job that was often twenty-four hours a day for five or six days a week – and I’d been teaching for several years all over the place – from Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth in Lancaster, Pennsylvania to high schools in Tucson, Arizona and, most recently, for several online universities. The tipping point occurred as we dove into our spring rolls and pad Thai.

Maggie’s eyes filled with tears. Her face was angelic; these were not tears of stress.

“Are you okay, babe?” I asked.

“Yeah. I just…I know what’s next for me. I know what I need.”

She looked around and I followed her eyes into the Buddha and temple relics. Her eyes came back to mine:

“I need to move abroad and teach. Are you joining me?”

10 Lessons Learned from Being a Digital Nomad

Lessons are plenty when following a nomadic lifestyle. Every day can present new horizons; stripping away the realities of yesterday and presenting you with a lovely new set of rules from which to learn from. Unlike in a standard nine to five job, intertwining your job with your lifestyle opens up whole new possibilities for personal growth, and here’s 10 things we have learned from our time as digital nomads.

1. The world isn’t as big as you think
Wherever we have lived, friends, family and the comforts of home have only ever been a click away. Through the speed in which international travel can be conducted, these days, to the variety of social apps and websites on the market today, no matter where you are you’re connected with those who matter.

Lessons learned from being a digital nomad

Guest Post By Nick Hilden

Over the course of the past six years, I have lived in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Paris, Barcelona, Granada, and a great many small towns in between. I’ve roamed up and down the United States, have driven all over Spain, and have buzzed to a number of tropical locations. I have slept in houses, apartments, hotels, hostels, on couches, under bridges, in parks, and more than once have spent periods of months on end living in a tent in the middle of nowhere. I have become almost too accustomed to sitting in airports, bus stations, and on train platforms, and have been in two near plane crashes.
