This week’s episode is another chapter in a long-running series on this podcast, where Dan and Ian have been exploring the locations around the globe that entrepreneurs are moving to.

Today, you will hear from two entrepreneurs who have made Thailand, and more specifically the northern capital of Chiang Mai, their home bases for the portion of a year.

Philippe Bordeau is the founder of HammockUniverse.com. He shares his story, including the details of a Visa that he has acquired that allows him to be a resident of Thailand for up to 6 years at a time.

Leanne Woodmass, along with her husband, runs an Amazon FBA Business Brokerage. She has been living in Thailand for the past few years.

You’ll hear how a community of expats and entrepreneurs enticed them both to stay in Chiang Mai.

    Really great to hear Phil and Leanne share their stories about Chiang Mai. Glad to have these two smart and savvy entrepreneurs dispel some of the bigger myths about this place.

  • Kean Graham

    Oh man, it would have been really cool to hear Brett Whiteside’s take. The guy is Mr. Chang Mai! He lived there on and off for over 14 years and speaks fluent Thai.
