This week on the show, I’m talking to Chris Kirkland from the Hobo CEO podcast. His show explores the philosophical side of the digital nomad movement. Chris is a veteran of the location independent scene, having founded his first location-independent business Artweb in 2005. One of Chris’ more recent ventures is TokyoCheapo.com, a content-based business dedicated to educating travelers and expatriates on how to live in Japan on the cheap. We’ll be discussing some of the common misconceptions about living in Japan and the benefits and challenges of managing a content-based business model.
Listen to this week’s show and learn:
- What brought Chris to Japan and why he has decided to stay for so long.
- Why Tokyo gets a bad rap for being an expensive place to live.
- What has changed since Chris became location independent in 2005.
- What “Under-Optimization” is and how entrepreneurs can use it to their advantage.
- The processes of producing and managing the content for TokyoCheapo.com.
- What Chris believes is the future of the digital nomad movement.
