Episode 46: Rewriting Yourself by Moving Abroad with Beat Maker Kia Orion

When Kia Orion was growing up in upstate NY, the one thing he loved more than anything else in the world was hip hop music. But, he had no idea how to make that a career. He even moved to West Philly (home of the Fresh Prince himself) and couldn’t figure out how to make it happen. After a series of retail and office jobs, Kia discovered the world of teaching online and, even though it wasn’t his passion, he figured that he could live in southeast Asia much cheaper than in the US and make it happen while continuing to work on his music. Join Kia and I in Santiago de Querétaro, Mexico for more about the creative process, moving to Asia, and making your own courses online. Kia even turns the tables and interviews me for part of this very special interview!
