Lesson 39: Setting Up Multiple Streams of Income with Blogger, Podcaster, Investor, and Digital Nomad Ambassador Johnny FD
In 2010, Johnny FD started documenting his experiences living in Thailand after being laid off from his job in California. Eventually, he started posting monthly income expense reports that detailed every source of his income. And it was one of these reports that first led me to discover Johnny’s blog. At that time, I found Johnny’s story very inspiring because he was close to my age and didn’t come from a wealthy background or have a huge amount of savings to start from. He was simply trying things out and seeing what worked and what didn’t.
Over the years, Johnny FD has become a major name in the digital nomad scene and has also built up a total of 14 different income streams. During this incredibly difficult time in the world when so many of us have lost our jobs, I thought it would be a fantastic opportunity to ask Johnny how he built up his income streams and for advice on how to do it when you’re first starting out.
From blogging to podcasting to online course creation, different ways to invest in the stock market, and planning for retirement, Johnny and I cover a lot of ground in this episode. For those of you wondering how to find more financial security in these uncertain times, you won’t want to miss this episode!
