Goodbye IMAlwaysHappy2Help – Hello Thinglish Lifestyle

September 25, 2016 in Internet Marketing Lifestyle by Perry

I set up this blog back in 2009-10 as a way to document what I was doing at a certain point in my life. However, now is the time to move on to a new chapter of my life and close

In 2008-9, around the time of the housing bubble burst, I decided to leave the UK for good and spend more time in Asia and live a semi-nomadic lifestyle.

I traveled to over 30 countries and got to know most pretty well, always choosing to take a path less traveled then hang out with other expats or live in a tourist bubble.

Before I left London I had a reasonably successful business that I could manage from my laptop and provide me with income to fund my lifestyle.

Actually when I first moved to Bangkok my lifestyle improved dramatically. I rented a condo by the Chao Phraya River for a firth of the price of a similar dwelling by the River Thames in London.

Food is abundant and cheap in Thailand and so is just about everything else, beers, clothes and taxi’s etc. So by reducing my overheads and freeing up more time, moving allowed me to concentrate on my business and build it up to something I could never have done back in England.

perry-thinglish-lifestyleAfter three years living in Bangkok and exploring Asia, I moved to Koh Chang Island with my partner, Katae. Koh Chang is Thailand’s second largest island (about the same size as Singapore) but probably the least inhabited due to its National Park status.

Around the same time I also incorporated my business in Singapore, so no going back to the old country for me.

18 months ago I married the love of my life and we have recently bought a large plot of land in Trat province. We are now developing this plot into a permaculture food forest and building a house from 5 shipping containers.

So as I’m no longer living what could be remotely called a digital nomad lifestyle, this will be my last post here.

I now have a beautiful wife, live rent and debt free on our own land that within the next few years will provide us with an abundance of fresh and organic food. I’ve finally found the freedom I was always looking for that being a digital nomad couldn’t quite live up to.

If you want to see what an old digital nomad does after he hangs up his backpack, visit my wife and I’s new blog Thinglish Lifestyle. It will be great to see you there and as always, I’m always happy to help.

Naked Ambitions – Entrepreneurs Discuss their Location Independent Lifestyles

June 12, 2015 in Digital Nomad, News & Reviews by Perry

Perry Stevens - Location Independent LifestyleFor this inspiring blog post, Ive reached out to my circle of friends on Facebook who, like me also live location independent lifestyles. Generally when you read these kinds of posts you usually get stories by Digital Nomads, people who work online and earn an income from managing social media accounts, web development or some kind of Internet marketing. But the truth be told, there are many ways to earn a crust, build a business and live where ever you want.

Yes, in this post you will read enlightening stories by web developers but also comedians, explorers and startup entrepreneurs to hopefully inspire and open you up to a whole new world of opportunities, happiness and new horizons.

Aidan Killian - Location IndependentName: Aidan Killian

Current location: Dublin Ireland

Can you briefly explain what you do for a living? Comedian Describe how it all began for you and why you decide to become location independent. I was a banker in Japan and decided I wanted to be a comedian, so I did. Why Dublin… because my family here and I love Ireland. I usually escape for the winter though.

Can you describe your morning routine? I get up before 8am, I meditate, have a green drink, do a little yoga, some press-ups and then check my emails and hopefully start writing or crafting jokes, but I don’t do that every morning to be honest, sometimes I go have coffee or green juice with a friend or on my own.

What is the best place or most fun thing that you’ve done in the past year? Writing a new show with my mate Sam in Phnom Penh AND hanging out with fellow human Greta and fellow comedian Craig Campbell in a really expensive place in Singapore where Singapore Slings were invented drinking really expensive Singapore Slings before we went on stage to a beautiful gig.

Tell us something that will make us green with envy about your setup? I have a pillow room and a projector…. HELLO LADIES

What are some of the biggest challenges or frustrations about your location independent lifestyle? Irish People don’t give a flying fuck about comedy.

Do you ever see yourself leading a more regular life in the future? No. Well maybe a little farm with kids and trees and flowers and lots of lettuce 🙂

What resources or tools do you use you can’t live without? My brain and my heart and my body.

What advice do you have for people who are tired of the regular 9-5 grind, and want more independence and freedom from a lifestyle business? Taking steps towards creating the life that chose to live is extremely empowering, invigorating and your spirit will become contagious. be careful you may suffer from moments of extreme Joy.

Dave Schneider - Location Independent LifestyleYour Name: Dave Schneider

Current location: Boston MN USA

Can you briefly explain what you do for a living? I run a software startup called NinjaOutreach. It’s a blogger outreach software that helps businesses find influencers in their niche.

Describe how it all began for you and why you decide to become location independent. A few years ago, back in 2012, my girlfriend and I decided we wanted to quit the 9-5 rat race and travel. This wasn’t going to be a permanent thing. It was supposed to be two years of intense backpacking followed by business school.

While we were on the road our travel blog started to take off. We were earning money by working with advertising agencies, and eventually started paying for the entire trip. This instilled in us the belief that we could earn our own living and have way more fun doing it. We’ve been traveling and working online ever since.

Can you describe your morning routine? It’s not terribly exciting and the main difference is there is no commute. I wake up and check emails, usually on the look out for support tickets which I assign the highest priority. Then I check in with my partners and employees, have some breakfast and go to the gym. I find if I don’t go to the gym right away, I can easily get sidetracked and miss it completely. 

What is the best place or most fun thing that you’ve done in the past year? Can I say a 6 month US road trip? I realize that’s a bit of an extended period of time, but as a whole it was amazing. I’ve been to over 40 countries but the US really blew me away in terms of its natural and historic sites. Despite being from the East coast, I have to say the West coast (and not just Cali but also Oregon and Washington) is so nice!

Tell us something that will make us green with envy about your setup? Honestly running a startup has a lot of ups and downs but one thing I know we’re really lucky to have is the ability to be location independent. In September were going to go to Costa Rica – just because. We’ll rent an apartment on the beach for 1-2 months and then travel around the area a bit. It’s just amazing to have that kind of flexibility.

What are some of the biggest challenges or frustrations about your location independent lifestyle? It’s extremely hard to work and travel simultaneously. You’re constantly faced with opportunity costs – do I work or do I go out, and this can be frustrating. I really don’t recommend trying to travel hardcore and work at the same time, but instead to separate each as best you can.

Do you ever see yourself leading a more regular life in the future? Nope!

What resources or tools do you use you can’t live without? Well my computer, obviously. I do use quite a bit of tools like Lead Pages, HootSuite, of course, NinjaOutreach. But to be honest, tools like Skype, Hangouts, and Google Docs are things I use everyday and really can’t live without.

What advice do you have for people who are tired of the regular 9-5 grind, and want more independence and freedom from a lifestyle business? I would probably suggest starting out gradually. See if you can start a business on the side. Focus on just making $1k a month – a service based business is probably a good way to get started since they are cheap to get off the ground and you can learn a lot about marketing that way. You’ll feel a lot less stressed than if you were to quit tomorrow with nothing and just some deadline to make it work.

David Schneider is the co-founder of NinjaOutreach, an innovative new Blogger Outreach software for marketers.

Nik & Dusty Green - Location IndependentYour Names: Nik and Dusty Green

Current location: Austin, TX

Can you briefly explain what you do for a living? We are filmmakers/videographers/adventurers, specializing in videos for the travel and orthodontic industries.

Describe how it all began for you and why you decide to become location independent. It all began when we decided in 2006 that we’d quit our jobs, sell off our possessions and get a new, fresh and exciting start on our lives together. Though we had good jobs and made decent money at the time, we’d become dissatisfied with the routine that defined our lives: we’d wake up, go to work, come home, and pray for a restful and enjoyable weekend. We felt trapped. Like we were attached by ball and chain to our jobs and our stuff. And we wanted more out of life. So we left it all behind – and found excitement, fulfillment, freedom and joy.

Can you describe your morning routine? That’s the beauty of our lives today. There really is no set routine! Some days we wake up early and get a head start on the day’s activities, some days we sleep until 10 a.m. It varies according to where we are and what we’re doing at the time. But there is one constant in our mornings, however: coffee. Lots of good, strong, black coffee. Can’t do much without it.

What is the best place or most fun thing that you’ve done in the past year? We’ve been fortunate to have done so many awesome things in the past year. But our favorite was probably the trip we took to Ecuador last fall to film a series of travel videos. We spent a week living with native peoples in the Ecuadorian Amazon, and followed that up with a week-long cruise in the Galapagos. So, yeah. That was an epic time.

Tell us something that will make us green with envy about your setup? Easy. We’re free. We simply don’t have many of the responsibilities that “normal” folks have to worry about. We live where we want, generally for as long as we want. We travel extensively and are able to see so many beautiful places and experience so many fascinating cultures. Most everything we need to work and earn a living will fit into a backpack. And each day is a new adventure.

What are some of the biggest challenges or frustrations about your location independent lifestyle? Our biggest challenge by far is being able to access the internet. Our business (and our lifestyle) depends greatly on our ability to connect with clients and our audience and share our videos and our stories from the road. But even in today’s tech-infused society it’s often really tough for us to find a good connection. Which is frustrating beyond belief. And it’s also a challenge trying to convince others at times that we do actually work very hard to maintain this lifestyle. Many people believe we’re just living on permanent vacation with oodles of money sitting in a bank somewhere. Far, far, far from the truth.

Do you ever see yourself leading a more regular life in the future? When we’re old and gray.

What resources or tools do you use you can’t live without? The internet, as mentioned, is vital. Can’t do anything without it. Beyond that, there’s our gear: our cameras, laptops, and all the stuff necessary to do our jobs.

What advice do you have for people who are tired of the regular 9-5 grind, and want more independence and freedom from a lifestyle business? Always, always believe that it can be done. So many people think that a location-independent lifestyle is just flat-out impossible. Others might consider the idea but never really commit, and as life goes on they then just fall back into the daily grind. But you can do it! It’s hard work and stressful and frightening and frustrating at times, but it’s also rewarding, fulfilling and incredibly liberating. And we wouldn’t change it for the world. Just decide to make that change, and commit over time to doing it!

Koen Van Dieren - Location Independent LifestyleYour Name: Koen van Dieren

Current location: Bangkok, Thailand

Can you briefly explain what you do for a living? I design, develop and maintain websites for small to medium sized businesses that are located all around the world.

Describe how it all began for you and why you decide to become location independent. Before I started travelling I was working at a TV station as a video editor, something I didn’t see my self doing abroad because of the language barrier. So I decided to learn about webdesign and website development by participating in courses and by doing an internship at a webdesign agency. I like to be my own boss and, because I like to travel, the idea of working anywhere with an internet connection.

Can you describe your morning routine? After getting up and breakfast I get behind my laptop about 08:30. I start with answering e-mails that require a quick response, than I pick a nice tune and start working through my tasks of the day.

What is the best place or most fun thing that you’ve done in the past year? I had been working pretty hard for a long period so I allowed myself to take a few days of and travel to Koh Phangan, a beautiful island in the gulf of Thailand.

Tell us something that will make us green with envy about your setup? Because I work from home instead of in a company at and office I save a lot of time with cutting out office politics and commuting.

What are some of the biggest challenges or frustrations about your location independent lifestyle? I sometimes miss the creative environment and the feedback that you would get in an office. Because my business is always evolving I believe it’s important to stay in touch with people who are in the same business as I am in, this in order to keep up with the latest developments. I’ve build a network of like minded people by joining Facebook groups, being active on twitter, following the news specific to my area of expertise and visiting a meetup every once in a while

Do you ever see yourself leading a more regular life in the future? I am always looking to grow my business, perhaps in the future I will hire staff and open an office.

What resources or tools do you use you can’t live without? My Macbook, it’s the best thing ever invented!

What advice do you have for people who are tired of the regular 9-5 grind, and want more independence and freedom from a lifestyle business?
Start with getting some work on the side of your regular job. Once you feel confident that you can have a little stream of steady income and you see potential in your business, just take the step and get out of the 9-5 grind.

Tom Coleman - Location Independent LifestyleName: Tom Coleman

Current location: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Can you briefly explain what you do for a living? I run a Search Engine Marketing company called Search Lab. My expertise is in Google Adwords management and landing page conversion rate optimisation. My main clients are digital marketing agencies in Australia who offer different types of marketing services and every time they have clients who need PPC I take over the work and they deal with the relationship management of the client so I can focus on the work.

Describe how it all began for you and why you decide to become location independent. When I was around 21 I went to Thailand for a 3 month holiday and that 3 months turned in almost 3 years. From then I made the decision that I didn’t want to do the traditional career and being location independent and traveling is what make me truly happy.

It was hit and miss for a few years while I was living overseas, I lived week to week and most of the things I tried didn’t work out, but I had a great time trying, and I learnt a hell of a lot about myself and about business. It’s really only been the last 18 months or so that things have worked out really well for me, and I now feel like I’m officially a location independent/digital nomad.
Can you describe your morning routine? My morning routine is extremely important for me and since I’ve been following certain rituals it has boosted my productivity 10 fold.
I set my alarm for 5:45AM every morning. I meditate for 15 minutes, and then exercise for 30 minutes to an hour. When I’m home from working out I pull out my plan for the day that I wrote out the night before and add anything to it I may have missed the night before, then in the same note pad I write out 10 ideas about anything and everything I can think of, I read this in a book called choose yourself by James Altucher and the way he explains it is creativity is like a muscle that needs to be exercised. After I’ve done this, I get a very strong coffee and start my work day, usually at 7:30 to 8:00AM.
What is the best place or most fun thing that you’ve done in the past year? The best thing I have done in the last year was to go back to my home town in Sydney for a year and get in the best shape of my life. I joined an awesome muay thai gym called 8 limbs in Bondi, I learned crossfit, competed in muay thai and would train twice a day.
Tell us something that will make us green with envy about your setup? I love to mix my work environment up so no 2 days are ever the same. I work from home maybe 1 day a week, I work from a co-working space a couple days a week to be surrounded by like minded folks, and the rest of the time I am a cafe whore going to 3 or 4 different cafes in an 8hr period.
What are some of the biggest challenges or frustrations about your location independent lifestyle? I have an awesome group of mates in my hometown and made some more friends whilst I was back home so thats quite hard to leave, as every time I hit a new country I have to start over again. I suppose that is a part of what makes location independence exciting as I’m forced outside my comfort zone to try and meet new people, and being quite a shy person, I think it is good for me.
Also the internet!! Sometimes its a pain in the arse depending on where you are. Ho Chi Minh City have had some connection issues the last week or so and its been a little frustrating. The authorities said a shark ate the cable out to sea…Yeah right!!
Do you ever see yourself leading a more regular life in the future? At this point in time in my life, absolutely not. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, I’m the healthiest I’ve ever been, and the fact that my whole life fits into a sports bag and a suitcase excites me. I can literally go anywhere I please at anytime because I have nothing holding me down, it’s awesome and I hope I stay a nomad for as long as possible….But who knows, you never know whats around the corner so that could all change, only time will tell.
What resources or tools do you use you can’t live without? My Macbooks. I’m a bit of an apple geek and now have a 13″ macbook air and a 15″macbook pro retina that Accompany me in my travels.
I’m extremely passionate about my health and well-being so wherever I travel to I always make sure there is some sort of fitness facility near where I’m staying.
I’ve also recently discovered trello which is a web based organization app. It helps me a lot as I have been known to be incredibly unorganized and forgetful.
What advice do you have for people who are tired of the regular 9-5 grind, and want more independence and freedom from a lifestyle business? It’s so possible for everyone, If I can do it, anyone can do it all you have to do is break free from the mindset of the 9-5 grind and open your mind to the possibilities of being location independent.
You also need to hussle and work hard. When i first started doing this I had the mindset of, because this is online work I won’t have to work very hard, and to be honest I had a really bad work ethic. When I realized that I still had to work just as hard everything changed. I work hard in my business and go above and beyond for all my clients, but I love it, and I love the lifestyle I’m able to live because of it.

Gio Greenard - Location Independent LifestyleYour Name: Giovanni Greenard
Current location:
Bali, Indonesia

Can you briefly explain what you do for a living? I’m a Local SEO consultant, mainly in the dental field. Essentially I build digital real estate on page one of Google to increase my customers client base. Most recently I have been delving into group tuition in the form of a membership site.

Describe how it all began for you and why you decide to become location independent. Destiny I guess. Writing a car off  (as a consequence not being able to travel to work), coupled with some personal problems gave me that I have nothing to loose push. Consequently I jetted out to Thailand within 10 days  to take a friend up on job offer.  It’s wasn’t quite so straight forward in the end, but it all panned out perfectly.

Can you describe your morning routine? It’s pretty much like clockwork now. I wake at 530-6 ( it gets hot here later in the day, and I’m more productive in the A.M). I brew myself a strong coffee and normally work from home until 10 am. I then head to the co working space to get out of the house.

What is the best place or most fun thing that you’ve done in the past year? I’d have to say spending time in Bali, as it’s so varied here, and there are so many cool people who also work online. In February I popped over to the Gili islands for an amazing 3 day beach festival. Whilst there I met a chap who believed he was Merlin the wizard, not everyday you meet a wizard is it.

Tell us something that will make us green with envy about your setup? Well has to be that I can work from anywhere in the world as long as there is good Wi-fi. I normally spend the summer in Europe, but as the cold weather approaches I migrate to warmer climates.  Just read that back, wow life’s good!

What are some of the biggest challenges or frustrations about your location independent lifestyle? Not often, but internet can be a bit of a problem. You also have to think ahead when dealing with visas for particular countries. I occasionally miss meeting mates back home  for a cold one down the local as well.

Do you ever see yourself leading a more regular life in the future? I sincerely hope not, I have a problem with authority lol. Jokes aside at some point I hope to find a place I settle down on a more permanent basis, but lets have a look around first 🙂

What resources or tools do you use you can’t live without? Laptop, smart phone, sunglases, coffee, shorts and vest.

What advice do you have for people who are tired of the regular 9-5 grind, and want more independence and freedom from a lifestyle business? I think I took quite a radical approach, as I was kind of forced into that position. If I was starting over again, I’d say work on an evening and a weekends until you get enough money together from your side act to subsidise living in a cheap country such as Bali (there are many more).

With a 600-800 pounds a month you can make that move and dedicate yourself fully to building your empire. Ultimately you just need to give things a whirl, there will be hard times, set backs  and frustration along the way it beats sitting on the M25 sat in traffic drinking your Costa coffee.  What’s the worst that can happen?

Graham Wooding - Location Independent LifestyleName: Graham Wooding

Current Location: Bangkok
Can you briefly explain what you do for a living? I am a comedy performer, writer and promoter with a sprinkling of English language tuition.
Describe how it all began for you and why you decide to become location independent. It all started in the UK and started again after 2 years relaxing and traveling in Asia. I became location independent as a result. My job has always involved traveling so location independence is a gift and burden, the former ruling the later. I am multi-locationized for short periods
Can you describe your morning routine? My morning routine consists of waking up. Coffee. Walk the dog and think about the day. Coffee again.  I always try and write a little as its a time when my brain is energized. But being a night owl the morning is not my most proactive time.
What is the best place or most fun thing that you’ve done in the past year? Best place I have been this year is a new Phuket Comedy Club in the stunning Royal Phuket Marina. Hanging out amongst million dollar Yachts and wonderful sunsets from a Penthouse rooftop Jacuzzi. Speedboat ride for a Canadian comedian was his first time, he had never seen a real speedboat up-front let alone been slammed along the choppy waters at full speed on one, his massive red beard Kung Fu kicking in the wind. Brilliant times.
Tell us something that will make us green with envy about your setup? I do not want to generate envy only creativity, love and laughter. Maybe the above might green some.
What are some of the biggest challenges or frustrations about your location independent lifestyle? Challenges I face are small immigration woes and and non uniformity of paychecks.
Do you ever see yourself leading a more regular life in the future? Define regular. We all live regular, just some more regular than others.

What resources or tools do you use you can’t live without? I cannot live with out the world, in terms of giving me things to laugh at and my brain to compute that into a performance. Also a computer to write my blah blahirous content.  Other things are cheesy, loved ones and my dog. I also cant live without air and water, how deep do you want me to go?

What advice do you have for people who are tired of the regular 9-5 grind, and want more independence and freedom from a lifestyle business? My advice is challenge yourself to release from the grind. I have accepted less and gained more.  Thailand has been good to me in this respect, I have enough money for a nice home and a  Pick-up truck and good food, in London the car would be as less as the food and house.

In the end if it goes right, they will say they always believed in you, but if it goes wrong, they will say they warned you. Listen to advise, but make your own decision.

Women are severely underrepresented in this article. Not because I don’t know any location independent women but because none I approached replied. I would like to interview women for a future posts to get their unique angle on this lifestyle. So if your a digital, nomadic woman and want to tell the world about your adventures in commerce and travel, please get in touch.

If you are currently living a location independent lifestyle or are feeling inspired, we want to hear from you too. Leave your comments below.

5 Customer Service Channels Every Business Should Have

April 15, 2015 in Guest Posts, Product News & Reviews by Perry

As a business owner, it always amazes me the different channels through which people prefer to send me an inquiry.

You’d think everyone would just shoot for the contact page – nine times out of ten it’s in the navigation menu anyways.

And yet everyday I receive a customer inquiry from a channel I wasn’t expecting.

Customer service inquiries are opportunities. Somebody is having difficulty, is confused, or perhaps is just curious.

Regardless, it’s important that I get all of them and that the person doesn’t bounce before asking their question.

Here are the 5 channels we utilize at NinjaOutreach, our blogger outreach software.

Phone Support

Many businesses don’t offer phone support, because they aren’t large enough and don’t have the resources for someone to be sitting by the phone.

Additionally, many customers hate phone support because we associate it with long waiting times, run arounds, and just overall poor experience.

Call me old-fashioned, but I think there is still a place for phone support if it’s done correctly.

As a result, I put my personal cell phone number at the top of our website.

Call Our CEO

And believe it or not, people call, almost every week.

A lot of these people are looking for immediate gratification, or they have some very specific they are asking about.

For example, an agency might call and want some specific insight into a campaign they are running and how our tool can benefit them. It’s not the usual does you tool offer this feature question, and it would be a pain to type out.

Additionally, by saying that it’s the “CEO” they know who they are getting on the other line.

Lastly, for me it’s an opportunity to have a real, person to person interaction with someone and say “Yes, I am a human!

Live Chat Customer Widget

Halfway between phone support and an email is a live chat widget.

On the one hand, they still have to type out their response.

But on the other, they get immediate gratification and get to “speak” with a human on the other end.

It’s a nice balance between the two.

There are dozens of chat widgets that can integrate with your site. We use Zopim because it’s free and simple.

There are two features I like about Zopim.

The first is that it allows me to initiate conversations with people on my website. That’s really cool and there is nothing else I use that can do that.

Not only that but I get a lot of nifty information about them, such as the page they are on, how many time they’ve visited the website, and information about their device:


If it’s someone I’ve run into before, I might have a name and some notes. It’s a functional CRM in that regard.

The other thing I like is the ability for someone to send me offline messages, because let’s face it; I’m not on 24/7.


Contact Page

Of course, we have a contact page too – who doesn’t.

But we try to make it not so boring, as well as to collect a bit more information about the customer.

To do this we use the free wordpress plugin contact 7.

Most people just plug this in and forget it, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

But if you weren’t aware, you can customize the fields. Here’s what ours looks like:

Form 1

What’s awesome is I can ask about the plan that they are on, how they’re feeling, what department they need, or anything else.

As a result, my team will get messages in their inbox that look like this (I’ve hidden the personal details):

Form Reply

This way we can all see it and the first person who is able to can respond. We can prioritize the inquiries based on the level of stress the customer is dealing with and make sure we provide the best support to our premium clients.

Knowledge Base

If you’re selling any sort of tool that requires the user to do something remotely technical, you should have a Knowledge Base.

This should be the first line of defense for customer support, as a means to help lighten the load.

It doesn’t have to be fancy. Ours is simply a page that looks like the following and contains videos:

Knowledge Base

One thing I recommend is to include both video AND text, as some people prefer to read, whereas others are visual learners.

We include our knowledge base in the signature of just about every email that goes out, to make sure people have a place to go for the easy questions.


Twitter is so much more than a social media channel on which you can promote your content.

It’s a very powerful tool for business. For example:

We use it as a form of lead generation, where we ask people if they are interested in trying out the software.

We also use it in our follow up series, where we ask signups if they have activated it yet.

And it looks like it is developing into a huge customer service tool as well.

studies have shown that 42% of consumers expect a response within one hour when they contact a brand on social media.


Luckily, some companies, like Hubspot, have caught onto this.

They created a spinoff Twitter account @HubSpotSupport.

@HubSpot handles basic questions and inquiries, while @HubSpotSupport handles more specific support requests.

Hubspot Twitter


Customer shouldn’t have to jump through hoops to contact you.

You should be inviting them.

Giving Back – Cambodian Kids Care Center

December 22, 2014 in Amazing Thailand, Koh Chang by Perry

Cambodian Kids Care Center

It’s always good to give back. This year we choose the Cambodian Kids Care Center on Koh Chang, Thailand.

voluteer thailandCambodian Kids Care Center is a school for the children of illegal Cambodian workers on the island of Koh Chang, Trat Thailand.

The children’s parents work in construction, gardening and in the luxury resorts throughout Koh Chang. Often you will see children of these poor migrant workings on the building sites.

This center offers these kids aged between 6 and 15 years old a safe refuge and free education by teacher Uan. They learn Thai, English and Maths from Monday to Friday.

We had a fun day making strawberry smoothies, distributing presents and helping out over lunch. The kids sang Christmas carols in perfect pitch and pronunciation.

We would like to thank all our friends in Bangkok, Foto Relax, friends in Siam Royal View, Monkey’s Restaurant and Scuba Dawgs for donating presents, money, food and their time and making a real difference to these bright young kids.

If you would like to help visit the Cambodian Kids Care Center Facebook page or contact teacher Uan or Administrator Aaron on 09-243-4712.

Merry Christmas everybody!

Top 10 Tips for Digital Nomads Going ‘Home’ for Christmas

October 3, 2014 in Digital Nomad by Perry

Many digital nomads find themselves going back ‘home’ for Christmas to catch up with friends and family.

If you are brave enough to go back to your hometown at this time of year to face the crowds, rampant consumerism and religious bonhomie, you may want to read my top ten tips to get you over the culture shock.

1. It’s cold – it was cold yesterday and will be cold tomorrow. Don’t wear shorts!

2. Yes! It’s OK to wear your shoes in the house.

3. You can’t buy winter woolies – the shops already stock the Spring/Summer collections.

4. People will try to be nice, at least one day a year, mainly when consuming lashings of booze.

5. You won’t want to tell people about all the amazing places your been to for fear of being perceived as a braggart.

6. You may have to work for an hour or two over the holidays – some of your friends and family just don’t get it. (Santa can do it, why can’t you?)

7. To send Christmas cards or not to send Christmas cards? Send them a GIF instead!

8. By the time Christmas actually arrives your friends will be desperate for a break from work. You can tell them life doesn’t have to be this way.

9. You tell your family not to get you a present. You pack light and travel fast.

10. Everyone starts to think of a New Year Resolution and next year they will become a Digital Nomad just like you and travel the world.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I'm always Merry at Christmas

How to be Location Independent as a Writer

September 25, 2014 in Digital Nomad, Guest Posts by Perry Stevens

High quality Wi-Fi is the life blood of the digital nomad traveling to any part of the world that has a steady stream of electricity. Hotels are picked based on their suitability for an office, not on best view. This group blends in with the backpackers who are fighting to make their minimum budgets stretch from coast to coast. They may be grungy roamers, but they have a credit card, and PayPal deposits twice a week. These deposits are minimal but it fills them with pad-ka-pow, covers them with a bamboo roof, and gets them on the next flight to Bangkok. How do these “suitcasers” make a living writing online? How do they remain location independent?

The Big Mango - Jake NeedhamIn the Beginning

Often when someone thinks of a freelance writer, they get images of best-selling authors like Jake Needham. They think that a career in writing belongs to the elite. While these authors are busy writing books, somebody has to write web content. In fact, the qualifications for entry level content writing are very low. Did you pass English in the 10th grade? You are probably qualified. Low qualifications always correspond with low pay. Entry level content writers make one cent per word. Assignments will typically be around 500 words. If you could write an assignment in an hour you would make a whopping five dollars an hour. The problem is a new writer won’t even be able to write an article in three hours let alone one. Add in the time finding work and editing returned assignments, you will probably make $1.50 an hour. Never fear, it goes up from here.


Freelance writers need to constantly improve their writing abilities. The more practice you have had putting thoughts into written words the quicker they will pour though your hands. The more time you have spent contemplating the difference between the colon or semicolon, the quicker you will become in selecting correct punctuation. Practice outlining articles and researching subject matter will also improve your word count per hour.

Speed is only going to get you so far. If you ever want to be paid more than one cent per word you need to be able to write accordingly. Content mills grade the quality of your articles. Editors are not only looking at your grammar they are seeing if you can follow detailed instructions. Master this, and you may see your rate turn into three cents per word.


Ultimately you want to get away from third parties. They take approximately 35% of your potential earnings. After enough networking you may be able to drop them permanently. One way to do this is simply by writing an email to your client. Just to let them know you are available. If they like your writing style they may choose to work with you in the future.

Guest Blog

Write articles for free, on subjects that interest you. This is a good way to start a relationship that may become profitable.

Start a Blog

Many potential employers are going to want to see examples of your writing. There is no better way than having it displayed on your own website. Alternatively, why not see if you can publish your story on Medium.

Stay Free!

Remember the main goal is to stay location independent. Don’t accidentally turn your Freelance job into slavery. The only problem with becoming a proficient writer is that people may actually want you to write.

Freelance Jobs

This guest post was written by Ryan Johnston in Phuket, Thailand. He reached out to me when I commissioned some blog posts for a client. He has spent the last few years location independent writing for clients on Textbroker and playing poker online. Playing poker online? Yes, another, slightly unorthodox way to be location independent. More of this in another post…

How to Achieve the Digital Nomad Lifestyle

September 7, 2014 in Digital Nomad by Perry Stevens

I often post photos up on my Facebook wall, Google+ and twitter showing some of the beautiful places I often find my self in; swinging through the trees in Koh Chang, hanging in The Gardens by the Bay in Singapore or lounging on one of the many almost deserted beaches in Thailand. I do this not to show off, but because I’m a douchebag and love to remind the haters back home of a different reality to their cold, grey, over priced, consumer driven, heavily taxed, time starved, corporate serving, surf existence, ha ha!

I’ve been living in Asia now for 4 years. A year ago I incorporated in Singapore, I bank in Singapore and I’ve moved just about everything in an easterly direction. I only have family and friends back in the UK now, thank fuck we have Skype.

I often get PM’s, from friends, old colleagues and even clients on Facebook who want to visit for a couple of weeks and I help facilitate their stay in Thailand so they maximize their two week vacation. I love doing this and it’s a great opportunity to catch up with lots of old friends.

How to Become a Digital Nomad

Occasionally friends contact me to asking how I manage to live out of the rat race for so long and tell me they want to do the same. Below is an edited version of one such exchange. I though would make a great starting point for a blog post that will also answers some of the very same questions you may have if you have found yourself reading my blog. I’ve kept names and some other things private out of respect and made some minor edits so it reads easy!

One Day in April…

“Hey man, Hello!!! How are you??? I’m saving hard for a trip to Asia… see you are out there at the moment so wondered if you had any hints and tips for best places to go or places you would recommend and how to work to make money stretch for as long as possible!!! We are selling as much of our stuff as possible and giving up jobs to do this…. excited and shitting my pants all at the same time!!! Haha! X

Hey (Name) I’m fine and dandy, How the devil are you? I’ve been living out in Thailand for something like 3 and a half years now. A couple of weeks ago I left Bangkok and now live on my fave island, Koh Chang. I could wax lyrical about places to go and things to see in Asia but it would be like writing a book. It’s a big place!

If you are giving up your jobs to travel you always will have a finite time and resources before you have to go back. I would recommend finding something that you can do online and generate an income. Then you can be a ‘Digital Nomad‘ and do it as long as you like.

You can live a very comfortable life in Thailand (or anywhere you choose) on a very reasonable budget. For instance, I had a one bedroom condo by the river in central Bangkok for the last 2 years, which included a gym, a swimming pool, use of a boat and a maid for 22,000thb or just over £400 p/m. I have friends who have studios apartments in the same building for 14,000thb.

Compare that with a one bedroom apartment in London that starts at 4 x monthly rental price and you don’t have a maid, outdoor swimming pool or use of a private boat to ferry you across the river. You do get high service charges for water, electricity and other taxes like the community charge, parking and congestion charge etc.

  • Update: I now live in a 2 bedroom house on Koh Chang island and pay 14,000thb. Water and electricity is an additional 1,200thb per month and my Internet is free! So I have more and pay less. Sometimes the secret to having more money is not earning more, but spending less!

Street food is great and safe to eat. A meal will set you back around £1.

how to become a digital nomad

With Friends from LA at Lebua, Bangkok

If you want to live it up you can go to the top bars, clubs and restaurants and pay comparable prices to any UK town. Best to stay local and soak up the vibe for the best deals.

Other towns in Thailand are cheaper and friendlier. South Vietnam is a fave of mine as is Singapore where my company is registered. Laos is super cheap and ultra laid back, Cambodia has its moments but I’m not generally a fan, but a must see is the Temples of Ankor Wat.

If you want to skype me and ask any questions instead of me rambling, drop me a line and we can schedule a convenient time. My Skype is (myskypename).

I would suggest you check out freelancer sites like and my half assed blog

Wicked thanks man that’s great to get me started!! Will have a bit of a research and then get back you with more questions :() We are hesitant on putting a limit on our time purely I think cos we are so hacked off with western society and the work ethic here… living bang in the middle of surrey… I’m sick of the falseness and the thought process that you can only be successful if you work yourself into the ground. But then saying that I have a fair bit of fear around if we do have to come back we would have nothing… as I am not a home owner and money we are frantically saving is for our travels. I like the idea of digital Nomad but have no skills in that area… eeekkkk x”

One of the reasons I left London was because of the shallow consumerism and celebrity culture that gets into all walks of your life. I stopped watching TV 6 years ago and get my news and information from more reliable sources than the agenda lead, mainstream media.

Everyone is conditioned to go to school and Uni and leave with a debt to the system (repaying loans in their 50’s), then conform and get a job to pay for things you don’t need to get more in debt etc. Then you are locked in the system with little or no chance of escape. A slave!

Anyone can break free if they really want to and it doesn’t have to be hard. Society will tell you your crazy etc. but they haven’t got the balls to break free. Our values are all wrong. Who needs a big car, big house and 100 pair of shoes?

Think about the skills and qualities you have and see how you can adapt them to online. You’ll be surprised! As I say, there is always someone who will pay for a service you can provide. My girlfriend is a great designer and artist but lacked the opportunities or knowledge to go it alone via the net. Now she works when she wants online, making graphics for companies and dresses for other peeps. All her friends still work in offices 12 hours a day + commute for 15.000thb a month. She works less and earns more and has more fun doing it.

If you really have no skills to work online, learn some. They are skills you can learn easily when you apply yourself. You are investing in your future, forget the rat race and the dogma. Free up your time, your life and your mind!! You can do anything you want to do if you really want to do it. If I can do it, anyone can!!: )Perry.

More Recently in September…

Hey (Name), are you on track to quit the rat race?

Hey man, I’m on track in my mind… kinda… just looking at cheaper places to live so we can save more to F off faster!!! As currently we can’t save anywhere near enough and it’s getting us really down in the dumps… so we don’t bother at all to save etc. etc…

Still no idea what it is I could do being a digital nomad… although it sounds amazing!!! I mean… my jobs alright… but it’s sucking out my soul… working in adoption… it really ain’t what people think it is… it’s working for the government and we all know what that does to you!!!

(Name), my man works in lettings and hates it… he puts on a tie every day and calls it the “rope”… we seriously need plan of action before this society engulfs us!!! How’s life on the beach?? Haha x

I have other friends in a similar position as you. Working in adoption must be pretty tough, I was adopted myself and my folks still foster, so I know how hard that is but rewarding at the same time.

I own a tie, never wore it. It hangs in my closet as a reminder! ha ha!!

Do you have secretarial skills? I sure you could be a virtual assistant and work online if you did.

There are so many things you can do online. I’m sure you and (Name) have skills or could learn new ones and start earning money online. Social Media Managers for instance, earn big bucks looking after a few client’s fb pages, twitter and Pinterest. You can soon scale it up and make good money.

I just got back from BKK. My gf and I, if she gets a visa will be in the UK for Halloween. Quick trek back to update my passport and see the family. Then I’m outta there and back to the beach!

I get very frustrated working in children’s services though… becomes about ticking government boxes rather than helping children sometimes… which is not why I went into it. Wow your folks still foster… that’s amazing!!! Those ideas look doable… My boyfriend is a whiz at online stuff… where do you look for that work? I could do online sec stuff but would have to brush up on a few bits and grammar eeek x

Yep my folks are awesome and in their 70’s. In fact it’s my father’s 75th birthday on Halloween. One of the reasons we are heading over.

We should Skype and brain storm your skill bases and I will be able to match you with stuff you can do online, show you where to go etc. You can start at home in your own time and build up a client base so you don’t end up on the streets. All very doable! I’m actually going to develop a course (online) for people who want to find a way to work online and stick the finger to the man! It would be great to help you guys out in the process.

END… Time to Take Action!

FYI – You will probably live to be around 80. Do you think trading 1 year of your life for 50 years of freedom is a pretty good deal compared to spending 50 years doing shit you would prefer not to, just to feel ‘safe’, pay the mortgage or the student loan off?

Perry & Gio - Digital Nomad Lifestyles

Gio & Perry

I have a friend, Gio who knew nothing about SEO (Search Engine Optimization). He came over to Thailand for a month and stayed for two. He sat by my side and learned by looking over my shoulder every day. Towards the end of his 2 months I gave him a number for a SEO company in Bangkok. He walked in and they created a new position for him. The last thing I said before he left for his interview was that he knew more than they did. He didn’t believe me, but it was true, and he got a job.

How long do you think it will take him to be super successful? Just take action! He now works for me and we are also partners on two other online start-ups.

All it takes is a little hard work and the desire to grow. This is why most jobs are so lethal. Every entrepreneur you will ever know grows 10x more every year while people stuck in jobs only grow at a rate of 0.2% after they figure out their job. It’s a growth death trap and no way to LIVE life.

If you do repetitive tasks that are pretty much the same every day then your brain stops growing and you become robot-like, not a thinker or a game changer. Your brain can do incredible things and you have the ability to learn incredible things. Don’t squander the best years of your life. Invest in your future.

“How are you making money and living life on your terms as a digital nomad?”

I’m always getting asked “What do you do” or “How do you make money online?” etc. I don’t openly sell anything on this blog or allow advertisers. However there are some affiliate links throughout the site and if you click on them I make a small commission. I don’t make anywhere near enough to make a living from them! They may buy me a beer every now and again. They are certainly not a sustainable income source for me. I’ve tried affiliate marketing, but it isn’t for me.

At the time of writing I have 4 primary income sources;

  1. Website Audits – We offer a comprehensive audit of your website to find out the good, bad and ugly health of your most important online asset. I charge $997 and get 2-3 sales per month.
  2. Website Development – we design and build stunning website that convert for local business. The average build is $5000 and we produce at least 1 per month.
  3. Citation Building – we claim, clean and optimize local business directory listings. Average 2-3 sales per month between $800 and $4000.
  4. Clients – I work with local businesses and do consulting and service work for them. This is the main part of my business and income. I have 15+ clients.

How to Achieve a Digital Nomad LifestyleSoon we will be launching a membership site for the main niche we work in. This will be based on a recurring income model. The average membership fee and additional services will be in the region of $400 per month. This niche has 26,000 registered professionals in the USA alone. We are only looking to have only 100 members in the first year. Imagine if we got 1% of the 26,000!

Back in 2007 I knew nothing about SEO, websites or even heard of the term ‘Digital Nomad‘. I knew one thing, I wanted to have a laptop lifestyle and have the freedom to travel. My story just goes to show that if you work smart and want to invest in your future success, there is not better place than finding your ‘thing’ online and making it happen. Where are you going to be a year from now!

Island Life – Picture Perfect Laptop Lifestyle

April 27, 2014 in Internet Marketing Lifestyle, Koh Chang by Perry Stevens

Laptop Lifestyle - Working on a TanI’ve been off the radar lately but I’ve not disappeared entirely. I have just been busy with other multiple projects and never found the time to get back on my blog.

Koh Chang

When I first started this journey in South East Asia I was on the island of Koh Chang. One of my favorite place in the whole world. For the last three years I’ve been living in Bangkok but for some time I’ve wanted to escape the city (even though I have had a mini break every couple of months). I love Bangkok and it’s an easy place to live and travel from. I can generally be at an international airport between 30 and sixty minutes and fly to Oz, Singapore, Bali, HCMC or any other of my favorite destinations.

However the appeal to go out and party like I used to and with the current political crisis lurching towards civil ward, I thought it made for the perfect time to get out the city and get back to natural and slower pace of life. So here I am again, where it all started on Koh Chang, elephant island.

I’ve also recently incorporated my business in Singapore for better tax efficiency and let’s face it, it’s only a 2 hour flight there and not a full day getting back to the grey, old UK. So moving homes and moving a business has kept me busy (Aren’t the the two most stressful things you can do?). I’ve also teamed up with one of my company managers to start another business and we are spending all our time ‘out of work hours’ setting that up. I won’t say anything about it here for now but it’s a very exciting project and one that I have dreamed about for a long time.

Are You Living the Laptop Lifestyle? IM Always Happy 2 Help!

So now I’m setting up a comfortable home with my girlfriend and looking to purchase some land on the island to build our dream home, get off-grid and produce our own food. We have already started planting on a small scale and hope to soon taste the fruits of our labor. Things grow fast in this tropical climate! So watch out for gardening tips and building a sustainable home here soon.

With that being said, it’s time to go and water the plants. I’m in domestic bliss!

Happy Happy New Year

January 5, 2014 in Internet Marketing Lifestyle by Perry Stevens

Happy New Year or ‘Suk san wan pii mai’ to all our lovely Thai readers.

We just got back from a weeks holiday in paradise and I wanted to write a blog to round up last year and look at the future. 2013 was quite a year both professionally and personally for me. I love to travel and was fortunate to visit many beautiful Thai islands for mini breaks like my favorite Koh Chang, and Koh Samet as well as new places like Koh Si Chang, Koh Tao and Ko Nang Yuan. I also had longer trips combining business with pleasure in the UK, Malaysia, Bali, Laos and Australia.

Happy New Year Living the DreamRunning a business from my Mac Book and sometime only my Galaxy S4 smartphone gives me so much freedom even I sometimes have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming.

One of the benefits of traveling is it opens you up to a new way of thinking. I enjoy dropping in and experiencing strange new worlds and cultures. There is a lot to learn from people who have had a totally different education, life experiences, challenges and obstacles to overcome. But the one universal unifying thing that I’ve noticed that binds us all together is we are all searching for something that makes us happy.

This year my happiness levels rose to a new high when I first met my girlfriend. I used to travel alone but it’s more fun sharing those beautiful and romantic sunsets with someone you love than taking that ‘selfie’ of ‘the moment’!

Business has also grown experientially this year after flying back to the UK in April and breaking up ‘the partnership’. Now I’m the CEO and back in charge of what I set out to do with my company before I brought a partner on board. This ‘split’ was traumatic at the time but has proved to be the most positive experience of the year. I would advice anyone in business to stick to his or her gut instinct, if it doesn’t feel right, do something about it before the negativity sets in.

Due to my new found happiness, I’ve been posting a lot more photos online from exotic locations and a client recently asked me ‘How does one get a life like yours? The truth is it’s quite easy to get a life like mine. I really am ‘Joe Schmoe’. Even though I’m seen in beautiful places with a beautiful partner, the reality is it cost me less than half the price to live this life than it did when I lived in London. I also have very limited overheads when it comes to an office and staffing. The perceived cost of ‘living the dream’ of my Internet marketing Lifestyle and the reality are two very different things.

With that being said, an old friend reached out to me a couple of days ago, as he wants to escape the rat race and start a new life in Thailand. We are going to catch up on Skype later today and go through the options. Shortly I will be writing a guide to ‘Living in Thailand’ and lay out from my personal experience what you need to do and more importantly what not to do.

Another high point for 2013 (well two actually) was meeting one of my oldest clients and collaborators personally. The first was ‘Dr. P’ from Los Angeles USA who decided to make Thailand her winter vacation with her husband and the second was my main man for graphics and art direction from Pakistan who actually joined my friends and I for my birthday dinner. The Internet has been instrument in allowing us to work new business models that were not available to us ten years ago and it still amazes me the global/local connections we can freely make today from all corners of the globe.

I also started sponsoring a bright young man in northern Thailand and implemented a Good 2 Give policy for the company. I want to expand on this and help even more disadvantage youngsters and give them the confidence and ability to change their lives for the better through education and travel.

So although last year was simply amazing, I know 2014 has the potential to be even better.  The only way I can do that is by delivering more happiness to my clients and building the business by adding more services. This has been my vision and this year it will come to fruition.

What were your highlights of last year and your ambitions for 2014, I’d love to know. Share them with us in the comments section below and have a beautiful and prosperous new year!

Perry : )

Choosing A Job You Like

December 26, 2013 in Internet Marketing Lifestyle, Marketing Quotes by Perry Stevens

suitable job
“Choose a job that you like, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
Confucius, a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher.

Some people go into a job hunt thinking that they have absolutely no control over the job that they might end up getting in the end. Most people are easy to jump at the job that has the best financial opportunity regardless of the type of work that they are given. It’s much more important to look into an occupation that can present you with more freedom, or something that you find more interesting.

Less Stressful

We spend a large amount of our waking hours sitting at a desk or sitting at work. Although a 40 hour week doesn’t sound like much in the grand scheme of things, many of us work well and above these hours and when we consider working this much over a lifetime these hours can really add up. This is why enjoying the time that you spend working is very important. There are bound to be some stressful days in any job that you take on but regularly experiencing stress or discomfort in the workplace can lead to health concerns and severely impact your quality of life.

I love what I do for a living so 99% of the time it really doesn’t feel like work. Another big plus point for me is the freedom my live/work lifestyle affords me. I enjoy lots of mini holidays, work from beautiful resorts, by the pool or in my pants in my condo!: )

Take Your Options

If you are already stuck in a job where you feel trapped or you are experiencing an abnormal amount of stress every single day, it’s very important to look into the options you have. We live in a very exciting time. Working online is now easier than ever before and you have resources available to you such as online freelancing websites, living the Internet marketing lifestyle or even becoming an entrepreneur to eventually attain the freedom of being able to work on a beach. You can start small and begin working part-time to check out some of these options for yourself but it is important to note that selecting a job you enjoy doing is a great way that you can get the most out of life and the hours that you work as well as achieve financial security.
