I’ve spent more time with today’s guest than I have my own family in the last few months. What makes that factoid really incredible is that Chris Ducker lives in the Philippines. Chris and I are two passionate entrepreneurs who have helped each other on several occasions. His book, Virtual Freedom, gave me some great input on how to use virtual assistants to build my business. He’s also asked me to be on his podcast and to speak at his amazing business conference next year, which you will want to hear more about because there juuuuuust might be a little surprise for listeners of The Marketing Lifestyle Show.
I can’t think of a person who lives a more glamorous marketing lifestyle than today’s guest. Every one of her YouTube videos makes me a bit jealous because they’re always shot in an exotic location (even more exotic than Columbus). Natalie Sisson, aka The Suitcase Entrepreneur, literally runs a six-figure business out of a suitcase, and she has a goal of seeing 100,000+ entrepreneurs create freedom in business and adventure in life by 2020. On today’s episode of The Marketing Lifestyle Show, Natalie talks about the incredible journey that has taken her to 68 countries and counting.
Welcome to Season 2 of The Marketing Lifestyle Show. I’m basically calling it that because I took time off and it sounds cool. HA! J/K I’ve not just had a crazy September but during that time really wanted to rediscover the podcast in a more effective way of communicating with you guys. So per the audio you’ll be listening to, we’re making a couple changes and I’m really excited about them. Let’s set this up for success, shall we?
Today’s guest interviewed me on his podcast and despite having been interviewed dozens of times, Michael O’ Neal managed to ask me questions I had never answered for an audience. In fact, he probed so deep into my thoughts, feelings and personal journey that it inspired me to devote a recent episode of The Marketing Lifestyle to just telling my story. We finally met face-to-face at the recent Podcast Movement conference in Dallas (and he was in a few videos I did there as well), where he managed to make a table of diners very uncomfortable. In this podcast, we discuss what it takes to fly solo and some of the stories of those who have made that commitment.
I’m deviating from the normal format of the Marketing Lifestyle Show this week because my email inbox is way too full. You see, my policy is to respond to every email I receive — not counting those spam emails about cheap Canadian prescription drugs. I love, love interacting with people on my email list, my social media buddies and my awesome clients. But it’s getting to be a challenge because you keep sending me great questions and comments. So today instead of doing an interview, I’m answering a few of my emails.
