How to travel like a BOSS while making over 10k a month with JohnnyFD


In 2008, JohnnyFD was 27 and leading a drone-like existence in California. But a trip to Thailand changed his life. From Scuba Diving Instructor to competitive Muay Thai fighter to his present life as a successful Digital Nomad, his awakening and path epitomizes the Borderless lifestyle.

This week’s episode finds Johnny in South Africa, about to go on a safari, but still working on his drop-shipping business. We talk about his discoveries, finding one’s groove and just how good life can be when you’re willing to think outside your borders!
