4 Question Series W/ Lindsay McMahon

Check out the video!

Check out my interview with Lindsay McMahon, owner of All Ears English. She’s got a great story and had a unique path to digital nomading. This interview is part of my 4 question series where I ask successful digital nomads from all over the world and all walks of life to answer the 4 questions we all want to know the answer to.

  1. Who are you? Tell us about what you do and how you got where you are.
  2. Where is your favorite place to work remote?
  3. What are 2 tips you would give someone who wants to work at your favorite place?
  4. What are (or were) your biggest fears around working abroad? And how did you address these?

Have questions about digital nomading? Message me on Instagram, I’m happy to answer them

00:09
answers to so we’re coming in here with

00:13
about what you do and how you got into
00:14
digital marketing sure
00:16
and digital nomad working specifically i
00:18
mean i’m more of an education
00:19
ed tech owner so i have a company called
00:21
allers english
00:23
we teach english as a second language to
00:25
adults around the world
00:26
uh and how i got into digital nomad i’m
00:29
not a traditional digital nomad i
00:31
haven’t really worked in vietnam like
00:33
like you have i’ve i’ve lived in japan
00:36
um
00:36
but you were japan yeah but not as a
00:38
nomad actually so my work has been more
00:41
within the us
00:42
so i lived in la for a couple of months
00:43
lived in boston for a long time and now
00:45
have relocated to denver
00:47
i’m very happy about the choice killer
00:49
so for a lot of people out there you
00:51
don’t necessarily have to start on like
00:52
a digital marketing i shouldn’t even
00:54
said digital yeah i’m not sure i have to
00:55
start on a traditional digital nomad
00:57
lifestyle
00:58
sometimes you kind of work your way into
01:00
that okay so what is your favorite place
01:02
that you’ve worked abroad
01:04
so probably japan i have to say japanese
01:06
it’s awesome
01:07
or uh argentina okay argentina is
01:10
awesome
01:11
and what are two tips you would give for
01:14
one of our aspiring or existing digital
01:16
nomads
01:16
who would like to work in japan well i
01:19
would
01:20
say work with the population you want to
01:22
work with i wanted to work with adults
01:24
and i didn’t really want to do the jet
01:26
program the jet program is the typical
01:28
thing a lot of people think they have to
01:29
do that to go to japan
01:31
but look at other options i wanted to
01:33
live in tokyo so think about the
01:34
lifestyle that you want
01:36
in your actual life i wanted to be in a
01:38
cosmopolitan area so that jet
01:40
was going to send me to the countryside
01:42
so look at other options beyond just
01:44
what’s in front of you
01:45
for sure yeah so for a lot of people
01:46
let’s think about the lifestyle first
01:48
and then kind of reverse engineer what
01:50
you want from there
01:51
exactly because that’s what it’s about
01:52
right the poor value so actually
01:55
don’t just fall into all the typical
01:56
buckets yeah i would say yeah
01:58
absolutely so what are your two biggest
02:01
fears around
02:02
when you are traveling kind of digital
02:04
nomadic working abroad and how do you
02:06
handle it yeah i mean just last week we
02:08
are just last month we went to arkansas
02:09
so
02:10
this is not your sexy like let’s go to
02:12
vietnam or anything but we went to
02:13
arkansas
02:14
rented a um just an airbnb house to get
02:17
away and work abroad have a workation
02:19
so i was certainly concerned of how well
02:21
the internet how how
02:22
well the internet would work absolutely
02:24
uh things like that so
02:26
i guess internet connection actually is
02:27
still something how do you handle it i
02:29
have a hot spot that i use
02:30
so um just verizon i added to my phone
02:33
plan
02:33
okay i just turn it on and it’s always
02:35
reliable so just mentally knowing i have
02:37
it there i don’t have to use it but i
02:38
can
02:39
i can have it in mind for sure and is
02:41
that verizon hot spot international or
02:43
just national uh
02:44
well it’s only national right now
02:46
because i’m not bouncing around the
02:47
