On today’s show we have Matt Javit (He lives online at https://passportjoy.com/). A few years back Matt and Nicki got the travel bug, and they didn’t get this bug in form of tenuous thought or notion that, “Yeah …. One day, once we have enough money and freedom we’ll travel the world.”
They got in an, “Okay. What actionable steps do we need to take to make this dream happen kind of way”
Those actionable steps included budgeting, making sure they came back home to careers (Money matters mmkay), selling all of their stuff, and then telling all of their loved ones their plans.
“How you do one thing is how you do everything.” – Matt Javit
So if you’ve ever wanted to know just how much money it costs to travel around the world for a year, how to enjoy yourself despite being in a different culture than you’re used to, how to react when faced with a source of constant negativity, or just how incredibly thoughtful and different the Japanese culture really is … then be sure to check out this episode of “The Process” podcast.
