The number of American digital nomads in 2020 increased 49% from the previous year to 10.9 million. Being a digital nomad means you work from anywhere with a location-independent job or business. Many digital nomads travel to countries like Croatia, Brazil, and Thailand, working from different locations for weeks or months at a time!
Everybody needs a moment away from home. It doesn’t matter if you’re 18 and fresh out of high school or 46 and in the throes of a C-suite career. Taking a vacation (or its more affordable cousin, the STAYcation) is good for your mind, body, and soul. But, before you pack a bag, take the time to plan your trip, set a budget, and get to know where you’re going before you hit the road.
Flight Fillow is pleased to present today’s post to help you prepare for your next adventure.
Think I pay someone to take professional product photos? 📸NOPE! It’s just me and my iPhone! 📱I did get a ring light to help up my game though. While huge corporations have the budget to spend $$$$ on product photos, that’s harder for a small biz to pull off. There are so many other areas for the limited funds to go! 💸 Therefore, I just use a ring light, foam boards, and free apps to get the product photos for Flight Fillow!
As many of you know, back in November I applied for Shark Tank Season 11. What you don’t know? They actually noticed my application out of the THOUSANDS wanted to talk to me! 😵 . . While I love to share Flight Fillow’s journey to growth with you, I wasn’t able to share my status during the audition process after I made it past a certain point. But now I am! 🎉 . . I’m able to share my status now because I was not selected to go to the next round. However, I’m not sad about it because I never expected to make it as far as I did! ✅ . . What is it like to apply and audition for shark tank? I could talk your ear off about it, but here it is in a nutshell - there are multiple elimination rounds, and each round doesn’t give you much notice to prepare. While this was nerve wrecking, it was great for my business because it certainly got me to accelerate our growth faster than planned since after every round I had to hustle to be ready for the next, knowing I wouldn’t have much notice after I got the call 😬 .
