Dreams Around The World with Dan Johnston

You've only got one life, so why not design it around your own personality, dreams, and desires? I’m Dan Johnston and I do my best to help you become the best version of yourself all while creating an awesome life for you and those you love. Personally, I value freedom and experiences over money and things and even if the seas are a bit rougher, I’d rather be the Captain of my own ship.​ I, and the occasional guest, cover a range of topics from psychology and MBTI personality types (you know, that whole ENFP, INFP, INFJ, INTJ thing) to freelancing and entrepreneurship. Since I am location independent (a Canadian currently living in Prague), I also talk about travel and being a digital nomad from time to time.

Yeah Yeah, you're "working on" writing a book or screenplay right? How much work are you doing, compared to say, watching videos about writing? Writing can be a very rewarding experience, but only if you actually WRITE!

You may not think of yourself as a dabbler, but if you're an infp or enfp personality, or you're just someone who tends to change directions too often, then dabbling may be killing your chances of success.

Whether you are an introvert like an INFP, INFJ, or intj, or you're a more empathetic extrovert like an ENFJ, ESFP, or ENFP, you probably HATE cold calling and having to put pressure on someone to buy from you. The traditional high-pressure selling approach likely makes you vomit.

Don't worry! Consultative selling will turn sales on its head and help you close more deals...aka getting more clients...all while actually enjoying the process and using your introversion and empathy to HELP you be a great sales person.

Is being a Digital Nomad really enough!? What about being location independent? 

Jun 26, 2017

If you want to know how to become a digital nomad or location independent, I would say there are generally 3 different approaches to working online. How you choose to work online is up to you, but you'll see in the video, my preference is for freelance work.

If freelancing isn't for you (why not!?), then you can consider a remote job, a job that lets you work from anywhere as long as you get the work done. Personally, I think being a freelancer digital nomad is a great place to start, but that's just me.

Lastly, you can consider any number of online business ideas. This is a topic for a whole video series in itself (and I'll make it...eventually!), but for now I just include my thoughts on online business and how it compares to working remotely and freelancing work.

A listen asks: 
I hope you are doing alright ... First of all, I'm a gay male, atheist, and INFP. I'm not facing acceptances in my family, friends, and community. No one knows the truth about me, except some of my internet friends. That let me feel so bad about myself and leads me to face depression alone because I can't live my life like who I'm and no one will understand ...

After a few years, I'll finish my college study in computer field ... Then I'll face difficult decision ... to leave my country to live happily and be myself like I want but it will make me lose my family, being shamed and most of all unable to return to my country for rest of my life ... Because they will not understand or accept ... I tried to hint and talk about stuff like gay people and atheist but there were terrible answers like "They need to be killed or being hurt and thrown in jail" ...

So do you have any advises or tips for me?

Anyway, thank you for reading my message... and I'll understand if you are unable to answer me...

Each day we wake up with a limited amount of discipline...but there are ways to maximize this and, at least appear to, become a discipline machine. One way to do this is making it easy and forming habits.

When you imagine happy, I doubt you're imagining a stone-faced Northern German or Scandinavian and yet these countries always rate at the top of happiness and life satisfaction indexes.

We've all heard how important it is to be held accountability. Hire a coach! Join a mastermind! Get accountability...BULL$HIT!!! Let me tell you WHY this way of thinking is such a HUGE MISTAKE.

Finding the right job, career or profession as an INFJ can be difficult. You need to be challenged... and working for a moron is out of the question!

Have you ever noticed that when you think of a new business idea or just want to ask a girl out on a date that we tend to play out every possible scenario in our head. Where should I take her? How do I generate leads? If you make one simple change to your mindset, then you will achieve the results that you want and change your life in the process.

Sure it may suck if you lose all your money, but even if that happens you have still won. You gained employable and marketable skills that can get you employment, you learned what not to do, and you pursued your dream and can rest easily knowing that you tried. So go out there and fail, take action and learn. In a year from now, you will be much better than you started in spite of the failure.
