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.

I’ve recently received a question from Lilla who is marketing her business by cold emailing new clients. How to send cold emails to get more clients while keeping your sanity in the process? 

When you’re a freelancer working for yourself and marketing your business by cold emailing, you might get discouraged, especially if you are an idealist personality type like ENFP, INFP or INFJ.

In this episode I want to talk about my perspective on this and share some useful cold email tips and advice.
