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.

"Never have a plan B, it distracts from plan A."

This quote from Will Smith has served as an inspiration for me for many many years.

When I first moved to Costa Rica and became a digital nomad I didn't have a safety net or a plan B.

The same thing was true when I started my freelance copywriting business, and starting my coaching business.

If you don't know me, I'm Dan Johnston. I'm an ENFP originally from Vancouver, Canada, but now living in Europe. I moved to Costa Rica in 2012 and began my journey being location independence.

Podcast is usually not the place to make big announcements about marriage or having kids...but us ENFPs are a little crazy right? 

OK, OK, sorry for the shock joke! How could I resist? Now, about the episode: I've been asked by a fellow ENFP with ADHD if I want children, as someone with the ENFP personality.

It got me pondering whether or not I want children, and more importantly, how I was looking at big decisions like this.

I started thinking about how I was thinking about marriage, parenting, and my future.

Whether or not you're a parent yet, I want to share some of my insights into this topic that might completely re-frame your thinking about success in life, marriage and having kids.

We’ve all heard some of the traditional financial advice, like - always save 10% and make sure you compound your interest.

This may work for ISTJs, but for ENFPs it usually just stays another cliche money advice. I'd like to share some realistic financial advice for ENFPs. 

If you’re an ENFP freelancer or entrepreneur, you may experience financial ups and downs and generally struggle with managing money when you’re starting out.

Before you get back to a boring soulless 9-5 job, I have some realistic money advice for you that might help.

Some of you may know that I've started working with my girlfriend Gabby recently.

She is now our video editor and designer and her amazing work inspired me to create this episode with some insights on how to earn more money as a freelancer.

There are three types, or better yet traits, of freelancers and if you have at least two of them, your client will most likely appreciate your work and will end up paying you more.

In the majority of cases this depends on you and your attitude towards your work, so hear me out if you want to be proud of your work - and get paid more.

I've been having fun (or business!) here in Ronda, Spain where I'm hosting an event this week and wanted to record a podcast exclusive episode on my experience eating out here, reflecting on the past year and also a quick podcast update (you can help me with this!).

I'm also sharing some things I'm very excited about and a great trick on slowing down the time.

Whether or not you yourself are an idealist personality type (ENFP, INFP, INFJ or ENFJ), you’ll eventually work with idealists as their boss or employee. You may find the situation quite frustrating.

I’m an ENFP and have worked with ENFPs, INFPs, and INFJs many times. When focused and motivated idealists can be extremely hard working, but other times you may find yourself thinking "Why can't you just get this done as I asked?!"

So, what's the secret to managing and motivating idealist types?

Be sure to share this episode with whoever you are doing business with. ;)

Here's my best ENFP job interview tips to help you avoid the wrong career or getting trapped in a job you hate. 

ENFPs love learning, challenges and newness - all the things that come with a new job. In this episode I want to offer some job interview tips as well as answer the question: Should you lie in a job interview? (Everyone does right?!)

As an ENFP there are things you do exceptionally well and others that you're really bad at. But there are some things you are good at, hate doing BUT if you force yourself - you get them DONE!

This can be a dangerous combination with our ENFP charm and ability to tell people what they want to hear…especially if that person is your potential new boss.

As an ENFP, well, I tend to spend money when I shouldn't! Learn from my mistakes and follow this minimalist business advice so you can spend more time pursuing your dreams and growing your business instead of worrying about money. 

If you're an aspiring freelancer, coach or consultant, this episode is for you because I don't want you to make the same kind of mistakes I see over and over again. Here’s how NOT to waste your money when you are starting a new business.

I've been working with freelancers, coaches and consultants for about 6 years now, both as a one-on-one coach and leader in The Free Freelancer coaching and training program. The kinds of mistakes I notice often cost - and literally cost - people their dreams and the possibility of doing the thing they love.

In this episode I'm offering some helpful advice on what NOT to spend your money on when starting your freelance business.

If you're an ENFP pursuing your dreams, getting good with your finances and spending less is essential.

Keep an eye out, we're releasing a follow-up of this episode in just a few hours!

If you’re a creative personality (like us ENFPs and INFPs) you may struggle with getting started on your creative work or just not producing nearly as much as you’d wish.

So the question is, how can creative people get MORE done?

As an ENFP, INFP, or other creative type you may feel stuck and feel like you’re wasting your talents when distractions like technical issues or preparation take you out of your creative energy.

Listen to this episode to find out how to maximize your creativity by properly preparing your spaces – whether that is mental, time or work space. I’ll share some of my own examples that have really helped me.

OK. I'll admit it, I should have answered this question like, 3 years ago?

If you're an ENFP or INFP you probably like I have a million passions and want to do everything so usually I do nothing (or everything) so how can I ever decide what I want to do or pick just one passion...

Whoa, slow down! These are just podcast episode notes.

Can you just click the damn play button and stop reading? You're not going to find your answers here.

My mission here at Dreams Around The World is to help you become the best version of yourself all while creating the most awesome life possible for you and those you love.

It is just WEIRD that up to now I didn't have an episode answering the question: How do I find out what my passion is?

What should you do with your life? You've probably heard that you should follow your passion and then you'll live a life full of purpose.

But how the heck do you discover what your passion is?
