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.

Now, me as an ENFP, and Tara, as an INFP, we are very well acquainted with our great desire for new things we would like to pursue. The thing with any successful business, writing included, is it needs focus and consistency to make it really enjoyable and profitable. So how do we stay focused when writing?

In the third part of the INFP/ENFP writer's chat Tara and I, are sharing the valuable routines and tools NFPs can use to boost their writing consistency. It helped with our careers as freelance writer, copywriter and Author - it can help with yours.

OK, freelance writing might not be the quickest route to a yacht and Miami penthouse but that doesn't mean you can't earn good money writing. Plus, it's somewhat safer than the Scarface route to riches and all said, at least equally as appealing on your tinder profile.

In this episode Tara (INFP) and I (ENFP) discuss our writing careers which include freelance writing, copywriting, and becoming an Author. Specifically, we're talking about how we got paid well doing work we really enjoyed.

Perhaps the perfect career for an ENFP or INFP is to become a paid writer or author. Many famous INFPs and Famous ENFPs are famous for their books...especially those INFP fantasy Authors! In this chat, Tara, an INFP, and myself, an ENFP, discuss our two writing careers including freelance writing, copywriting, editing, and being authors. 

Fun fact, Tara is actually editing my new book which will be out very soon :)

What does clubbing in New York and being mocked and laughed at in Italy have to do with success?

Well, in my own life - A LOT.

As an ENFP, I like to do what's fun. The ENFP Personality loves adventure, exploration, and gets excited by new possibilities. It's just fun!

But if you think you're just going to get to do what's FUN and be successful, you're going to get disappointed.

There's a reason everything good in life has barriers to entry and why you'd have to be willing to do things that you don't find that much fun.

I hope my personal story will help inspire you to push through to your goal, build an awesome work ethic, and get to live that life you dream about!

How do you deal with haters when you're starting a business that's a bit more on what people would call the "woo-woo" side?

This can be intuitive healing, reiki, energy work or any type of business that many people find hard to wrap their heads around.

How can you believe in yourself, but also establish a successful business when faced with haters?

Should you ignore them or take some parts as constructive criticism?

This advice will help even if you're not specifically on the "woo-woo side" of things, but you're facing a lot of hate all the same.

Nalini from Canada, a fellow ENFP, sent me a question about making a lifechanging decision and starting her own business.

If you're a regular listener, you've probably heard me talking about assets, thinking ahead and thinking long-term when it comes to building a sustainable business. 

I'm trying to keep in touch with you via more frequent episodes and YouTube videos. Today I wanted to share a few of my thoughts related to the uncertain times we're facing due to coronavirus, if it makes sense to even start a business now, and how to make the most of the quarantine time.

If you or someone you care about has struggled to make their "lifestyle business" into anything other than a cash pit, this episode's for you. Here's a potential reason why - and a solution! 

It isn't uncommon for ENFPs and INFPs to fall victim to both multi level marketing and opportunity marketing...Those "courses" that promise a "business in a box" and amazing lifestyle.

Often these programs will use terms like entrepreneur or business owner when marketing themselves, but beyond the scenes are known as Opportunity Marketing because they're just selling a dream.

I've received a question from Steve who fell into a multilevel marketing trap and, after suffering a great loss, wants to have a real sustainable business...even if he doesn't know it yet.

If you've been failing at business, you might have been a victim of opportunity marketing scams.

Before you blow more money on sleazy marketers selling dreams and ridiculous passive income promises, listen to this episode to learn how to spot a good entrepreneurship opportunity and which ones to avoid at all costs.

Full question:

"I've had 5 traditional businesses. Then years ago I fell into the MLM trap. Finally got out of that after losing my marriage, home etc.

Then I started day trading, man I love to trade, but very hard to make consistent money in trading. Now I'm looking at affiliate marketing, but it seems to me and looks like everyone and their dogs are doing it. I also looked at writing, etc. like you and I'm not a writer.

I also tried wealthy affiliate but they are also just a cleverly disguised MLM and recruiting deal. I really want a real business but want to have it online so it can be done anywhere and give me a worldwide audience.

The 2 closest to businesses I've still found are trading and affiliate marketing. Plus they require no traditional biz headaches, like employees, overhead, inventory, etc.

Do you ever go over great business ideas? I really dream of a business that will help me be free."

"I don't want to be controlled!" As an ENFP, I'm sure you've had this thought countless times...but what if you actually created your own prison?

This episode details my recent ENFP and INTJ partnership experience in Ukraine where I had some major insights on how ENFPs function as leaders.

Whether in a business partnership or relationship context, when ENFPs are under stress, feeling overwhelmed and out of control, chances are there was a failure in our ENFP communication skills.

ENFPs are usually conflict-avoidant. We keep things inside, A LOT is happening in our ENFP intuition and we are not expressing ourselves out loud. But...as ENFP leaders, we will have to learn to step up and lead the way - or shut up!

For our ENFP relationships and businesses to thrive, we have to express ourselves, be fair to the other person and not expect them to read into our complex ENFP brain. :)

When you're an employee you are often measured on the wrong things and pick up bad habits that can hinder your success when you decide to finally work for yourself.

You may focus on the wrong priorities or structure your time poorly. Being aware of what the right mindsets are will help you take a different approach and succeed in entrepreneurship.

Here's the free training I mentioned at the end of the episode (if you're already working for yourself or are just thinking to start your entrepreneurial or freelance path, you don't want to miss this one):
