He was seen as a misfit. Everyone had a job or was starting university. Brisban wasn’t a hotbed for entrepreneurship..  How was Yaro able to travel the world and do business?  He built a business that was very leveraged, was systematized and with help from Assistants, etc.. A blog and Newsletter allowed him to create content for just 2 hours a day and that was a good day. He had an established audience. He automated much of his process. It took him 10 years to get to that digital-nomad lifestyle.What inspired Yaro to travel the world and do business at the same time? The initial inspiration came from learning about entrepreneurship in general. The Book, e-Myth by Michael Gerber played a huge role. It was instrumental to validate the idea that you could build a business that you are not the main operator. It was about wanting to build a machine that could generate passive income. 3 Powerful Quotes from This Episode“Throughout that entire time I was sitting in Cafes with my laptop and I would coordinate either a launch campaign, write a blog post or a Newsletter and the business would run behind me.”“I made a deliberate choice to build that type of business, to go after that business model. It took me 10 years.” “My goal was simply not get a job, not have a boss, not have an alarm clock, that was the worst, not have a cap on my potentia to make money, like all entrepreneurs, that one was to make a lot of money that I could actually survive. That’s what my brain was focused on.” About Yaro Starak Yaro Starak.
