How to Stay Healthy While Traveling
Do you find eating healthy is hard while you are traveling? It may not be convenient or easy but it is possible to eat healthy while traveling. It will keep you from getting sick. No one wants to be feeling like rubbish in a hotel room while in a beautiful place. Preparation is the key to staying healthy while traveling. Trevor and I have done many road trips. The summer of 2015 before we got married we went on a 2-week road trip from Seattle to Los Angeles. We shopped at grocery stores. We bought easily consumable fruits that wouldn't perish quickly like apples and bananas. We loaded up on cans of no sodium beans and corn. We bought whole grain bread, avocados, lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers for sandwiches. We created a system of organization in our backseat. It became our pantry and fridge. We brought along our one burner stove and made most of our breakfast, lunch, and dinners this way. The whole backseat area became our stockpile of food and utensils. Every day we traveled we became better at unpacking and packing. Every few days we had to reorganize and check for what supplies we needed to restock. It is possible to stay healthy while traveling. It just requires you to get creative. It also requires more preparation and clean up after meals. This is honestly the best way to do it though because you can't rely on finding healthy meals on the road. Most of the roads don't have anything really not even fast food. So you are forced to make your own. Then when you do find a place it a lot of the times is expensive and unhealthy. Here are our tips for staying healthy while road tripping and traveling.

Paul Lam is one of those people that you feel you can instantly talk to and share your feelings with. This is how he is able to connect with so many successful entrepreneurs and find out what makes them successful. He is where I get my inspiration for interviewing guest for Ecommerce Paradise podcast. The first interview we did with Aaron Atlas a digital nomad and travel writer Episode 11, I literally took Paul's questions from one of his interviews and used them as a jumping off point for the interview. I believe it made the interview flow and brought out the best of Aaron during that interview. I listened to The Path Hunters Podcast before I ever connected with Paul. If you are looking for inspiration and are still seeking your path be sure to give his podcast a listen. His mission is to inspire others to live a life filled with happiness and purpose.

Vegan Entrepreneurs In Chiang Mai, Thailand
Chiang Mai has a big community of vegan entrepreneurs. There is a wide spectrum of vegans from raw vegans, fruitarians and vegans that eat raw and cooked foods. I find that vegans are very open minded and getting into discussions leads to fascinating talk about big government and food. We have been vegan for over 4 years now and it has done wonders for our health. We hardly if ever get sick. If we do get something it's usually a 24 hour bug and goes away quickly. Eating healthy strengthens your immune system. During our travel times eating healthy really comes to our aid. Where most people would get sick from non stop traveling we can withstand it because we eat lots of fruits and vegetables. During our trip we were adventuring everyday for 8 days straight without rest. Check out more resources for e-commerce entrepreneurs: http://ecommerceparadise.com/recommended-resources

How We Broke Free Of The Rat Race and Reflecting On Our First Two Months In Thailand
Our life has changed so much in the last couple of months. Thanks to a couple of mentors, we were able to start a business last summer that has given us the ability to travel while we work and experience the world in a way we would have never had the ability to by working a 9-5 job. Traveling isn't easy, it takes a lot of research and patience. You need to make some sacrifices, especially if you have an online business and work online while you travel. The way I've figured out how to do it while being passionate about it is simply by making my work my passion.

What Is Social Entrepreneurship?
Being a social entrepreneur means you're taking on a mission that has more to do with making a positive difference in the world than making a profit. After I created my first online business, I discovered that pivoting into having a social cause would help me build my business. I put a ton of work into promoting healthy living and green energy through content and social media sharing. This type of content is shareable, can start conversations, and is perfect for getting people behind you. The result of all this work was us going vegan to support animal rights, our health, and the ecosystems of the earth, and it resulted in a huge increase in sales on our website. I recently made the decision to get back into social entrepreneurship after a few months of great sales with our main e-commerce site. We now support two non-profits with donations and content. Our goal is to find 1-3 charities to support for each of our niche sites, create content around their causes, tie their cause into our mission, and create partnerships that will last a lifetime. This podcast episode is all about what we're doing, why we are doing it, and where we are coming from so you can understand why we are headed this direction with our business instead of trying to just focus on squeezing as much profit as possible out of our niche e-commerce stores.

Alejandro is an entrepreneur from Peru. He is a Drop Ship Lifestyle coach who helps students who live outside of the USA to start a drop ship online store based in the USA. His story is full of ups and downs. He quit his corporate job to pursue being an entrepreneur by importing and exporting Garmin GPS devices. He wound up in over $10,000 in debt because of some mistakes in that business that left him bankrupt and doubting his choices. He moved to a different city, Cusco, where Machu Picchu is located, and began working with a partner in the tourism industry. He was organizing pub crawls and made some money showing tourists a good time. Then, out of nowhere, a contact he made through some contracting work led to an interview with a corporation based in Iowa. He was hired as the director of international business development. The company flew him to places like Dubai and Abu Dhabi putting him up at the most expensive hotels, all expenses paid. In Alejandro’s words “life changes fast.” His advice, just go with it and be ready. Drop Ship Lifestyle came into his life after a health problem led him to pursue more rewarding paths in life. He launched his drop shipping store in January 2015 and he got his first sale a couple months later. Through his experience with the trial and error of setting up a business in the USA even if you’re not a citizen of the country yet. Here are his tips for setting up a remote business yourself: Get a social security number or tax payer ID number (ITIN) Set up a remote LLC with WyomingAgents.com (Wyoming is the lowest cost to set up LLC and requires the least amount of taxes to be paid) (~$200) Get an EIN (employer ID number) *must be set up by phone or fax. Get resellers permit from state of Wyoming (~$60) Set up business checking account Set up business credit card (international cards aren’t accepted by suppliers) The day we released this podcast, Alejandro turned 31. Happy birthday, Alejandro! If you would like to get in touch with him, you can sign up for Drop Ship Lifestyle and set up a coaching call anytime.
