Paul Kortman and his family of 6 are digital nomads and living a life on the road RVing through Mexico all while running a digital marketing agency. Paul actually has two ripcord moments and we go deep into both of them.
“How can we lower our cost of living dramatically while improving our quality of living?”
The first is when he quit “the best job he ever had” to start his own marketing agency. The second is when him and his wife with 4 kids sold everything in Grand Rapids Michigan to go location independent and travel the world while still running the agency.
Things didn’t initially go as planned. Within 3 months of them being digital nomads, Paul lost 3 clients that equated to 90% of his revenue and things quickly imploded.
How they planned to leave Grand Rapids for good and travel the world as digital nomads.
When things quickly fell apart just 3 months into their journey.
Returning to Grand Rapids to re-group and re-build their digital marketing agency.
Buying a 300 square foot RV for the family to continue their nomadic lives.
Living and working in Mexico.
The digital tools that he relies on to run his business and thrive as a location independent entrepreneur.
The ups and downs of living a life on the road with a family of 6.
“Yes, I could make more money but I would have to work more and what’s the fun in that?”
This is a story of a resilient family that refused to give up on their dreams of living and working from anywhere and a motto that they’ve adopted when their traveling lifestyle hits a roadblock is, “if we are going to laugh about it later, why not laugh about it now.”
Tools that Paul depends on to run his business from anywhere:
Slack, Trello, Google Hangouts, Zapier, Skype, Google Voice, T-mobile
