Jörg Kleis wants everyone to rethink the stereotypical narrative of Africa. His mission is to create brain circulation by creating opportunities for skilled people across nations and he co-founded AfricaWorks to help African graduates from German universities to find jobs in Africa, as well as within Germany.

He has experienced many perspective shifts in his work and travel to Africa over the last 10 years. In this week’s episode, Jörg shares his early origins as a Law student and how he transitioned into a backpacking, baby-holding, trespassing, lone wanderer with a passion for changing how Africa and Africans are seen by the world.

When you imagine a 70s alt-rock band, what comes to mind? Sold out gigs, screaming fans, and decadence, maybe? Those were the dreams of our guest today, Aleksandr "Sasha" Zilkov, when he was growing up in Russia. He quit university and decided to grab life by the horns. But, things didn’t quite turn out how he expected.

This week we explore the exciting life of a musician and successful YouTuber. Sasha has played in wedding bands, arranged music for pop stars and has grown to over 100,000 subscribers on YouTube. We’ll visit the music scene in Moscow and talk about how he built his unconventional life from the ground up.

This week we’re doing something a little bit different. Instead of hearing from someone already living an unconventional lifestyle, I coach Andrea Elibero, a member of the Living Unconventionally Community. Andrea shares her dreams of a location-independent lifestyle with us. This episode is for all the women who want to take the first step towards a location-independent lifestyle.

Andrea currently does clinical trials research and lives in Miami, Florida. She dreams of being a location-independent coach who’s able to spend unlimited time in the beautiful small towns of Italy. In this episode, I coach Andrea and as we explore her background, aspirations, and beliefs we uncover a path towards making her dreams a reality.

Today I am continuing my conversation with Jessica and Will Sueiro, founders of World Towning. On Monday’s episode we heard about their transition out of their suburban life and into travelling. This time we are talking about their business that helps others get out into the world as well.

The pair clear up some misconceptions about working and travelling the world, announce new plans for the coming year, and explain why doing it yourself is often the best way to do it.

This week’s guests are Jessica and Will Sueiro and they’re the founders of WorldTowning. The husband and wife duo have spent the past three years travelling the world with their two kids, after discovering the typical suburban life wasn’t for them. Since then, they have stayed in Costa Rica, Ecuador, France, and are now preparing to take an RV across Europe!

They’ve documented all their adventures on their YouTube channel, proving that the digital nomad lifestyle can be done with children. It hasn’t been easy, and they believe that being honest about the difficulties will help more people realize their dream lifestyle.

In this episode, Jessica and Will take us through their travel journey, how challenging it can be to get started, the importance of community, and how a dance troupe can be your gateway into a different culture.
