Episode 118. "I think we often overlook what's in our backyards. Like, it's ridiculous how many places that you can see if even if you just drive a few hours out and really appreciate what you have." ~Debbie Arcangeles
Conversation with Debbie Arcangeles is a lot like spinning the giant prize wheel at a carnival: every topic is a winner. And since I’m terrible at choosing, Debbie obliged me with a spin ‘round multiple subjects - travel! entrepreneurship! remote work! work/life balance! podcasting! - in just under thirty minutes.
As the creative force behind The Offbeat Life, a business that includes her podcast, an entrepreneurial skills platform, and brand partnership opportunities, Debbie’s built a fully-remote lifestyle doing what she loves: traveling and speaking with people. While there’s a lot to love about her digital nomad perks, big lessons come with the territory. Some are cultural; like how her Filipino features are often mistaken for the predominant local ethnicity. Others are professional; like the amount of time she’s dedicated to growing her business.
After years as an informal source for answers to entrepreneurial and digital nomad questions, Debbie created a menu of masterclasses and professional podcast services. She’s equal parts teacher and cheerleader of the location independent lifestyle.
Debbie has tips for making the most of local life, and plenty of international tales to tell.
Hear some of Debbie’s favorite strategies for monetizing her podcast on the crossover episode she recorded for Podcast Envy episode 76.
