  • the gold long term is, if we are all wealthy is that we're all working for ourselves and the people who are working for us.

  • They're essentially robots, and today that's software robots in data centers executing code.

  • Tomorrow it could be delivery bots, flying bots, mechanical bots that are carrying things around.

  • This goes back to this idea of the best relationships or peer relationships.

  • If there's someone above you in that someone to learn from, if you're not learning from them and improving, then there shouldn't be anybody above you.

  • If there's somebody below you, it's because you're teaching them and then they believe them.

  • If you're not teaching them and enabling them, then get a robot underneath.

  • You don't need a human being below you.

  • This is utopian, and it's long ways off.

  • But in the not too distant future, anybody who wants to work for themselves will be able to work for themselves.

  • You may have to make other sacrifices.

  • You have to take on more risk.

  • You take on more accountability, you may have less steady income, but more and more, I think the younger generation is realizing that if they're gonna work, they're gonna work for themselves.

  • So this was no Vaal Rob account.

  • And he often talks about his belief that the more advanced technology gets, the more freedom we will have.

  • And what he means by this is that we usually use technology to replace boring and repetitive jobs.

  • So the Maur technology evolves, the less boring and repetitive jobs there will be, and I definitely agree with him on this.

  • This idea might scare people because it sounds like unemployment is waiting.

  • But there's a big a variety of jobs today than there, worse back before the industrial age.

  • So it seems that when jobs get replaced by machines, at least with loss of jobs in the short term.

  • But in the long term, it seems to lead to an increase in jobs overall.

  • And those new jobs are more interesting, more creative jobs today there are more people working for themselves than there's ever bean, and this again seems to be correlated with an improvement in technology.

  • More advanced, we get, the more people start choosing the route of working for themselves, and the more advanced we get, the less risk it's also associated with going that route of working for yourself.

  • You can start writing code for an hour per night as a freelancer while still working a regular job.

  • During the day, you can start recording your dinner conversations with your friends after work and create a $1,000,000 podcast.

  • You can even film your work day and create a massive youth of gentle, even though it may not be quite as easy as I make it seem.

  • All of those things have Ciro risk involved, and that means that pretty much anyone could at least attempt to doing those things.

  • And that's a pretty big thing, because just a few decades ago, even attempting something like that would have been very difficult to d'oh.

  • And it's still like a massively difficult task to create a $1,000,000 podcast or app.

  • But the barrier to entry is fairly low, and if you're watching this video, then you could most likely do both.

  • So becoming a digital nomad today is not necessarily easy, but it's a lot less difficult than most people think.

  • How do you do it, though?

  • So even though you can make money through the Internet doing pretty much anything, you can't just start a random business and expect that everything's gonna work out great because anyone can make money online.

  • So here are my tips for how to go about it.

  • The book 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing talks about the importance of being first, and this is why, If you want to truly become free, you need to be first in your category.

  • My first plan back in the day was to become an online personal trainer, but I had no plan for how to be first.

  • And I could, of course, not be the first online personal trainer because that had already been done.

  • So the book talks about the fact that if you cannot be first in your category than try to come up with a new category that you can be first in for me, that would have meant that I would have needed to figure out some sort of new subcategory of online personal trainer that had not yet been explored by anyone else and that people would also be interested in.

  • And that's the difficulty.

  • And that's where you need a snowball right account would say, some specific knowledge.

  • You need specific knowledge within your field in order to be able to detect where there's an opportunity and this is something that I did by accident for my YouTube channel.

  • And that's kind of what got it started.

  • During the summer of 2018 I search for a day in the life of a software engineer, videos on YouTube.

  • At the time there was like two or three videos out, and they all had, like, 500 K plus views.

  • So I thought I should make a video like that because there seems to be an unexploited demand for it.

  • But I didn't make the video.

  • And then, like six months later, I saw that there was like six new videos out, and they all had, like, 300 K plus views.

  • So then I decided to create one of my own, and that is what initially sparked the growth of my channel.

  • So this is what you want to try to do, and it can be done with dumb luck, just accidentally finding an unexploited niche with high demand.

  • But it usually takes some form of specific knowledge.

  • Maybe you're a welder, and you see that there's a new, more efficient technique emerging.

  • So you start teaching that, and that's how you get started.

  • I don't know anything about welding, but that could be a way to do it.

  • And this is how I currently work with my YouTube channel.

  • I tried to come up with new categories of videos that people have not seen but would be interested in.

  • The good thing about this tragedy is that if you're able to do with, then you become the first within a new category, and that means that you're more likely to be remembered and also associate ID with that category and the book 22 immutable Walls.

  • They bring up a really good example here, and that's see rocks because they used to be unanimous with the word copy, you'd say, like I just do a C rocks copy.

  • Even if you didn't use a C Iraq's copier, you would say See Iraq's copy and that's what you want.

  • You want to find a new category that you could be first in with high traffic and high demand.

  • How do you find this, though I'm not gonna lie that ISS the difficult part and my best advice here would again be something stolen from novel Robert Hunt and that ISS find something that you are uniquely good at or just good at, and then make yourself unique within that area.

  • If you really want to get paid in this world, you want to be number one in whatever it is that you're doing.

  • And it could be niche.

  • That's the point.

  • It can literally be You're getting paid for just being you.

  • You know, at this point, some of the more successful people in the world are that way.

  • Oprah against paid for being Oprah.

  • Joe Rogan gets paid for being Joe Rogan, and they're being authentic to themselves.

  • So what this tweet is trying to say simultaneously is that you want to be number one, but you gonna keep changing what you do until you're number one.

  • You can't just pick something arbitrary.

  • You can't say I'm going to be the fastest runner in the world.

  • And now you gotta beat the same bolt.

  • That's too hard of a problem.

  • But what you can do is you can keep changing what your objective is until it arrives to your specific knowledge.

  • Your skill sets your position, your capabilities, your location, your interests and then converges to making your number one.

  • So when you're searching for what to do, you actually have two different folks I that you have to keep in mind at all points.

  • And one of those is I want to be the best at what I do.

  • And the second is what I do is flexible so that I am the best at it.

  • So that's my advice.

  • Or that's my recipe for achieving the goal of becoming a digital nomad.

  • And again, this is something that it's not necessarily easy, but I think it's a lot less difficult than most people think.

  • But yeah, that's it for this one.

  • I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope we'll see in the next one and related to this.

  • This video, sponsored by EXT.

  • X Team, is a team of remote developers, and when you join extreme, they will help you get set up for remote work.

  • As a software developer, you define an hourly rate, and then based on that and your technical skills, X team will then find your jobs that would fit you, which is crazy good, since the most difficult part of getting into freelancing, finding high quality work and through exchange, you get the chance to work with big brands like riot games.

  • Fox Broadcasting Coined based, etcetera Ex Same also has a number of Packer houses in different, beautiful locations around the world, where you can go and stay for free, meaning all you pay for flights, food and whatever activities you want to get up to.

  • No rent and these X outposts, as they are called, will be full of other remote developers who you can hang out with and learn from.

  • So if you're looking to start remote work than X team is definitely something worth checking out.

  • So go to extreme dot com slash cow.

  • There's also a link in the description.

  • And then finally, once you've picked the right thing to work on and the right people to work with, then you work as hard as you can.

  • This is where the mythology gets a little crazy.

  • People will work 80 120 hour weeks allowed.

  • Oh, that's just status signaling.

  • It's showing off.

  • Nobody really works 8220 hours a week, sustained at high output with mental clarity, your brain breaks down.

  • He just won't have good ideas.

  • So really, the way people tend to work most effectively, especially knowledge.

  • Work is they sprint as hard as they can while they're working on something and they're inspired in their passionate and then they rest to take long breaks.

  • It's more like a lion hunting and much less like a marathon runner running.

  • So you sprint.

  • Then you rest, you reassess and then you try again in which you end up doing is you end up building a marathon off sprints.

  • Maybe just made the point to me on the side of inspiration is perishable, which is a very good point.

  • When you have your inspiration, do it right then and there.

  • This happens to me a lot with my tweet storms.

  • I've actually come up with a whole bunch of additional tweets.

  • Don't besides the ones that are already out there, but sometimes it just hesitate, or I just pause and they just dies.

  • And what I've learned is if I'm inspired to write a block post or to publish a tweetstorm, I should probably do it right away.

  • Otherwise, it's not gonna get out there.

  • I won't come back to it.

the gold long term is, if we are all wealthy is that we're all working for ourselves and the people who are working for us.
