#59 The Clever Nomad - Andrew Hallam
Welcome to episode #59My guest Andrew Hallam Andrew is a personal finance journalist, speaker, and author of three books, Millionaire Teacher, Millionaire Expat, and Balance. His books are about how to invest and spend for happiness, health, and wealth. Andrew’s love of travel started when, at age 12, his parents encouraged him to take an educational trip to the Mediterranean. His early respect for money started not much later, probably because his parents expected him to pay for his college education.One day, sitting on a friend’s patio after finishing a bike race, he realized that travelling, swimming in tropical waters, riding his bike, meeting fascinating people, and working as little as possible was his life’s dream.At 19, he met a mechanic who happened to be a millionaire and taught him that one doesn’t need a high-paying job to build wealth. The concept is to make money work hard for you instead of working hard for your money. So before his 20th birthday, he started to invest. By the time Andrew reached his late 30s, he had enough money to retire. He kept working, though, as he knew it gave him more options. Twenty years later, he and his wife Pele are now living a nomadic life for the last eight years. He still works hard, but not as often. His love for travelling, swimming in tropical waters, riding his bike, and meeting fascinating people is now his reality.This is his travel story. How it all started and where he has been.  Let’s enjoy his story.

Ann has developed the ability to sense inside her body and release physical tension stored in her connective tissue using the focus of her mind solely.Ann wants us all to know that we have this incredible power; it means going further with practices that you are probably already doing. The key is practice. Ann believes changing what is on our inside will change what we see on the outside so that we can change our personal and collective worlds.I am fascinated by Ann's story, and I admire her immensely. Ann has a YouTube channel; see the link below. She is here to share her method in great detail. To me, the most critical aspect is her character. Her desire for growth, perseverance, and discipline. Her desire to change her life and even bone structure. We all want to change or improve, but very few are willing to put the effort toward greatness. Ann never doubted. She wanted a happier life, and she did the work. Let's enjoy her story.  Website: book: A Pathway to Insight @ann.hince

Your space and how you spend your time mirror what's going on inside you.I am delighted to have a fellow organizer on the show. Organized people are fantastic. Tonia is here to share how it started for her and how she helps others with her five-step process based on her experience with her clients. Her process encompasses intentions and values — everything from personal growth and sustainability to organizing and creating systems.

Soon after starting this, she realized that while an organized space can be transformative, it was only the first step in making space grow and evolve. So Tonia applied her background in education, the arts, psychology, and some trial and error to create an integrated process for individuals to meet their intentions, goals, and values. Let's enjoy her story.Check out her website for your own Clarity Call!To connect with Tonia: LinkedIn@timeandspacesolutions
