What Tech is Needed to Coach Clients While Hiking the World?
You may be wondering how you will be able to carry your tech and get everything in your backpack at a reasonable weight so you can operate this type of business effectively while not slowing down your travels. It’s easier than you think. You can eliminate anything that requires very heavy technology. Outsource initial web development. You can get a very competent, kind and highly qualified virtual assistant for about $6-7/hour in the Philippines. They will be grateful for the opportunity and will work very hard. And, because the cost of living in the Philippines is so low compared to the United States, as an example, that gives them quite a nice lifestyle.
You may decide to operate your entire coaching business from your smartphone. Some people will decide to get a very compact and lightweight computer such as the MacBook Air. Others may get a tablet such as an iPad. You’re a virtual assistant who can upload and edit your blog posts. You can run your coaching sessions from zoom on your phone or a messaging app or traditional phone. There are numerous apps for coaching you can use to facilitate individual, small group, or large group coaching. You only need your phone to manage a Facebook group. Any of your writing can be done in spoken word and your assistant can use a service for a few dollars from Fiverr, as an example, to transcribe your blog post and edit it and post it. If there are any errors or omissions, simply point them out to your assistant, and have him or her make the necessary changes.
Living the Dream of Backpacking the World
Traveling around the world living out of a backpack is a dream for many people. It is a way of exploring the world on a budget while experiencing new cultures and meeting new people. Over the years, there have been several individuals who have embarked on such journeys, inspiring others to do the same.
One such individual is Rolf Potts, who traveled around the world with only a small backpack for six years. His journey took him to over 60 countries, and he spent less than $20,000 in total. Potts documented his experiences in his book, “Vagabonding,” which has become a source of inspiration for many travelers.
Another famous backpacker is Chris McCandless, who famously journeyed into the Alaskan wilderness with only a backpack and minimal supplies. His story is chronicled in Jon Krakauer’s book, “Into the Wild.”
When it comes to hiking, there are several places around the world where backpackers can explore. One such place is the Appalachian Trail, which runs for over 2,000 miles through the eastern United States. Another popular hiking destination is the Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage route in Spain that attracts thousands of backpackers every year.
Here’s an example of how you can help your clients discover hiking and backpacking at a distance and fund your travels.
In terms of the cost of living, backpacking can be a very affordable way of traveling. Accommodation options such as hostels and camping can be very cheap, and backpackers often cook their meals rather than eat out at restaurants. However, the cost of living can vary greatly depending on the destination. For example, traveling through Southeast Asia can be very affordable, while backpacking through Europe can be more expensive.
Here’s more information about the health benefits of hiking and backpacking. Imagine integrating this type of coaching and training into your online program for your clients as you’re actually doing the same and seeing the world simultaneously.
Many backpackers will camp outdoors on most days. Others stay in hostels. Some may take a break and go on a very affordable cruise such as a transatlantic repositioning cruise, which can be 80% off traditional pricing to give their body a break and to fuel up on great food. Many backpackers will spend two nights per week, for example, and a very affordable hotel that offers a hearty breakfast. This gives them time to rest, recover and get a lot of work done so then they don’t have to work for the next five days. Everything is given to their virtual assistant to facilitate during their next days of travel.
Regardless of the destination or cost, backpacking offers a unique and rewarding travel experience. It allows travelers to fully immerse themselves in new cultures, meets new people, and explore some of the most beautiful and remote parts of the world. With the right mindset and preparation, backpacking can be an unforgettable adventure.
