*There is no expiry date on the promo code above.

In this video, we share tips and advice about working online while you travel, or working online from home.

We’ve worked online for ourselves, and for a startup, for over 3 years and we love the digital nomad lifestyle. It was intimidating (at first) to leave the safety and supportive office environment to work from home, and on the road. We didn’t know if we needed special equipment and gear, if we had to get a super high speed internet connection or a brand new laptop, or where we’d have meetings and find quiet places to make phone calls.

We’ve learned a lot along the way and so we’re sharing tips and advice that we’ve learned from our experiences to help you figure out how to try this lifestyle. We definitely suggest starting with what you have in terms of gear and equipment, and upgrading once you see that your online work is profitable. We waited a year before upgrading to a newer laptop, and even longer for a newer camera.

Our other tips relate to finding WiFi on the road, co-working spaces, learning skills to DIY and keep overhead costs low (see the Skillshare link above!), being flexible, and where to find the best digital nomad destinations using the NomadList website.

Thanks for watching!

Surprise Ideas: Function after form: from old auto repair to live/work space …….

Published on May 14, 2017

Two decades ago, architects David Yocum and Brian Bell were new to Atlanta and looking for an abandoned building that they could “reimagine”. They found their opportunity in a crumbling former auto repair shop. Yocum bought it for $40,000 and spent the next three years working nights and weekends to make it into a home for himself and his wife.

Most of the roof had already collapsed so Yocum removed what remained over the front half of the building and created an open courtyard. Since the remaining building had no windows, to add light, he installed a wall of glass doors for the front and skylights. To insure that the back of the building- at the time the bedroom and living room- wouldn’t be too dark, he didn’t build any solid walls inside the structure. Instead the rooms in the middle of the space- the kitchen, mechanical room and bathroom- have “slivers” for walls to filter light from the front to the back.

“If we had solid walls and no skylights it would be quite oppressive,” explains Yocum. “So if you imagine the idea of a skylight where you’re cutting a hole to the sky, the same attitude was taken with these walls. Instead of having solid walls we would have just a series of small slivers.”

Yocum and Bell began their architecture practice (BLDGS) in the front of the building, but eventually, both the firm and Yocum’s wife wanted more space, so the couple moved out and today the entire space is an office.

The exterior of the building still retains the abandoned look, mostly due to the sealed-shut windows, and the architects like keeping it anonymous. “It’s in the heart of the city, but it’s also a bit of an oasis”.

Inside, now that the courtyard is exposed to the elements, the walls change with the years: paints falls off, the metal windows develop more and more patina. For Yocum and Bell, this aging is a beautiful thing.

“Beauty can be found in a lot of places,” explains Yocum who thinks the reimagining of buildings can be done more often. “It’s no different from a city that’s been around for 600 years, is that you find ways to reuse structures and you discover what you can and you turn it into something new. It’s a very natural approach to things. I think what’s interesting is that it can lead to unexpected situations. ”

As promised Award Winning Laureate Wang Ping returns to The Colony to prepare her Traditional Chinese Dumpling. Kinship of Rivers continues to inspire unity and bring respect to our most precious commodity, water. Mni Wiconi, Water is Life and Wang Ping made the pilgrimage to the Oceti Sakowin Camp, along the Cannon Ball River. It became a sacred journey, a story you must hear.

Ms. Ping will share her tales of life and the people who inspired them, along the river. It’s not just about dumplings, it’s about life, cultures, diversity as well as commonalities that make us uniquely human. Kinship is a bond that needs few worlds to describe for it is more a feeling of deeper understanding, trust and sanctuary, a novelty in today’s world. She’ll be at the Amato Lumber Yard Complex, 224 E. Godding, Trinidad, Colorado, 81082 on May 21st at 3:00 pm.

What Chemtrails Are Doing To Your Brain – Neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock Reveals Shocking Facts……….

Published on Apr 7, 2013

Linderman Unleashed Radio Show March 28th 2013 Broadcast. Curt Linderman speaks with Dr. Blaylock about the devastating health effects of the chemtrails and geoengineering programs which have been implemented in secret without public consent.

Chemtrails, Nanoaluminum and Neurodegenerative and Neurodevelopmental Effects
By Russell L. Blaylock, M.D.

The Internet is littered with stories of “chemtrails” and geoengineering to combat “global warming” and until recently I took these stories with a grain of salt. One of the main reasons for my skepticism was that I rarely saw what they were describing in the skies. But over the past several years I have notice a great number of these trails and I have to admit they are not like the contrails I grew up seeing in the skies. They are extensive, quite broad, are laid in a definite pattern and slowly evolve into artificial clouds. Of particular concern is that there are now so many ­dozens every day are littering the skies.

My major concern is that there is evidence that they are spraying tons of nanosized aluminum compounds. It has been demonstrated in the scientific and medical literature that nanosized particles are infinitely more reactive and induce intense inflammation in a number of tissues. Of special concern is the effect of these nanoparticles on the brain and spinal cord, as a growing list of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s dementia, Parkinson’s disease and Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) are strongly related to exposure to environmental aluminum.
Nanoparticles of aluminum are not only infinitely more inflammatory, they also easily penetrate the brain by a number of routes, including the blood and olfactory nerves (the smell nerves in the nose). Studies have shown that these particles pass along the olfactory neural tracts, which connect directly to the area of the brain that is not only most effected by Alzheimer’s disease, but also the earliest affected in the course of the disease. It also has the highest level of brain aluminum in Alzheimer’s cases.

The intranasal route of exposure makes spraying of massive amounts of nanoaluminum into the skies especially hazardous, as it will be inhaled by people of all ages, including babies and small children for many hours. We know that older people have the greatest reaction to this airborne aluminum. Because of the nanosizing of the aluminum particles being used, home filtering system will not remove the aluminum, thus prolonging exposure, even indoors.
In addition to inhaling nanoaluminum, such spraying will saturate the ground, water and vegetation with high levels of aluminum. Normally, aluminum is poorly absorbed from the GI tract, but nanoaluminum is absorbed in much higher amounts. This absorbed aluminum has been shown to be distributed to a number of organs and tissues including the brain and spinal cord. Inhaling this environmentally suspended nanoaluminum will also produce tremendous inflammatory reaction within the lungs, which will pose a significant hazard to children and adults with asthma and pulmonary diseases.

I pray that the pilots who are spraying this dangerous substance fully understand that they are destroying the life and health of their families as well. This is also true of our political officials. Once the soil, plants and water sources are heavily contaminated there will be no way to reverse the damage that has been done.
Steps need to be taken now to prevent an impending health disaster of enormous proportions if this project is not stopped immediately. Otherwise we will see an explosive increase in neurodegenerative diseases occurring in adults and the elderly in unprecedented rates as well as neurodevelopmental disorders in our children. We are already seeing a dramatic increase in these neurological disorders and it is occurring in younger people than ever before.
