Ahead of his annual Digital Nomad Summit, I had a chance to chat with Johnny FD. A digital nomad who In 2008 quit his corporate gig in California to move to Thailand and follow his passions and work as a Scuba Diver around the world. It was in Thailand that he spent a few years training professionally as a Muay Thai Fighter and fighting professionally.
In 2013 he started my first online business through publishing a book on Amazon Kindle, then replaced his 9-5 income by starting a dropshipping store which he later sold and start investing in other passive income vehicles. Johnny also started a blog to document and share his journey as a location independent entrepreneur or what he now labels as a digital nomad with my friends and family.
