Episode #1 - The Beginning of the Journey

Welcome to the Out of Office Podcast where I your host, Anna Grymes, bring together kick ass remote workers and location-independent entreprenuers building real online businesses that allow them to custom design their lives to work whenever and wherever they want.

On today's first episode, I'm sharing my own journey of building my location-independent business, ditching my corporate job, and traveling across the world. No desk. No boss. No BS. Just life on my own terms. And it only took six months to completely reinvent my unconventional life.

Through inspiration from people like Dan and Ian on The Tropical MBA Podcast and Terry Crews from The Tim Ferriss Show, I paved my own path on the road less traveled by evaluating the potential of regrets and changing my mindset around what it means to climb the corporate ladder.

I talk about what you'll come to expect from the guests I'll bring on to the podcast, and how together we hope to inspire you to live the life you always dreamed of.

 

Episode #2 - SEO from a Boat in Fiji with Belinda Irvine

Belinda Irvine, an entrepreneur and SEO expert, uprooted herself from her home and corporate job in Australia to live in new parts of the world as required by her husband's job. She quickly sought out a creative outlet or passion project and found that in an online forum and blog about dogs. 

While driving traffic to her blog and online forum, Belinda was able to apply her skills and knowledge from previous jobs with her own research and passion for driving web traffic to help local clients with their SEO needs. A few accounts here and there turned into a global client base and a team of experts while Belinda runs her empire from her boat in Fiji. 

Some of the tools crucial to her success that she mentioned on the show included the Active.Collab project management tool, Slack communication, and the book Confessions of a Misfit Entrepreneur.

One day she found herself stricken with grief due to the ultimate trifecta of her relationship, career and family life falling apart. Her partner left her. She had to watch a murderer in a double-homicide case walk free. And her younger brother suddenly passed away. The only thing she knew to do was to get away from it all by going on a sabbatical to take that round-the-world solo trip she had on her bucket list.

Through her travels she found new friends, fresh inspiration, her ability to feel again, an idea for a new career, and most importantly... herself and her purpose. Today you can find Sam running global retreats for those people also looking for a fresh start and a new purpose in life through her start-up, Live Free Tribe
