How to travel the world and work for yourself with Matt Kohn [TPP#39]

Welcome to Productive People, my blog and podcast series dedicated to learning from productive people who are smashing their goals and getting stuff done.

In this episode of the Productivity Podcast, I talk to Matt Kohn from all about how he travels and freelances while working remotely. I really enjoyed recording this episode as it was a great opportunity for me to learn more about how to plan your travels and what mistakes to avoid. My wife, Hayley, and I are planning a trip for next year and Matt delivered a tonne of useful advice in this episode which I'll be sure to remember during our trip.
