We're too busy. We're all plugged in. And even for us nomads, it can be easy to lose sight of the greater goals.

 
In this episode, we're trying to recapture our spirituality. With all this talk of building startups and finances and practical elements, let's remember why we're doing all this in the first place.

 
How do we tap into that deeper fulfillment? Is it getting harder as the world gets more connected? And what does it mean to be a spiritual nomad, anyway?

When business commitments start increasing, can you still live a nomadic lifestyle? And if yes, how does it differ from a freelance or purely nomadic lifestyle?

In this episode, we continue the conversation from episode 078... But instead of focusing on "what it's like to build a startup while nomading," Eli explains "what it's like to nomad -- while building a startup."

By the end, we surprise ourselves with some candidly open reflections on the nomadic pursuit and what it means for a fulfilling life. What else would you expect from a BN pod??

Our conversation mentions startup ecosystems and StartupBlink's work in tracking them. Check out the map & ranking system here to see what we're talking about!

Let's look beyond the basic psychology of habits to explore the nomadic idea that "Discipline is Freedom."

In this episode, Eli covers the value of routines in an uncertain lifestyle, offers recommendations for building them effectively, and shares what he's learned about himself through his ups and downs of habit-forming.

To sustain his nomadic lifestyle, Eli chose the path of building startups. But what inspired him to go this route? Was it worth ditching the freelance game? And what would he do differently if he had the chance?

In this episode, we discuss the lifestyle behind the lifestyle. How the type of work you choose will define the mindset you acquire and the sacrifices you make.
