In this episode, I interview freelance email copywriter Francis Nayan about his incredible life story of having gone from heroin addict to traveling the world and living the life of his dreams.
From the age of seven, Francis always knew he wanted to travel and see the world. But when he fell into a heroin addiction that led to an overdose, he felt as if all his dreams would never be more than that—dreams.
But he managed to bounce back from rock bottom and reinvent himself as a world-traveling digital nomad. Today he travels the world, making a living as a freelance email copywriter.
From heroin addict to living the life he always wanted.
I think we can all take some lessons from his story, including the importance of being open to change, setting firm boundaries with clients, and forgiving ourselves over past mistakes.
