JF Brou ~ Current Series: 100 Interviews with 100 Location-Independent Entrepreneurs that have over $1,000,000 in Annual Revenue

Some of my favorite podcast guests are young entrepreneurs that started off with an idea, a dream, and nothing to lose, then getting to work and starting up their business.  I really think this a special time in entrepreneurs lives when they are incredibly optimistic about what is possible and they tune out the background noise to build something that will change their life forever.

Today’s guest is JF Brou and he did just that. JF just turned 30 and has already started six businesses one of them hitting over $1,000,000 in its third year. JF is the founder of Interstude, Exchange Your Life, Rep Your Flag Festival, Poutine Canada, TravelReadyStore.com, and Oui Are Entrepreneurs. All of these businesses are about creating experiences for the 19 - 24 age range of millennials to travel and create lifelong memories.  

JF and I chat about how he built his businesses up, going through the hard times being a young bootstrapper, redesigning his business models to be location independent and the mentality shift needed to reach 7-figures.

“I think it’s to the core of human beings growth. By giving the best experiences possible, you can totally change people's lives.”  JF Brou

Andres Zuleta ~ Founder of Boutique Japan

Current Series: 100 Interviews with 100 Location-Independent Entrepreneurs that have over $1,000,000 in Annual Revenue

Today listeners, we have a friend and another 7-figure location independent entrepreneur joining us from Austin, Texas. His name is Andres Zuleta and he is the founder of Boutique Japan, a high-end luxury travel service that creates amazing trips and experiences for travelers in Japan.  

Today we dig into Andres’ experience starting two businesses that failed and then returning to the 9-5 life. Andres shares about the moment when he realized that he could no longer work for someone else, and made the leap to try his hand at entrepreneurship once again. He also shares the simple tactics he used, and continues to use, to grow Boutique Japan into the incredible business that it is today.

“You shouldn’t be looking for these innovative business ideas necessarily. A lot of times, the best business idea is actually transferring your own skills that you have already validated in the real world, and turning that into a business.”  Andres Zuleta
