Exhausted from Bangkok

By Torsten


October 17, 2016

I’m having a weird phase. Feeling very much down and uncomfortable. And obviously I am after 5 days of meetings, networking and socializing on 2 big conferences (Sustainable Brands & DCBKK). I’m writing those lines from a Coffee Shop in Central Plaza, Bangkok. It took me a few hours to get here. Before I went to the bus station to get a VIP ticket to Chiang Mai for tonight 21:00. The bus station is a 30 minute walk across a nice park but the humidity is really exhausting and made me feel disgusting.

I’m used to travel really low-cost honestly, I’m tired of it. I’m tired that I can’t afford certain things. Though I actually could, I still have no income and I don’t want to spent money I don’t have yet.

It’s weird. I spent the last 5 days in the Hilton and Conrad hotels but stayed in tiny box with 3 other guys. A low-cost hostel near the Conrad. The lower bed even had bed bugs and the guys have been the weirdest people I’ve met since years. Seriously scary. All of them 40+ years old with the weirdest stories. I tired to avoid them as much as I could. The sleep I got those days was of very low quality to say it in simple words.

There is a lot of exciting stuff coming my way and I made really great connections and friends in the last days. I keep pushing myself. The light is coming closer. This just made me think about how good I actually have it already. Yes, it’s still a transitional time and I’ve to do many things that are uncomfortable but I’m healthy and have incredible friends and I travel around the world. Which brings me to my next point. Traveling. I’m really looking forward to create a base somewhere. It’s been too much movement in the last few month especially considering that I’m not in a traveling mood. My goal is to create a business that can sustain myself and my operations in Kenya as well as other projects like my friend Bery in Uganda and even my mom.

My friend Philippe said something interesting yesterday when introducing me to someone. He said, Toto is too good to make money. I’ve to stop to think about others first. I seems that I still highly undervalue myself and what I can offer to the world. It’s time to add a price tag that reflects my value.

We are in the final hours before I release the pricing for Nomad Convoy. In fact, that’s something I’ve to think about just now. This weekend confirmed my original thoughts and I’m ready to set a higher price and have less people at the end. Though I still think we will sell out.

The SaaS startup is something that really excites me from the long-term and sustainability point of view. The potential is massive and the recurring model will be my bread and butter. I can see this business growing to 7 figures in the next 12 month. It’s only that we have to educate our customers, as it’s a product that does not yet exist.

Heads up Toto. It will all work out. Enjoy the ride. Enjoy the moment. The world will catch up with you. Just be patient.

That’s it for now.

Talk soon,
