Clinton Young: Welcome to the show today. I’m so excited to have you here! Miss to Elizabeth Yes. Elizabeth is your last name, or is that just what you go by.
Teal Elisabeth: Yeah, it’s just what I go by my middle name is too hard to pronounce.
Clinton Young: So you’re coming at us today from Portland, Oregon, but we’re going to talk all about your journey, And I want to kick it off here by just why don’t you share a little bit about. What you’re doing right now in terms of your business, because a lot of people who follow me want to find out how they can travel overseas or even in the US and it’s good to hear a little bit about what your business is. So let’s start with that.
Teal Elisabeth: Yeah, absolutely. Well first off I’m just so honored to be here. Thank you for having me on your show. And so my name is teal is Beth, and I am a love and relationship coach. I specifically support the ambitious driven woman in learning what it takes to relax and to love both with themselves and with a partner, and this is something I’ve been coaching women for over five years. And for the last two years, I’ve taken my company overseas and been running this completely as a digital nomadic entrepreneur from over 35 countries literally taste-testing my way through the world as I run this empire. So it’s been pretty fantastic.
Clinton Young: I love that little soundbite, “taste testing my way through the world.” That’s like hashtag inspiring.Good for you.
Well, we’re going to talk a lot more about that, and how you’re able to do that. How are you able to make the jump and the choice to do it. And then a little bit more about how best, and best, most effectively to run your business while you’re traveling. So we’ll dig into that a little bit. But first, tell me what you are the one or two of the top things that you’re passionate about.
Teal Elisabeth: Um, okay, well, sea turtles. I have a deep mission in my heart through my business to give back to the earth, and to preserve the sea turtle population. And that’s just like a total off the wall passion. I also am extremely passionate about supporting women and holding space for women to transform and self development in general, something I’ve been studying personal development work for for 15 years and it just I’m obsessed with everything that has to do with growing our own selves to be become the highest version of ourselves continuously and there’s nothing like traveling to really get you into that that space of personal development and growth.
And now I’m getting to hold space to do it as well. It just truly brings my heart alive. I would also say I am really passionate about water polo. I used to play all throughout high school and college and nothing gets me more fired up than just like pummeling some women in the pool.
Clinton Young: So you build women up, and then you beat them down!
Have you had a chance to see any sea turtles on your journeys?
Teal Elisabeth: Oh my gosh, yes, and it was like a dream come true. I remember as Christmas gifts for each other, my fiance and I, we were scuba diving off the Gili islands in Bali and on Christmas Day we got to spend time in a sea turtle haven with about 10 sea turtles all swimming around me. I was literally in heaven.
Clinton Young: Oh, that is so cool. So you’re able to mix your business with your passions and I would imagine you have a teeny, tiny passion for travel.
Teal Elisabeth: Oh yeah, I didn’t even mention that one. Yeah.
Clinton Young: Very, very cool. Awesome. So again, we’ll dive a little bit more into that as we go.
I want to ask you now, like what right now you’re in Portland, but you’ve been in 35 countries in the last two and a half or three years or so.
Clinton Young: Let’s take it back. Let’s take it all the way back to your story. You shared a little bit about it already, but what were you doing, I believe you said you were coaching already, when you decided to make the jump. So let’s talk about what you were thinking, what was the drive. What was the thing that made you say, “I want that, I want to travel. I want to go.”
And then tell us, how did you make that choice, because it’s a big, courageous choice and I would imagine being in personal development really helped you along the way. Tell us a little bit about that.
Teal Elisabeth: Yeah, absolutely. So it’s actually been building on itself for a really long time. I grew up in a really small town in Ohai, California, so a very sheltered life. I’d always wanted to travel, but I’d never had much experience doing it. And over time, I did a study abroad trip, I did a few trips by myself. I did a trip with my girlfriend for six months going backpacking throughout Asia, but all of those just felt a little bit safe. I knew it was always coming back. They almost felt like vacations right or extended trips abroad.
But this was a very, very different kind of trip. This was something that I had always had this dream in my heart of traveling the world with the love of my life and really getting to share that experience with someone and build that love connection while traveling. So on the day that I met my fiance. We’ve been together for seven years, but on the day I met him, it was really strange. He and I were doing some sort of icebreaker activity and he asked me if I’ve ever traveled, and I started sharing all my travel experiences. He said, “ we’re going to do that one day.”
It was like in that moment, this seed had been planted and I just met him, but it was just this weird, freaky thing that we both already knew we wanted to travel together one day.
Fast forward five years into it, we just decided, a year from now we need to make this happen. Right? We’re in our mid 20s, it’s time to get this going. So we literally just set a date a year ahead. We had both just moved into an apartment together, and so we said, “okay, when the lease apartments up, that’s when we’ll go march 15.” So even though I’d been traveling before, I was really excited and nervous about completely just giving up the life that I own up until now. I think the biggest thing was just starting to put into place how I am going to actually support myself while traveling, knowing that this is not a vacation. Knowing that this is something that we’re going to try and continue to do for as long as possible. So that really kick started me jumping into the entrepreneurial world, starting my own business and really making this something that could last
Clinton Young: When you made that choice again, how did you know for sure? Because sometimes when we have these big hairy, audacious goals. Perhaps this wasn’t a big hairy, audacious goal for you it’s just something that you knew was going to happen. There’s still a little bit of fear and uncertainty. So I’m curious. How did you know that it was the right time… or did you?
Teal Elisabeth: No we didn’t know it was the right time. I mean, there’s so many things that go into it. Right? There’s the budgeting and the planning for it, and then there’s just taking the leap of faith.
Leading up to it, I just started my business on the side. I was working in San Francisco at Uber on the people development team at Uber in San Francisco, and I was trying to put something together and hoping that by this time and this date came along that I would have some fully functioning business. But by the time march 15 came along, I wasn’t making any money with my business. It was still just like gaining momentum. So, it definitely didn’t feel good. But we did it anyway, and we made it work on the way, as we went
Clinton Young: Wow. So you’re telling me that you had this job with a stable company. A Great job; you’re making a big impact and making good money and you’re starting your coaching business, but it was still in the beginning stages and you weren’t yet making consistent money and you just set a date you said?
Clinton Young: The 15th Of March? You just said, “No matter what, we’re going.” You just had faith that it was going to work out, and I worked up
Teal Elisabeth: It was the biggest leap of faith in my life. I remember being terrified, absolutely terrified. Spencer, being so beautiful as a partner, just reassured me that we are going to figure this out. He’s going to be by my side, and he believes in me.
I literally talked about, you know, weaning myself off the corporate teat. That’s what it felt like. It felt like my entire life, I’d been suckling on this just to have consistent income. It was a nice, steady paycheck and then all of a sudden it’s gone. Now I have to figure out a way to feed myself. I remember about three weeks into the trip we’re in Coimbra in Portugal and I have one of these ocean moments like, I’m gonna die.
It was a complete ego attack and ego death. I’m literally hiding under the sheets and I’m freaking out thinking I’m never going to have money again because I don’t have any more income. It was at that point that I started to just get really scrappy. And I started thinking, if I needed money tomorrow, what would I do while being in a foreign country, traveling, doing all this stuff.
I reached out to a girlfriend who ran her own business. I said, “Hey, I used to be a project manager at this big company. I’ve got a lot of skill sets to offer. Do you have anything that you would need help with?” She had a tiny little project, and she paid me like 200 bucks, but it was enough for me to shift out of that scarcity mindset of needing and depending on the paycheck and to really realize I can make money for myself.
From that moment, I was able to really hustle my little touch to continue to make money for myself. Now I make more than I even made in my corporate job.
Clinton Young: Nice. Congratulations!. That’s so awesome. So be scrappy, be resourceful, and tap into your network. There are opportunities.
I was interviewing another young lady this morning, who is actually living in Portugal right now, about the same topic. She told me something very similar to what you’re saying. She said, “You know, we all have so many skills that we don’t even know somebody’s willing to pay us for in a contractor type role. So, really start to look at that – what are your skills and how can you start to monetize them. I love that you did that with your project management background.
Teal Elisabeth: Well now, the world is slowly starting to catch up with this idea of how maybe digital, remote work is actually more beneficial in a lot of ways. So there’re so many resources and websites looking for freelancers. It’s making it so much easier now to be able to start getting those little side hustle gigs to supplement the time so that you can build more of that runway as you get your thing off the ground. Absolutely.
Clinton Young: Yeah 1,000% and even some folks out there who have jobs. There are opportunities to work remotely with your job, and a lot of us are doing it right now. A lot of companies, like you said, are shifting. So there’s always a way if you want to do this. There’s always, always, always a way. This is so cool.
So when you left, did you and your fiance Spencer have an amount that you wanted to have saved before you went? Was he working as well?
I’m just trying to really understand the courage that it took. Was he rolling in the dough and was just like, “Honey, don’t worry about it. I got this until you start making money.”
Not to get too personal but I know people are wondering, maybe her fiance had all the money and you didn’t have to worry. I’m just curious, what was the situation?
Teal Elisabeth: I wish he just had all the money, and could say, “Don’t worry about it, babe.”
We were both hustling the whole way.
Luckily, like I said, giving ourselves that year of preparation ahead of time allowed us to start socking away money and putting money aside. We both wanted to have enough living expenses to last for a three month runway. So we budgeted what three months would be. From that place, we were able to work it out so by the time that money ran out, we had it replenished. The three months were enough breathing room. It would have been nice to have more breathing room, but that was enough to at least give us a chance. Worst case scenario we come home after three months, and that’s it. That was a good enough kickoff point.
Clinton Young: That is such a great way to look at it, Teal, because what I’ve found is when we start getting in motion, we start to create momentum, we start to create confidence, we start to create more courage, and we create more connections and more momentum. Then we magnetized things to us. So I love that.
Now when you say that you had three months, was that for airfare, for places that you stayed, for food, for utilities, for everything you wanted to have for three months?
Teal Elisabeth: Yeah, we actually I worked it out based on the per diem that I got through my corporate job. If my job were to sponsor me for three months per diem rates, how much would that be? So in the United States, I think it’s about 20 bucks a meal, 100 bucks a night for a hotel, and that kind of thing. That really gave us a good budget to work from. Then we could really be more crafty when we were actually out there, traveling and finding things cheaper to extend the runway.
But the whole idea is that your plane is taking off and you’re building the runway as you’re taking off. As long as you just keep laying the bricks a few more ahead of time, you’re going to be okay, but it very much felt like free falling for a little while, like jumping out of the plane with no parachute and trusting that the parachute is going to come up after you and catch you.
Clinton Young: That’s very similar to being an entrepreneur, isn’t it. You jump out, and you build the airplane on the way down. That’s where the magic happens. That’s the space in which the magic actually happens – that faith and confidence that things will work out.
You have no idea how it’s going to workout, but if you just stay in motion and stay positive, magic and miracles happen.
Teal Elisabeth: You know what, Clinton, I’ve still been living my life that way ever since. For the last two and a half years I’ve been still living my life that way. Throwing in a pandemic on top of it, has just added so much uncertainty, but I’ve been able to really roll with the punches, and roll with the roller coaster so much more easily and actually enjoy the uncertainty and the opportunities that come with just allowing things to unfold as they need to. I feel so much more divinely connected and guided by what needs to happen versus trying to logically plan out my life, and it is so liberating. And so freeing
Clinton Young: That is so great. So for those folks out there who are looking at this as an opportunity, we’re going to start talking about some fun stories of different countries that you’ve been to, and I can’t wait to hear more.
I’ve been reading your blog like I told you earlier, and it’s amazing. We’re definitely going to tell people about your blog. Why don’t you tell them the website for that right now while we’re talking because it’s amazing.
Teal Elisabeth: Sure, yeah. It’s called “Vivite Somnia”, which in Latin means live your dreams.
Clinton Young: That will definitely be in the show notes, but you can spell.
Clinton Young: It if you like right now.
Teal Elisabeth: It catalogs our first year. We’ve been traveling for two and a half years, but it catalogs the first year of our travels. I blended in a lot of my own reflections of the deeper mindset shifts that I was going through along the journey, along with just the everyday foodie scene, because Spence’s super into food. All the good food, all the good spots to hit up, all the good pictures, all that kind of stuff. I feel like I’m writing my own love story. Our last post is with us getting engaged in the fjords of New Zealand. So it’s a pretty magical blog.
Clinton Young: It really is. So definitely check out her blog for travel. Obviously you want to check out all of her sites, and we’ll talk about that at the end, but her blog is amazing. I literally shared one of your blog posts on my Facebook page. It’s that good.
So what could one expect, I know it’s different in all countries, but what can one expect for a typical monthly expense. If you were to roll it all in, what is a month. If I were to have a month that I wanted to save up, what would you guess it would be with airfare? Again, I know there’s no crystal ball so don’t take Teal’s word 100%. Do your own due diligence. I want to just know in your experience, what it has been.
Teal Elisabeth: You know, it’s really beautiful, because the way we started our travel trips, we allocated funds. He had saved up money, I’d save that money, and we kind of traded back and forth with funds, which also helped with the whole runway idea. We would do it in $10,000 chunk increments. So I contributed $10,000 to just last us for as long as it could. And then he would do the same. And we were able to fit about three months into that $10,000 with everything included for two people. So once I was able to contribute my 10,000, then in my eyes, I would have three more months to prepare to get that next 10K ready to contribute to our travels again.
Doing it in that way with a partner made it easier than both people just paying for every little expense together, we were able to come together, combine our funds, and just pay out of one account.
Also, prepare where you want to go. That was 10K for three months, living in Europe – eating our way through Europe. If you’re in Asia, you can stretch that out a lot longer than we were able to.
Clinton Young: So that’s for developed nations – 10K for three months. This is really, really good news.
As I’ve shared with you, my wife and I travel a lot, but we’ve never just pulled the cord and said, “We’re going.”
We’re doing it this coming year. So I love what you’re sharing and I know people who are going to listen to this and see this are going to love it as well, because it’s really attainable. Especially if you have two people. It’s the same exact number that my guest this morning we had as well. She said 3000 for two people. If it’s one person, it’s maybe 2000. It might be a little more, and of course it depends on the country. I love your strategy of $10,000 with a person who’s responsible for that in the partnership. Because the other person then has two months to come up with their 10,000 since you’re rotating back and forth. So that’s brilliant. I really, really love that strategy, I’m going to share that with my wife.
Teal Elisabeth: Yeah, it helps tremendously. It helped me to breathe a lot easier in those other months so that I didn’t get into that scarcity mindset when I’m trying to build my business. Absolutely.
Clinton Young: Which is so vital to any new entrepreneur out there, you cannot be in a scarcity mindset. In fact, I always say, and you might say something different, because you’re the coach on this specifically. I coach speakers, but I don’t recommend my speakers to leave their job and go out to try to be a full time speaker like that. I tell them to get that money, as much as you can, as fast as you can. But work on getting more flexibility. Flexibility is the currency that’s way more important, and you need to have those funds coming in. You’re not going to make money, generally right out of the gate as an entrepreneur. You might, but it’s not going to be as consistent. So I always say keep that job as long as you can, but try to get more flexibility.
Teal Elisabeth: I love it. But yes, it is completely attainable and so doable. That’s the big shattering of the ceiling that I wanted to bring to this discussion. When I first told people we’re going to quit our jobs and travel the world indefinitely. I mean, people look at you, just with almost like this disbelief. Like you’ve just told them something that is not even fathomable, you know, and it’s really something you just kind of have to stand in and own. All those fears and insecurities are going to come through, and you have to be really careful to protect yourself from that. There are those mindsets that can be very detrimental to our own success when we are leaning into something that seems a little scary and out of the box. But we really can create so much more than our conditioned limited mind allows us to believe that we can. So yes – been there, done that, got the t-shirt and the 10 pounds. It’s so doable.
Clinton Young: I 100% agree with you.
So what do you like most about living and working Internationally? In a moment, we’re going to talk about how you’re currently planning some routes, after two and a half, three years on the road. But what do you love the most about just the experience, and did that change over time.
Teal Elisabeth: Yes, absolutely. I think the two biggest things that I loved the most were obviously experiencing all the cultures was just Incredible. You know, it’s something that I didn’t even think I took for granted until being in one place and then being back in the United States. Just realizing what a worldly perspective I’m able to bring to the everyday moments, everyday decisions, and conversations because of getting to really truly see, experience, and connect with people around the world. I think with that, it’s really helped shape my own mindset. I mean, when you are constantly on the go, always moving around, trying to figure things out on the fly. It gives you such a sense of self confidence and such trust and a knowing about yourself that you can’t get as easily if you stay in one space. So that has been really, really incredible. To be able to just uproot and then drop myself somewhere else, and be able to bloom wherever I’m planted now gives me the confidence to know that no matter what endeavor, I’m going to be able to bloom where I’m planted So that has probably been the biggest eye opener for me.
Clinton Young: Tell me how that’s helped you in your business, working with clients – that mindset that you’re able to develop.
Teal Elisabeth: I think the biggest thing is really having this inner-knowing that what I have to give is of value. Not just because of my external experiences, but because of the deep shifts and self-work that I’ve done in the process to get me to this point. So, if I’m able to get through that point in my own journey, I can help other women to do the same. Especially as a new entrepreneur, there’s so much inferiority, so much imposter syndrome, and so much insecurity coming in. What about all my competitors and all that they’re doing? It just has really helped me to just keep the blinders on, and just remind myself of the value and the power and the presence that I bring to the table.
Clinton Young: So one of the things you liked the most, really, is the personal development and the expansion that you’ve been able to experience along the way. It sounds like you’ve really been able to incorporate that in helping all the women that you help out there, and that’s that’s really cool. So what did you start in? I want to hear where you started, and then just give me some highlights. Kind of popcorn through some of the countries that you really love the most and why.
Teal Elisabeth: Oh, this is so fun to talk about. So,. we bought a one way ticket to Norway in March, because it was the cheapest airfare we could get. We got our tickets each for $180, no joke, on a brand new Dreamliner like 777. It was the most luxurious plane I have ever been on and the cheapest flight I’ve ever been on and we want to know.
Clinton Young: Where were you flying from?
Teal Elisabeth: From Los Angeles.
Clinton Young: So from LA to Norway for $180 on a pimped out, amazing plane.Yeah. Can you send me that link?!
Teal Elisabeth: There’s one of these things also, when you are traveling and you’re more flexible around your dates you can afford to pick the times and the dates that give you the best flight flexibility. That’s really a big travel hack for sure.
From there, we spent some time in Norway going through the fjords, we went to Copenhagen for a few weeks. Then we ended up renting a car in Portugal. They have this amazing deal for American tourists where you can rent a car for six months with insurance, navigation system, all the works. You can rent it in one place and drop it off in another country six months later. And I think that cost – it was so cheap – I think it was maybe $2,000 for six months to rent this car. They said, with insurance and everything, we could bring it with the doors ripped off and they wouldn’t charge us anything, so that was incredible to be able to have that leased car, because from there we were literally able to drive all over Europe for the next three months. We literally just zig-zagged up and down Western Europe. We started in Portugal, going down to Spain, up to France, Belgium, Germany. All the way up and down through Italy and Austria. It was such an incredible, incredible moment.
Also, through this time, we were mostly going through Airbnb, but we also were doing a lot of homestays and work-away experiences. So this was a really great way to kind of offset the cost of the everyday expenses by doing work-away experiences and getting some cultural value as well.
Clinton Young: Tell us more about what those are and how to access those.
Teal Elisabeth: Work-away is a big one. It’s on a website called workaway.org, and basically hosts that need labor and kinds of projects, will invite people to come into their home. They’ll cover your room and board for as long as you want. You get to stay and just give five hours a day for five days a week in exchange for your time. So this was a really awesome way to be able to stay for around a month at a time in a place, which would cut down on all of our food and living expenses. We would be able to get really cool, on the ground, hands-on experience. Then we would have our off-time to work on building our businesses.
We stayed in a couple one, we did one on a farm in New Zealand, a sheep farm, but the craziest one that we did was in Scotland. We literally worked with Lord and Lady Ross of Nether Hall and we were basically modern-day servants it felt like, but it was an incredible experience. Lord Ross of nether call actually worked with the Queen of England, so it felt like I was stepping into Downton Abbey. We were in Scotland, living on 300 acres of farmland.
Clinton Young: Wow! Who has that experience?! Really, seriously? Who in their life has that amazing experience? Oh my goodness, I am getting so excited. I’m gonna have to leave this weekend! So working wayaway.org, and then where I found you, actually, one of your awesome blog posts was actually on another one called World Packers or something like that.
Teal Elisabeth: Yeah, that’s a good
Clinton Young: Did you use them as well in a similar capacity?
Teal Elisabeth: Not so much. I don’t know too much about them. I think they more just provide travel articles and blogs, but that’s been a great one. Then there’s Trusted House Sitters and House Carers is also one that we’ve done a lot with. We house sat for a couple in Puerto Rico, and in Ontario, Canada, and a few other places. That was really nice because after a while traveling, we really missed having a dog. So this way, we were able to have a free stay and dogs to take care of! That also really kept down on the travel expenses.
So there’s all these little life hacks that you can do, like I said, to extend out that runway and keep the funds alive, and still have kickass experiences along the way!
Clinton Young: So cool, I’m so inspired! So what was your favorite country on your European tour? Let’s go by continent.
Teal Elisabeth: Yeah, I was gonna say that’s just the beginning.
Clinton Young: I thought your blog was the whole thing that – was only the first year, you said, Oh, my goodness. What was your favorite country, city, and why?
Teal Elisabeth: Oh, I think, Venice, Italy. I can’t describe it, you know, it’s just, it’s got such a unique majesty to it, having these canals running throughout the city. It was also a moment I really had a massive breakthrough in my own growth and development about stepping into really owning identity of being a love and relationship coach. It was just a very profound moment for me, being there in such a romanticized city. I mean, you can just pop into a little pub and grab a bottle of wine and sit you know along the canals at sunset and just listen to the people speaking, it’s just it’s truly magical there.
Clinton Young: Needs to be in your origin story if it’s not already how you became a love and relationship coach in the city of love, Venice, Italy. It’s so perfect. Okay.
Then where did you go from Europe? It sounds like you got around by car, mostly, used a lot of homestays, some Airbnbs. Where did you go from there? Did you do any planes? Or do you recommend not doing any plane trips, if you can help.
Teal Elisabeth: No, yeah, we use planes a lot, you know, you can really find good deals, like I said, on random budget airlines. From Scotland, Ireland, and England we flew to Japan, and we started our whole Asia world trip, which is just – talk about CULTURE SHOCK, But Japan was absolutely fantastic. From Japan, we went down to Thailand and then went down to Bali. We spent three months living in Bali, and then continued on to Australia and New Zealand, and got engaged in New Zealand. Then we flew back to the United States for a quick trip to celebrate. Then continued on to Canada and did a whole trip across Canada. Then we spent some time in New York, went down to Puerto Rico, and went back to Bali until COVID hit just this year. Now we’re back in the United States.
Clinton Young: So you do like Bali, it sounds. You went back it sounds like.
Clinton Young: Why did you go back to Bali?
Teal Elisabeth: The main draw there was actually so many things. I mean, the people are out of this world – so deeply loving and compassionate and the food is amazing. It’s actually the number two digital nomad spot in the world. So there are tons of entrepreneurs that are all drawn to Bali just for all the different things that it provides. Between having a really good cost of living, having amazing, epic sunsets and beaches and jungles to explore, and having that kind of work environment where you’re surrounded by other entrepreneurs, makes it a really fun place to be. You get on your little moped, you zoom around down the streets in the jungles and you pop over to a cafe with your other entrepreneurial friends and talk about business strategy. It feels like you’re living in a dream. It’s so different from the everyday corporate hustle of the United States.
Clinton Young: My wife and I have been there several times. One of our mentors is over there, and we’ve loved it as well – the mopeds, all around. You’re so right. I’ve never lived there though, which seems really cool. So that’s the number two city, I’m wondering if you know what the number one city is? Do you have an idea?
Teal Elisabeth: It’s changed. It was Bangkok, Thailand and one point, and I believe now it’s actually Budapest. We were on our way to Budapest this year before COVID hit, but we’ll get back there.
Clinton Young: So I do want to talk about COVID in a moment, I want to come back to that, But do you have any travel site hacks? I know you talked about Workaway which was really awesome and House Sitters. And there’s Pet Sitters as well. Any other travel site hacks for airfare or anything that you’ve found, or do you just go directly to the airlines.?
Teal Elisabeth: Skyscanner is a great website for finding really cheap airfare. That’s definitely been a great one. Okay. On Me I trusted house sitters and house cares are the two websites for how sitting gigs, which are fantastic. And you can get house sitting gigs all over the world. People are always wanting to go on vacation and they need someone to watch their pets. You can find literally gorgeous homes like mansions. There are beautiful opportunities all around the world.
Clinton Young: Nice. That’s awesome. Did you find that getting those was relatively easy or do you do need to have a robust kind of portfolio or bio on there that shows that you’ve done it before.
Teal Elisabeth: No, we, we started it with no referrals no reviews know anything’s just put up a profile of who we are and put up some pictures and The most important thing is kind of getting on a Skype call or a zoom call with them ahead of time and feeling the mountain. I think pretty much people can get a good read on your character from doing one of those calls. So that’s really helped a lot.
The last thing of course is Airbnb. I mean, Airbnb with We’re in such a unique window of time in this world right now where we have the luxuries of fast internet in pretty much most developing countries like Bali and Along with things like Uber, so we can get around. If you don’t have a car and Airbnb where you can have home experiences without having to get a home. It’s just the gig economy is opening up such a portal for this kind of lifestyle to be so much easier. And I think that’s when we were telling people, we’re going to do something like this, people were just like, I don’t even understand how you would do this, but This kind of world is opened up so it makes it really, really much more easy so Airbnb. I mean, has been our bread and butter, they really should add rewards points because so much
Clinton Young: What is an average nightly rate that you should look for to stay inside of that three grand budget per month. If you were to do Airbnb or and also what percentage of the month. Are you in an Airbnb versus a homestay
Teal Elisabeth: Yeah, I would say receive about 90% of our time and Airbnb. And you can find really great Airbnb for $50 a night around all over Europe. It’s even cheaper in Asia, you know, it can be as cheap as 20 to $30 a night. If you want something nice. If you’re willing to do more hostels that’s even cheaper. Right. But the nice thing about Airbnb is you can really have a home. It feels like a home that you move into Or like we were when we were In Italy on the Amalfi Coast. We booked some time with a local man, you know, and he was able to show us his whole life, and we got to be immersed in part of his family and just rent a room from his family and that in and of itself was such a beautiful experience.
Clinton Young: How did you find that gentleman.
Teal Elisabeth: on Airbnb.
Clinton Young: Okay, got it. You can rent it. Gotcha.
Teal Elisabeth: Mm hmm.
Clinton Young: Awesome. This I’m like, So geek out on this right now. I hope you’re having fun I’m having
Teal Elisabeth: Oh yeah, I just, I feel embarrassed. I feel like I’m talking about myself. That’s, that’s what it’s all for right
Clinton Young: Okay, so then You talked about did you, did we finish all the countries, you kind of went through a bunch there.
Teal Elisabeth: Yeah I skim through them really fast. But yeah, basically.
Clinton Young: The other favorites, then beyond the ones you already shared that you loved
Teal Elisabeth: New Zealand is a magical place. We stayed for three weeks doing work away on a sheep farm shearing sheep and, you know, cleaning horse stalls and that sort of stuff, but Then we rented a motorhome for 10 days and just went motorhome and throughout both islands. And the most beautiful part about New Zealand is that there’s just so many diverse environments in such a small container of a country of an island. So you can have fjords like you have in Norway, you can have sheep farms like you have in Scotland, you can have incredible rain for us, like you have in South America. You can have desert desert lands and Aboriginal lands, like you do in Australia, all in this compact little island that is relatively self sustainable and the people there are just so welcoming and friendly. So, It was an incredible country.
Clinton Young: So you primarily did the New Zealand area it sounds like. Did you do Australia as well?
Teal Elisabeth: Yeah, for a little while.
Clinton Young: Wow, what an amazing, amazing journey. So we just talked about all the fun stuff. Now, I know there’s some dirt in there. I know there’s some crazy stories, but we can start off real easy. Then I do want to actually go into the challenges that one should expect
Share with me the funniest thing that happened, or the most off the wall experience, whether it be an AirBNB host or something crazy that happened. Something you weren’t expecting or anything off the wall that wasn’t in the agenda.
Teal Elisabeth: So one of the risks of house sitting and Work Away is that you are putting yourself into an experience with a family and committing to living there for however long you want to live there. If you want to get the most bang for your buck, you’re going to go for at least a couple weeks or months.
We found a place in Ontario, Canada, right next to Niagara Falls. Same kind of thing, just basic helping out around the house, helping upkeep all their acres of land and their farm. They picked us up on the first day and on our drive back to the farm, they tell us that they are devout Scientologists. Now I have nothing against Scientology, I didn’t know anything about it at the time, but it was extremely challenging to be around these people. They were very much wanting to encourage and bring us into their world. Their house had a basement on the ground floor, and then the main floor. They had us in the basement. You walk down the basement floor and it is just floor to ceiling bookshelves with every Scientology volume that’s ever been written by L. Ron Hubbard. It was kind of overwhelming and really intense. Every day we would come out there and do our work, and it was just very, very challenging to be around, and it triggered me a ton. I had a really hard time just interacting with them, and I don’t usually have troubles talking to people, but I felt very shut down and very claustrophobic, and we were there for a month. So that was a huge opportunity for growth.
Then we had some encounters where they had decided to take a vacation while we were there, and we had to be responsible for the whole place. It was just one thing after another that was just falling apart and breaking, and we just looked like complete idiots like we couldn’t take care of anything. And they were just truly trying to show us the way and help us solve all of our problems through Scientology.
Clinton Young: Wow again. What a unique experience as well, the good, the bad, and the ugly. You and Spencer will be talking about that when you’re 75 sitting on the porch. That time with those Scientologists, again nothing against Scientology, but you obviously got some funny ones.
I’m noticing that at these home stays, you’re not necessarily doing things that are related to your coaching skills or your business skills. Rather, everyday type things. Is that pretty typical of these Work Away stays? Yard work and things like that. Is that what to expect?
Teal Elisabeth: Yeah, you sign up based on what kind of skill sets you want to provide, but I mean the general things are mowing the lawn or weed whacking miles of property or planting plants. We worked for a bed and breakfast, so a lot of turndown service and cleaning up after the rooms every day. It’s definitely grunt work for sure. Or it’s mucking out horse stalls or helping shear sheep or tidying up big vats of trash in the areas. It can be anything. Crazy amounts of weeding and very hands-on labor, but you know it was a really nice balance when you can get to an agreement of the actual hours of time that you’re working for them versus working for yourself.
It’s a really nice balance, and I found myself loving it. I’d go out there in the mornings and pick apples from the orchard and feed the pigs and go collect blackberries and that kind of thing. Then I’d come back and work with my clients, and It was a really nice blend of culture and experience, and business and development and having that freedom and that luxury of just catching my breath financially.
Clinton Young: Got it. Now, what would you say was the key to growing your business, even while working in some cases, five hours a day in this work always? What was the key for you to be able to create momentum in your business for you and your fiance as well. What would you say the keys were?
Teal Elisabeth: Consistency is huge and just showing up. I mean, I think we both have huge drive and work ethics. It’s really tempting to put that laptop away and go out for a baguette and a coffee and get to it tomorrow, but we both have such a drive and a commitment to success. That was really big – prioritizing work every day and showing up. For me it was really leveraging my networks early on with the people in my community. I had other coaching friends that were able to interview me on their platforms and start getting my name out there, and that really helped a lot. Then a lot of it was just trial and error and continuing to test things out and see what works. I continued to refine my own messaging and figure out my truth and my why and let that drive me forward.
Clinton Young: So would you say that’s a pretty good way for someone to get known and potentially get clients? By getting on other people’s platforms while you’re traveling?
Teal Elisabeth: Absolutely.
Clinton Young: That’s great. That’s a beautiful thing about coaching, as well, you can do it on your computer anywhere, on your phone, or on WhatsApp.
Teal Elisabeth: Yes, it’s really great.
Clinton Young: That’s awesome. What did you guys do for fun on the road? Obviously renting the RV in New Zealand. Any other big things that really stand out that were super fun?
Teal Elisabeth: Well, we’re both crazy foodies. So, being on the road is the best time to eat your way through everything. When we’d have a good successful celebration or a win in our business, we would take ourselves out and go to a Michelin star restaurant and somewhere world class. We’d just experience the best of the best of the food in the area. To me, that is worth more than any other kind of experience. To be able to really enjoy good food and good environments with my partner. Occasionally through Airbnb and other experiences you can sign up for cooking classes for instance. We did some cooking classes in Thailand and a lot of hiking, a lot of getting out into nature and really experiencing the land, experiencing what each culture has to offer, but I’d say eating. Eating was pretty much our favorite.
Clinton Young: I love it. I have some food sensitivities to things like Gluten and Dairy and one of the questions I have for myself is this suspicion that food might be different in different parts of the world. We might be okay in a different country where it’s processed differently. Now I could be totally wrong, but that’s a suspicion. I don’t know if you had any experience with food sensitivities or not. It’s a very, very micro-niche topic and I don’t want to spend a lot of time on it, but that is a curiosity I have.
Teal Elisabeth: I didn’t have any specific sensitivities, but I definitely agree that the quality of food is much less processed in other countries. I don’t think you’re going to have as much of an issue with it.
Teal Elisabeth: I was just remembering another really fun thing that we did, not with Spencer, but when I traveled with my girlfriend before this big trip. One thing that we would love to do in a new place is we would take the day apart with our cameras, and we would go out on a total photo scavenger hunt. Each of us would task ourselves with finding the 10 best photos that we could take. Then we’d come back together a few hours later and exchange photos and see some of the beautiful perspectives that we were able to capture as we just wandered through the cities or the towns. That was a really, really fun experience to be able to really get some quality one-on-one time. When you’re around your partner all the time, it’s good to get a break, and to get to just open up your eyes through the lens of the camera and see what this place really has to offer and the unique angles and perspectives. That was a really fun thing that I highly suggest.
Clinton Young: That’s great. I love taking photos, too. That sounds like a lot of fun to me.
What were some of the challenges? What would you say are some of the biggest challenges to traveling abroad and continually making money on the move?
Teal Elisabeth: The biggest one is uncertainty. Uncertainty uncertainty, uncertainty. You are consistently creating life as you go, and it’s not even possible to know where you’re going to be in three months from now, let alone a month from now, let alone a week from now. Unless you’re the uber planner – meaning to plan everything to a tee. Most things are not going to go according to plan. It’s better to not even try and plan it out that long. I really had to get comfortable. Since I had to get comfortable with just not knowing, it took a lot of practice. It can be really stressful when you are running a business trying to plan around client calls. I’m having a coaching call at 4pm, but I don’t even know where I’m going to be at 4pm. I don’t even know if there’s going to be internet for me at 4pm next Tuesday. So that on the ground stuff is really, really tough. When you can really get comfortable with it, It can help make everything feel so much more in-flow, and you can start to plan your business around your life instead of your life around your business.
Teal Elisabeth: When you get uncomfortable, you can get comfortable with living in the uncertainty of life. You start to plan your business around your life instead of your life around your business.
Clinton Young: That is so juicy to any entrepreneur out there. any watcher out there that’s thinking about starting their own business. Yeah, I love that.
Teal Elisabeth: This was the most probably one of the most stressful moments in the entire trip. We were in Rome, and I was trying to do a big old webinar launch for my upcoming course. I was so excited, and I’d put two months of really intense hard work into it. I sacrificed going out to the clubs or whatever else. I was ready to launch it next Tuesday at four o’clock. We show up in Rome, the day before the webinar, and Old Rome has shitty internet in just the whole city. It’s just known for having bad internet. I didn’t know that, but apparently it did. I was coming up to the moment of being on this call. I just decided to just test it out and hope for the best.
I was in the middle of my incredible webinar. I’ve got all these women commenting on how my story is so amazing, and the internet just goes out. I’m getting all these emails later and just hearing, “Wait, what happened?” I sas killing myself inside. I was just devastated that I’ve just lost all this momentum.
So, then I had planned three more of them in a sequence. We got to the next place two days later, and I told myself that is not happening again. I had to figure out a way to make sure I had success with this. I searched all around the city trying to find who had the best internet, because my Airbnb didn’t have good internet. We found the most ritzy Hotel in the area. Of course, they only let you use the internet if you’re a guest there, so I literally snuck in to the business center of the hotel. It’s horrible. I feel like a horrible person, but that was how dedicated I was to be successful. I snuck into the business center on the second floor, keeping an eye out. I was watching the doors, making sure nobody came in to bother me while I’m on this. I was able to perform this webinar in the business center, just hijacking their hotel internet. I had to get the hotel password from the hotel housekeeper on the fifth floor. We were running all up and down the elevator. Oh my gosh. It was such a disaster, but I pulled it off and I was able to make my very first course sale.
Clinton Young: You earned that one!
Teal Elisabeth: It certainty can be really, really scary for an entrepreneur, if they’re not ready to have no consistent little office and the setup, the hookups, and the electricity.
Clinton Young: That’s really great. The parallels are so interesting as I continue to interview more and more people. The bits of truth and the principles of how to do this are so interesting and real. The challenges you’re going to have and the uncertainty are a continuing theme that I keep hearing.
So tell me, what did you learn from that? How has it been working on the muscle of being okay with uncertainty? You mentioned getting comfortable with not knowing, how has that helped you in your life?
Teal Elisabeth: Oh my god, it’s been the biggest relief of my life. For instance, this year – especially with Kobe. It’s just catapulted it to a whole nother level of uncertainty, but it’s allowed me to deepen into a connection with the divine like I’ve never experienced. There is such incredible relief that can come through when you just give up to it. I literally gave up. I surrender. “I surrender, universe, I can’t do this anymore. My brain cannot figure this out, so please help me!” There have been moments where I’ve been on the floor, crying, saying, “Please help me. I don’t know how to do this.” Then all that tension that you’ve been holding onto so tightly just disappears, and you can just relax into this piece and this calm and this truly sweet surrender. Then, when I hear that little voice that comes through, that tells you exactly what you need to hear and guides you in exactly the right ways and the right people reach out to you. Next thing you know, you’re on cloud nine again on a whole different level. A whole new space of expansion comes, and I have gone through this contraction and expansion so many times in the last few years, that I now just expect it. I’m excited by it, and I just say, “Here we go again, I’m contracting, I cannot control anything. I don’t know where my life’s going. I know that it’s leading me to the next step into my most expanded self. So let’s do it.”
Clinton Young: What a great quality for a coach to have, seriously.
Teal Elisabeth: That is the best thing that you could ever have as a coach – to be able to help other people in their lives that are going through this.
Clinton Young: Definitely going through uncertainty, especially in our day and age, is great. I love that you said that. I was kind of expecting you were going to say that, and I wanted to give you the chance to say it.
Teal Elisabeth: Thank you.
Clinton Young: It’s really important, and I just love that. I’m really excited to continue my connection with that source, whatever you call that out there. I call it universe, spirit, whatever you call it. Whatever you want, but deepening that connection and deepening my own trust with my own intuition, and with my own faith that everything’s going to be okay. This experience is like graduate school – the experience of becoming an entrepreneur. If you keep your mind right. I’m curious because it can probably go south, really easily. What were the practices that you did to keep you in that positive feeling of the unknown and the faith versus the fear.
Teal Elisabeth: That’s such a great question. It’s so many different things, but it’s all about a big mindset at the end of the day. The mindset of knowing that I am co-creating the life that I am stepping into. Albert Einstein even says this, he says, “Imagination is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” One of the most incredible quotes of all time. This was way back in the day, and it’s just such proof that we are really choosing to co-create our destiny. So when I can remind myself of that and tap into that knowing that there are desires within me that have been planted. They are guiding me to my highest expression of self. If I can just hold on to that desire without freaking out about the how. I can trust and come back to that place of knowing that I am always divinely supported. It is such a relaxed space to be able to be in. It’s not easy for sure. My mind goes into crazy overdrive, but then meditating on that and really making that a consistent practice every morning, I have at least 15 – 20 minutes to quiet my mind. To tap into the desire and trust and knowing. Always being divinely supported has been so pivotal, especially in the last year.
I have this incredible journal that my coach has given me called The Speed Dial, The Universe Journal. It’s all about honing in on gratitude and writing out the vision of what’s coming into your experience. What I tapped into is just trusting and reminding myself, “Oh yeah, I get to tell myself what’s coming.” I don’t even know how it’s going to happen, but I already know that I’m going to meet the perfect person who’s going to find the right way for me to do this. It’s all going to work itself out. Just let go and let it all unfold.
Clinton Young: So that practice you talked about in the morning, is that gratitude and journaling that you were referencing, or is it meditation?
Teal Elisabeth: It’s meditation first to really connect into that power and that presence within myself. Then it’s about journaling into that vision and deepening into the knowing
Clinton Young: Nice. I call these the black sheep habits. There’s eight of them that you probably know and do all of them. Then, a lot of people just aren’t willing to do, or they’re not familiar with, or they’re on the fringe of what’s socially acceptable. Things like visualization and contemplative walks in nature by yourself. I love that you’re walking around the city by yourself. There’s such power in traveling alone. I spent time in Southeast Asia in grad school by myself and in Brazil. It’s such a unique experience and allows you to really reflect. It allows you to have those moments of contemplation. So, I love what you’re sharing.
Before we wrap up, I have a couple quick questions to round us out. We talked about some of the challenges. What are some where if you were to do it all over again, you’d do differently. If you were starting today, what would you do?
Teal Elisabeth: I mean, I don’t know how I can top what we just experienced. I pinch myself still to think that this all happened. I think the only thing I would have added, not even changed, but added was to prioritize a little bit more time connecting with the culture and the people. Traveling with a partner as you were mentioning, is very different from traveling by yourself, or even with a girlfriend. I found that traveling as a couple, you can tend to become a little more closed off, because you have each other. There were many times where we weren’t as open to meeting other people, or people weren’t quite as approachable. We weren’t quite as approachable being a couple, being in our own little bubble, in our own little world. I would have been more so if I were on my own, or if I were with a girlfriend. I think there’s such a value in being able to really connect and network with other people who are all living in that world. On the flip side, I came out of that first year of the trip engaged. It was such a huge growth moment for the two of us in our relationships. That was really beautiful, to be able to have such unfiltered time. The two of us really completely got to know each other.
Clinton Young: Awesome. I have a couple more questions, and I do want you to share a little bit more about how you help your clients and how people will get ahold of you before we go. What has shifted with the pandemic? Obviously there’s a lot of things that are shifting and changing, and what can still be done in the pandemic? Tell me a little bit about that. Now, I know you’ve chosen recently to plant some roots for some time. Maybe you can share with us what drove that, and is it still possible to do this in the pandemic?
Teal Elisabeth: Yeah, it’s a great question. I absolutely believe that travel needs to be an essential part of the human experience. It would be a really, really sad world if we weren’t able to share cultures, I really doubt that the world would even be able to survive in the way it has economically, financially, and culturally if we weren’t able to be an interconnected world. I think absolutely in the future it’s going to be not a problem to travel. There may just be a couple extra hoops to jump through, but what was the other part of your question?
Clinton Young: What made you decide to plant roots? Did you just know that it was time, or what was the driving force?
Teal Elisabeth: It was definitely a little bit of a rough transition because, as I mentioned, we were in Bali, up until this march. It was one of these things as the pandemic was coming, and the US Embassy was telling all us that expats need to get on the next plane home. Otherwise you’re going to be stuck in Bali for who knows how long, and we’re closing down the embassy, and there will be no support for you here. The medical system is questionable. So there was that versus making the decision to go back to the United States. It was the belly of the beast, and it was intense getting through three airports and 36 hours of planes to get to Bali. It was a really hard decision. It took about five days to actually decide. At the end of the day, we realized it was probably better to let the locals have access to the medical facilities of their own country and not be taking their precious resources. We also wanted to be close to our family and friends if anything were to happen. Stuck on Paradise Island, even though that sounds great was not really something we really wanted to happen. Once again, that uncertainty, and being able to cope with uncertainty, is just such a skill set. I think it needs to be exercised. We had a six month house sitting gig, so free rent for six months in Canada. That was supposed to happen in October, and things have been lining up. We’ve been pretty much waiting until October so we can start our house sitting gig. Now it’s the end of August, and we realize the borders are still shut to Canada. They’ve been shut and they’ve been prolonged every month. It’s just been this waiting game to see if they’re going to open up Canada. We decided that it’s time to stop living in uncertainty. It’s time to actually have some certainty, and sometimes it’s really a huge relief to be able to make some decisions and be proactive about what you want for your life. Luckily, Portland was the place that seemed to call us home. It’s nice to be able to come here and feel like everything we’ve ever wanted is in one place. This has been on my heart, hoping that I could find something like that for a long time, and it just feels really right.
Clinton Young: That’s great. That’s one of the things I’m really looking forward to while traveling around the US next year, either in an RV or a Sprinter van. My wife is really just exploring all these other cities that have so much to offer. Different eating and the different cultures here in the US. There’s such diversity right here in the US. So I’m really excited about that.
Before we finish up. What was the average length of time you stayed in most places around the world?
Teal Elisabeth: I’d say between a week to two weeks and sometimes we’d spend a month depending on where we were. I’d say two weeks to a month.
Clinton Young: What would you say to any of those folks out there who really want to do this? What are your parting words of wisdom to anyone who’s saying they want to do this, they don’t know if I can. What, what would you say to that?
Teal Elisabeth: I would say pick a date and start saving.
Teal Elisabeth: Start hard saving and just know that every single fear that you don’t even know you have is going to come to the surface to try and hold you back. When they do, Identify them and work through them either with a coach or with your partner or friends. Process and clear them, and let them go, because they are trying to keep you in your comfort zone. If you enable them and let them keep you in your comfort zone, you will live in a comfort zone your whole life. I think as you recognize, and as you talk about the real magic of life in the uncertainty outside the comfort zone you realize you have to stay there. That’s where we have to continue to push ourselves into being. As a true coach, that’s what I do with women – always push them outside their comfort zone.
Clinton Young: So, so pick a day. Start saving. At least have that three months of savings, or really whatever you want. It was about three grand a month for a couple. Also, plan for fear to arise. Plan for challenges to arise. Plan for your limiting beliefs, and the “yeah, buts.”, Plan for all that to arise, and part of that planning is to hire a dang coach so they can help you move through those challenges.
Let’s talk about what you do as a coach and who you help. Who’s your ideal client and what’s the typical problem you help your clients solve?
Teal Elisabeth: Like I said, I am a love and relationship coach, specifically helping ambitious, driven women connect more deeply with themselves and with their partner. The two big pillars that I really hold on to, and my core values, are helping women to really deepen their self confidence, their self worth, and their self respect. Also, to really deepen into their feminine energy from a place of strength, because many driven, ambitious women end up finding themselves. They get stuck in relationships with either a man who feels too soft, or they drive away good men because other men can’t handle them. They may feel they need to settle. My mission is to help open their hearts and really connect deeper into the heart space and out of the headspace. I help them do the soul cleansing work, really rinsing out any of those limiting fears and emotional baggage that is keeping them from being able to just truly, authentically shine as their true self. To connect in a heart-to-heart, intimate way with a partner.
Clinton Young: Wow. That is so awesome. So, you typically work with women. Are they entrepreneurs, do they have jobs that are a mix of both? Any other specifics about that, and then how do we find out more about you for anybody who’s interested in getting connected with you?
Teal Elisabeth: Yeah, I work with single women and women who are dating or in an “it’s complicated” kind of relationship. It’s usually women who are either entrepreneurially spirited or really driven in their careers. Obviously, any woman who’s ready to do the work and really go within and clear through their blocks. That’s what I’m here for. I have some amazing resources that I can leave with you, Clinton. I have my website and I have an incredible free training that I’m actually offering up right now. It’s called “The Three Critical Mistakes That Women Make, Keeping You From Love That Lasts.” This is something that I’ve made a culmination of after years and years of coaching women. I pulled out the three most critical mistakes that most of all women make without even realizing it, and identify those and how you can really shift out of that quickly. I post six really powerful questions to help you really think deeper about how you’re showing up in relationships. That is just a kickass gold, dynamite training if anyone’s interested. Then I have an amazing podcast, books, courses, and all the works available on my website.
Clinton Young: So we will put everything in the show notes along with whatever you want me to put in. Give us some websites where can people find you right now, verbally just so the listeners and the viewers can get that right away.
Teal Elisabeth: Yeah, I think the easiest is my Instagram account which is “@TealElisabeth_” and Elisabeth is with an “s” not a z. So you can follow me for daily inspiration and just watching my Instagram stories and seeing my day to day life behind the scenes. And then my website tealelizabeth.com once again that’s with an “s”.
Clinton Young: This was so much fun for me. I think we both knew it was going to be fun. So thank you again, so much, you’re an absolute inspiration. Anyone would be really lucky to work with you. I’m certainly inspired and I’m ready to go. So, thank you for being on the show, and have a wonderful rest of your day.
Teal Elisabeth: Thank you. Clinton, you’re welcome.
