Tammy Camp’s Story on How She Runs Her Empire As an Online Entrepreneur While Kite BoardingAug 18, 2010 // Jorja McKinney
Her name is Tammy Camp. She is a champion kite boarder, a successful online entrepreneur and someone who is living a lifestyle design that most people have only been dreaming about. She travelled to the Dominican Republic and just like that, decided to stay there and do what she loved the most. Here is this girl who made me feel like nothing else could be better than being able to travel all over the world, do what it is that you truly love and still generate enough passive income to be able to benefit from what the other parts of the world has to offer.
I was able to have the chance to catch up with her since she is not one that is easy to reach because of her non-stop travelling in different parts of the globe. I was lucky enough to spend some time interviewing her and what she shared with me seemed unbelievable to people in general but she did it and it eventually cleared some of these doubts in my head. I have learned from her that anybody can do what she does as long as they have the determination and belief of living the life that they want.
She was a normal office girl before she started kite boarding four years ago. All she did was work but it all changed when one of her girlfriends invited her for a trip to the Dominican Republic. Her girlfriend literally had to take a map out and point to her where the Dominican Republic is. What was supposed to be a 10 day trip for her ended up being 6 months of staying on the beach. She decided to drop everything and spent the next two years kite boarding all over the world. She had gone to 13 different countries in two years.
She had been keeping apartments all over the world because of her unusual lifestyle but she gave a very useful tip for people who are just starting out. She calls is geocaching. It is a method she used to rent storage in order to store her clothes and other necessary things she needs in a particular country. She then does not have to bring another set of clothing when she visits a country. This is a very convenient way of saving up instead of having to rent an apartment in another country that you rarely use or spending more than you have to for bringing loads of luggage on every trip.
One valuable advice that Tammy wanted to give to those who are planning to live amazing lives travelling and exploring the world is not to give in to these preconceived notions of spending a so much when it comes to international travel. You do not need to have a million dollars in the bank to travel internationally. In many cases, it is even cheaper to go to the Dominican Republic than travelling to New Jersey!
There are certain tools that Tammy was able to reveal with regards to what she uses when running her business overseas. Her number one tool is the Blackberry. They have this service called the BBM which enables a person to exchange texts, photos and voice messages to anyone who is on the network for free. She had collected friends all over the world from her travels and they use this particular service to communicate to each other, as well as communicating to those who work for her. She can then keep track of her business no matter where she is.
She is also a big fan of Google Apps which are basically Gmail, Google Docs and Google Calendar for small businesses. You can actually host your domains through Google and you can sync your calendars to your iPhones or Blackberrys. It is interchangeable and you do not have to pay for it. You also do not have to bring your computer with you as long as you have your Cloud applications. These are services hosted through the internet. Anybody can access his or her data using this application from anywhere in the world that has internet access.
Now these are absolutely brilliant advices from someone who is living the life that most of us just keep on dreaming about. Now Tammy Camp making a lot of appearances at conferences and is on her way to DC to be on the panel along with Tim Ferriss and other successful online entrepreneurs.
