EPISODE SLICE #20: Breaking Into the Travel World with Spencer Spellman

Boom! My first Google+ Hangout on Air is complete! Last week, Spencer Spellman from The Traveling Philosopher joined me as my guest and provided some great information. I’ll continue to mix it up doing interviews with both Hangouts and Skype in the future. My next Google+ Hangout will be tomorrow. Click here to RSVP, and when it’s time for the Hangout, just head over to my G+ profile to watch!

Here are some highlights from the interview:

  • How Spencer wasn’t always a good writer but found a mentor and greatly improved
  • If you want to be a travel writer, you have to work at it, and you have to provide great content
  • Tips for being a good travel writer
  • If you’re thinking about travel and want to do it, make/find a way to do it!
  • How “the world is the greatest classroom” and what Spencer has learned about himself through traveling
  • Examining your objectives before you travel (don’t travel to escape)
  • Getting involved in the travel community online and doing your research

… and more!

Info and Sites Mentioned in the Interview:

  • $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau – Great book about starting something with few resources, but making it happen!
  • Meet Plan Go – Awesome site for helping you decide if long-term travel is for you
  • The Traveling Philosopher – Spencer’s site!
