Episode #59: How to Travel the World without worrying about a job with Janak and Nalisha Patel

Listen to the interview here:


Janak and Nalisha Patel made some big changes in their life, and fortunately, they had their bucket list to guide them. They’ve been together since they were 17 and 20 years old. Like anyone that age, they had big dreams; they wanted to travel, have nice cars, a huge house and live by the beach. They wanted it all.

Janak and Nalisha Patel on traveling the world

Initial “success”

They got off to a great start. Janak began a career as a mechanical engineer, and in 2004, Nalisha started a personal training business in their home country of New Zealand. In 2005, Janak was getting tired of the grind in his engineering job and quit to help Nalisha build her personal training business. At the same time, he began learning about online business.

Nalisha’s personal training business was very successful. They were making good money, had nice cars and lived by the beach. They finally had it all. They had everything they required for success.

Redefining success

When the business began to experience some issues, they saw an opportunity to take a step back and reevaluate what was important. So they asked themselves, “What does success really mean to us?”

Janak and Nalisha’s definition of success

“Success is being able to do all the things that really matter – first. It means being mobile and being able to just enjoy life on our terms.”
