Never would have thunk it.
I was riding my tiny little Honda Scoopy to a remote place in Tabanan Bali. I started thinking to myself as I rode and realized quite a few things.
Nope never in a million years. First, I never would have believed that I would be a tiktoker.
I mean it did sort of happen. As things often happen in life we are not prepared, I sure wasn’t. When I began this journey, I put out a simple statement that I am willing to help locals by visiting them and making content with them to boost their business.
It all started by not wanting to take on a yearly rental in Bali. It began because I thought I had the silly idea of moving around Bali and this way I would get to know Bali and the people I encounter. Well, My idea was correct and so was my hunch about the content.
Lost in Translation.
I first thought it was an accident and I misspoke. But I didn’t, no I was very clear and I said what I said. Yet as my video nears 100,000 views and soars past 5000 comments, I find myself chasing my tail a little.
I got myself into a pickle here. I cannot help so many people on my own. I began looking for a team and finding ways that we could make a living out of helping people. Explaining to people the circumstances are not so simple. Once they get it they too see the light.
There are hoards of people who are willing to work but do not know where to start. They need to be led and given instructions on their level and with that, they too can be inspired to open their businesses.
This is the key here my friends. This here is where people are failing. I am hoping that by going out to interview others people can see the light. As I write and edit videos, I find myself wanting to give more and more but I am limited. My interviews with others who have started and succeeded will have to do.
As I try and assemble some sort of team, I hope that I can continue giving away money and free consultation to those who need it. In the meantime, I do my best to say hello and keep the spirits of my followers up with sometimes funny and sometimes serious content.
Maybe inspiration coming from a foreigner is different. Maybe the interaction between myself and the locals makes a difference.
It makes no difference to me at the moment. If I am able to inspire people and make things happen for others, I will continue to try and make this happen. At times the travel through the Bali traffic is a bit difficult but I feel it’s worth it.
