The Complete Guide to Finding Chiang Mai Apartments

Chiang Mai Apartment Guide

One of the most popular requests I get from readers of JetSetCitizen is for apartment recommendations in Chiang Mai, Thailand. In most cities around the world, it’s difficult and expensive to find decent accommodations in trendy areas. Fortunately, Chiang Mai is not like most places. It’s, by far, one of the easiest and cheapest places to rent accommodations in the world. Even in the busy winter season, there are always apartments available. Although, you’ll have better choices if you can arrive before October. Here is my guide to renting a great apartment in Chiang Mai.

Chiang Mai Apartments are Not What You Think

If you haven’t been to Thailand before, I’m sure your idea of what it’s going to be like to rent an apartment here is going to be highly skewed. Your experiences renting apartments in your home country and most other travel destinations are nothing like what you’ll experience in Thailand.

There are no income checks, no reference requirements, and few long-term lease requirements.  In many places, you can rent for as little as a day. Of course, the longer you rent, the better deal you will get.

One of the most difficult things to imagine …

Make Money or Make a Difference?

In Search of Sanuk

I believe that most people want to make a positive impact on the world. Faced with a clear choice between a selfish or a generous act, most would choose to give. Yet, in our daily lives it’s easy to focus on our own immediate self-interests. We tell ourselves that someday in the future well donate more, volunteer more or work on a social business idea. It generally takes a life threatening illness or a major disaster to bring out our good side. With all the wealth and abundance in developed countries, why is doing good such a minuscule portion of our lives and economies?

People are Fundamentally Good

Disasters and emergencies, often bring out the best in people. We’ve seen it over and over again, people happily step up to donate and volunteer for tsunamis, earthquakes, floods and other tragedies.

In fact, I think most people would risk their own lives to enter a burning building or jump in front of a moving vehicle in order to save another life.

Just raising children for 20 some years takes an incredible about of giving. All we expect is that our children do the same for their children. Clearly human beings are …

Interview with Self-taught, Professional Artist Alex Mathers

In our world of endless opportunities, it can be very difficult to discover a single passion and turn it into a viable career. Alex Mathers of RedLemonClub.com , is one of those rare individuals that managed to create his dream career, starting from essentially zero.

Back in 2006, Alex decided to actively pursue his interest in art by taking online video tutorials in Adobe Illustrator. After a couple of weeks of learning and practice he started uploading his illustrations to the stock photo site iStockPhoto.com. While the majority of his illustrations were rejected, the process allowed him to further refine his skills, determine what the market was purchasing and hone in on his own unique style.

On top of his successful illustration career, Alex is also extremely popular on social media, is a popular blogger and has published four ebooks. In the interview, he shares how he started his illustration career, offers advice with blogging and shares how he got more than 80,000 Twitter followers.

Enjoy the interview. There are many great takeaways applicable to all online entrepreneurs.

Start a Blog Before the End of the World

I’m sure most of you are running around in a panic because of the end of the world, but on the small chance it doesn’t end, this is another great day to finally make some progress on that website or blog you have been thinking about. HostGator is offering another 50% off promotion for today only. (December 21st) That means you can have your own website for as little as $2.48 per month.

For about $10 per year for a domain name and a few dollars per month for web hosting, you can have your own website. It’s very easy to get started, but if you need help, I will help you get started at no charge.

The Hatchling Plan is the cheapest (from $2.48 per month), but that only allows you to have one domain main. I recommend the Baby Plan (from $3.98 per month, because it offers unlimited websites. You can get the 50% discount for up to three years if you purchase today.

Interview with Serial Entrepreneur Jun Loayza of RewardMe

Today’s interview is a little different, because it is probably the only one I’ve done that is not with a long-term traveller. Jun Loayza is a consumate entrepreneur that has been hustling his ass off for as long as I’ve know him. He talks about what it takes to build larger companies and gives an intimate look into the profitable lifestyle business he is working on with his girlfriend. Jun has plans for a more nomadic future, but for now it is all about growing the businesses.

Jun Loayza

Please tell us about yourself

My name is Jun Loayza and I’m the Co-Founder of RewardMe, a customer loyalty platform startup based in Silicon Valley, CA. I graduated from UCLA back in 2007 with a degree in Economics and Philosophy.

Post-graduation, I joined a corporate finance consulting firm in downtown Los Angeles: I wore a suit and tie and had to fill out time sheets (the legit corporate lifestyle). But the corporate job just wasn’t for me – I felt confined, uninspired, and day-dreamed constantly about building and running my own company.

3 months in, I abruptly quit my corporate job to build a startup with my friends from college.

During the …
