Are you ready to #gonomading?

But First!
Some Direction and Departure Information



01. The Caveat

Let’s be clear from the start: THIS IS NOT A TRAVEL SHOW! This means we won’t be biking across America or traversing Mongolia on a train or sitting on the edge of Lake Geneva beholding the mountains dressed in blankets of snow.

This is about travelling in the mind!


Join the podcast to learn about travelling in the mind! It will be an eye-opening experience, believe me. That being said, many of the colourful stories will come from our guests’ incredible journeys. So in the end, international flavours will become part of this big time, so don’t worry.


is about movement to a more expansive yet tightly focused view of the world: your world and your organization’s world.

02. Our Weekly Episodes

In each episode of this weekly series, I will engage world-class leaders from an assortment of industries and areas (digital nomadic, sports, arts, entertainment, business, finance, etc.) in conversation to discover their interpretation of the Nomadic Mindset, how it shows up in their lives, and the impact it has had on their success, direction, and purpose in life. I will invite them to share strategies, tools, and tactics, so you can also awaken the Nomadic Mindset within you. Most importantly, I will encourage them to share their exotic, compelling stories with you. 

03. Your Participation

Get involved in the conversations by commenting, post-podcast, and offering positive thoughts, experiences, stories, and ideas that can help us all grow, learn, and expand. These should be voiced in a friendly, community-based, professional-fashion. Just so you know, any nasty or obscene language will not be tolerated.   



Grounding Quotes of TNMP

The roots of which TNMP is grounded upon are

“Nomad = The Movement of the Mind”

Batgerel Bat, Head of the National Branding Council of Mongolia


“Think Vastly, Act Narrowly”

Binderiya, Student at the National University of Mongolia


Meaning of Nomad

Okay, so, what is the meaning of nomad? Most people think it means a culture that “moves from place to place to find new pastures.” True, according to Wikipedia.

But that’s actually not true. When I was researching my book, The Nomadic Mindset: Never Settle…for Too Long, Batgerel Bat, the Head of the National Branding Council of Mongolia, told me it actually means “The Movement Of The Mind.” Now that this is a whole different matter, right?

What is the Nomadic Mindset?

For thousands of years nomads roamed the world. Today, they are mostly seminomadic, settled and restricted to smaller geographical regions because of many reasons: governments, borders, political and cultural negativity towards them, climate change, and more.

Let’s face it, we all originally came from a nomadic past, and movement is in our DNA. It seems over the centuries, due to industrialization, commercialism, political power, and more, we just have forgotten or lost the true humanity that exists within a nomadic culture. 

The Nomadic Mindset is represented by certain qualities, attitudes, and behaviours—like any mindset—and these will be revealed through the feeling, attitude, and fun of TNMP. 

Personal Belief for this Nomadic Mindset Movement

My personal belief is that we, as a human race in general, are becoming too narrow in our thinking patterns and habits, which is making us vulnerable to all the fear being perpetrated by many sources around the world: politics, corporations, and cultures. 

TNMP can help us discover, explore, and experience more positive options, opportunities, and paths forwards so we can then more pro-actively take back our inner power and be more consciously aware of the obsession for power ruling those on the outside. 

Research for The Nomadic Mindset

My research of nomadic cultures in Mongolia, the Maasai in Southern Kenya, and the Berbers of Sahara in Southern Morocco, plus many global executives from start-ups to multinationals, helped me define what The Nomadic Mindset is and why it is a vital, defining necessity for today. 

So, the strapline for the leadership book, The Nomadic Mindset: Never Settle…for Too Long, is also the same for TNMP.

Ancient wisdom meets modern leadership to inspire a fresh path forwards to Industry 4.0.

In TNMP, we will discover together the Why, What, Where, and How of global thinkers, most of who have a dominant Nomadic Mindset.

Enough of all this chatter.
It’s time to Discover.
