  • How Erik made himself into a remote worker without telling his employer;
  • Why Erik ended up in Belgrade from all the places, becoming a citizen later;

  • How Erik turned his job into a thriving, location-independent business, employing thousands of people around the world, solving a staffing problem for IT companies;
  • What passion drove Erik to start his business? Not what I thought at all!
  • From a solopreneur to a 160-people team business - how it happened, how Erik went about scaling his team;
  • Issues, professional and personal that Erik faced and still facing going through transitions;
  • Nervous breakdown while growing business, and how Erik came out of it on the other side - stronger, being able finally to let some things go and remove himself as a bottleneck - the most important business realization that allowed Erik to keep growing;
  • Erik’s human-first management style and systems in place to prevent micromanaging, and still get the job done;
  • The challenges of remote work, managing remote teams;
  • Why Erik starts every team meeting with playing music - might be his business secret;
  • “Everyone needs to feel like they are a part of something” - Erik on managing people well, and how Erik goes about doing that as he grows his company;
  • Erik and music - being a touring musician while growing his business and traveling the world - how did it all happen and what’s the purpose, the message, uniting the 2 - business and music?
  • What’s the underlying message of all Erik’s pursuits? - growing, hundreds-employees business, songs and music, YouTube channel about Belgrade, culture, nomadic experience with millions of views;
  • The next thing for Erik - community building for nomads - the challenges, why it’s important, what personal pain drives this project;
  • How constant traveling might accelerate personal growth … or delay it with escapism;
  • How Erik maintains his eating habits, his fitness and grounds himself every day to feel well, to feel like he is aligned with his life, to have good mental and physical health to support his journey;
  • How Erik is working through the patterns that might not serve him all that well anymore, patterns that we often carry with us from our childhood;
  • The importance of building some “structure” into your life as a digital nomad - otherwise it’ll all fall apart sooner or later;

… and so much more!
