This course shares the real world knowledge for how to start an online video business with your camera through the use of your video footage, video skills, and a laptop. It will arm you with the knowledge and blueprint you need to earn an online passive income.The other core focus is to build your business while living in another destination like Chiang Mai. You are free to work on your online business anywhere, but if you are starting from ground zero you have to give yourself some time to build up your revenue especially if living in an expensive city like Vancouver, New York, or London. There are several benefits to working abroad in a destination like Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Chiang Mai Thailand has become one of the worlds most popular locations for other like-minded online entrepreneurs (digital nomads) to base themselves, offers a high standard of living at low cost, warm weather, and a great internet and cafe/co work space infrastructure and culture.
The course is taught by me Greg Hung. I used to be a Canadian IT manager, but I've been living abroad as a Digital nomad videographer living a location independent lifestyle from Taiwan and Thailand.
I spoke live unscripted at the famous Nomad coffee club friday
meet in Nimman Chiang Mai, Thailand to an audience of Digital nomads.
They asked some excellent specific questions related to my online video business that I've organized into the first section.
I understand the Digital nomad lifestyle may be something you may not know much about as it has only emerged in the past several years with advancements in laptops, Internet speeds, and growing communities. That is why I've included a separate section with an essential living guide to help prepare you and get you started in Chiang Mai Thailand. I cover basics like where to live, meet people, get connected, and prices of apartments.
I made the mistake of starting my business in Vancouver alone in my apartment. I should have come to Chiang Mai, Thailand where I could work with like-minded people. Starting a business is a lot more fun and it makes a lot more sense if you're learning from people that are doing similar things in a unique setting such as Chiang Mai. I hope to see you in your course to start your entrepreneurial journey.

Hi! I was born in South Africa but as a child my family relocated to Canada and lived most of adult life in beautiful British Columbia. I remember getting a VHS camcorder and would make and direct my own home videos with my sisters. I attended Simon Fraser University (SFU) with a Communications degree and had another opportunity to film an educational hip-hop video for earth quakes. After I graduated university I went on to have a successful IT career working 13 years in the field.As an IT manager I went onto pursue my MBA at SFU and found inspiration to start my own business and travel and film.By the time I had completed my MBA in 2011 I had found my passion travel, business, and filming.
During a wild and intense 3-year period I sold my house and purchased a camera and traveled the globe with my camera in search of adventure. I traveled to places such as Beijing, Singapore, Shanghai, The Grand Canyon, and Turks and Caicos. During this period a new revolution with the SLR camera was allowing people to create cinema quality video. I spent countless hours trying to learn everything I could from the best to hone my craft.I currently have over 100 videos on youtube and have one of the strongest travel video collections on the Internet. I recommend you check out my videos on-line if you’re interested in watching my videos.
After returning to Vancouver I planned my next travel adventure to Australia, Asia, and Taiwan. I sold my car and all my possessions and arrived in Taiwan with my essentials, camera gear, and my dreams. I currently live in Taiwan learning mandarin, teaching English, and filming travel videos.
I believe I’m a continuous learner (currently learning Mandarin) and I’m always looking for new and interesting ways to learn things.I get upset when an article gives advice or directions and it is so general it leaves out the important details. I try to provide detailed step-by-step instructions using visuals or video. I hope you find my courses interesting and I see you in there!
