E298: Running an Ecommerce Business Out of Chiang Mai, ThailandJanuary in Ecom-Crew-Podcast
Hello from Asia! We’ve been here since the middle of December, spending the holidays over in Thailand. Now we’re in Ho Chi Minh City, exploring the capital and financial center of Vietnam.
I’ve been to quite a few places in Asia but I have to say that Chiang Mai, where we’ve been staying in while in Thailand, really stands out. This mountain city is a digital nomad’s paradise. In the weeks we were there, we’ve hung out with several ecommerce entrepreneurs who or are more less permanently settled in the area.
In this episode, I chat with one of the ‘locals’. Chris Cage channeled his passion for hiking and the outdoors to come up with Greenbelly Meals, a brand that sells ready-to-eat backpacking meals. He takes me through how he started his business and how he plans to grow it in the years to come. And of course, he shares the perks of living and working in a tropical paradise.
