Episode 078: Interning in India – Part 1

“I know I will always be traveling.”

This week’s guest is Chelsea Baldwin from Get Copy Power. After graduating with a Journalism degree in 2010 and not being able to find a job in the United States, Chelsea took an internship in India and spent the next two years exploring the region. (Don’t forget to check out the bonus clip below about how Chelsea got the internship in the first place.) She’s currently living back in the US but doesn’t view it as a negative thing.

“It doesn’t really feel like a sacrifice. It kind of feels like a symbolic move where I was able to really afford living in the US; and living exactly the life I want.”

After India she moved to Brazil to live a cheaper lifestyle while building her own copywriting and marketing business. Given all the negative attention the media has been giving Brazil regarding the Olympics, and the fact that most of my guests don’t exactly have the greatest things to say about the country, I jumped at the chance to get Chelsea’s take on living there.

“If you’re accustomed to traveling alone, Brazil’s fine.”

Chelsea and I also discuss how her traveling has changed now that she runs a successful location independent business and the role she sees travel playing in her future.

“I’m traveling less but my trips are bigger and they’re more fulfilling than just quick little weekend things.”
