Season 4 – Episode 07: A Special and Different Festival Experience – Pop-Up Hotel!

Owner and Founder – The Pop-Up Hotel – Mark Sorrell talks to Jason Allan Scott on the show.

It’s really hard to find a really special and different festival experience.

‘But that’s just what the Pop Up Hotel provides to its new and returning guests – all the atmosphere of staying under canvas with the comfort and luxury of a boutique hotel.

‘When you return to the Pop Up Hotel or Motel site, tired and muddy, you can use the hot showers before visiting the pop-up restaurant or street-food area.’

We’re still not sure quite how a ‘street food area’ is that different from ‘street food in an area with a lot of food vans’ except the price-tag but the atmosphere, he says, is different:

‘You can sit out and soak up the calming atmosphere before retiring to your chosen accommodation,’ he says.

‘Having woken fully refreshed, you’ll be ready for whatever the day holds.’

Season 4 – Episode 05: Sever The Mental Connection Between Time and Work

Tim Ferris and Jason Scott on the 4-Hour Workweek, 10 years ago #1 New York Times best-selling author Tim Ferriss, taught the world how to escape the 9-5, live anywhere, and join the new rich. Jason read the book on his honeymoon in 2015 and on this episode he talks to his wife about how the 4-Hour Workweek changed his business and his life. To paraphrase Tim, “You don’t want a million dollars, you want the lifestyle you think having a million dollars will get you. Jason now has this lifestyle getting to speak all over the world, write books, travel and help others make money and lose fat. I was working 60-80 hour weeks in events when I read The 4-Hour Workweek. Talk about a paradigm shift. Tim taught me to sever the mental connection between time and work. Once I started looking for ways to make money without spending my time–automating the process, I am proud to say that I am now able to make money with minimal time on my part. SPOILER ALERT! I made it down to just four hours per week!!
