In today’s episode of The Art of Passive Income, Mark and Scott welcome digital nomad and independent entrepreneur Johnny FD from to the show.

Johnny FD is a location independent entrepreneur who was born and raised in San Fransisco, California. Like many others, Johnny has followed the usual process which involves, going to college, get a degree, and get a good corporate job. Having done all of that, Johnny was unhappy and he desired more of what life has to offer, so in 2008 he quit his well paid corporate job and began traveling the world while working as a scuba instructor and fighting professionally in the sport of Muay Thai Kickboxing.

In 2013 he started his first online business through publishing a book on Amazon Kindle. He then replaced his 9–5 income by starting a dropshipping store that he later sold for sixty thousand dollars, which he invested into growing passive income. Since then he has generated well over a million dollars in online business and now has fourteen different streams of passive income. He has been featured on Forbes, Business Insider,, England’s Top i100 List, and other publications.
