In this episode of the David Grey Rehab Podcast, I chat with Samantha Ciaccia, a kettlebell coach and educator who’s been building her online coaching business while traveling the world. Samantha’s journey to solopreneurship and digital nomadism is pretty impressive, and she has lots of wisdom to share, so I wanted to bring her on to learn how she’s doing it.


Listen in as we talk about growing a location independent coaching business and her strategies for creating valuable social media content and digital products. She also sheds light on her recent experience getting help for a concerning lump in her breast.


You’ll also learn the important role of critical thinking in the coaching profession, how to create diverse content around a niche, and why you should always get a second opinion when you have a health concern. Plus, Samantha offers some sage advice on how to confidently pursue your passions and live your dream.



If you’re willing to put in the time and effort, and if it’s something that you really want, you’ll make it happen. It’s like, how bad do you want it?… This is 10 years in the making, to be where I’m at.”  – Samantha Ciaccia
