About Me

👋🏾Hello friends, I’m Ranika Koneru, a seasoned digital nomad who took a leap of faith four years ago. Leaving behind a corporate career, I pursued a life of adventure, exploring over 50 countries.

⛰️It was far from easy. I felt trapped in a cycle of monotony until I discovered the world of high-ticket affiliate marketing. Despite intial criticism from friends and Asian parents, I embraced this journey of self-discovery, delving into the depths of entrepreneurship and real estate investing.

✈️I’ve scaled three businesses and have closed on 4 homes and counting, spoken on prominent international stages about creating passive income systems to leave the 9-5 and create financial freedom and travel independence. 

🔥Now, I help others do the same and help them learn step-by-step how to create their own cashflow systems and thrive through community with in-depth travel both on and offline.

☁️Out of this arose my passion to create community with Cloud Connections – Cashflow X Culture —an in person experience merging financial freedom with cultural immersion.

⚡Join us as we empower you to thrive financially while experiencing the richness of global cultures through immersive workshops and authentic festivals like Holi in India or Carnival in Rio.

🚀 Book a call with me or take a look at our latest upcoming retreat and transform your life today!🚀

Sehe and Ricardo Cloud Connections guest testimonial
Sehe & Ricardo

We had an incredible experience with Cloud Connections! From the moment we arrived, everything was impeccably organized. We were delighted to find extra perks like in-house massages and tours that were accommodated seamlessly. We're both eager to attend the next event in Chiang Mai and left with the added bonus of connecting with amazing individuals along the way.

Kelly Cloud Connections samba Rio

I was blown away when I entered the Cloud Connections villa in Rio, Brazil. They found an absolutely beautiful, vibrant space and everyone was so inviting and friendly. I got some work done on the roof terrace then had samba lessons by the pool. What could be better?! I can't wait for the next one!

Brazil Rio Coworking Cloud Connections

I attended Cloud Connections villa in Rio to cowork for one day. Location was pretty nice on top of a hill with a pool; staff were friendly and other digital nomads were easy to get along with. Overall a great time. Highly recommend.


I had a blast joining the coworking (Lightning Round) of Cloud Connections in Santa Teresa, Rio de Janeiro. With a great group of amazing people, we combined focused work and lots of fun in an amazing villa up on the hill of one of Rio's loveliest neighbourhoods. After work, we enjoyed sunset caipirinha's by the pool, experienced many local samba parties and visited beautiful beaches by the boat. Ranika did a great job of bringing all of us together and facilitating an amazing time. Thank you!

Cloud Connections Reviews

My time in Rio with Cloud Connections was unforgettable. From partying till 7am to lounging pool side to helicopter rides... it was truly the trip of a lifetime! Ranika works very hard to make sure everyone is comfortable and included and there is a diverse array of activities for everyone. It feels like a community every step of the way.

I spent a day working out of Cloud Connections in Rio and have a wonderful time. "Everyone was welcoming and friendly and I was served a delicious slice of chocolate cake beside a rooftop pool. Hard to complain about spending a work day like that! The space is beautiful with unique murals painted in some of the rooms and there was plenty of room to spread out and find a peaceful and pretty area to get your work done!

Dacia (accommodation host)

We were very happy to be part of Cloud Connections’ first launch. From the very beginning, communication was great. After the group’s arrival, we all bonded and the month went by too quickly. It was apparent to see the hard work that went into hosting a group from around the world during the highest season in Rio. Ranika did this with ease and it was amazing to watch. We hope to host the group again in the future if possible.
