Become a Digital Nomad
The ‘Digital Nomad‘ lifestyle sounds enticing right? Travel the world while working online with any number of skills in the digital workplace. To become a digital nomad is certainly possible. While it’s totally possible to live a life of travel while working online, it’s best to not plunge into the Digital Nomad lifestyle without a good degree of preparation.
First of all, you need some digital skills you can offer. Anything from web design to copy writing to article writing to customer service. Second, you should already be making money from clients and hopefully repeat clients. You need to be making enough income to support the additional expense of traveling, add to that some buffer cash for any emergencies you may encounter on your travels.
Plunging starry-eyed into the nomadic digital lifestyle is a recipe for disaster. A hard question you must ask yourself is do you really have the proper mindset, maturity and dedication to hard work to make this lifestyle work.
Working and traveling while providing any type of digital marketing requires a strong desire to learn, the willingness to edure loneliness, and be willing to be a marketer of yourself. You need to have a strong desire to be a Digital Nomad, – that means having a ‘fire in your soul’ and an incredible amount of motivation, discipline and drive.
