Key Takeaways

  • Trust your skills and give it some time.
  • It’s important to network, especially as a digital nomad, in order to get work recommendations and referrals.
  • Experience is key in any field, and this is no different for digital nomads.
  • The market for remote work is growing, especially in light of the pandemic. There are more opportunities than ever before for people with specific skill sets.
  • The digital nomad lifestyle can be quite lonely, especially if you’re constantly moving around and don’t have a lot of time to build deep relationships. A great way to meet people and make friends while digital nomading is to find others with similar interests and passions. This could be through online communities or in-person activities like surfing or diving. No matter where you go, it’s important to be open to meeting new people and building relationships from scratch.
  • Be mindful of the amount of waste you produce, and how you can reduce it.
  • Consider the speed of travel when making decisions about moving around.
  • Look for ways to repurpose or donate items instead of throwing them away.
  • Seek out co-working spaces in order to access necessary amenities in a short-term rental situation.

I've been building digital businesses, wandering the world, and writing about optimizing life for freedom since early 2017. My mission is to lower the barrier for people who want to live with more freedom: whether that be as an entrepreneur, a digital nomad, an early retiree, or just as someone who wants to live a happiness-driven life.
