Key Takeaways

  • A little bit of micro success can lead you to push forward and keep testing and adapting your strategy.
  • It’s important to launch even if your work isn’t perfect–you can always iterate later.
  • Having a process in place for creating content (like assigning roles and deadlines) can help you move more quickly.
  • It’s possible to freelance and travel at the same time, though it may require some extra effort to get started.
  • Investing your time into long-term assets (like a website) can pay off in the long run, even if it isn’t immediately profitable.
  • It’s important to find a balance that works for you between what you need and what you can fit in your luggage.
  • Consider the type of travel you’ll be doing when packing — will you be staying in one place for a longer period of time or moving around frequently?

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.
