Ahh, a life filled with beaches and tropical islands…
While life as a digital nomad is certifiably NOT a vacation everyday – it’s living your daily life with exotic backdrops – it certainly beats life inside a cubicle.
And it’s been proven (by people a lot smarter than me) that remote workers are happier workers.
If you’ve been considering leaving your job to enjoy a location-independent lifestyle, there are really two paths forward:
- Start a business that will support your lifestyle
- Find a remote job that will support your lifestyle
Seems like these days everyone wants to over complicate this “digital-nomad” thing and make it into a movement and a particular “skill” you need.
“Digital Nomad” is not a job title, career or position.
Truth is, a digital nomad is simply someone that has the ability to earn a living online and chooses to travel full-time instead of have a traditional home.
There are no rules or requirement other than the gumption to pack your life into a suitcase and find a way to make it work.
So if you’re thinking you’d like to try this life, and you’re not ready to start a business – DON’T.
Some people are not meant to be in business for themselves, and that is OKAY.
There is nothing wrong with you if you don’t want to start a business, and you do NOT have to be an entrepreneur to be location-independent.
