The Secret(s) Of A Digital Nomad

Living life as a digital nomad (or a location-independent professional) is one of the most exciting ways to live life. Ten years ago it was called telecommuting. That term has come to describe someone who works for a company but doesn’t go into the corporate office each day. I like to call that a Tier 1 nomad. We’re talking about the Tier 2 nomad today.

Leveraging technology with work with travel with freedom is one of the perks of living in this day and age. With a laptop, cellular phone, Internet connection, and a bit of enterprising one can work and live/travel anywhere they want. Common digital nomad occupations are writers, photographers, web developers, personal assistants, graphic designers, and even work-as-you-go laborers. And now with the prominence of social media you can build up your brand and market internationally even as a team of one!

The real truth is that it has never been more easy to work professionally and travel consistently at the same time!

But sometimes when things seem too good to be true, they are. There are a few downsides to the ‘life nomadic.’ Besides possibly never feeling grounded or like you have a home, you also have to consider the requirements for professional work and the mental and emotional strain of generating income while on the path just to stay on the path. Not one to focus on the negative though there are a few more subtle (and perhaps obvious) plusses as well that go beyond the cut-and-dried “I travel all the time and work on the road. Isn’t that cool?” idiom.
