How do I become a digital nomad?

To become a digital nomad, you need four things:

  • A desire to take control of your life
  • A source of income
  • A place to stay
  • An internet connection

There’s more to consider, of course, but that’s all you need. You don’t need some fancy backpack, an overpowered computer, or a special shirt. Start with a desire to take control of your life and let’s go from there.

Becoming a digital nomad is a process, and there will be a period of transition. I don’t want to overwhelm you here, but there are a number of important questions you’ll want to think about:

  • Where are you?
  • What will you do for money?
  • Who’s joining you?
  • Where are you excited to go?
  • What are you excited to do / try once you’re there?
  • What needs to be done before you can leave?

Give yourself some time and mental space to really think about these things.



This is just getting good.
