If you’ve thought about becoming a digital nomad but said ‘Oh, I can’t do that, I’m…’, this page is here to say ‘yes, you can!’.
One huge disclaimer here that’s also in the book: not everyone should become a nomad, but most people can. Don’t let your fear, self-doubt, or other things you can’t control stop you from making a life of your choice.
One more thing: this is not intended to be a complete or exhaustive list. It’s made up of digital nomads who talk about their life / lifestyle online — people like you that can serve as guides, inspirations, or examples. Comment or reach out to add more examples!
