The Life of A Digital Nomad
There are 52 weeks in a year, and most working professionals spend only 4 of those weeks enjoying freedom. It feels almost criminal.
It’s no surprise that time moves past in the blink of an eye. If you can’t afford to reduce your work hours to do more of what you love, there’s still a way to take back control, and live life on your terms. Ever heard the expression ‘digital nomad’?
What’s a digital nomad?
Digital nomads are people who use local internet connections to work from diverse locations around the world. Their work is often freelance or remote (meaning that the company allows staff to work off-site) and the workload can vary from project-based contracts to full time hours.
From Bali to Budapest, there are many cities around the world, renowned for their affordability, great climate and proximity to incredible sights and experiences. While not every job aligns with a nomadic lifestyle, the creative and web-based industries in particular are a great fit for a digital nomad. Writers, web designers, software developers, business owners, social media managers – just to name a few – can be just as effective (if not more so) when working remotely.
If you’ve been itching to see the sights of the world, and to get a few more stamps in your passport, working as a digital nomad is one of the quickest ways to inject more adventure into your life.
