How To Become a Digital Nomad

Ask Me Anything

Ask Me Anything

I have always been a big fan of Ask Me Anything threads. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to decide to do one. But, here it is, and I hope you think it’s going to be as fun as I do!

Ask Me Anything is literally that – you can ask me anything. If you’re struggling to figure out what to ask, here are a few of the topics you may want to know more about:

  • Social Media
  • Building an community online
  • Entrepreneurship
  • My life
  • Travel
  • Being location independent
  • Making extra money
  • My favourite book at the moment
  • Questions about long distance relationship

And so on, and so on.

    Hello! I am curious for some tips or resources about your system/ routine for working while traveling. I am currently freelancing full time and I have a trip coming up that I would like to continue working while I go on it!
    And, if I can be that girl who squeezes two questions in, I would love some advice or your strategy for making extra money, more specifically to keep a constant cash flow going?
    Thanks so much!!

      Hey Naomi! Thank you for your question and congrats on booking your first trip!

      This June/July I travelled all over France with my partner who is a web developer. Check ahead of time with your airbnb host/hotel/accommodation provider if they have wifi and if their wifi permits video call on Skype or Google hangout. I stayed at an airbnb in Nice and on their listing the host ticked wifi but it wasn’t wireless. Which meant unless you plug this internet cable into your computer, it didn’t work and of course, both my partner and I had to fight over it. So asking for wireless internet is something I always email my airbnb hosts about prior to booking.

      System wise, I love trello, I have all of my to-do tasks listed and organised ahead of a trip. Setting daily undisrupted work hours ( I did about 2 hours a day in the morning Mon – Thur) works really well for me too. This way, even if I am traveling, I can still have a routine. I also communicate with my client, I am traveling, but I am available between x-z hour for questions and follow up.

      To answer your second question, what type of freelance work do you do? What worked for me in the beginning is to offer clients 6 -12 months contract with added bonuses and no set up fee so this way, I know once I land a client, I have something coming in for the foreseeable future.

      Hope this helps and have the best time on your upcoming trip!

        Dora,
        Thanks so much or your reply, I will look into Trello and I appreciate your advice about keeping a routine even while traveling.
        I am a graphic and wed designer and I am currently learning and delving into digital marketing as well.
        To have a contract clients sounds like an amazing way to do freelance work. May I ask, what type of freelance work do you do and how do you go about getting clients on board for 6-12 months? What sort of bonuses do you add in?
        I greatly appreciate your advice, so helpful!!
        Cheers,
        Naomi
