Lately, I’ve been ruminating on a topic that’s been bothering me. Throughout the duration of my childhood, I never learned how to work hard, mainly well because I never needed to. I’m guessing in this generation of youth I’m not alone. (at least I hope not.) I’ve been listening to popular entrepreneurs over the years touting the same old rag to riches story:
You will never become rich working a 9-5 job.
Hear me out on this. How much is your time worth to you? The reality is those of us who work 40-80 work weeks seldom have time to do anything other than drink wine and complain. Regardless of the salary we make, time is both the ultimate currency and investment. It is something we can give but never gain. If we are working 80% of the time and living 20% of the time guess what? Our model for living life is broken. This needs to change.
What is a digital nomad? Digital Nomads are individuals that leverage technology in order to work remotely and live an independent and nomadic lifestyle.
That means work wherever you want however you want. Sound too good to be true? Well, it definitely is not! Bloggers, artists, writers and entrepreneurs all over the world have found a way to embrace this unique lifestyle.
