Living the digital nomad life sounds like a dream. You get to travel the world and work from your laptop and phone, discovering new places and being free at all times. However, this lifestyle comes with some things nobody really tells you before you get into it, and here they are.
It’s Not That Easy to Earn From Instagram
Being an Instagram influencer seems like a piece of cake, right? You just have to travel a lot, take amazing photos, get people to follow you and the money will come. Well, more people are trying to do this than you can even imagine and the number of those who succeed in making a living this way is really, really small.
You Could Keep Your Job
If this pandemic has thought us anything, it’s that so many jobs can actually be done remotely. You don’t have to be an influencer or blogger to have the freedom to choose where you will live. In fact, your current job may be the secret to your ability to travel all year long. It’s important that your boss trusts you and that you can work independently before you ask for this opportunity.
You Can Sell Your Home (if You Have One)
It may sound extreme, but some people sell their homes and most of their possessions in order to truly be able to travel whenever, wherever they want. This is definitely a decision that needs to be left for after you’ve traveled for a while, but if you find this new lifestyle fits you, why not?
