Would you like to create a business that you can run from anywhere? Maybe, you’d like to work from home and have more time to spend with the people you love. Want to travel more, go where you want, when you want?
If you’re ready to totally change how you live, go forward on your terms, not the ones dictated by your current 9 to 5, keep reading.
This article outlines the best resources to teach you how to become a digital nomad.
Are you struggling with how to become location independent?
If you’ve started to research how to build a location independent career I’m sure you feel overwhelmed by all of the information available online. There are millions of words, and scads of free advice floating around in cyberspace.
We’ve been digital nomads since 2014, working from our laptops while traveling the world with our son.
We had read a lot of that free information online before we’d set out to travel perpetually. We left our life in Canada feeling we knew all we needed to sustain our travel lifestyle.
But we were wrong, our road to location independence was riddled with so many costly mistakes. All of that reading we had done had been loaded with contradictions and conjecture. We often felt like we were stumbling in the dark, grasping at straws all while time and our bank account were slowly slipping away.
Every way of life includes a routine- a location independent lifestyle is no exception. Living as a digital nomad is very appealing to a lot of people. But many who embark on this kind of journey fail to make it sustainable. They think they know how to become location independent but fall short in one way or another and are forced to return to the same life they wanted to escape.
There are certain fixed components to living a location independent lifestyle. Let me start by saying, there’s a massive learning curve. If you’re considering location independence you’ll need to get ready to do a lot of learning!
Learn real skills that will allow you to do work you enjoy, for the rest of your life with The Paradise Pack: a bundle of world-class educational products from travel, location independent and online business experts. Over $7500 worth of amazing resources, available for one week for over 90% off. Don’t miss it!
Here are some common things digital nomads have to deal with.
Figuring out the best way to make money on the road,
The biggest challenges associated with this are finding decent paying digital nomad jobs, figuring out which existing skills translate well to different types of online work, and learning which jobs will be enjoyable.
working to get the best travel deals,
Traveling affordably takes a ton of forethought. Jetting off here or there on a whim can end up costing you a lot more than you bargained for. There is a science to this and it’s imperative to master it as soon as possible to keep your bank account and your sanity in shape.
Plane tickets can be one of the most costly travel expenses. Finding deals and learning effective strategies to reduce the cost of flights is important to preserve funds.
acquiring good affordable places to stay,
Hotels are expensive, hostels can be chaotic, and finding great cheap short-term rentals can be a challenge. Learning ways to procure great accommodation that’s affordable is one of the first things any aspiring digital nomad needs to do if they have any hope of sustaining this incredible lifestyle.
finding the right mindset,
Embarking on a location independent lifestyle takes a lot of mental strength. Finding the right mindset to achieve your goals, manifest lasting happiness, and realize the fulfilling feeling of location independence is paramount to sustaining a digital nomad lifestyle.
and language learning.
Learning how to communicate effectively in foreign countries is imperative when trying to negotiate a good price, find things you need, or efficiently navigate a new city.
Many people have set out to travel perpetually without having a good grip on many of these important skills. We were some of them! We know how overwhelming it can be to wade through all of the information offered online.
There are experts in each of the areas listed above. Do you know who they are?
We do, we’ve had personal experience with the services they offer and even consider some of them personal friends.
These are the people who can help you make money online faster!

The word is commercial concerns are revaluating Google advertising.

Great news! Interesting times!
Ryan Biddulph says
Sweet list Rob. Big fan of being a digital nomad. If you dive into fears and embrace the work aspect of running a full time online business, the fun, freeing nature of DMing it is astounding. I am writing these words from freaking New Zealand…are you kidding me? Nuts.
Rob Tullis says
Thanks Ryan, I am so glad we took this path it has been amazing! We have traveled for the last 4 years, my son has loved every minute of it. He is nine now and has been to 15 countries already. The road has not always been easy but learning to earn online has been rewarding. We have spent the last 7 months in Mexico and will be here until Sept when we plan to head back to Europe!
Jey Jetter says
Great list, Rob! Being a digital nomad myself, I can confirm that it takes a lot more than people often think to be sustainably living the nomadic lifestyle!! When I started in 2011, I had no idea how much organisational skills are necessary to make your journey save and smooth! So cool that you put these useful tips together and help others save time and money!
Rob Tullis says
Thanks Jey, we also had no idea what it took to sustain this lifestyle, far more than we thought. We have gone through fits and starts but now are well on our way to keep this lifestyle going!
