Digital nomads refer to those travel and work through the use of technology at the same time. It is a lifestyle that’s quickly gaining popularity. They’re usually millennials with brains for hire. It can be a perfect lifestyle for you too, check out the fantastic benefits that comes with being a digital nomad.
I last spoke of seeking a travelling lifestyle and monetising it at the same time. I’ve spoken to many people about this and it seems like this is one of the best options.
Here are some reasons that appeal to me:
1. Freedom to Choose Your Work Environment
One of the perks of being a digital nomad the freedom from a suffocating physical workplace. You can choose whereever you like to work; working in a cafe, in a restaurant, or even while enjoying a beautiful view, as long as there’s good internet connection, working will not be a problem. Having troubles with difficult colleagues? Worry no more. Digital nomads don’t have these problems. Working in a more quiet and peaceful environment, imagine how great that is.
2. Work with Less Hassle
No commuting, no dressing up, you can be safe from the hassle that usually comes with working; saving you more time, money, and effort. You don’t have to spend time going to work, or for making yourself presentable. Just be yourself and work comfortably.
3. Have it Your Way
You are in charge. Having your own way of working, having a flexible schedule, getting to decide how much work to do, and what kind of work you want to do; your own job, your own rules. How lovely is that?
4. Financial Benefits
As a freelancer, you can choose who to work for. Working for someone who pays higher than others, or not, it’s your choice. Choosing to stay in a place where the cost of living is lower, your choice too. You can use this chance to strategize and be as rich as you can, or maintain your traveling lifestyle.
5. Living an Exciting Life
When you are this free, you can do anything you want. Visit any place you want, eat what you want to eat. You’ll never have a dull and boring moment with this lifestyle. Be spontaneous. Be bold. Be brave. Face new challenges, start new adventures. There are just no limits.
Even though being a digital nomad has its advantages, it’s not always easy. It still requires equal amount of hard work and dedication like any other jobs out there. It isn’t for everyone.
I’ll be mulling over this in the meantime.
