Complete Guide For Beginners
When I got my first remote job a couple of years ago, would’ve never imagined that this location-independent lifestyle would change my entire life. I had no idea how to become a digital nomad. But this temporary job suddenly opened a whole new world to me: I was able to travel the world, live wherever I wanted to and make money online. I was hooked and knew that this is the perfect way of living for me.
What Is a Digital Nomad?
Let’s have a look at the definition of a digital nomad first:
A digital nomad is a person who uses technologies, such as smartphones, laptops and wireless internet, to make money online while often traveling the world, or at least move in an undefined frequency from one place to another.
As you can see the digital nomad lifestyle consists of two parts:
- Making money online and
- Traveling or moving (“nomading”) from one place to another.
Means, not everyone who has a remote or location-independent job is automatically a digital nomad. They need the nomad part, too. On the other hand, long-term traveller, who do local jobs around the world, are no digital nomads either. They are surely nomads, but are obviously missing the digital part.
