7 Ways To Try Out The Digital Nomad And Entrepreneur Lifestyle
If you have ever been curious about entrepreneurship, and wanted to give it the college try guess what!?!:
You don’t have to walk away job and try to get an online business going without prior knowledge and increase your chances of going into debt.
There’s no need to dive your head in first if you had no swimming lessons first. Or jump out of a plane without a parachute.
Here are 7 suggestions if you always wanted to try it out:
1. Want to be your own boss? Want to learn how to freelance or build an online business while traveling or outside your job? No problem! There are several programs online which has step by step blueprints. You can learn how to change your mindset, find the right customers for your business and learn the right skills. It will take a while because these are not get rich quick schemes and you will have to put in the work. Two websites I personally use to find freelancing work is Upwork and Freelancer.
2. Start working away from office to see if you can work without input from a boss. Work out a remote work agreement. Tim Ferriss has strategies and scripts you can use to negotiate in his book For Hour Work Week.
3. When looking for work, consider finding a company that will allow you to
work remotely (home, the park, a beach). Make sure you read any and all terms for remote type work.
4. If you are at a company that doesn’t allow remote type work, try freelancing during your vacation time. Try working on a few work tasks during your vacation to see how you handle distractions.
5. However, If you do score a remote work agreement or find a job that lets you work remotely give yourself a pat on a back! Try out going to a new city in a new country for several months. There’s a great list of cities for Digital
Nomads at Nomadlist.com. Some of my favorites are Bangkok, Thailand,
Tallinn, Estonia, Liverpool, United Kingdom and Amsterdam, Netherlands.
6. Make sure you learn about how to beat procrastination, distractions and
unmotivation, and hard times. Without that direct pressure from a boss in a normal work environment, it will be different. Also, make sure you find a group of like-minded people. There’s a chance your friends and family won’t support you because they won’t understand what you are doing. If they support you, great.
7. After giving it a go, you will know if it’s something you want to keep
