What is Work Freedom?
Work Freedom, is being able to work the hours you desire and from any location. Living in the digital era, it is now very easy to do this. Digital nomads take advantage of technology and are able to work in any location of their choosing. Also, they are able to work as many hours as they desire.
What is a digital nomad?
When you think about the term, ‘digital nomad’, it sounds a bit hip, a little bit pretentous and bit like it sounds completely made up and means nothing. It is like calling yourself a Jedi. However, it does mean something as we have now embraced the ‘digital nomad’ age.
I mean, when you think about it it sounds a bit… cool, but also a little wankery and a bit like it doesn’t mean anything at all. It’s like calling yourself a space ranger or something.
But it really does mean something. We used to avoid using it but we changed our minds and have totally embraced the “digital nomad” phrase now. We are now able to work from anywhere in the world and the freedom to work whichever hours we please. This is the kind of lifestyle myself and digital nomads live.
Digital nomads are widely misunderstood. We are simply people that see how we can take advantage of technology to create freedoms that better and enrich our lives. This is where the ‘digital’ part in ‘digital nomads’ comes in.
With the freedom to work anywhere in the world, most digital nomads choose to be location independent.
If you didn’t have to be tied to one location, why would you travel around and see the world? Digital nomads usually work from home, coffee shops, co-working spaces, hotel rooms etc. All we need is a laptop and good wifi connection and good coffee 😉
What type of jobs do digital nomads do?
In today’s world there are lots of jobs that a digital nomad can do, from freelance writers, graphic designers, software developers, web designers or virtual assistants.
There are also other options too. It all depends on what you like doing. However if you are looking for job security, you can work remotely for a company. You can also make money from affiliate marketing and blogging.
How Do I make Money?
Consulting & Mentoring
I provide mentoring and consulting. Whether it is marketing, design, content creation, I can assist! Offering consulting on branding and online marketing to help you find your niche market and deliver your brand in an authentic way that generates traffic, sales and business growth.
I research trends and investments, then decide what stock I am going to invest in. I tend to stick to cryptocurrency, even though it is volatile, I invest for the long term not the short and try and only check my portfolio monthly, in order to maximize productive time.
I tend to use white-label websites for my affiliate marketing. This is where the site is produced my a company and I re-brand it, to make it appear like mine. I also use affiliate links and promote on sites and social media to create extra income when they convert into sales.
