In my last email, I shared five reasons to become a digital nomad in 2022.
This week I want to share my Digital Nomad Getting Started Guide with you, plus a nice surprise I just received on Twitter (at the end of the email).
The digital nomad guide is available on my website now (totally free). Here are a few of the most popular sections:
How Do Digital Nomads Afford to Travel Constantly?
It’s a common misconception that travel has to be expensive. The reasoning usually goes something like this: “Last year I went on vacation to Las Vegas (or London, Disney World, etc) for a week and spent $5,000! There’s no way I could afford to live like that full-time!”
The truth is that traveling full-time probably costs less than you think, and it may even cost less than your current lifestyle at home.
How Do Digital Nomads Make Money Online
If you want to become a digital nomad with the freedom to travel whenever and wherever you want, then you are going to need a way to make money that doesn’t tie you to one specific location.
By definition, digital nomads make money by working online, usually from a laptop computer. But just because digital nomads work online doesn’t mean that they are all doing the same thing.
How to Book the Perfect Airbnb as a Digital Nomad
As a digital nomad, you will generally have a much better experience if you stay in a private apartment or house, rather than a hotel, guesthouse, or hostel.
I recommend using Airbnb for booking apartments. Here’s the exact process that I have used to book hundreds of nights in Airbnbs all over the world since 2011.
How to Meet People While You Travel
Loneliness is the cause I’ve heard cited most frequently from digital nomads who decide to pack up and head back home. And the fear of being lonely is one of the main reasons stopping aspiring digital nomads from taking the leap. But being a digital nomad doesn’t have to be a lonely lifestyle.
From the UK to Kathmandu to my Twitter DMs
It’s always nice to hear from readers like you and get feedback like this 🙏
In my next email I’ll tell you about an upcoming opportunity join a small group and work with me personally to transform your life and become a digital nomad.
That’s all for this week! More soon…

I write occasional emails to share what I’m thinking, learning, and doing. It’s all related to the idea of breaking free from the “default plan” in life.
