Earlier this year (2017) I was asked by AND CO to contribute to their ambitious digital project: a digital nomad’s digital bible, aptly called ANYWHERE. I wrote the last chapter, How to Be a Student of the World.
About the book
ANYWHERE is written for freelancers, solopreneurs and remote workers who are drawn to the possibilities, opportunities, and challenges that a nomadic lifestyle brings. In AND CO’s recent Slash Workers report, 60 percent of freelancers surveyed said they would be interested in living as a digital nomad in future.
So, what’s stopping them?
For some workers, it might be personal obligations or job restrictions—but for many freelancers, it’s the fear of the unknown. No doubt, the life of a digital nomad is full of unknowns, especially at the very beginning. Where will you live? What will you do to earn a living? How will you take care of yourself? These are all reasonable questions to ponder as you make your decision.
Since living and working as a digital nomad is such a unique experience, we leaned on insights from more than 100 people who have been there before to capture the fundamentals of living a nomadic lifestyle. Each chapter was written by a current digital nomad, and dozens of best practices from their peers can be found throughout the chapters.
ANYWHERE provides a broad-based education around several aspects of nomadic life, so you have a solid footing before you decide to pack your bags and begin your new life.
Such topics include:
- How to transition your life and your career to that of a nomad
- How to build your remote work safety net
- How to select the host city & living situation that’s right for you
- How to navigate the tax & legal complexities that a nomadic lifestyle can bring
- How to effectively communicate with clients & colleagues afar
- How to approach wellness, self-care and family life as a nomad
- How to be a respectful nomad & true student of the world
