Why did you decide to become a digital nomad?
I was already resettling quite often, and every time I was shifting from a country to another, I had to find a job again. So I chose to build a career where my job will travel with me.
How do you make a living as a digital nomad?
I'm an Entrepreneur, Co-Founder of "The Picky Monkey" project and I work as a Business Developer and Coach mostly for Women's Empowerment.
What is a day like for you?
6:30 I woke up and had breakfast with strawberry muesli, yogurt, and banana. Had a coffee and read the news. Took a shower, made another coffee and sat in my home office; today I worked from home.
7:30 I plan my day and review my task list. I've been mentoring from 8:00 to 9:00 am and in a meeting for a new project from 10:00 to 11:00 am, all this via Skype. Worked on some planning and reviewing some things until 1:00 pm.
1:30 to 2:30 Had a light lunch and took an afternoon nap. I had another coffee (yes, I am addicted!) and spent some time studying and developing a new course. I'll have a brief call in 20 minutes from now; then I'll spend some time wrapping up the day and sending out the last e-mails.
4:30 to 5:00 I unplug. During my afternoon I will focus on other activities: reading for the pleasure of doing it, probably creative writing, spending time with someone I love cooking and listening to good music. I will eventually go to bed between 11 and 12 pm.
