What is a Digital Nomad?

What is a Digital Nomad?

In this solo episode, Kristin clarifies the common myths, misconceptions, and possibilities around digital nomadism, location independence, and remote work.


In this solo episode, Kristin clarifies the common myths, misconceptions, and possibilities around digital nomadism, location independence, and remote work, related to:
* Required tech skills
* Quitting your job
* Traveling and cost of travel
* Freelancing
* Passive income
* Job titles
* Entrepreneurship
* Digital nomad “trendiness”

We also discuss:
* The various categories and types of remote workers.
* How to break through the perceived limitations of a location-independent lifestyle.
* How the self-imposed labels and stereotypes of “digital nomads” are unfounded and unnecessarily hold people back from going remote.

Digital nomadism is a dynamic, ever-evolving mindset. It’s not a fixed destination or identity. For all intents and purposes, it doesn’t matter what your job title is, how you support yourself, or where you fall along the digital nomad spectrum - we are all helping to define digital nomadism for ourselves. And that’s okay.
