Take the test to see if you are ready to become a digital nomad!
If you’re starting out, there are steps you can take to reveal whether becoming a digital nomad can work for you!
Book a flight to a different town within your country.
Get an Airbnb or hotel, pack your life into one carry-on and one luggage, and try living out of it for 2 weeks or a month.
Assess the pros and cons for yourself. Is the remote lifestyle truly for you?
Chris Backe offers step by step instructions to help you transition into a fully paid digital nomad in his book, “Becoming a Digital Nomad.”
