The digital nomad lifestyle is exciting, but you’re stepping into a lot of unknowns when you set off on your journey. How To Fail As A Digital Nomad is a guide on what NOT to do, so you can put all your fears to rest.
Will you be able to make enough money to live?
What if you don’t like the city or country you choose?
How will you meet people?
What if something bad happens?
What might go wrong?
Discover the 11 common mistakes I’ve seen digital nomads make, leaving them scraping to get by, begging their Facebook friends to pay for a ticket home, and facing the embarrassment of dismissive family and friends saying “I told you so”.
In 2 and a half years on the road, and 20+ cities across 9 countries I’ve met a lot of digital nomads. Some succeeding, some failing. The way to succeed is varied – many possibilities exist in the modern world to make money on the internet. The way to fail is much more defined, yet much less discussed. Several key mistakes are repeated. Are you making any of these dream-killing mistakes?
•Chasing an identity that will not be fulfilling
•Risking your life on a financial high-line with no safety net
•Thinking you can build a business on the road
•Getting scammed by your friendly neighbourhood digital nomad guru
•Finding yourself doing “digital slave labour” for less than a third world peasant earns
•Catching the disease of laziness because life became too easy
•Unable to recover from epic hedonistic indulgences
•Struggling with culture shock and adapting to a new life
•Travelling too much
•Being alone, lonely, and depressed
•Always looking for the city over the hill where the grass is going to be greener
Don’t be the person dragging your luggage through the airport in 6 months’ time, avoiding eye contact with anyone as you head back home to the soul-destroying office you worked so hard to get away from.
Fulfilling your dreams and living the digital nomad lifestyle is possible. It’s within your reach – just make sure you’re not sabotaging your success by making mistakes I’ve seen dozens of digital nomads make. Use this book as a reference, a checklist for what NOT to do.
