Resources for Digital Nomads

Contents

As I write to you from Madrid, Spain, and checking things off my work to-do list, it occurred to me that I haven’t spent much time on this blog discussing one of the best perks of working remotely: being able to travel while working. If you take this perk to the extreme, you’re in a group of professionals called digital nomads.

People have been traveling for work since… well, forever. Hunting, gathering, sailing, exploring, sales…plenty of work-related activities have long involved leaving the home for a certain amount of time.

So what’s so special about being a digital nomad?

If you’re a digital nomad:

  • All you need to complete your work is a computer and internet connection
  • You can work from literally anywhere in the world — and you do!
  • Your livelihood doesn’t depend on you staying in just one place
  • You use various tools to communicate with your team and customers, like email, video chat, Slack, phone, or other tools
  • You have a flexible schedule

The biggest difference between being a digital nomad and traveling for work is that as a digital nomad YOU decide where you want to travel and for how long.

I don’t call myself a digital nomad because I tend to only work in my home office—I rarely even go to coffeeshops! But I would be remiss if I didn’t feature this workstyle here on the workplaceless blog.

While I do plan on adding more content geared towards digital nomads here on this site, I first want to share some fantastic resources for current or aspiring digital nomads.
