My reasons why I do not want to be a Digital Nomad (anymore)

My reasons why I do not want to be a Digital Nomad (anymore)

it was a dream: travelling the world and working online, becoming a digital nomad. It sounded hip, free, it had the ring of a vagabond to it, it sounded daring, unadjusted, lonely, recluse and exclusive and just what I needed because of all those words. It became an emotion and I wanted it to be my lifestyle. But now, I removed the word: digital nomad” from my bio, I never use the hashtag anymore. And there are a few reasons…

Give up your Job to become a fulltime Traveller? I say no!

Give up your Job to become a fulltime Traveller? I say no!

Finally I’m not the only one anymore that preaches some realism into the full-time traveller or digital nomad lifestyle. The happy-ever-all-day-sunshine-model is slowly disappearing for a more down to earth view on the life of a wanderer. And I’m glad.

It is an old injury that remained after neglecting an earlier case of shoulder inflammation.

Life consists of ups and downs. Sometimes you may face a moment when you’re unable to feel happy. Maybe that is a good time to change the main concepts of your life for better.

Refocussing a Skill every Global Nomad should have

The most important skill, besides your online work abilities, that a global nomad needs to have is to be able to refocus. Every airport brings a new home and every seaport new faces and friends and every town new workspace. You are in constant movement and constant adjusting. And you are not only a nomad because you do not have a home to return to, you are also a nomad because you constantly shift in your mind. When you live…

How to set your Freelance Writing Rates

How to set your Freelance Writing Rates

I do not know about you, but I struggle my way through my hourly rate as a writer. Up till recently I charged either per word or per article and it didn’t cover the cost of research and such. All the administrative duties that come with running a business and all the unpaid hours e-mailing prospects just made it difficult to keep track with my bills. In the process of determining my rate I look around on the internet, freelance…
