In the past year I saw and read so many articles about becoming a digital nomad. Some of them are relevant and useful, others talk solely about the disadvantages, but most of them talk about the dream job and working in paradise. I really believe this is an amazing lifestyle, but because of all the media coverage, people started believing that it’s all honey and milk; that digital nomads are in a continuous holiday. Thus, everybody is asking how can these people afford it. They must have rich parents who help them.
Actually, most of the digital nomads are way past the age where they are being supported by parents. They had a few jobs, even leading positions, they gained experience, they know how it is to have a corporate job and decided that’s not for them anymore.
So… who are they?
Recently, I was on a transatlantic cruise ship with 100+ other digital nomads, where I had the chance to meet amazing people. I talked to them and I decided to share some of their stories with you.

Can you briefly tell us who are you and what do you do for a living?
I spent my days doing what I love. As a digital nomad I travel the work while I am doing awesome work. I sell websites to freelancers, I manage a team that makes them and I teach them how to get new clients by blogging. Click if you would like to read more about me (in Dutch).
