Wondering if working while traveling for months at a time is possible? Learn from two digital nomads featured on this week's Grey Matters podcast who made it happen.
When we think about a job that allows you to travel, often we imagine a role in sales or event planning. Yet as technology has evolved – as connectivity becomes cheaper and computers become more portable – traveling while working spans across many more diverse roles and industries.
This episode of Grey Matters introduces us to two digital nomads – Amanda Robinson and Lisa Jenkins – who share their experiences of leaving the permanent and living the temporary, adventurous, sometimes arduous, often rewarding lifestyle of roaming the globe while earning a living. Digital nomads are becoming more common as wifi networks and technology make it easier to accomplish work while traveling. Steve catches up with two digital nomads – Amanda Robinson and Lisa Jenkins – who share their experiences and learnings from when they roamed the globe while wielding wifi wherever they could.
Listen for the points that prompt excitement and the pains that bring you pause as you consider if there might be a day in your future when you decide to try becoming a digital nomad.
