Hi! My name is Sharon, and I’m on a quest to become a financially independent digital nomad through building passive income. I went to the University of California, Berkeley and worked at Google for some time. Like most others, I had a 9-6 office job (as a marketing professional) but perhaps I didn’t have the tolerance level others had. It didn’t matter if I enjoyed my work or not – the fact that I was forced into sticking into a routine and confining myself inside 4 walls every day made me constantly wonder if there were another way to live.
I spent 2015 picking up freelancing positions and studying how to create passive income, and I started this blog to teach my learnings. By May of 2016, I had saved enough on the side to justify a year abroad, and I had a few active income positions lined up for when I traveled. So I quit my full-time job and embarked on my new journey abroad.
My next step will be to attain enough passive income to support my nomadic lifestyle. Creating passive income will buy me TIME and FREEDOM and allow me to do the things I love. In the future I hope to A) create a business that will help something I care about B) have the time to write music I’m proud of (I’m a singer/songwriter) and C) own several buy and hold properties around the world that I can visit. And I hope to inspire people who want to follow a similar path.
To clarify, many travelers are okay with spending all their savings on travel, but I’m not one of them. I love traveling. I believe in living life to my fullest potential by creating, making an impact, and experiencing the world. But I don’t want to spend money on travel and have to go back to a regular job to make the money back to do it over again. This never-ending cycle just isn’t for me.
Instead, I’m trying to create a lifestyle change – I plan to achieve financial independence first in order to live life the way I want to. I don’t want to be a slave to money, so I need to make money work for me. To do this, I will work towards reducing expenses, minimizing liabilities, and gaining assets.
I dream of a world of financial independence and personal freedom. Through Digital Nomad Quest, I will show you my progress and create numerous guides to teach you how you can do the same.
If you would like to escape the 9-5, come join me in my quest to become a passive-income-driven digital nomad!
