My name is Sharon, and I’m a young professional from the Bay Area, California who decided to leave the corporate world and venture into a life abroad. For 4 years I found myself existing instead of living. So in May of 2016 I quit my full-time job to become a digital nomad (you can read about it here).
It’s safe to say that only good things have come from this new life abroad. I spent about a year preparing for the journey, as you can see from my progress reports and crazy posts about fear and other things. And the fear still comes and goes, but taking the plunge has been the best thing to happen in my life.
I’ve found myself seeing amazing sights:
Learning from new people and making new friends:
And making my own schedules:
Those are just a FEW of the many reasons why being a digital nomad has positively changed my life. Of course this life isn’t meant for everyone, but if you’re considering it or had it in the back of your mind, the best way is to learn by doing. You can read about the digital nomad life all you want, but if you don’t execute you won’t really know what it’s like. Challenges and failures are expected, but that’s what makes us grow as people!
I created this site so that I can teach others how to live a life of location independence, and ultimately, financial independence, as well.
