The People Who Have Influenced Me In Digital Nomadism
I have been interested in information technology vagabondage (a slick alternative to digital nomad, huh? 😂) for a while now.
These people have a lot to do with my progress:
The Dutch trailblazer of digital nomadism is a serial entrepreneur and most famously, the creator of NomadList and RemoteOK. Pieter's relentless work to promote the "freedom from the office" lifestyle had a massive impact on me.
His book "Make" showed me a radically different approach to building startups.
Through his podcast, Become Nomad, an Israeli indie entrepreneur, and world roamer, Eli showed me a more spiritual, gentle side of traveling. For me, he has a unique philosophy on:
the time required to spend in a new city to feel grounded
the approach to choosing a city for a better work/life balance
the importance of disconnecting
Even though I don't always see eye to eye with Johnny, he played a significant role in my understanding of the world of remote workers and indie business creators. He was one of the pioneers of geo-arbitrage while living on the dirt cheap in Thailand 🇹🇭 and doing business with his native USA.
By attending Johnny's Nomad Summit in Chiang Mai, I made a lot of valuable, long-lasting connections. His business and investment insights educated me on how to make my money work for me.
These people have taught me so much—and, just like they did with me, I hope to pass my learnings to the next person.
