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.
These people have taught me so much—and, just like they did with me, I hope to pass my learnings to the next person.
