Ever wonder about some of the challenges of being a digital nomad? In this video, I’d like to talk about just that. Watch or read on below for some great insight!
I’m recording this video for you from Huacachina, Peru, which is an oasis in the desert and it’s absolutely amazing, as you can see! One of the upsides of being a digital nomad is traveling to cool places, but there’s stuff that can really hold you back too, and some of it’s obvious and some is less obvious.
Challenge #1: It can be difficult to stay in touch with friends and family on the road. Wi-Fi can be iffy when you travel abroad and that can make it really difficult.
Challenge #2: Making friends when you’re staying in hostels is a little easier, but it’s hard to do work there. If you get yourself an Airbnb or stay in a hotel, it means that the onus is on you to go out and meet people. It can be tricky abroad if you don’t speak the language or if you’re shy.
Challenge #3: Traveling hijinks. Stuff going wrong that you could never have planned for. Did you know, for example, to be allowed entry into Peru you need to have proof of exit at the time you are getting onto your flight? I learned that one the hard way… And finally,
Challenge #4: Work-life balance. When you’re doing this, you may be used to traveling for fun and when you’re doing this as a lifestyle, this is your life, so you have to find a good balance between seeing the cool things that there are to see in the world and doing the work that you’ve got to get done. So those are the quick 4 tips that I wanted to share with you about that.
