Becoming a digital nomad:
What to do with your "stuff", part 1
So you're about to take your life permanently on the road as a digital nomad. What the heck do you do with all your stuff? In this video, I'd like to tell you about what I did…read on or watch below.
So when I decided to become a digital nomad, it wasn't my first experience moving abroad. Some years before, I had left Canada to move to Australia. I owned my own home, and I chose to rent it and put most of my possessions in a friend's basement. When I returned two or three years later, basically, I didn't know what was in the boxes anymore. I knew a few things but for the most part, it wasn't really needed. Honestly, you think your things are more important than they actually are.
I had this experience with England as a kid as well. We put all of our stuff in storage and when we came back three years later, I was like, “why did I think this was so important?” And honestly, you'll just have to deal with it on the other end.
Storage is expensive, and makes your life harder. So my tip for you is, be as ruthless as you can. If you're on the fence about whether to keep it, err on the side of getting rid of it.
That's it for today. If you're interested in me as a copywriter, I would love to tell you more about my process. Below is a link to my free connection calls. I love to learn about what you're working on and see if we're a good fit, so please don't hesitate to reach out.
Today I am filming this video from a beautiful lake in Bolivia and behind me are some wild flamingos which is pretty neat. So until next week, we'll talk to you then!
