How do I become a digital nomad?
Becoming a digital nomad involves a combination of planning, preparation, and adaptation. Key steps include securing remote work or creating a location-independent business, managing your finances (including taxes and insurance), choosing your destinations, and preparing for the logistical aspects of continuous travel.
How do I choose my next destination?
When choosing your next destination, consider factors such as the cost of living, internet reliability, community of digital nomads, climate, and cultural attractions. Resources like NomadTreneur provide insights and community feedback to help make your decision easier.
