I’ve been a digital nomad for more than 3 years now. It’s not an easy lifestyle. It’s spectacular, that’s true, it has this aura of freedom and joy, and, to a large extent, this aura is perfectly justified. But it’s also a very demanding lifestyle. It takes courage, persistence and a lot of hard work to afford such a lifestyle. You need courage because you will still be a little bit of a misfit (people are still asking me: “So, what exactly are you doing in those coffee shops? How do you work from there?”). You will need persistence because, at times, you will really feel drawn back to a normal, 9 to 5 routine, just because it’s so numbly comfortable. And you will need to work hard because that’s how you create beautiful things. Period.
During the last few months I worked on a book called “Being A Digital Nomad”. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will remember that I even started an Indiegogo fundraising campaign for this book. I raised $245 off of my $9000 target. It’s been more of an experiment, though, as I was already committed to finish this project. It was a nice experience, and, provided that my future projects will be on Indiegogo target, I will use the platform again.
As of today, Being A Digital Nomad, the book, is on its final, proofreading, stage. I estimate it will be available in about 24 to 48 hours. The digital version will cost $8.99 and the printed one will be $9.99. Just to give you a glimpse of what you can read, here’s the table of contents and the cover.
