After 2015, we started to hear more about the “Digital Nomadism” term and interested in its meaning.
What is this Digital Nomadism?
As the name suggests, it is a lifestyle that enables you to earn money by working from anywhere that connects you to the digital world by the internet. Most people who believe in this concept and arrange their work in that way, or who impose the concept of remote working on their employers (even though there are not suitable conditions in the first place), have already set out on this pleasant road.
In order to be a Digital Nomad, you first need to know yourself very well. Many people leave their homes, offices, living standards, and even their loved ones behind and retreat a little to their own crust, often creating favorable conditions for business and friendship opportunities by getting to know different cultures, and planning towards the beauties of this world once visited. In this planning, I can state that you should research the society of the country you are going to, its traditions, climate structure, food culture, and social/political/ economic situations in detail. You should not go to a country that you think you can’t adapt to even if you want to see it.
Another issue is to prepare yourself to make the transition to minimal living conditions. Since you will change places at regular intervals, you should not take your valuable belongings and unnecessary clothes/items that will take up space in your luggage. This will bring you great benefits both financially and spiritually, and you will get used to this lightness over time 🙂
In this way of working, you also need to have a patient and investigative personality. As much as you can meet people from different sectors and be aware of business opportunities will help you plan financially. Instead of doing one job as a full time, doing at least two part-time jobs will keep you afloat in any job loss.
Well, you have decided on this life change, what will accompany you on your journey? Most digital nomads take their trip with a backpack.
What should be the items that every digital nomad’s packing list should have?
- Passport, Flight Ticket, print out of the address you will stay, and other documents
- Some cash money, more than 2 credit cards open to international use
- A light laptop
- A smartphone for overseas use
- Backup phone
- Charging cable
- A little first aid kit including medicines, band-aids, bandages, ointment, cotton, etc.
- Foldable, reusable, light water bottle like SuCo
- Sleeping bag
Most people go on this journey alone. We wish you to adapt quickly to the places you go, create an efficient business and friendship environment and take care of yourself.
