A lot of people don’t feel terribly comfortable about starting an online business. Does that mean that they have to give up on the dream of being a digital nomad? Not at all! Actually, they can just as easily become digital nomads by doing a ‘regular job’ but taking it on the road with them. Try speaking to your boss and see if you can do your current job while you’re travelling. If they say no, then try speaking with your current boss about the possibility of doing a different role within the organization. It’s nerve-wracking but you’ll probably find they’re more amenable to the idea than you expect. It is the 21st century after all…
No? Then another option is to look for other jobs. Again, this can be ‘normal’ employment just like you’d normally look for. The only difference is that you’re going to look for jobs that specifically lend themselves to working online. That could mean working on web design (which of course can easily be done online in most cases), being a copywriter or anything else. Some jobs will even mention in the job description that they allow you to work from home (which means ‘from anywhere’ to us!). Always be sure to double check in the interview though.
Step 3: Create Your Own Online Business
Failing that, you can create your own online business. This is a relatively easy thing to do, you just need to provide a service online and find clients who are willing to pay for that service.
So you might be a writer, a web designer, or a consultant. Alternatively, you could sell photography, you could run a blog or a vlog, you could look for a company to sponsor you on social media or you could sell a digital product or an affiliate product. There are tons of different business models you can run easily online and this is something you shouldn’t be afraid to experiment with.
Note that this doesn’t mean you have to hand in your notice tomorrow (as much as you might like to). There’s no need to take unnecessary risk, so instead, why not try creating an online business in your spare time to test your model and then quitting your day job only once you have proven that this method works.
Step 4: Find Your Gear
Now you need to get your tools and gear for travel and working on the go. Whenever you go travelling for a long time, your travel gear is going to be an essential consideration. However, when you go travelling for a long time and you’re going to be working online – then it becomes even more important still!
So what does the budding internet entrepreneur need to take with them on their travels?
In terms of your general travel equipment, you’ll of course need a bag. Invest in a good bag because this is going to be a highly important tool for you in the future. You’re going to use this every single day to keep your things in and thus it needs to be light and convenient to carry, while also protecting your worldly possessions and keeping them safe. Look for something with plenty of pockets and that is going to be small enough stow under your seat on the plane (this will save you a TON of time).
It’s also important to think about your clothes and any necessary accessories. Choose clothes that are thin and light and that will wash easily. Choose clothes that don’t need ironing and then try to roll them into thin tubes for easy packing. A microfiber towel is a very thin and light towel that dries almost instantly and can be folded to fit into a pocket.
Other useful tools include a Kindle for reading on the move, a pair of noise-cancelling headphones (for sleeping on planes and drowning out background music while working).
For work meanwhile, you’re going to need a laptop that is thin and light while still being powerful enough to handle all the tasks you might throw at it and having a battery life that can go all day.
You’re also going to want a charging brick that you can use to top up your juice if your decide should run out, some kind of dongle (tethering will do) for internet on the move and a Bluetooth keyboard as a backup for working on a smartphone.
Step 5: Use Smart Tools and Apps
There are going to be a number of challenges that come from working online while moving from coffee shop to coffee shop. These involve issues involving different time regions and issues involving collaboration. Luckily, there are a ton of tools and sites out there that can help you to get by. Sign up to these before you head off and you can save yourself a lot of trouble on the go.
For example, Asana (www.asana.com) is a site that will make it much easier for you to collaborate on projects with clients and business partners. You can create tasks and from here, anyone can edit those tasks, view the latest updates and make comments. You can also add attachments.
Another useful tool is Slack (www.slack.com), which is essentially a group IM for colleagues and partners. You can use this to check in with your partners, to arrange meetings and just to stay in touch – it creates much more of a community feeling for your team even though you might be scattered around the globe.
Skype (www.skype.com) is what you will use to have those video conferences and this is a very well-known and appreciated tool. You can also use this as a way to stay in touch with loved ones and with friends. WhatsApp is also great for this, especially thanks for VoIP calls.
World Time Buddy (www.worldtimebuddy.com) is a site and app you can use to find the time in any given country and to make sure you’re actually meeting online at the right time!
Oh and check out #Nomads. This is an online community that is all about the camaraderie that you miss when you leave an office. You’ll find people to discuss the lifestyle with, friends and even dates! And of course you can sell and buy services here.
Step 6: Start Booking Your Trip
With that all up and running, you can have a ‘trial run’. Go on a small trip or even just spend a day in a coffee shop and check your business is really able to be run from a café or otherwise online.
Once you’ve proven it works you can set a date and start booking – this is the exciting part! To do that, you can again rely on a ton of different online tools, which include SkyScanner for finding cheap flights for example (www.skyscanner.com). This works by comparing lots of different flights and helping you to find the best ones. Meanwhile, AirBnB (www.airbnb.com) has quickly become one of the very best tools for finding cheap accommodation. Or how about free accommodation? For that, try Couchsurfing at www.couchsurfing.com.Other Details
