The location independent community is growing exponentially. Remote work is now possible anywhere as long as you have a great internet connection and affordable accommodations. The advent of internet certainly plays a big role in this phenomena. Another reason is the opening of many digital nomad shared working spaces around the world.

Visiting other countries while working online is now a reality. Of course, this is not for everyone. Some have family responsibilities while others may not like the nomadic lifestyle. But for those who wish to discover other cultures, it’s certainly a viable option.

There are many ways to earn online. Many companies offer remote work opportunities. Making money online is not that difficult. Of course, discipline is required in order to succeed. You also need to figure out what it is you can do to earn a living. There are many categories of online work you can do. You could for example:

Open an online store, work as a virtual assistant, work as a programmer, do some audio to text transcriptions, create sub-titles for YouTube videos, offer your services as a translator or trade cryptos like yours truly. There are many possibilities to earn money. Of course, you need to start working online before you start traveling, unless you have some savings you can depend on.

Another cool thing about remote work is the fact that you can meet other remote workers. This could possibly lead to joining an online project or company startup. The possibilities are endless. Of course, relationships can be difficult as a digital nomad. Some will do this for a few months, while others might enjoy this lifestyle for years. Some will travel slower and others faster. It’s different for everyone.
