3 steps i'd follow to become a digital nomad (again)

I’ve been working online since 2016.

I took a bit of a “burn the bridges” approach, and straight up quit my job without really having freelance clients.

I wouldn’t necessarily do that again.

This is what I do if I could do it again:

  1. Pick a skill
  2. Get your first clients
  3. Expand out


Step 1

Pick a “classic” skill that’s in demand and learn it during your free time.

You do not need to spend 100’s of hours to be better than most people at things like:

  • Writing emails
  • Setting up websites and landing pages
  • Designing graphics for social media

Yes, some of these are a little “saturated”, but there’s a reason there are still thousands of people making a lot of money doing these things.

Beacuse they’re neeed.

You just need to find a way to stand out.


Step 2

Getting your first clients is arguably the hardest part for most people.

What I’d do if I had to start again is:

Reach out to people in my CLOSE circle…friends, family, friends of friends, people I know at my gym/communities, etc

Offer to work for FREE.

You’re probably saying, “How can I work for free?”.

Well because you have no proof or real experience doing the thing you’re offering.

Reaching out to people know means they almost trust you a bit, they’re more likely to take a chance on you.

And all you’re looking for testimonials, building your portfolio, and real-work experience doing the thing.


Step 3

Start reaching out to people you don’t know.

Once you I have proof I can do the thing I’m saying I can do.

And I’ve gotten people results.

Then you can start to reach out to people you don’t know.

I’d first ask the people I’ve worked with if they know anyone else.

Then I’d STILL keep it quite local, reach out to businesses who might be able to help in my local area/city.

Again, you don’t have a ton of experience yet, and reaching out to people you have commonalities with creates trust when they don’t necessarily have a reason to trust you.



These three steps are “easy”, in theory.

But it still takes hard work and time.

Nothing good ever came easy.

That’s what I would do if I had to do it all again.
