What is a Digital Nomad?

Digital Nomads are people who use technology to work remotely, while conducting their lifestyle in a nomadic manner.

They are a sub-section of ‘work-from-home’ entrepreneurs who run either offer services over the internet (freelance writers, photographers, web designers, graphic designers) or run businesses which can be managed over the internet (SaaS websites, membership websites, affiliate marketers, or sellers of digital assets such as ebooks, podcasts, or online courses).

Digital Nomads often work from home, coffee shops, public libraries, or from any WiFi connected location or mobile data enabled device. They can be nomadic nationally, or internationally, and often face a raft of benefits and challenges that often are not immediately apparent.

Understanding local laws, data charges, and health insurance policies are typical challenges faced by a digital nomad. The main benefit is being paid is a Western currency, while living in a cheap location such as Vietnam, Thailand, or Bali.
