Embarking on a digital nomad journey is an aspiration many harbor but few dare to actualize. Having gone on this journey ourselves, we’re here to share our story! We’ve transitioned from conventional paths and carved out a purpose-driven, nomadic business. This latest episode is a Savvy Talks interview with Kris Marie Dano. It offers a deep dive into our inspiring story and practical tips for those yearning for their own life of freedom.
Our nomadic tale began when the pandemic put a halt to our Peace Corps plans. But we didn’t let out disappointment take over (for too long 😉). Instead, we pivoted towards a lifestyle that allowed us to integrate our passion for travel with our entrepreneurial aspirations. This episode unfolds the challenges we faced and the triumphs we celebrated as we ventured into virtual assistance, web design, and ultimately coaching.
Our candid conversation with Kris Marie Dano peels back the layers of what it means to operate a business while trotting the globe. To be honest, it’s not a lifestyle for everyone. But through our shared experiences, we showcase the beauty of turning challenges into stepping stones for growth. We delve into the complexities of running a business as U.S. citizens abroad. We tackle handling taxes, nurturing family relationships across the miles, and more!
The episode illuminates the essence of slow travel. It’s a philosophy we’ve adopted to ensure we savor each cultural experience without sidelining our business. We emphasize the importance of prioritizing and scheduling leisure alongside work, advocating for setting firm client boundaries to maintain a harmonious work-life-travel balance.
For aspirant nomadic entrepreneurs, we provide invaluable startup tips. From traveling with children or pets to embracing minimalism, we cover a spectrum of considerations. We even discuss the often overlooked aspects of handling mail logistics. Our story is not merely a recount of our adventures. It serves as a clarion call to those who dream of a life unbound by geographical constraints! We urge listeners to take that “messy leap” into a life of boundless adventure and purposeful work.
Our journey is a powerful testament to the idea that couples can align their goals, tackle the practicalities of a nomadic lifestyle, and still carve out time for love and laughter. We prove that with the right mix of passion, adaptability, and commitment, thriving in a digital nomad lifestyle is more than just a far-fetched dream—it’s an attainable reality.
