HOW DO WE FUND OUR LIFESTYLE OF TRAVEL AND FINANCIAL FREEDOM?
I wanted to be a Digital Nomad before I even knew there was a name for it. The idea of travelling the world whenever I wanted, for as long as I wanted AND making money while I do it, really appealed to me.
I have friends and family all over the world, so to be able to spend a month with my brother in Zimbabwe, or a few weeks with my sisters in Wales, or two months with my son in Tenerife became very important to me.
But, the paid vacation time in Canada is only 2 weeks. You can’t really go anywhere in 2 weeks. So I knew that I had to do something differently.
I applied for some online positions, but none of them felt right. Something in my soul was still pulling. Writing, travel, and adventures, that’s what I wanted, but I couldn’t figure out how to get paid to do it.
So I dabbled in blogging (like this one) and drop shipping, but I needed to make more money than what these two were bringing in without working long hours. You can’t have travel and adventures if you’re working all the time – even in paradise.
Fast forward another couple of years, and my husband’s health took a dive. He developed Atrial Fibrillation, and so began a year of doctors, hospitals and tests to get him back to good health. He was off work for 9 months and his health insurance paid out a quarter of his regular salary, which put us into financial hardship. That was my line in the sand moment.
Fortunately, my husband recovered, but that year made me realize that life is way too precious and way too short to be living like this.
I realized how much I love mentoring and supporting people to follow their dreams. I came across a platform that taught me how to turn my passions into a business. And now I’m on a mission to share it with as many people as I can. Because life gets to be amazing. You deserve nothing less.
