SO…..you wanna be a digital nomad, butttttttt:
I could keep listing all the things that could possibly come up when you contemplate actually going for something that’s been your dream for awhile now, but I think you’re intimately aware of them all.
INSTEAD, let’s do two things:
Sike. It didn’t happen like that at all, and Erin is giving us the real skinny on how she realized she wanted to do this, how she pushed through resistance to stick to the goal and how she actually is working through structuring her life (hint: it’s a work in progress).
“When it came to where I was professionally, my heart and my gut had different opinions (than my mind) on what I should be doing.” – Erin Greenawald, on how she realized she wanted a change
If you’ve wanted to make a leap like this- or really trying anything new like a new entrepreneurial venture, for example, this show is a MUST. LISTEN. I’m going to include some of the gems here but to get the full raw beauty of this show, you gotta listen.
Anyway, I’m going to hand it over to your earbuds now so you can grab the episode on your way into work. Maybe, just maybe, it will plant a further seed in you to take the smallest ittiest bittiest next step in your quest to be a digital nomad of some sort.
And don’t forget- we’re on a lot of other platforms now for the Podcast, in case you don’t have iTunes. You can check ‘em out below.
