Even thinking about becoming a digital nomad girl can be tricky, scary and so stressful. But don’t worry! 😉 Many girls around the world have found their way and you will find too! So, tonight let’s talk about how to prepare for a digital nomad lifestyle and how to become one
1. Get a job that teaches you the skills you need.
If you are young and just starting out, get a job at a company that will teach you the relevant skills. Marketing agency, e-commerce, creative & design work, web development and design, blogging, writing, photography, training, or anything that you already love and will be useful in the future. This can be one of the most important steps on a way to become a digital nomad girl.
2. Start freelancing in your spare time.
It is a great way to get a taste of digital nomad lifestyle. You usually need a little money to start freelancing part-time, do not have to quit your current job, and you can pick any work or any activities you like and start building the foundation for the future.
3. Study at online university.
A lot of digital nomad girls study online while also traveling. It is a great way to get a degree, certificate, diploma or a new important skill while exploring and enjoying a completely different lifestyle. You can also combine online studies with freelance work. The opportunities here are endless, both free and paid!
4. Buy an existing online business.
This is a very quick way to become a digital nomad girl. While it is risky, buying an online business that already generates money is awesome to get you started almost immediately. But, of course, you need to have an experience and resources to do it.
5. Save money and learn from the community!
Why not move (at least for a few weeks) to a digital nomad community (Thailand, Bali, Spain, Brazil) and learn the skills from successful girls and guys 😉 while also saving a lot of money by living in a much (much!) cheaper place. It is also very inspiring and motivating to be around people just like you. You will learn much faster!
6. Negotiate remote hours with your boss.
If you spend most of the time working on your laptop, try to convince your boss to give you more freedom and flexibility. Start with several remote days or hours per week. Who knows, soon you might be able to start a digital nomad life without quitting your current job (YAY!)
7. Find a remote job online.
Fact! More and more companies are looking for remote workers and it is a huge trend. Start checking the freelance job boards, local websites and international job portals, we are sure you will find something you like.

8. Join a retreat for digital nomad girls.
Love yoga, surfing, hiking, kayaking or cooking? Seach for special long-term retreats and getaways according to your interests. This is a great way to relax, have a vacation, try something new and meet like-minded girls.
To conclude: just remember, it is very important to find that specific niche, that you love and that has the potential to earn you money in the long run. It is much easier emotionally to build your dream lifestyle working on the things you are passionate about.
