For those who want an alternative ‘Place in the Sun’ – Not all who wander are lost

I have done and worked in many different things in my life, property, presenting, business and through that I hope I have evolved and understood peoples different needs and aspirations which certainly come to play as a consultant for our lovely house hunters on A Place in The Sun. But for those who perhaps have a more nomadic spirit there is an alternative. For a year of my life as a digital nomad I spent less money than I did in the UK and saw and experienced more wonder than I have in my entire life. The lovely thing is anyone can do it. It is a genuine alternative for those who have a little bit of adventure in their souls and are not yet ready to settle in one place abroad it is a fabulous way to travel the world!

Imagine a life where you were free to travel to far-flung exotic lands, swapping your armchair and the latest soap opera for a hammock and a vista of a turquoise ocean framed by white sands. Where your office became the shade of a palm tree and your biggest stress of the day was the horrifying trauma of whether to have a swim or a cocktail. Imagine that being your life forever.

In the land of lottery wins and dreams right? What if I told you there is a revolution afoot? That there are tens of thousands of people living that life, right now. Basking in the sun of financial freedom. Not hippies, not students on their gap year, not multi-millionaires. But people just like you and me; families, people of all ages and all backgrounds! Gone is the era of being tied to a job you hate and going on bite sized holidays that are never quite long enough. Being an entrepreneur is not difficult anymore. In fact it is the easiest thing I have ever done.

How do they do it? It’s simple, they do the same thing as I did. They used the alchemy of the internet to turn their passions into money! Before you get put off, I’m not an IT graduate or an internet geek and if you asked me to build a website I wouldn’t know where to start but I set up a business online 4 years ago with £500. The business grew very quickly and I have been fortunate enough to travel the world and now can run my business from any country I wish.

I have met some wonderful and fascinating people on my journey who are also ‘digital nomads’ sometimes known as location independent professionals, mobile bohemians or ‘Mobos’. People who have had the courage to follow their dreams and live a life free of the tedium of routine swap their terraced houses for beach huts and have the freedom to work anywhere in the world. I believe anyone can make money online and anyone can have the experience of living if they so wish a perpetual holiday. In this blog you will meet some incredibly aspirational people who are part of the escape the rat race revolution. My wish is that you will be inspired to try it yourself too. Go on what have you got to lose? Welcome to the world of the digital nomad. ;)
