Hello,

My name is Valery, I was born and raised in Mexico City but spent the last
3 years in Argentina working for Disney as a Television Producer and now
I'm living in Toronto, Canada.

I've been doing some research on what new paths I could follow and I've
decided I want to become a Digital Nomad but don't know where to start.

I want to have a creative job that I can do remotely but my experience
doesn't include that. What should be my first step?

Please help!

Best,
Valery

Hey Valery. Sounds great that you already have a job that you can do remotely, but what do you mean by "but my experience
doesn't include that"?

Let me know and I can help point you in the right direction! :)

Hi Jessica!

I'm actually not working right now, I left the job I had in Argentina and now I'm searching for new opportunities.

What I meant is that I haven't done any remote work so I don't know how to start. What are the usual remote positions companies look for? Should I study something else? Get any certification?

Thank you!

Just wondering what people think about having money saved to start with. Did you have a lot of back-up funds when you started your journey?
