You mentioned when joining the FB group that you feel you would not be able to take advantage of what I'm teaching in the live masterclass this Thursday for a long time. After reading through your entire post I actually think just the opposite, what I'll be covering is exactly the kind of stuff you need to learn asap.

It will be applicable to apply slowly (eg. while you still work another job) or it can work faster if you put 100% of your time into it.

You've got the most important part down which is the will to learn new things. I'll shoot you a PM on FB too :)

I literally joined this site a few hours ago, scrolled through some posts but couldn't find anything completely relevant to me so decided to make my own topic in hopes someone might have some advice to share.

I've recently been doing a lot of thinking about where I see myself in the future, and what I would like to be doing right now. I think what it all boils down to is that I love the idea of travelling and having lots of free time, and I'm happy to live in cheaper parts of the world to achieve this. I don't have enough money to be self sufficient without working, so I need to find a way of generating an ongoing income stream, preferably one that over time could become a passive or near passive income stream.

I currently have a good job, and I've just bought a house which is currently being built. I plan on living there for a while and renting the spare rooms out to knock the mortgage off sooner. If I was to move out at a later stage I know that having tenants in place would cover the majority of the repayments, so if I was to leave I wouldn't sell it, and it would be paid off by the time I'm ready to retire and I could then live off the rental income if I was in a country where the cost of living was cheaper than it is here.

Here's my problem. I'm not especially tech savvy, and as yet don't have any marketable online skills that I'm aware of. My work experience thus far has consisted of a lot of basic sales jobs in my 20's, I managed a small finance company in my early 30's, managed an weighbridge after that, and currently work as a call centre manager. I'm 36 right now. I'm great with numbers and for two years in my 20's I supported myself through online poker and continue that as a hobby, but due to variance I wouldn't feel comfortable taking a leap where I actually relied on poker earnings, even though it is likely I'd make some sort of small profit on the side whether online or in casinos. I've explained some of my skills to better assist anyone reading this to suggest what direction I could take things.

The good news (for me), is that I am still young, and prepared to learn new skills that are going to increase my chance of living the kind of life that I want to live in the future. All I want to do is create options, so that if I decide to walk away and be a Digital Nomad in the future I can, and if I later decide that staying where I am is the right option I won't have lost anything anyway as I will have gained some extra skills that can increase my market value in other job roles, and probably an extra income stream if I have the spare time to apply myself.

I'm thinking of going for a bachelors degree next year, and if anyone can suggest a course that might suit me I would love to listen, and if anyone thinks that's not necessary and has an alternative idea I'd be interested in hearing it too. The reason I'd like to make it a bachelors degree rather than learning a skill without a degree, is that it then further opens up avenues to support myself like teaching English as a second language overseas, I don't plan on going down that route, but this project is all about opening doors for my future so may as well open as many as possible simultaneously. I think anything that could lead me to making $2,000/$2,500USD a month or more without working more than about 30 hours a week at hours that suit me from my computer and we're having a real conversation. Earning less would be too restrictive and working more would not really achieve what I have in mind. I feel like there are so many directions I could take this but I just need some advice and guidance to get me started on the right path. Time is not really a factor, long term sustainability while maintaining a chilled out lifestyle is my main priority.

Most digital nomads work in countries on tourist visas. Although not technically legal is can be very difficult to get the correct paperwork filed as a digital nomad.

- How does taxation work as a US citizen working remotely in a foreign country, both for US and Honduran taxes?

Most digital nomads are only paying taxes in their home country, despite if the work is done in a foreign country.

- My company supplies my computer and equipment due to security and legal reasons. Is there a great way to ensure I have access to new equipment or shipping services if the need arises?

You need to do research into what mail options are available in the area you're going. Most likely the only option would be a private courier like UPS. Keep in mind this might be pricy. You need to look into shipping laws for the area.

- High speed, reliable internet access is a must. Should I bank on Roatan having these services, or would I be better off getting a plug in network card for my computer?

I would see if you can find a digital nomad group on Facebook for your specific area, country or continent and ask other people living and working there what the best wifi solution is :)

Hope this helps!

I am working on arranging my job and my life to work remotely from Roatan, Honduras. I may potentially move to other locations in the next few years but as of now that will be my first remote adventure. I have traditionally worked in an office before and am definitely anxious about some of the tasks and requirements ahead of me. I will most likely be able to keep my current job (or work at the same company) which is awesome. There are a few main topics that I am not quite sure of. Any direction on these is greatly appreciated!

- Are there any special immigrant / visa / tax laws I should be aware of prior to moving? Any forms / agencies I need to contact to verify my status?
- How does taxation work as a US citizen working remotely in a foreign country, both for US and Honduran taxes?
- My company supplies my computer and equipment due to security and legal reasons. Is there a great way to ensure I have access to new equipment or shipping services if the need arises?
- High speed, reliable internet access is a must. Should I bank on Roatan having these services, or would I be better off getting a plug in network card for my computer?

I am sure I am missing a few things - any and all advice is very welcome. Thanks in advance! :)

I would highly recommend a refurbished macbook Pro (with warranty) if you want the maximum bang for you buck in terms for performance and being ideal for digital nomadism. You can checkout Upwork.com to see if there's any remote work available there for your niche. Let me know what you think about my suggestions :)

My advice would be to decide on some specific cities, research their cost of living, visa costs, etc, and plan from there.

Something you could become quite proficient at very quickly depending on the type of person you are is becoming a virtual assistant. This could be a great way to get income remotely, learn some new skills along the way, and if you're really a digital nomad then you can take advantage of living somewhere with a low cost of living and work less. Then with your free time, develop skill and experience with developing if that's the route you're still interested in going.

Is there anyway to go from zero experience in programming to working remotely? It sounds unreasonable, but I believe in lateral options. Though I see none, I'm not so informed.

Are there any career fields one can begin remotely? I don't know why I'm so stuck on a "career"....

However I am not against looking at the odd jobs route, there are many ways to skin a cat.

There are many English teaching opportunities that do require TEFL or bachelors. (although those are helpful). The coding bootcamps can be effective but must be combined with remote work platform skills. Eg. you need to learn how to find remote work on remote work platforms which I'm not sure the coding bootcamps have a big focus on this.

Have you thought about using Workaway or a similar volunteer site to travel for free while you learn new things and figure out what you might be interested in?

I am currently traveling in Eastern Europe ( Turkey currently ) off of savings.

I am interested in creating income remotely to continue traveling. I have explored information on the popular options, but the advice is conflicting.

I am 19 years old with no marketable skills ( yikes). I have looked into coding boot camps and a TEFL degree. I have seen many say that your chances of creating income through a few months of intensive coding practice is unrealistic. Also, most jobs requiring a TEFL also require a bachelor in English.

How can I create income to continue traveling? I am concerned many options may be unrealistic, or more concerned with parting me from my money. What do you think?

Please feel free also to email suggestions to
zachfalls99@gmail.com

Thanks for your time, and nice to meet everyone!
