Hey,

The main thing you have to learn how to do is to work online. This can be anything from marketing, design, virtual assistant, websites, video editing etc - basically, anything that will allow you to work and earn money from your laptop.

When you can do that you can then work and travel at the same time because all you'll need is your laptop to make money.

I recommend reading a great book called The Suitcase Entrepreneur which details everything about how to become a digital nomad. I recently did a book review on it on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3frH-4n0bg&t=2s

Hope that helps and good luck!

Hi Ankit,

If you'd like to learn how to be a software engineer, and you'd like to go back to Thailand for 2 months, you should check out CodingNomads (http://codingnomads.co).

We teach aspiring software engineers everything from core software engineering to database management to infrastructure (AWS). We also cover Git/Github, CLI, Jira and more.

If you're interested to learn more just let me know!

All the best,
Ryan

Another great resource for getting into coding and software design is CodeSchool. They offer great courses and do tasters for free. they are a part of a larger group called pluralsight that do more detailed and targeted courses, but codeschool is a good start. I learned the basics of html / css in about a month and it's enough for me to edit code i can source cheaply from sights like Fiverr. I can then edit them into template to create whatever I want and re-purpose it.

Check out CodeSchool here: https://www.codeschool.com/account

Hope this helps...

I think this is the first question everyone asks. But one to which there are still no answers. So if you don't have a specialised skill which allows you to offer a better service at a better price, I doubt it is practical to aspire to become a nomad. They are essentially freelancers whom I assume have to work damned hard so they can waste what they earn travelling to places where others don't have the privilege and are still working nine to five, sometimes seven days a week.

The question you need to ask is what value do you add to the mix and then focus on that. It is no good trying to compete if a client can get what they are looking for at a better price. But if there is added value in what you do, it then becomes a question of making sure that you get seen to be adding value to the market.

A challenge and learning curve we all face.
