My name is Blass, and I'm an aspiring digital nomad currently living in Brooklyn, New York. I grew up in locales as different as Taiwan, New Mexico, and west Tennessee, and so the nomadic spirit has always been a part of me. Since graduating college, I've worked everything from retail, administrative support, and most recently, high end luxury sales at top-grossing designer furniture showrooms. I'm looking to get into remote work, and am considering drop shipping and online english teaching/tutoring. I lived in Taiwan and studied Chinese history, and I have experience working as an aide at an elementary school through college. I'm looking to transition to a digital lifestyle, and I'd love to hear from you guys about a few things:
-How do you negotiate health insurance/health concerns when you freelance and even travel from country to country?
-Where/how do you file taxes? Do you even need to?
-Where do you look for employment? Are there companies/forums where I could go to for potential opportunities?
-How do you assess costs of living for places you've never been or for employment situations that change regularly?
-In your search for remote work, did you pursue work in a specific field that you already had experience in or did you make a career change?
I'd love to chat with you guys, either on here or via instagram. Find me on instagram here, and send me a message; it's the easiest way to get ahold of me. https://www.instagram.com/blasshollingsworth/
