1. You are a keynote speaker at Digital Nomad Week in December. Tell us a little about DNW, why you decided to get involved, and what you will be talking about.

DNW reached out to me in early 2021 to be one of the keynote speakers for their festival this year, and I could not say no! As a fulltime nomad myself who has been bouncing around while managing multiple businesses for over 7-years, it simply made sense. 

The title of my talk is: How Digital Nomads Rewrote the Rules for Work Around the World. I will be discussing how digital nomads became prominent thought-leaders in a COVID-19 world as a group of individuals who had already made virtual working work for themselves.

2. How does DNW rate on the nomad conference/festival calendar in your opinion in terms of size/importance?

I consider it to be one of the most important of the year – the roster of speakers they have gathered pretty much includes every single digital nomad driving conversation today. I am very excited to be part of it!

3. Reading your About page on your website is quite breathtaking. You seem to be doing about 400 jobs at the same time. How many hours a day do you work? And do you sleep? 

I do sleep – sort of! I am a bad sleeper. I have been able to function on 5-hours of sleep or so since I was little- my mind never turns off. 

I do admit I am bad at turning down opportunities – it’s what it’s all about to me. I work anywhere from 20-60 hours per week – depends the season! I do have a team now that includes my best friend and about 5 other independent contractors. I am NOT doing this alone anymore.

4. Your story and success are an inspiration to those who want to break the normal work cycle. What are the main pieces of advice you give to people wanting to make the leap but afraid to do so. 

I would say to them: you only get one life. It’s not meant to be miserable. Take a risk – it pays off. And it’s not even a risk …….
