If you’re reading this, you’ve probably heard about digital nomads. Maybe you’re a little jealous that a Facebook friend is living the life near a beach, or you’ve just learned that a blogger you love is making more money than you are.

Keep reading if you’ve said one of these things in the last week:

  • “I kind of feel stuck in life”
  • “I feel like I’m living vicariously through others”
  • “I can’t wait until Friday” (or “I wish it weren’t Monday!”)
  • “I wish I could travel more”

Here are the seven steps to becoming a digital nomad:

Step 1: know yourself and what you want
Step 2: clarify your desires and acknowledge limitations
Step 3: get affairs in order
Step 4: gear up and slim down
Step 5: the big move (from ‘old home’ to ‘new home’)
Step 6: get connected and settle in
Step 7: start enjoying your new life

Steps 1 through 4 are the hardest, but are the necessary prep to make steps 5 through 7 happen.

Who are you?

I’m Chris Backe (rhymes with hockey), and I blog about travel and life abroad at

I started my life abroad in 2008, taught English for years, and have made money while living abroad ever since. I’ve taught English to Koreans from 5 to 65. I’ve published some awesome travel guides. I met the love of my life (whom I’ve been traveling the world with ever since).  I’ve met a ton of awesome people. I said ‘screw you’ to a nine-to-five lifestyle, starting getting up when I wanted, and started working for myself.

How much can we cover in one hour?

Quite a bit. After you book for the first time, I’ll ask you to fill out a short questionnaire. Once we connect on Skype, we’ll get to 2-3 of your most pertinent questions first, then continue with where you are on your journey to becoming a digital nomad.

As one session comes to a close, we’ll confirm an appointment for the next session if one is desired. There’s never any lock-in or obligation.

Why should I pay for advice when there's tons of it online?

Because time is money.

Because answers from five years ago aren’t always that helpful.

Because an answer written by a twentysomething isn’t as useful to a fiftysomething.

Because it’s difficult to know which answers are worth following.

Because trying to figure it out by yourself can take dozens, if not hundreds of hours.

Because having someone answer specific questions is super-helpful!
