I'm a Software Developer and I've thought many, many times in becoming a digital nomad and for the same reason like you. My wife and I loved to travel and we would like to do it as often as possible and as young as possible. The maximum we have achieved is to live in three different countries so far. But with "traditional" jobs.

But honestly, I don't know where to start with man :-D Any suggestions and recommendations, from your experience, for all of us who would like to have a life like that but we have no idea where to start :-)

 

Good q. I've been remote working for years, and been really successful. It isn't for everyone, and I tend to put in more hours than perhaps in the office (but I have no commute!)

I think getting building a reputation for good work, and then working to line up remote friendly work - be it a full time gig, or putting together a mix of work. I also try to use traveling to my advantage- offer to speak at meetups as you travel... so you can promote the company/your work/you as an integral part of your travel.

Then comes the scary part. Setting a deadline, and going. Putting everything in storage, renting the house and booking the flights :)
