This may seem obvious, but ff you don’t have a solid remote gig, you probably won’t stay a digital nomad for very long.
We all love the fantasy of storming out of the office forever and hitting the road, but the reality is that you will still have bills to pay.
If you're going full digital nomad, you’ll need a steady income to afford gas for your car, wireless data to connect your devices to the internet, and maybe even a generator to keep everything up and running. Digital nomadism is doable (even on a budget), but you’ll want to land a remote job first.
Remote work may not be as common as it was during the pandemic, which means you aren't likely to find something overnight. The most common jobs for remote workers usually revolve around some combination of social media and technology, and these aren’t typically entry-level jobs. That's something to bear in mind for job-seekers.
If you want to go remote with your current job, you’ll likely need a decent amount of experience and cache with a company before you can get the green light to take your work on the road.
In either case, you will want to have your job on lockdown before going remote.
