Corey Smith and Emily King have been living the modern nomad VanLife for the last 4 years. They’ve been living out of a 1987 Volkswagon Vanagon and their brand is WheresMyOfficeNow. In the VanLife and modern nomad world, they are rock star status with 131,000 Instagram followers and officially social media influencers.
Of course they didn’t always have this life, they created it one mile at a time. I’ve been curious about the constant traveling nomadic life, what are the unique challenges that they face, how do they make money and where do they take a shower.
Their journey began as them doing web development work from the road while they explored the US from coast to coast but they’ve transitioned into monetizing their journey through sponsors and YouTube views. They are documenting the other modern nomads that have chosen this life by creating mini-documentaries on these people living the vanlife. They now view this as their duty to help others by sharing what they’ve learned.
If you’ve ever fantasized about leaving the daily routine of life behind and living a life where you are truly following your dreams, this is how Emily and Corey did it and this is what they’ve learned so far.
