Digital Nomad Amy Scott figured out 14 years ago that her normal 9-to-5 job and normal life wasn’t for her. She was an Editor in San Francisco for a travel guide publishing company commuting into the city and squeezing out her own travel experiences around her vacation time.
That wasn’t good enough for her so she started the process of planning her escape but it took her longer than expected to save up what she needed. 2 ½ years actually of planning, saving and most importantly keeping her dream secret from her employer until she was ready launch. The day finally came, she left her job and started traveling but her nest-egg that she felt was enough to get her going was just $12,000.
She is now a veteran at living the location independent lifestyle and her life now reads like the travel guide books that she was once editing. But what’s interesting is that she’s got the same career as an Editor but just in a different industry.
She figured out the formula to create her career around her lifestyle versus restricting her lifestyle around her career.
In this episode we discuss…
Quitting her 9-to-5 with only $12,00o to start her digital nomad life.
Crying at the curb at the airport when her friends dropped her off for her first flight out.
Relying on her existing skills as a copy editor to recreate her career and be location independent.
Her first years of non-stop travel.
Transitioning to ‘slow travel’ and staying in one place for months at a time.
My conversation with Amy Scott of Nomadtopia is coming up next.
Why she now helps coach people through the transition of 9-to-5 to digital nomad.
