Do you have that strong desire to sell everything you own and start traveling the world, while carrying your job with you, so you never have to stop? That was something I dreamed of since I was a teenager. Even though I didn’t know anything about being a digital nomad at the time, I knew I wasn’t cut for a conventional life.
