How To Become A Digital Nomad (Get Skills Independent Of Location)
When you want to become a digital nomad worker, you have to get skills independent of location. If you have some skills of creating something by yourself, to find a remote job isn’t difficult for you wherever. But you may wonder that “what type of skill should I get?”. If you want to travel around the world or to live overseas country, I recommend you to get skills that are a digital marketing consultant, web or mobile application developer, designer or photographer, etc. Those jobs don’t depend on location, that’s why you can work wherever.
On the other hand, if you can’t create some product by yourself, definitely, your work style isn’t improved. Imagine that you become a full-time waitress, you may hear a customer’s order and bring their dishes to the table, and stand behind the counter. So you may realize that you don’t learn creative skills. If what you like is also what people want, It must become a job and you can definitely make a living.
Find What You Like, Start To Learn From Only Small Step
There are so many types of jobs for becoming a digital nomad, but you should focus on what you like because you can continue to advance, and get energies to improve those skills from them. I tell you about my experience when I become a photographer. Four years ago, I realized that I really liked to take photos which were someone’s happiness. I could maintain my motivation to become a photographer because I believed that I could do and I could make you happy. In addition, I kept learning how to take photographs that were especially a wedding, couple, family and so on. I remember my first step, I learned photography from YouTube when it wasn’t popular, but some photographer shared their skill online. Step by step, my skills were improving by myself. That’s why I recommend you to find what you like. You must keep doing them. If you don’t know what should you do, just challenge anything. You may realize what you should do. If the thing doesn’t fit you, you can change your next challenge.
Fortunately, we can find a lot of online resources to walk a small step. I itemize the list of websites below.
Don’t only learn, Let’s Try To Sell Your Own Skills
If you can keep learning things to do, It is so wonderful. But if you only learn the way to do, you definitely can’t make a living from your skill. As a second step, you should try to make someone happy by using what you are learning. You’d better get many good experiences from what you are learning, you may feel so difficult to do the first time, but keep doing. Gradually, you must feel easy to do and also your client feel more comfortable. The knowledge which you can get from experiences is better than reading books, watching YouTube.

If you could try to sell your skill, you just keep doing and keep your motivation to step the stairs. Don’t forget your ideal future. Exactly, you feel that the road is so narrow and steep, but you can do it unless you give up on walking your road. If you continue to make an effort, gradually your followers, subscribers, and clients increase. Also, my situation is the same as you, because my blog doesn’t have a number of articles yet.
