TMBA522: The Digital Nomad Lie 1

We’ve seen a lot of conversations recently in the location independent lifestyle space about something we like to call “The Digital Nomad Lie”. The general concept is that being location independent is not everything that it’s cracked up to be, and that the idea that you can have it all while sipping coconuts on the beach is simply a myth.

It’s not surprising then that we’ve seen a rise in blogs and think pieces by digital nomads that are exhausted from travel and yearning to settle down. But why are people feeling this way? At the heart of it, there may be many misconceptions and mistakes that we can make in the way that we think about travel.

We’ve invited our good friend and esteemed author Kyla Gardner on to the show this week to share some of her experiences living a location independent lifestyle, her biggest travel mistakes, and whether the promise of the digital nomad lifestyle is fact or fiction.
