{ Episode 22 }

There are a lot of “I quit my job to travel the world” blogs out there.  And I absolutely love reading the stories about people who have the guts and vision to say “F*ck it… I’ll do my own thing.  I’ll make it work.”

This isn’t the reality for most of us.

I personally love when that direct deposit drops two weeks.  I mean LOVE it.  I enjoy a sense of security, being able to contribute to my family members needs, and knowing that I can treat myself to a massage whenever I feel like it.

Some of us are also saving for retirement, paying off student loans, or have other family members who depend on us.

I get it! There is a TON of privilege wrapped up in being able to just quit your job out of the blue.

You have to do what’s right for you! And beware…

There are digital nomads who will try and convince you to quit your job so they can sell you products and services.  It’s a sleazy part of the scene that needs to stop.

But that’s a rant for another time. { Email me or msg me on Twitter if you want to chat more about that. }

In this episode, I spoke to Tausha Cowan, creator of TheGlobeGetter.com, about this very thing.  How can you travel the world while maintaining a job at a nonremote company? How can you strategically use your vacation days to combine travel with work? Why are some reasons other folks don’t want to become full-time digital nomads?
