If you have an online business, you can work from anywhere! But should you use that freedom to travel perpetually – known as being a digital nomad – or would you rather establish a “home base”? In today’s episode I describe the pros and cons of each lifestyle and talk about which one I’ve chosen… for the moment anyway  🙂


  • Five downsides to living the dream life of constant travel (5:08)
  • How to get “the best of both worlds” (10:10)
  • Avoiding the temptations of the dominant American cultural scripts (13:03)
  • Where I spent the first few years of my business (16:53)
  • The factors behind our decision about where to be right now (19:01)


  • Thanks so much for including me in this. It’s definitely an interesting trend for longer term digital nomads and quite a natural transition I think. Both lifestyles are amazing at the right times in your life. Look forward to listening in to learn more about your story.

    • Thanks Natalie! I agree that it tends to be a natural transition. Who knows what the future will bring… the key is staying in touch with our desires and being open to making changes / taking action to create whichever lifestyle we want 🙂
