Work and Travel

What skills do you need to be a digital nomad

Well, I believe freelance work can be done for almost every profession, but you do need a good pair of brains and some business skills like listed above. Although offices and factories usually do not employ freelance contractors a lot, it is an upcoming thing to rent yourself out to a company and then work for them. This flexibility allows the company to terminate contracts when business is slow or hire more freelancers when business is high.

Not every freelance job allows you to travel the world while working, but when thinking creatively you might be more flexible than you think and with a good sales pitch maybe you can convince more companies than expected.

So jobs that make good freelance jobs:

  • photographer, musician, teacher
  • journalist, writer, copywriter, novelist
  • agricultural work, farm work, housekeeping, chauffeur
  • maintenance, repair, construction work, building, plumbing, welding
  • social work, healthcare, nursing, personal trainer, coach, therapist
  • software developer, IT business, web developer, SEO specialist
  • marketing and communication, social media expert, international event planner
  • consultant, financial adviser, personal planners
  • administration, translation, virtual assistant, auditing

Actually the list is endless!

I have knows nurses that work as freelance nurses in hospitals around the world, on temporary work permits, I once met a bicycle repairman who worked his way around the globe fixing bicycles when he needed money.

Yoga teachers that teach temporary yoga classes from the best locations in the world and trainers that give classes to earn travel money. Guest speakers on a topic that have themselves invited by companies to inspire local workers.

Teachers can work online or apply for international schools or private people to tutor kids in a native language.

Project managers that advice building projects in faraway countries or social workers and city planners.

You have to have self-knowledge

It is important that you know your skillset. It is the skills that make you an expert, it is your creativity that gives you a chance to work and travel. The amount of experience builds a resume or portfolio and the willpower to make it a success and escape that save the environment of regular paychecks and annual bonuses and let’s not forget the obligated 2 weeks summer break.

Do you have the determination to put yourself out there as a product? Can you show a prospect that they miss out on something exclusive if they do not hire your expertise for that one particular job?

If you can do that, you will make an excellent freelancer!
