You’ll find a lot of information on this website focusing on the finances needed to achieve financial independence and enjoy a mobile pretirement. After all, it’s in our name. But what about the realities of life as a Digital Nomad? One of the most common questions we hear is, “So what’s the daily grind of a Wanderer actually like?”
As full-timers, digital nomads, day traders, or whatever people call us, our daily life is…
different than the average 9-5 working person’s. We don’t have to “go to work.” Yet we’re not retired or on vacation either. We’re working every day to generate income. Trading for a living takes discipline, focus, skill, continuing education, and a commitment to staying up-to-date with current market news and events. We cover all of that here in the form of stock trading lessons, a basic trading course for subscribers, global market updates, and the application of various trading strategies and techniques.
We’re not a traditional group of traders. We’re wanderers. We know just how overwhelming it is to comprehend the logistics surrounding a digital nomad’s life. The transition from a 9-5 life to that of a financially independent wanderer is a big one. So even if you’re not ready to pull the plug quite yet, we’re here for you when you are. Plus, if you’re like us (Pat & Lorin), you’ll want to read every resource you can about the digital nomad, wandering life long before you are ready to do it yourself. That’s what this section is all about.
