Sandra’s background is in UX design, and in the past three years, she has been freelancing and working in the co-living industry, applying the methodology of UX design to build real-life experiences in co-living spaces.
One of the biggest challenges that Sandra faced when she first started nomadding was the uncertainty that comes with this lifestyle. She also realized that while it’s exciting to travel and see new places, it’s not sustainable in the long run, and one needs to slow down to make this lifestyle work.
Nienke and Sandra talk about various daily digital nomad topics, including how to make friends and maintain friendships, how to build a community, and the challenges that come with this lifestyle. Sandra shares her personal experience with uncertainty and the need to surround oneself with people who are going to give support, inspiration, and make one feel seen and heard. The episode also covers different ways to seek support, such as coaching, mentorship, and therapy. You will learn about the importance of taking things slow, finding one’s tribe and the unexpected and beautiful experience of connecting with strangers in silence during a silent retreat.
Key Takeaways from Sandra’s interview about some of the golden nuggets of living the digital nomad lifestyle
Digital nomads master embracing uncertainty
One of the biggest challenges of being a digital nomad is dealing with the uncertainty that comes with the lifestyle. It’s important to learn how to handle uncertainty, especially regarding income, location, and relationships.
Why digital nomads should consider taking it slow
Taking it slow is crucial in building a career as a freelancer or business owner. Starting with a part-time remote job and slowly transitioning to freelancing is a more sustainable approach.
The power of finding your tribe
Surrounding yourself with a supportive network is fundamental to building a successful digital nomad lifestyle. It’s essential to find people who inspire and support you, whether it’s a coach, mentor, or group of like-minded individuals.
The digital nomad lifestyle is a constant self-development journey
Digital nomads are often into self-development, and it’s mandatory to stay sane and survive in this lifestyle. Trying different things like hypnotherapy, breath work, human design sessions, and silent retreats can help you better understand yourself
Flexing your curiosity muscle
Curiosity is a common personality trait among digital nomads, which makes them open-minded and willing to try new things. Curiosity isnt always sexy and easy but by staying open minded towards new beliefs, thoughts, cultures, foods, habits and looking at ways of life you will flexi your ‘‘curiousity muscle’’
Creating beautiful connections in silence
Participating in a silent retreat helped Sandra connect with strangers in a new way. Sharing vulnerably and authentically during a group discussion led to a deeper sense of connection.
All digital nomads master how to embrace change
Embracing change and reinventing yourself is essential to building a successful digital nomad lifestyle. Don’t be afraid to try new things, take risks, and learn as you go.
