Nienke Nina’s digital nomad side hustles
Nienke Nina has been a digital nomad for over 5 years and has experimented with many side hustles. In 2022 she started a new project, the podcast you are listening to today and she wrote a book called Digital Nomads With Confidence. But those are not the only thing Nienke Nina has been working on because she also develops content marketing strategies for solopreneurs while having a full-time remote job. So you might wonder, how can she still enjoy her digital nomad lifestyle while maintaining all her income streams?
How digital nomads make money online
Many digital nomads are entrepreneurial in some shape or form. On the Digital Nomads Daily podcast, we often talk about how digital nomads make money online and luckily, our digital nomad guests don’t shy away from sharing this. After interviewing hundreds of digital nomads, we see 4 types of digital nomads defined by how they m making money online.
Digital nomad solopreneurs and freelancers
Before the pandemic, the vast majority of digital nomads made a living from service or product-based income. Think about the social media managers, video editors, website designers and virtual assistants. These people work with various people on multiple projects, and it can offer a lot of flexibility if you are successful.
Digital nomad entrepreneurs and business owners
This group is very similar to the one above, but the biggest difference is that as an entrepreneur/business owner, you are not working on your own but with a (small)team. Many digital nomads who start as freelancers pivot into an agency type of model once they start outsourcing their work. Like digital nomads Anne and Tiff who joined the podcast in 2022.
Digital nomad remote employees
It’s a popular option for people seeking security and stability in their day-to-day life through a fixed workplace and income. Remote work is becoming more popular and finding a fully remote job isn’t easy but not impossible. We discussed this with Michelle, who joined episode 53 where she shared must-Know resume tips to land a remote job.
A mix of everything
This is probably the most common and growing type of digital nomad. It’s not only much easier to start a side gig these days, more people realize that by putting all eggs in one basket, your employer also isn’t as secure. The recent layoffs also show that having a job isn’t the safest option after all.
