Wade Sellers about his digital nomad journey
In the first episode of DND Goes Behind The Scenes, we are interviewing digital nomad Wade Sellers. He left the states only 5 months ago to start his digital nomad lifestyle journey in Bali. Working remote isn’t a new concept for Wade because he has been cafe hopping back in Florida. He asked his boss ‘How remote is remote?’ and created his own opportunity by working remotely from Bali. He is enjoying the digital nomad lifestyle a lot but we asked Wade to chat about the #notsosexystuff.
What person changed your life and inspired you to live the digital nomad lifestyle?
Wade learned about the digital nomad lifestyle where you can work and travel via YouTubers Christian creator of YouTube Channel LostLeBlanc and digital nomad Chris the Freelancer.
Aside from his remote job, Wade is also working on his passion projects. He created video content on Instagram and has been playing around with funny video edits. Soon, his IGTV channel Apple Picking will be launched so we will see more of Nomad Wade!
What is main struggle during the week?
Figuring out your routines is super important. This especially goes for when you are working on multiple things at the same time. Back home in Florida Wade had a pretty solid routine. He finds it hard though to find balance in the digital nomad lifestyle because there is simply so much cool stuff. Finding balance and creating good routines is an on-going process but after 5 months he finally gets the hang of it.
Wade likes to start the day with structure and starts his morning routine always the night before. Three main elements of his morning routine are:
🙏🏻 Gratitude practice
📝 Accomplishment journal
✔️ Use a task organizer
