The Unemployable life is all about being a digital nomad, maybe cruising around the country in a van, trusty laptop at your side, right? Well, for the last 20 years, I can’t say that’s been my experience at all.
So, let’s fix that.
For the next year, the family and I will be living abroad. This fall in France, a stop in Japan, then the winter in Australia (it’ll be summer there), then a hop over to New Zealand before (maybe) heading back to Europe for late spring / early summer.
In reality, this trip is more about the kids (and spending time with them) than some digital nomad fantasy. But the freedom to work from anywhere certainly makes the whole thing possible.
Tune in for more detail. And also find out what the future of the podcast is while I’m on this adventure.
