Listen to the Interview
Hello, and welcome to The Remote Podcast Episode 21. This podcast is all about location independence, digital nomadism, and living life on your terms.
Each week we interview a new guest on the show, and this week I sat down with Ciarán Redmond, a digital marketer who has been living the Digital Nomad lifestyle since 2012. He’s one of the admins of the Digital Nomads Around the World Facebook Group that has over 32,000 members.
Ciarán is based in Denver, Colorado, and is preparing to embark on another globe-trekking adventure this year. When he first started traveling around the world, he said that he was more of a backpacker, doing whatever he can on the road to fund his lifestyle.
This time around, he’s determined to fund his lifestyle as a digital nomad working with multiple income streams through his online businesses.
