Listen to the Interview


Nathan Morgan ProfileHello and welcome to The Remote Podcast Episode 24. 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 Nathan Morgan, an SEO specialist and remote worker who has been living in Chiang Mai for the past 3 months. He’s also a fellow participant on The Remote Trip program.

In this week’s episode, Nathan shares his story on becoming a digital nomad. He talks about his realization that he didn’t work for someone else, his experiences running his first business, and how he’s liking Chiang Mai so far.
