Listen To My Story
Today, in the very first episode of The Remote Podcast, I share with you the story of why I quit my high-paying job to become a digital nomad and why I started The Remote Lifestyle and The Remote Podcast. You can listen to it below:
Introducing The Remote Podcast
The Remote Podcast is for anyone looking to leave their office jobs in order to join the location independent movement.
The podcast features in-depth and unfiltered one-on-one interviews with digital nomads. It gives you a behind-the-scenes look at what a location independent lifestyle is really like. Living a remote lifestyle is a choice.
Through listening to each guest’s story, you’ll see that there are infinite ways in which you can live and work remotely. All you need is a computer, internet access, and plenty of hard work!
Where the Idea Came From
Since I have transitioned to remote work, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting other people who are living and working remotely. The coolest thing I learn from these conversations is that there is no one way of pursuing this lifestyle.
Everyone does it in their own way. It could be based on their own interests, their own circumstances in life, and what not. And this is the key takeaway I want to share with other people.
I asked myself one day: what if I can take all of these wonderful conversations that I’m having with other remote workers – conversations that I’m learning so much from – and package them in a way where I can share it with millions of people all over the world?
To Show People That They’re Not Alone
When I was just starting out, I was reading about people having this type of lifestyle, but I didn’t personally know anyone who was doing it. So it felt so scary. It felt like I was doing something that wasn’t correct or accepted by the people around me. I was scared to take the jump.
The Remote Podcast is the resource that I wish I had access to when I was making all the decisions and mulling over whether I should make this jump or not.
I want you to be able to have access to the stories and the experiences of remote workers all over the world doing all types of jobs and living all types of lifestyles.
How Each Episode Will Be Structured
So here’s how each episode will work.
- I’ll start out by giving you an overview of what we are going to talk about and our guest.
- Then we’ll jump straight into the interview… or I wouldn’t even call it an interview… it would be more like a conversation between me and our guest.
- And afterward, I’ll do a recap and I’ll be sure to list out all the resources we talked about. I’ll also include transcription of the entire conversation so you can refer to it in text form if that’s easier for you.
