Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could work from anywhere and travel the world? There are now more jobs than ever where all you need is access to the internet. With more tools than ever available at your disposal, traveling the world as a Digital Nomad is now a reality

I designed this class specifically for people who want to travel the world but don’t know how to make the leap. Whether you’re an employee, freelancer, or entrepreneur, you’ll learn how to strategically transition your job into a location-independent career so you can live and grow on your own terms. You’ll learn the different ways of making money. you’ll learn how to explore the city as a local and make friends. You’ll even learn how to find love while traveling. 

This is NOT a course that will tell you to quit your job tomorrow and start traveling. 

That is a pipe dream and is not sustainable. 

This is a course that will teach you how to use your strengths and passions to transform your career while keeping a steady income. In addition to getting a condensed knowledge transfer from me, you’ll get access to dozens of interviews of real people who have managed to escaped their cubicles and are now living their dream of traveling their world while working.

I’ve been an active Digital Nomad for years. I’ve traveled to over 30 countries was selected from over 50,000 applicants to be a participant in Remote Year, a program that brings together successful Digital Nomads from all over the world so we can work and travel together for a year. 

I also have a passion for teaching. I’ve taught for Stanford University, UCLA, and General Assembly and have launched 3 online classes on Udemy with over 5,000 students enrolled from all over the world. You can tell how much value I’ve given my students by the hundreds of 5 star ratings and satisfied reviews left by my students. 

Learn how to turn your dream into reality.

Who is the target audience?
  • This is a course for people who want to strategically transition their careers into becoming a successful Digital Nomad. It is not a course for people who want to drop everything, quit your job overnight, and start traveling tomorrow.
