travel-transformation

I’ve worked for and with dozens of companies around the world, and I never cease to be baffled by the diversity in professional standards I witness. For the few years that I was a foreign English language teacher, no two schools were ever alike in their expectations of how I should teach or my role in their hierarchy. Yet, each acted as though the way they did things was the way everyone did them, and that I should have automatically known all this.

As a freelancer, things weren’t much better. A company in India once hired me remotely to handle some of their brand strategy and messaging before being impressed enough with my work to invite me out to Delhi so we could upgrade our working relationship.

And that’s before your first cup of coffee.

Studies have shown that, in order to win at life, you need to win your morning. And with a little help from technology, mindfulness, and good food, you can start to take back your morning and your life.

If you’re anything like me, the only thing that’s keeping you from living a life of epic adventure is your account balance. I was once so poor that my bank reported ‘suspicious behaviour’ when my mother deposited a chunk of cash for my birthday! Apparently that was enough to trigger the alarm at Barclays.

Starting a career as a freelancer comes with few different skills that you have to develop. One of those skills is managing your time while working with more than just one client. I remember times when I had 8-10 clients I was working for. Sometimes it was hard to manage all the work I was doing for them. Also, I have to mention that I had to meet each one of my clients via Skype on a weekly basis.

How I Learned a New Skill While Working a Full Time Job and Advanced My Career Nomadship

This time last year, I had a full-time job. My work did consist of some interesting things from time to time, however, I knew it wouldn’t make me happy in the long run.
