In recent years the term ‘digital nomad’ has become a buzzword for a new way of living and working – travelling the globe with a laptop and living in a succession of exotic countries, all the while running a business from the road.
Plenty of hype and myths have grown up around the subject. One suspects there may even be a few armchair nomads. But there are people out there walking (and flying) the walk – and Natalie Sisson is one of them.
I ‘met’ Natalie online several years ago via our blogs. Whenever I hear from her it’s rarely from the same place twice: Buenos Aires, Paris, Tokyo. Even cycling across Africa. The one constant is Natalie’s enthusiasm – for travel, entrepreneurship and life.
And I’ve seen her reputation and business grow, as she inspires and helps others take to the sky through her speaking, coaching, training and products. She shares her journey, and the lessons learned along the way, in her Amazon No.1 best selling book, The Suitcase Entrepreneur.
Last week we finally met up in person, over coffee in London. I took the opportunity to ask her some questions on your behalf, about the opportunities and pitfalls of life as a Suitcase Entrepreneur.
