Before I became fully nomadic, I was running an adventure travel company in Brighton, UK and managing the digital marketing department. It was a brilliant job with a brilliant bunch of people, but after six years I was running out of steam. As a manager, all of the creative tasks needed to be delegated further along the line, so I was engaged far more with finance, forecasting and people management than ever before. My spirits were flagging. Over time, I had shifted away from doing the things that I love – writing, social media, thinking creatively and engaging with people. Suddenly, I realised that all my skills could travel. All I needed was a laptop. So that was it. I left in September 2013 and I’ve never looked back.
