When Vera first started working remotely, it was just in order to be able to stay in Tenerife. That was until she met other digital nomads and felt inspired to try out the location-independent lifestyle for herself. So far she loves it and does not regret making that step.
Vera works as a Virtual Assistant. She makes money for her travels solely by freelancing for different clients. Although she is currently working on a few own projects as well, her story shows that you don’t necessarily have to run your own online business in order to live the life of a digital nomad.
At first, the thought of traveling solo scared Vera, but she did it anyway and hasn’t looked back since. She still refers to Tenerife as a 2nd home and can imagine having a home base here again in the future, but for now she is enjoying the location-independent lifestyle. We’re especially happy to have her with us as a digital nomad trainer and tell her story on the island where everything started. If you’re still on the fence of whether or not to try out the digital nomad life for yourself, you should definitely come to our meet up to listen to Vera tell her story. She might inspire you like other digital nomads inspired her.
