1.) Why did you decide to begin a nomadic life and what does it mean to you?
Nothing else makes sense. I started as a freelance translator. It gave me a lot of time to pursue other hobbies or personal development.
2.) How do you earn an income now?
I have 2 companies: In one we are selling custom made products and second is speculating on financial markets. Both are simple and mostly automated, so again it gives me a lot of time for further personal development.
3.) How many hours do you work at an average on a usual day?
30 minutes a day in the financial sector and 3-4 hours a day in sales
4.) What is your approximate travel budget for a year? Any tips on how to lower it?
I don’t travel anymore for a sake of traveling. Whenever I go people have the same problems and joys only in a different tint, so to speak. I travel to new places to try to teach mindfulness and meditation. When I traveled a lot in the past I was using last minute or other promotions.
5.) What would you consider to be one of the best tools for becoming a digital nomad?
Anything which helps a person to overcome cognitive biases which limit our potential. Most people don’t know about it and they cannot achieve peak performance.
6.) Do you have any advice for those starting a digital nomad life?
Find something you love to do, learn how to do it well and learn how to market yourself. On the beginning, you need to work more than in the usual job, but then if you automate and market well, you should work less than in the usual job.
7.) How long have you been traveling and where have you been? Do you have a favorite place in the world?
I was in USA, Indonesia, Korea, Estonia and other many countries in Europe. My favorite place is where I can help people.
8.) What is your travel frequency? How often do you change the place you stay and do you have a home base?
I have a home base in Czechia/Poland. I travel once a year for a month usually.
9.) How do you manage the distance to family and friends? Do you miss having an established home and a wardrobe without weight limit?
I don’t really see it as a problem to be far from family and friends for some time. Even in my base, I don’t have much of a wardrobe.
10.) Could you imagine keeping up the digital nomad lifestyle for the rest of your life?
With time I plan to travel more. I plan to take an example of my friend with similar interests, who travel the whole year around the world and is 75. He is also teaching meditation/mindfulness.
