Ten Tips for the New Digital Nomad

How I thought it would go: quit my job, fly to another country, find a cute coffee shop and build my business from the road.  I'd work two days a week, creating content and meeting with clients.  The rest of my days would be spent laughing, eating with friends, sleeping in, and snuggling up on my week old niece.  

How it really went: quit my job, flew to another country, drank a ton of coffee, got easily distracted by all of the people and noises, and felt like I was totally neglecting my business.  I set aside two days a week to work, and then felt panicked that I wasn't spending enough time on my business.  

I scheduled clients (and even met with two of them face-to-face!!), and created just enough content for my new 5 Day Mindset Challenge  that I felt sorrrrrrrt of ok.  "Sleeping in" ended up being 8am PST, and most days I was awake anywhere from 5:30am-6:30am (stupid time zones.)  I missed calls from clients because I couldn't figure out the time zone conversion, the wifi sucked and dropped calls and internet connection.  I had to call one client back FOUR FREAKIN' TIMES during one session.   There were a lot of F bombs in that recorded call.  

And let's talk about the guilt!!!...
