This new generation of virtual assistants have a where-the-wind-takes-me approach, and have discovered lucrative ways to earn a living from a boat, a plane – or anywhere in the world with wifi and an outlet.

What is a Digital Nomad?

A digital nomad isn’t just a Gen-Y Tiktok’er living and working off the grid in Costa Rica. These days, the term also includes moms, dads, and anyone else who isn’t bound by the confines of a static office. Whether you work from your laptop in a Paris cafe, or from your local Starbucks, you can consider yourself a Digital Nomad – forging his or her own way to a fun and lucrative career.

Best Jobs for Virtual Nomads

Okay, let’s be for-real. Some jobs are NOT going to work for those seeking the lifestyle of a wanderlust’er – for instance, anything that requires meeting with a client that can’t be handled via Microsoft Teams, or other jobs that require hands-on interactions such as those who work in the healthcare field. But for all others, the possibilities are endless. Virtual assistant nomads are finding success in careers that focus creativity, business and technology.

Bloggers, Writers, Content Specialists

It’s true – there are bloggers out there earning a 5 figure income per MONTH. We aren’t about to say that is a realistic possibility to everyone, but it is certainly possible. But what we do know is that you’ll never earn a penny until you get started blogging. It’s simple and requires nothing more than a website and your consistent effort. You can even use an easy, ready-to-go website builder to get your new venture off the ground within an hour or less! Once you get your website blog, you’ll need to determine your niche.
