They say when you're not happy with a certain situation, change it or leave it. That's what I did: I was unhappy with my job, so I left it and created my own business while traveling the world. Here is how I did and how you can do it too.
A lot of people find themselves unsatisfied with there current jobs or careers. At some point, things have to change in order to get better. But what if you don't know *what* it is that has to change because you actually don't even know what you want to do for a living? Well, I would say then it's time to go on a date with your inner self and find out what your true passion is. Once you've done that, all you have to do is find a way to translate your passion into a career. And trust me, that's the easy part.

It really helps putting things into perspective.

However, before going all-in we wanted to start an experiment to see if we could make the digital nomad lifestyle work for us. Here is how the experiment turned out.
