The American Dream Is Dead! It’s Now All About The Digital Dream [Ch. 1 of 4]

If you can make it online, you can make it anywhere.

These are the words I stand by when thinking about work/travel relations.

Simply because it is online work that allows you to tear down all boundaries, to let you be exactly where and when you want to be.

Nowadays, when talking about success, there is no American dream to fulfill.

Rather, it is about making a success online and living your dream, wherever you find it most pleasing for yourself.

Digital nomads know that!

Sidenote: These series will contain the following (if you wish to skip to a more preferable chapter for YOU, then go ahead and do that).

Although, in business – it’s the long road that counts, no cutting corners 🙂

And if you want to know what makes pursuing the digital dream your getaway to traveling the world without a worry in your mind, listen up!

Starting today, I will be posting a series of articles, dedicated to building a strong online work presence, that allows for complete travel freedom, while working from your computer.

Over the last 4 to 5 years, I have spent countless hours building an online business (different businesses actually) and learned exactly what it takes, to make the digital dream come true. And I want to share these things that I have learned with you, in a series of articles, looking at all aspects of working online. Meanwhile, I will also tell you more about myself.

By the way, I will not be asking you to buy anything in order to see what I want to tell you!

So what exactly is all of this about?

A journey like no other

When I first looked into the opportunity to earn some money from my computer while traveling, I was really excited.

Mostly because of the chance to travel without having to worry about going into work the next day.

The idea, that you can do work while sleeping by the pool somewhere in Malaysia, for example, blew my mind. (Actually I recently found a cool spot, check out below) 😀

And I can’t imagine living without the chance to enjoy exactly that, ever since.

For me, so far, this has been a journey like no other I have ever enjoyed. And as you might already know, I am ready to live it thru all again and take you with me.

First things first, however!

Why does all of this matter to you?

Just as I just said, it is a journey like no other. The extraordinary combination of travel freedom and a work environment you create for yourself is something words can’t describe.

And of course, I know for a fact that there are many people out there, who are looking for that extra push, that would get them going.

And I can tell you right now. If you put your boots on right now and decide, that you are going to make it happen, your life is about to change.

Just don’t get me wrong. This is no easy way to go!

It’s never easy. Forget about something just being given to you.

The best way to find out if you are made for something is to go for it! But…

…only do it if you know yourself, that you are ready to take on the risk.

I’ve seen one too many times someone saying that you don’t have to worry about anything and that you should just let it flow. I mean, it might work out for some of you, but for the most part, that is not the view I stand by.

Because if there is one thing you really need to know, is that this thing is not easy.

Making money is not easy and it doesn’t happen fast!

See, when it comes to pursuing my digital dream that would take me around the world and let me live wherever I want, it is all about thinking long-term. And making sure, that my business grows over time, instead of creating some quick income, and then bursting like a soap bubble.

Building a business that lasts

You probably want to know, what exactly I’ll be talking about in these series of articles.

Let me break it down for you.

When it comes to working online from any place in the world, there are two things you can do. Just like with any type of work, you can:

  • Work for someone else (in this case it would most likely mean working as a freelancer)
  • Build your own online business (which is what I have done and want to tell you about)

First of all, there’s nothing wrong with working as a freelancer. A lot of people are doing just that and traveling the world.

But ever since I got into making money online, I knew, it just wasn’t for me.

My decision was to build a business and use freelancers to create content while I could take care of other things. And of course, while I could spend more time exploring the amazing world we live in.

This is exactly what I look forward to telling you more about. My journey into the world which took place while I was finding my way in the jungles of online businesses.

The world is your office

However, beyond telling you all about the way I created my own online business, the many times I failed and specific situations I had to go thru, I want to tell you this:

If you take your time to put in the work, you can do it and create the kind of work environment, only a few of us will ever enjoy. I’m talking about the world we live in!

You see, once you take the chance to work online seriously, there really are no limits to what and where you can do…

…Ok, you do need at least some internet connection.

And I truly believe you can do.

So whatever it is that is now holding you back, I want to help you get rid of it and start your way into the world. Both the world we live in and the digital world.

Before we go forward I have to remind you. There are no set steps to take in order to make it all happen. However, I can lead you by an example, share ideas and my experience!

And this is exactly what I want you to pay more attention to.

If you do that, I have no doubt that by the end of this series of articles, you’ll already to have an idea of what to do or who knows maybe your business will already be launched.

Now, it is time to move on to the next chapter and take a look at online jobs, that are worth the hassle.
