9 Things I Learned from Digital Nomad Entrepreneurs at the Nomad Summit

This week, I had the opportunity to attend the Nomad Summit in Chiang Mai! It was an incredible opportunity where I learned so much and met amazing people. Here are some of my favorite things that I learned at the Nomad Summit! Check out the Nomad Summit website for the full talks!

  1. No matter what your background is, you can be successful. How you grew up or how bad your grades were doesn’t matter. You can be a successful digital nomad.

  2. Work incredibly hard at something you love. No explanation needed.

  3. Be different. Find something that nobody else is offering and do that.

  4. You don’t have to be an expert at everything. Find ways around it to make your work look like it was done by an expert. (,,

  5. If your design is good, more people will think your product will be good…But you still must have good content.

  6. Making money and traveling the world doesn’t necessarily mean you will be happy. There is much more to happiness.  Traveling and money help though 😉

  7. Make money so that you can give money back to make a positive change. Once your financial needs are met, using money to help others is one of the best things you could do with it.

  8. Surround yourself with successful people. It’s extremely inspiring and will probably make you want to change the world.nomad_summit_networking_ciaofelicia

  9. Shamelessly do what makes you happy. “YOLO.”

    Pin me to inspire others!

Hi! I’m Felicia. I am a 23 year old traveler originally from Huntington Beach, CA and currently living in Auckland, New Zealand. I graduated from California State University, Fullerton in May 2016. After graduation, I didn't have a "dream career" in mind, so I followed my heart and have been finding ways to make money as I travel the world ever since! I plan to travel and learn more about the world than I ever did in school. Traveling is a passion of mine. I love seeing the beauty of our world through architecture, nature, and people. I love connecting with people without being able to speak the same language. I love being in an unfamiliar place alone and stepping outside of my comfort zone. But I don’t know what I want to do yet. I plan to travel the world for as long as possible instead of "adulting." Until I figure it out, will you go on this adventure with me?

  1. The point about happiness is so true! People think our lives are perfect (well they’re pretty good) but what a lot of people don’t realise is that full-time travel comes with many sacrifices. Great post 🙂

  2. I wish I could be able to travel all the time, although I can see how and why it can sometimes be physically and emotionally tiring. Also, the following point, in which you talk about helping others, makes me think that you`re a great person. Never lose this amazing spirit! <3
