Becoming a traveling entrepreneur

I have always loved traveling. As a child I loved dreaming about one day traveling to faraway places.

The thing is, you can keep dreaming about it and take a 3 week vacation each year. But that didn’t feel like enough for me. I always came back with an unsatisfied feeling that I didn’t travel enough and kept dreaming about traveling for a longer period. Until January 2013, on my journey thru Cuba something clicked and I decided to investigate how to travel and sustain a living on the road. In February I booked my flight, 8 months from that moment, with the thought that that should be enough time to arrange everything. And now 2 months before leaving I am totally excited about my plan. A lot has been arranged but still I need to do a few things in the process of becoming a traveling entrepreneur.

Gathering information

I have been gathering information about traveling and entrepreneurship on the road for almost 6 month now. I have talked to a lot of fulltime travelers online! They are really nice and very eager to help you with information or to tell you where to get it. Thanks to them I now own a favorites list in explorer with I don’t know how many links to check sometime soon and lots of documents to read sometime.  The important ones I already read and applied for the things needed. Besides getting to know a lot of travelers I also learned a lot of new words like wwoofing, digitalnomads, wanderlust, etc. it’s cool to know there are more people out there doing what I am about to do. It is going to be an adventure and it will ask a lot of improvising from me. But it’s worth it, seeing lot of places and meeting new people. A dream come true. I have been living towards this moment for months and every month getting a step closer by arranging something. It’s funny I had months preparing and getting used to the idea, but most people although I told them months ago are now getting aroused did you arrange this and that. How are you going to do that.

Relax… I have been preparing for months and if I am not prepared for something I will have to deal with it on the road… Years of practice in life changes :-).

WordPress, anybody can do that!

WordPress, the site construction tool, is the invention of the century! Anybody with (a little bit of) perseverance and frustration tolerance can build a simple website. The only question is: Is it worth the frustration building the website yourself? Is it really cheaper?

Sign

That depends ….

  • Do you have any assignments with near deadlines?
  • Do you have enough time?
  • Are you frustration resistant?
  • Do you have patience?
  • Do you have a little feeling for how computer programs work?
  • Do you like solving puzzles?
  • Are you eager to learn new technical skills?
  • Do you know exactly what kind of WordPress website you want?
  • Are you going for a simple website?

Do it! But in all other cases ….. Stick with your field of expertise and let someone with knowledge of WordPress built it for you.

The side effects of life as a Nomad

In February I decided that I wanted to travel full time. But the big question then was how do you become one? Where should you start searching for information? Are there others who do this? My first stop was the library for the book “What is your excuse?” From Esther Jacobs and google to people who travel full time and how they pay for that life. So I started contacting some of them for tips. A whole new world opened up for me by talking / emailing Diana & Steve from Working Wonderfully, Esther Jacobs, Valerie Parisius and Dan Andrews. They gave me many tips and contacts to explore further. With these contacts and information came more contacts and more information. For an infobate like me, this was heavenly! Now two weeks before departure, I start to taste my digital nomad lifestyle. For this I started a major cleaning. This is a handy side effect of becoming a digital nomad. As a result, I also became a minimalist and with cleaning, space was created not only because of the things that went away, but also in my mind to think. So I would like to share the 10 tips with you that I found useful to achieve less stuff! And 12 tips to make room in your head to think.Who or what inspires you?

Celebrate with a blog

Celebrate

Why ?

Everyone is blogging. Inke blogs about vulnerability and everyday things and Shantie on social issues. Well the last one is more opinion sharing than a blog , but hey what’s the difference? Both write regularly. So now you are going to proclaim your opinion about everything on your website that has nothing to do with your business? No, I will save that for my twitter :-). In my blog I will share tips, especially from the programs from which my company derives its existence. It will consists of small tips and tricks which can make your life using these programs more bearable.

What can you expect ?

Regular short blogs as this one about the following programs: Google Analytics, Hootsuite, Excel,  Access, WordPress and SPSS. And yes occasionally on business like this one. The blogs will contain mostly basic tips that everyone can use, especially people who are just starting to us one of these programs. Think along the lines of blogs by Else. Brilliant idea all those Legos ! No, I ‘m not going to work with Lego that is not original anymore. And also not  with Barbie dolls, because then Asha and Atria will be after me for gender bias.

It will be more along the lines of sharing links to other explaining something very well and references where you can find anything. And yes sometimes pieces written by myself to explain options in programs. So think more along the lines of the way Kitty blogs. Oh wait, but now I am creating very high expectations. I mean just the way she links to others in her blog and not her way of blogging. That’s unique and no one can copy that!

Then how?

Like with my company Databeet in my own cocky way! I am a data analysis entrepreneur and can help you learn to use the programs in a better way for your analysis.
