Join me as we talk about:
[00:00] Welcome Jean Marie DiGiovanna!
[02:33] Jean Marie does not consider herself a digital nomad – then how does she define her lifestyle?
[06:05] Jean Marie talks about the transition from having a home to being home-free. The challenge was as much mindset shifts as it was downsizing her things.
[08:56] Jean Marie talks about one unexpected benefit of her lifestyle and one mindset shift that people have a hard time with.
[11:17] What has been Jean Marie’s favorite locations to date?
[12:45] A mobile lifestyle takes some mind shifts (and its not for everyone) but finding your best way to work might be one of the best things you can do in this lifestyle. You also need to make sure your own perceptions aren’t holding you back from being successful.
18:52] We talk about the practicalities of a mobile lifestyle: is it safe? how do you balance life so you don’t always feel like you’re on vacation? Is it super expensive to live this way? Travel tips?
[24:27] Jean Marie’s Favorite Quote “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. – Howard Thurman”
