Hey Divi Nation we’re back this week with our last podcast to appear on this blog! What?! Yes, it’s true. After this week we’ll be transitioning the Divi Nation podcast and video show to a Facebook livestream on Thursday’s at 3pm EST. It will also be available after the livestream on YouTube and iTunes (or wherever you listen to podcasts). The full details for this change can be found below and in the show itself (at the end).
But that’s just an announcement. Today’s episode is a really fun one you definitely don’t want to miss. I got to interview Noëlle Steegs, a Divi powered digital nomad currently living and working from the South African wilderness.
Check it out!
Becoming a Divi Powered Digital Nomad with Noëlle Steegs– The Divi Nation Podcast, Episode 64
In this episode I interview Noëlle Steegs of noellesteegs.com.
Noëlle is a freelance web designer living the Digital Nomad lifestyle. In fact, when I caught up with her earlier this week she was out in the African bush using her iPad to join me on Skype.
Which, if you ask me, is pretty cool.
We’ve had some folks on the show before who have taken their life and businesses on the road in RV’s or vans or campers, but I don’t think we’ve ever talked to someone who lives out of a backpack all over the world. Which is a much more minimal and tricky way to work—but as you can imaging—very rewarding too.
During the course of our conversation Noëlle shares her WordPress and Divi story and then dives deep into a whole slew of tips for anyone interesting into becoming a digital nomad themselves.
All that and more in today’s episode of Divi Nation.
All Subscription Options:
Below are some of the recommendations and resources Noëlle suggested for anyone interested in becoming a digital nomad.
- Disorganization is the enemy. Organization is comfort.
- Quality backpack; carry on size for flights.
- Use compression bags to keep clothes small.
Must Have Tech
- Router meant for high device count and high speed with low bandwidth. Can do sim card and dsl.
- Divi! Of course.
Stuff to scavenge, buy, or borrow on location (instead of packing)
- Tables, chairs, and other office fixings.
- Take advantage of co-working spaces.
