In the sixth episode of the Live Limitless podcast I chat with Nora Dunn from www.theprofessionalhobo.com.
Nora owned her own successful financial planning business in Toronto, Ontario before deciding she simply wanted more out of life. She wanted to experience the world and dive into new cultures. After all, life is short and we only get one shot at it. She took a giant leap and sold her business back in 2006 and has been traveling full-time (and working from the road) ever since.
Nora Dunn writes about how to travel full-time in a financially sustainable way, how to build a business from a laptop, how to find free accommodation, and so much more . Nora is also a regular contributor to Wisebread and co-wrote the book; 10,001 Ways to Live Large on a Small Budget. She is originally from Canada but is currently living it up on the small island of Grenada.
In this episode, we talk about:
- What made her want to sell her lucrative business,
- Some of the steps she took to begin her new life of travel and online business,
- Whether travel writing is a good option for aspiring digital nomads,
- Some of her biggest challenges with living an “unconventional” life,
- What she has learned since embarking on her new journey,
- and much more…
