MBP #34 – How a Professional Hobo Works and Travels the World since 2006

nora-dunn-professional-hobo-finalWhen I started Bargaineering in 2005, the words “location independent lifestyle” had not yet been put together to mean what it does today. Lifestyle design and Tim Ferriss’ Four Hour Workweek had not yet been published (April 2007). The term digital nomad had no meaning.

In 2006, Nora Dunn sold all of her stuff, including her business, and decided that she was meant to do something else. She was meant to travel the world and would go about designing her life so that she could do so financially sustainably.

In this podcast, we talk about how she built up a freelance writing business while traveling the world (especially the struggles of working while traveling), plus a few incredible stories along the way like a 30 day train ride from Lisbon, Spain to Saigon, Vietnam (now known as Ho Chi Minh City).

    What a fascinating ‘about’ page she has. She’s packed A LOT of life into her last eight years. It’s fun to read about someone who’s living life on their own terms.

      Yeah it’s crazy how much she’s done, how much she’s seen, etc. in “just” 8 years. Once you start living life it’s easy to forget that eight years is a lot of time… you could fit in two+ college degrees in eight years. 🙂
