| | Hey hey dude,
It’s Francis here.
Happy Monday to ya :)
Over the last few days, I’ve traversed my way through Athens, Greece for a wedding and currently settled in a flat on some hills in Mykonos as of today. It’s been pretty chill.
It’s my first trip in a few months and, to be honest, I had to shake off some of the cobwebs and get back in the groove. But once I did, it felt amazing.
Luckily, after killing a few hours in the airport this morning, I stumbled upon some pretty awesome topics I think you should check out, especially if you currently have a remote work situation.
Here’s what’s in this edition of The Nomad Newsletter:
- “Zoom Towns” are a boomin’ — Discover this short (but growing list) of gorgeous European countries paying people to move there and work remotely.
- The Community Of Nomad Creators — Check out this vibrant company dedicated to helping 9 to 5ers discover their nomadic skill and launch their online business. (they got some awesome free resources, too, if you’re keen)
- Bulgaria is lit? — Learn about how this chill little mountain in the middle of Europe is becoming a Nomad Hotspot.
- How I Earn $8K+ Per Month While Only Working 15 Hours Per Week — Grab your notebooks, folks. Meet Zulie. She’s a Medium writer makin' green while writing about whatever the F she wants.
...alrighty, let’s not waste any more time.
I want to dive right into it.
I hope you enjoy it.
Ridiculously Gorgeous & Fun Countries Are Ethically “Bribing”
People To Move There And Work Remotely
The digital nomad dream life just keeps getting easier to fulfill.
From unforgettable and picturesque towns in Spain to the beer-flowing cities in Ireland, even up in crisps and clear mountain tops of Switzerland — people are legit getting paid $$ by these countries to move there and set up shop.
With the help of the rise of freelance work, the creator economy, and COVID’s nudge towards preference for remote work, countries all over the world are now offering attractive incentives to entice online business owners and renovators to call their streets home.

Still Not Nomadic?
Learn From These Dudes Who Are Passionate With Giving People The Nomad Blueprint
There are a lot of business coaches out there in the world. (mostly on social media)
And they’re all set out promising you $10k months, a new Lambo, and a life on Instagram that’ll make your 88th-grade bully jealous of your new flex-God status. But when was the last time you met coaches who just want you to see the world?
That’s what you get with the homies from Zero To Travel.
I had a sick time as a guest on the Zero To Travel Podcast, but I was in awe of just how big of an impact they make on people’s lives.
I wish I knew about these guys years ago when I first started my journey.
===>But hey, it’s not too late for you.
Is This Little Bulgarian Town The “Bali” of The Balkans?
When it comes to hitting up digital nomad hotspots, most people think of the usuals. Bali. Chiang Mai. Medellin...and yeah, those are cool.
But tucked up in the Balkans, right in the middle of seemingly nowhere-ville Bulgaria is a town of only 12,000 that’s quickly becoming a haven for nomads looking for a change from the typical nomad destination.
If you like mountains, snow, legally living in Europe, and sexy af tax rates…
===>Then you should consider this Bulgarian bungalow as your new nomad address.
Freelance Writer May Have “Cheated” The System By Making $8k Per Month While Working 8 Hours Per Week (Not me)
The days of being a starving writer are long gone.
Writers are making hella bank nowadays. So if you’re stuck thinking writing is just a job for wannabe poets, beatniks, and your cousin stuck working on his weirdo sci-fi graphic novel for the last 7 years — you’re in for a rude awakening.
I personally know a few dozen content and copywriters making it rain cash money each month writing for clients and themselves.
One of those people is Zulie Rane.
She wrote a kickass article on Medium breaking down how she makes more money than some medical professionals while keeping her free time intact.
====>Check out her story here.
I hope these articles help you kickoff a solid week and get some juices flowing about destinations, work opportunities, and processes on how to maximize your time and get paid more.
I also plan on creating a couple of new PDFs on all things digital nomadism, namely: top 2021 destinations for digital nomads, best freelance jobs, and a blueprint on how to get your first freelance client.
If you’re interested…
...let me know by replying back to this email.
I’d love to know your thoughts.
Alrighty, thanks a lot for reading, I hope you enjoyed it.
