It’s Francis here.
Today, you got yourself the Monday edition of the good ol’ Nomad Newsletter.
I’m still hangin’ hard here in Greece and will continue to kick it for another week until I trek back to Budapest. As I mentioned a few emails ago, it’s my first trip in 3 months. It feels really good. But, the travel cobwebs are still on me and I’m still getting used to being out of the crib.
Had to deal with the dark arts with some bad gyros. COVID tests are a regular thing. And the sound of American accents again got me listenin’ to early 2000s country for some reason. All weird (but good) things, but hey, that’s the road, baby!
Had some pretty cool conversations and reads over the weekend, and I can’t wait to share what I got for you today.
Here’s what’s on the table:
🤙 The Raddest Digital Nomad Case Study — Meet this self-proclaimed Digital Bromad who jet-sets around the world coaching people to nomad life, all while selling hella products on Amazon and YouTube. (if you want to see someone truly livin’ that life, meet my boy, Riley)
🇬🇷 Florida Man & Woman Nomading In Greece — Say “ γεια σας” to Ian and Amy Anderson, a couple from Florida who has made Greece their digital nomad homehome based to throw in a Greek-related article while I was here, and I think you’re going to like this. Especially if you wanna get the deep details on Athens life and nomading as a couple.
📷 A Real Dream Life — This is all about travel photographer Anna Mazurek and how she actually gets paid to take photos all around the world. Here’s a daily dose of inspiration for you.
🌴 Your Invitation To The Nomad Escape — Alright. This is sick. What if you could meet up with fellow Digital Nomad Entrepreneurs to enjoy a week-long mastermind where you work together, accelerate your businesses, and explore one of the most gorgeous islands as one big fun-lovin’ crew? This retreat will make it happen.
💻 7 Ways To Land High-Paying Clients — Shameless self-promo. If you saw my last email, then you know I just finished an ebook on client acquisition. Since you get these emails, then I want to personally send it to you. Just reply with the word “ebook” and I’ll email it over.
Alright, let’s hit it before the Monday Blues come a-rollin’.
The First Offical Digital “Bromad” Is Here –
And He Wants You Livin’ That Life.
Meet Riley Bennett
Living the digital nomad lifestyle CAN be easy.
But starting it is a whole different story.
Go to any Nomad Facebook group and I’d bet you anything you’d find, at least, a few people each week asking how to begin their journey. How to make money online. Where to go. What to do. Who to follow. And sometimes, the answer isn’t so easy. All because there are soooo many places to start.
It’s really easy to feel overwhelmed, even to the point of good ol’ analysis paralysis — where you’re so loaded with info you don’t even start. I get that. I’ve been there. And most of us have, too. Fortunately, you have some seriously good people who are passionate about helping people make that leap.
One of them is my friend, Riley Bennett.
Riley is many things:
- Amazon FBA pro
- Digital marketer who has made a living DEEP in the Nomad life.
He’s actually documented his lifestyle and travels since all the way back in 2015.
Now, that’s passion.
And today, I want to give Riley slot #1 in today’s Nomad Newsletter.

A Florida Man & Woman Make Hercules Run To The
Hills By Making Athens Their Nomad Base
The whole “Florida man” thing is such a fantastic meme, I couldn’t help but Google “Florida man + Digital Nomad” — lo’ and behold, there were results!
Good ones, too.
Like the story of Ian and Amy Anderson, who left their Florida home back in May 2021 and have set up shop in Athens, Greece. The article, written by Greek Reporter, features Ian and Amy’s life in Greece. Covering everything from how they work, where they live, and how the DN lifestyle has added so much happiness and joy to their lives.
I really dug this one for two reasons.
- Because similar to last Friday’s article about Steve from NJ in Croatia, it’s always cool to hear about people making big moves to work and live abroad.
- I think for many people, especially aspiring nomads, it’s inspirational to see people creating their lifestyle, no matter what age or type of work they do.
If I were you, I’d read this one and bookmark it for your trip to Athens, it goes pretty deep in detail, too.

How This Travel Photographer Gets Paid To Travel
(52 Countries & Counting…)
Travel photography was one of the first jobs I ever heard of someone traveling and getting paid for it. All the way back in the 90s and early 2000s, I think “travel photography” was the only way to make a lifestyle traveling. Of course, so much has changed nowadays.
Everyone with an IG and a VSCO cam app on their iPhone can create stunning photos. But, not everyone can get paid to do it. Which is why it’s so cool that people, like Anna Mazurek, legit get paid to travel and take photos.
Anna has been all over the freakin’ planet, traveling to 52+ countries, taking photos, all while getting published by media platforms like Washington Post, Rolling Stone Australia, and National Geographic.
In a time where people are obsessed with growing multiple income streams, building teams, new businesses, and scaling — Anna’s story goes to show you that just being kickass in ONE SKILL can help you live any lifestyle you want.

How To 10x Your Digital Nomad Lifestyle By Working & Meeting Like-Minded People Who Want To See You Succeed — Even If You Don’t Have A Remote Job Right Now!
Your Ticket To Nomad Island Fest 2021
I’ll be honest, I haven’t been a freelancer or digital nomad for long. Only 3.5 years. But in that short amount of time, I was able to go from scrounging up egg-n-bread money in a dirty Budapest apartment to consistently earning $10,000/month as a freelance writer.
Now, I could go on and say that I’m a “self-made man” and I did it all on my own.
But that’d be a lie.
The truth is I could quickly kickstart my digital nomad lifestyle and scale my writing income because I did one thing — surround myself with people who wanted the same thing as me. People who wanted to live with freedom.
People who had similar goals. That’s why The Nomad Escape’s upcoming Nomad Island Fest 2021 is a smart idea for anyone who wants to grow their careers and meet like-minded people.
Because when you join this festival, you’ll be surrounded by successful people who currently live or desire to live the digital nomad lifestyle. You can be one handshake away from a game-changing client, new business idea, or business partner that can take your work to a new level where you work less and earn more.
I know Michel, the owner of The Nomad Escape, has put on these amazing retreats several times a year. And I know this festival will benefit anyone who joins.

Alrighty, there it is.

Feel free to respond back to this email and let me know of any questions, comments, or concerns.
