    Glad that you featured Conni! I recently found out about her through Instagram and have been following her digital nomad journey as well as her blog posts on Bali. Tim Ferriss has inspired many to become digital nomads and freelancers, and indeed once you start living a nomadic life and experience the freedom of remote working, chances are you wouldn’t want to go back to a 9-5 cubicle job. If you are a female digital nomad or aspiring digital nomad, do check out http://www.womendigitalnomads.com.
