BecomeNomad is a podcast explaining the nomadic lifestyle. Whether you are a digital nomad on the road, or thinking about changing your current life to becoming a nomad, we aim to supply you with insights and resources to make you a better and more balanced long term traveler and nomad.
BN 102: Talking Money & Healthy Financial Mindsets
Are you trying to get rich? And if that's not your financial goal, what is? Should a nomadic life even be tied by financial goals?
Here, Eli & Dan discuss their relationships with money. Citing the wisdom of Naval Ravikant (@naval on Twitter), they explore the friction between a minimalist lifestyle and the more maximalist demands of work life. What does it mean to succeed... And when your answer to this question changes, how can you put yourself in the best financial & psychological position to adjust accordingly?
All that and more on this sorry-it's-so-belated! October make-up episode.
BN 101: Nomadic Soul-Searching & the Power of Yom Kippur
Five years ago we had an episode about Yom Kippur - the holiest Jewish holiday & the only one that Eli celebrates consistently.
But regardless of religious roots, the core of Yom Kippur is that of a nomadic holiday. This day asks us to search within, look without, and examine our lives objectively & introspectively.
In this episode, Eli updates and builds on his previous thoughts - with deeply honest assessments of his own journey.
BN 100: The Century Pod! Celebrating 100 Magical Episodes
7 years. Countless destinations. And now, 100 episodes! Against all odds, we've made it to triple digits (thanks, in large part, to you!).
So what's kept BecomeNomad alive despite virtually zero promotion? What value does it still offer & will it continue to offer? And what does it mean for Eli, all these years later? This is more of an introspective episode. A benchmark, to see where we've been, what we've learned, and where we're going.
A huge thanks to all the contributors who've helped us get here! Many are named in the pod, but a particular shoutout to Bojan Ristovic & his magical audio team, and again our late friend & website developer Vuk Milićević.
BN 099: Dating & Relationship Advice for Digital Nomads w/ Aline Dahmen
This is one of our biggest challenges as lifelong travelers: Entering into relationships. And also maintaining those relationships as we stay on the road.
Seasoned digital nomad Aline Dahmen joins us to give her insights. Her Nomad Soulmates initiative is helping thousands of nomads connect and build relationships.
How does one balance the attachment of these relationships with the desired freedom of this lifestyle? What constitutes a "successful" nomadic couple? Aline touches on these vital questions and much, much more.
BN 098: How Bansko, Bulgaria Became a Nomadic Hub w/ Matthias Zeitler
This is a story of dedication, perseverance, and community.
Matthias Zeitler of Coworking Bansko joins us to discuss how he accomplished his dream of creating a haven for digital nomads. What he and his team have built is magical, the ultimate DN inspiration.
But beyond that, we cover what it truly takes to build a community and what goes into rebranding an entire small city -- a small city that, for many westerners, isn't even on their radar.
BN 097: How To Live Your Nomadic Life to the Fullest
This episode is in loving memory of our longtime team member, Vuk Milićević.
The idea here is to dig to the core of the digital nomadic lifestyle and pinpoint precisely what makes it worth pursuing.
When you're on the road for a long time, it's easy to get lost in logistics and trivialities. But when that happens, there are certain mindsets worth reminding yourself of.
So: Stay curious, and enjoy this belated episode -- we'll be back with another shortly!
